Cancer is recognised as the leading cause of death in the main developed countries, with an estimated 12.7 million cases and 7.6 million deaths worldwide in 2008.
Why is it, that despite the billions of dollars invested into Cancer Research every year, "Modern Medicine" has not yet been able to produce anything to effectively treat cancer?
"Is the American Cancer Society more interested in cancer profit than cancer prevention?"
This is the question that was posed in a recent article that went on to show that Cancer agencies reportedly put a far greater financial and profit emphasis on chemotherapy and radiation research than on life-saving prevention techniques. In addition it appears that "Modern Medicine" and "Big Pharma" invest a lot of money and effort to discredit any doctors or healthcare practitioners that either research or practice effective alternative medicine cancer treatments.
It is interesting to note that R. Webster Kehr of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation. Inc., and author of the highly respected Cancer Tutor Web site, covers over 300 natural successful cancer treatments, many of which address the pH Blood Balance & Cancer process.
Contrary to claims made by "Modern Medicine", the cause of cancer is easy to understand and is preventable and reversible without the dangerous "modern medicine" therapies used as standard treatments in most countries. These aggressive and toxic treatments are based on the American standard cancer treatment which include, - Surgery (slash), Radiation (burn) and Chemotherapy (poison).
Elaine Feuer, the author of "Innocent Casualties" argues, "Instead of allotting money towards the prevention of cancer, the medical establishment prescribes chemotherapy and radiation (which is very expensive and even toxic)".
Samuel S. Epstein, author of "The Politics of Cancer", argues that the American Cancer Society 's "priorities remain fixated on damage control - screening, diagnosis and treatment".
Although these processes are important the primary focus for all of us should be to prevent cancer.
This is where balancing the blood's pH becomes absolutely critical. Lets first understand what pH Balance is all about.
Acidic-Alkaline pH Balance
It is very important to have a chemical balance between acid and alkaline conditions, both in the blood and in the body tissues. However, with the acidic "Modern Lifestyles" that most of us live, body tissues become too acidic very easily, and this acidic imbalance creates the ideal internal conditions for disease and especially cancer, to thrive. This acid/alkaline relationship is known as pH.
pH(potential hydrogen) is a measure of the "acidity" or "alkalinity" of a solution.
The pH scale is from 1 to 14 with 7 being neutral and 1 to 7 being acidic (low on oxygen) and 7-14 being alkaline (high on oxygen). Remember oxygen is critical to the well being of the cells and the prevention of disease.
The pH of the body has a profound effect on the inner terrain of the body and the pH of the blood and the tissues should ideally be 7.365 which will result in long lasting health and wellness.
The Cause of Cancer
It is interesting to note that in the 1930's, Nobel Prize Winner Dr Otto Warburg, established in his research that cancer only lives in an "acidic" (low oxygen) environment like most bacteria. Every time Otto Warburg lowered the oxygen level by 35% in a healthy cell, it became cancerous.
Based on his work he found that cancer cells cannot survive in high levels of oxygen (alkaline pH) and that increased amounts of oxygen prevented the spread of cancer cells and will eventually cause them to die.
Subsequently, Robert Barefoot established that at a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at a pH of 8.5 cancer cells will die.
As you have seen, "ACIDOSIS" is the prime cause of cancer. So!, it is important for you to fully understand the process of alkalizing your body and the critical role a properly alkalized body plays in restoring and maintaining your overall health. Everything in our bodies, from cells to organs only function properly in exact proportion to the amount of alkaline and acid levels in our system.
Health and Wellness through balancing your pH
I hope this short simplified explanation will enable you to start making the necessary changes to your lifestyle to prevent you from getting cancer.
