I'm not sure I understand what you mean with your first paragraph.
As for your second, yes cancer can go into remission and quite fast.
That doesn't mean the cells were repaired though.
I'm going to try and put this in words, as I have the concept down very well in my head I've just never had to put it into words.
So if something isn't clear just point out which part and I will try to clarify.
Please bare with me.
Healthy cells replicate x number of times.
Cell A splits into Cells A and B, where A is the original cell and B is a copy.
Cell A now has x-1 replications left while cell B has X replications left.
Cell A splits again into A and B(prime), Cell B splits into B and B(naught)
Cell A has x-2 replications left Cell B has x-1 replications left, ad Cells B(prime) and B(naught) have x replications left.
When x-y=0 the cell dies.
Cells also die if when replicating they find an error in their code, there is a cellular suicide mechanism/gene to prevent bad replication.
In a cancerous cell when x-y=0 the cell continues to live and makes bad copies, or a bad copy was made and the cellular suicide gene failed.
When this happens Cell A becomes cell Z a cancerous cell.
Cell Z splits into Z and Z(prime) both are bad copies and cannot function.
Cell Z splits into Z(naught) and Cell Z(prime) splits into Z(theta).
The Z cells do not die of natural causes as the above cell does and can only die if the body has the ability to destroy them (natural immune system),
through the use of natural cyanide found in various nuts and plants(for some reason most cancer cells metabolisms love cyanide and will go out of
their way to absorb it), or through modern treatments which actually kill just as many healthy cells as cancer cells (the hope is you have more
healthy cells than cancer cells so they can stop treatment before you die).
The last option is why they are developing targeted treatments like alpha radiation, chemo knifes, injecting chemo right into the cancer etc...
That's what they propose using the C60 for actually, new treatments that don't hurt the body as much.
Okay so that is the life cycle of both types of cells, healthy and cancer cells.
Cancer cells are basically immortal in the fact that they don't die off on their own they must be killed somehow.
Healthy cells die on their own in time as part of a healthy life cycle.
Cancer is dangerous because; the cells replicate fast, and get in the way of healthy cells.
Eventually there are so many bad cells not doing their job that the healthy cells can't even do their job.
The type of instant cancer remissions that you refer to aren't actually the correction of bad cells but the elimination of them.
The cells themselves can't be fixed, because not only is their DNA bad but their structure is bad.
When a cancer cell is made it is missing parts, or has extra parts that prevent it from working properly.
Think of a square peg in a round hole, but you can't file off the excess material from the corners.
Trying to go back to your first paragraph I have never heard of words, or grammar altering cells.
I have heard of retro viruses being inserted into DNA to alter them.
I have even heard of radiation, and even sound frequencies jumbling DNA so it won't sequence correctly.
The last example is a destructive process though.
So I'm not to sure what you mean by DNA can be programmed by words.
I hope my explanation of how cells replicate, how cancer cells form, and how remission can occur was helpful to you.
If something was a bit off, just ask.
It was my first time putting it into words, and I see life through physics equations hence the B(prime), naught and x-1 stuff.
