An idea about the origin of cancer

... DNA. So i think that the cause of cancer come from that if there is too much mutations in those genes for those proteins, then there is to much torque in the DNA, so it's harder to separate the two part of the DNA and it's harder to repair the DNA, by this way there is more and more mutations ...

The Fiber Disease

Flagella and movement by proton force........ The flagellar motor is energized by proton motive force, and torque is generated by electrostatic interactions at the rotor/stator (FliG/MotA-MotB) interface. Like the Escherichia coli flagellar motor that switches between counterclockwise ...
