The immune system of some women is expressed in that way by allowing the cells from the endometrium to move around without destroying it. This is the importance of our immune system – the quality control. That’s why I believe that cancer is related to the immune system because every day our body produces cells – million, billions of cells. Some of them are defected – this is normal that some of them are defected – we don’t have the best factory in the world. Our body makes mistakes. The immune system is one that will go and find those “wrong” cells and kill them. If it will not do this job then we can develop cancer. That’s why the mRNA vaccines which basically modify the immune system but targeted, they would be a very good weapon against cancer.
