The Cause of Cancer: Acidity?
By Marijana Peric
Incredible Breaking News: the cause of cancer is too much acidity in the human body! The only problem is that this information is not really breaking news. It was research material officially unveiled, for the scientific community, many decades ago by German scientist, Otto Heinrich Warburg. He actually received the Nobel Prize for his discovery in 1931.
Since Warburg’s discovery, nothing has been done by the Cancer industry’s brain trust to implement and develop the late scientist’s work. Instead, the world continues to be lied to that there is no answer to cancer and that the only way to fight this disease is by administering to patients toxic, chemotherapeutic drugs that make victims sicker than the cancer cells inside them.
Very few people in the world know about Warburg’s work because the truth is ultimately hidden or downplayed from the public by the powers that be that oversee the pharmaceutical and food industries.
Warburg’s research pointed out that cancer is the result of anti-physiological forces and an anti-physiological lifestyle. In more simplistic terms, his work determined that a diet that was based on foods that create an acidic environment inside the body promoted the growing and flourishing of cancer cells and tumors. Physiologically speaking, in an acidic environment living cells are not fully provided with the oxygen they require and this contributes to cancer formation.
Warburg said, “The lack of oxygen and acidity are two sides of the same coin.” This means that if someone has excessive acidity, then they will also have a lack of oxygen in their system. In addition, if a particular living system is missing oxygen, it will most likely be linked to an acidified organism.
According to the German scientist, normal healthy cells require and strive for an oxygen rich environment, but cancer cells can seem to live without such a requirement.
In his book “The Metabolism of Tumors,” Otto Warburg wrote that all cancerous forms are characterized by two fundamental conditions: blood acidity and hypoxia (lack of oxygen).
Dr. Warburg also discovered that the cells inside cancer tumors are largely anaerobic (they do not breathe oxygen) and can not survive in the presence of high concentrations of oxygen. Cells associated with tumors can survive only in an environment that is not concentrated with oxygen.
Thus, cancer seems to be nothing more than a defense mechanism that the body employs in some body cells that need to survive in an over acidic environment that has a reduced oxygen supply.
It is important to note that how acidic or basic the body is at any given time depends on what a person consumes in the way of foods.
Acidic or alkaline conditions are measured in the body using a pH scale of 0-14. 7 is considered neutral. 0-6.9 is acidic and 7.1-14 is considered alkaline. In a healthy person the blood pH is between 7.4 and 7.45, a slightly alkaline environment.
FOODS THAT ACIDIFY THE BODY:
* Refined sugar and all its derivatives.
* Meat (all types)
* Animal products (milk and cheeses, curd yogurt etc)
* Refined salt
* Refined and neutralized flour and all its derivatives. (Pasta, cakes, biscuits, etc)
* Bread. (Most of containing oxidized fats, margarine, salt, sugar and preservatives)
* Caffeine. (Coffee, black tea, chocolate)
* Tobacco. (Cigarettes)
* Antibiotics and generally all drugs.
* Any cooked food. (Cooking destroys oxygen by increasing the acidity of the food)
* All industrially processed foods.
FOODS AND ACTIVITIES THAT ALKALIZE THE BODY:
* All raw vegetables.
* Some seeds and nuts are highly alkaline.
* Whole grains
The ideal situation according to some scientists is to have a diet that is 60% alkaline, rather than acidic, and it is thought to be a good policy to try and avoid products that are very acidic in nature, such as carbonated drinks and artificial sweeteners. In other words, if you have cancer it would be wise to alkalize the body as soon as possible.
When one does enough reading and observes the research that has already been performed and published, it becomes very evident that the pharmaceutical and food industries are one and the same body. They have, obviously, conspired in concert for many years to create foods that are high in acid content. Very simply, the more people that are sick, the more earnings are achieved for the pharmaceutical industry.
As is always the case, healthcare consumers need to read plenty of information about these subjects. Through the acquisition of knowledge coming directly from the reading of research journals and other publications, individuals can become more knowledgeable about this and other important topics relating to health and well being.
