Phil Matsumoto

—Founder, author and webmaster, OriginOfCancer.com

Phil is a Bachelor of Science graduate of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.  His research into cancer began many years ago when his father was diagnosed with cancer.  After a decade of research, Phil experienced a eureka moment, which caused him to begin investigating the origin of life, and, more importantly, the origin of bacteria and viruses, which he suspected might also explain how cancer originated because cancer cells resemble bacteria in many ways.

When he is not working, Phil enjoys fly-fishing and playing basketball.

Besides his interest in cancer and wellness, Phil worked for many years in the IT (Information Technology) field as a consultant and instructor.

Caution: Do not adopt a pet unless you are in a stable life situation and expect to be so into the foreseeable future. A pet can cause enormous pain and angst if, for example, your spouse or partner doesn't like your pet. Expect to pay a great deal of money to care for any pet, especially if your pet should contract a chronic, degenerative disease. You should not accept a pet into your life if you expect to move in the near future, or have a job that requires you to move frequently or be away from home for long periods of time. And never give a pet to someone who is not expecting one or isn't aware of the tremendous responsibility almost all pets require for generally a very long time.

Please consider donating to a charity such as the ASPCA. Thank you.
