Summary/Abstract: As there is a cell gone crazy every minute, which wants to deviate from the genetic code and does not want to die. The cancer cell is the one, which does not want to die. Thus we come to speak of cancer, when such a cell manages to break through the wall of our immune defence system, meaning that a loophole is formed in the immune defence. This is akin to the way the firewall stops functioning for a moment and the virus enters the computer. Even the longest living cell in the human body can only live up to seven years at the most. There are cells, which die daily, some cease functioning monthly while others become dead cells only after several years time. Thus man is a brilliant paradox: it can die as a result of certain of its cells wanting to become immortal.
