The Porcupine & The Cure For Cancer

Theoretical  daydreaming  and  connecting  the  dots

The porcupine is a volatile creature by nature:

"The North American porcupine is the only species that lives in the U.S. and Canada, and is the largest of all porcupines. A single animal may have 30,000 or more quills."  National Geographic

No, don't poke it.  Yet fear not:

"Quills are released by contact with them, or they may drop out when the porcupine shakes its body, but cannot be projected at attackers."  Wikipedia

"Because the sharp quills often penetrate their tree-climbing owner itself after an accidental fall, adaptation has coated the quills with antibiotic, so that they rarely engender infection."  Scientific American

We have something in common -- affinity for salt:

"Whatever salty hands have touched, from ax handles to discarded wrappings, becomes the target of their needful gnawing. Nowadays the most common attractor for the porcupine is plywood in unattended outbuildings. The curing compound used in plywood is sodium nitrate, so porcupines chew doggedly at wooden walls for that scant, unseen prize."

Moving on... 

A cancer cell reminds me of a porcupine, with one exception -- affinity for salt:

"Sodium bicarbonate is safe, extremely inexpensive and unstoppably effective when it comes to cancer tissues. It’s an irresistible chemical, cyanide to cancer cells for it hits the cancer cells with a shock wave of alkalinity, which allows much more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate. Cancer cells cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen."  IMVA

And here's a bizarre cancer/porcupine treatment connection -- Chinese medicine and "Porcupine Dates":

"The characteristics of Porcupine Dates are calculus growth like a rare “stone” shape like a “date”, that found in the stomach of a porcupine. When porcupine is ill or injured, porcupine will find the wild growth herbs in the forest to cure itself. As the virus is besieged this porcupine dates will grow as the healing progress this “dates shape stone” may form in the stomach. The size and the medical value is based on the duration of time, or it grows in bigger size by the age of the porcupine."
