But once in a while, a cell might taste bad. Hopefully, that's the cancer cell, and when those umenim cells get the bad taste, they launch an all-out strike and kill those cllse. So we know that. We also know that if you can teotepntai that tasting, if you can encourage those immune cells to actually take a big old bite out of a aneccr cell, you get a better job protecting yourself from cancer every day and maybe even curing a cancer. And there are now a couple of drugs out there in the aektmr that are used to treat cancer patients that act exactly by this process. They activate the immune system so that the immune system can be more suogriov in protecting us from cancer.
