      I’m not a biologist by any means, but after a few late nights being bored and researching i wanted to ask you guys if this is a good baseline idea.
      So from my research I learned that, like all organisms, all cancer cells need oxygen to survive. I also found that White blood cells get there oxygen from plasma. i was wondering if we could some how use this to our advantage. Such as starving the cancer cells of oxygen an keeping the white blood cells alive.

      Good idea. But how can starve cancer cells specifically, without affecting normal cells.

      You would need to target a physiological requirement the cancer cells have that are not for normal cells.

      Cancer cells are cells that divide relentlessly, forming solid tumors or flooding the blood with abnormal cells. Cell division is a normal process used by the body for growth and repair.

      Cancer cells differ from normal cells in the body in many ways. Normal cells become cancerous when a series of mutations leads the cell to continue to grow and divide out of control, and, in a way, a cancer cell is a cell that has achieved a sort of immortality.
