That final phase of its action is seen as neoplastic disease with a full range of consequences. A neoplasm as such is the first important signal informing the body of the necessity of self-defense at a purely biological level, versus so-called "apoptosis" (programmed death of body). Powerful protective and repair mechanisms are active in the organism at the subcellular level, cells, tissues, organs, and systems (immune, nervous, endocrine and humoral). Such structures, by means of additional dissipation of matter and energy, automatically become a warning signal launching distant mechanisms of defense and Environmental Risk Factors on Cancer and Their Primary Prevention 39 repair.
