In your arteriosclerosis article you stated, "Cancer is known to be accelerated by decreased blood flow to the affected tissues." Please clarify, for me, why shark cartilage supplements reduce mutagenic tumor growths by reducing blood flow.

Cancerous growths require a blood supply and stimulate angiogenesis, i.e. new vessel formation, to obtain that blood supply. Inhibition of angiogenesis is apparently a characteristic of some of the components of shark cartilage. Cancer cells produce energy predominantly anaerobically therefore they have a natural ability to do well with lowered blood (oxygen) supply. However if their blood supply falls below some critical limit, their energy supply becomes insufficient and they will die.
