It is considered that the cause of some forms of cancer is the modification of DNA by active oxygen. This suggests that the removal of oxygen from the composition of such DNA will cure these forms of cancer. For the practical implementation of this idea proposed a number of substances that are harmless to humans, but have the ability to penetrate into cell nuclei and bind active oxygen.
