Body’s Ph Levels and Cancer

The root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body, meaning that the pH levels are below the normal.

Biochemist Dr. Otto Warburg, one of the twentieth century’s leading cell biologists, devoted his life to cancer research. In 1931, the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Dr. Warburg for his discovery in determining that the defining characteristic of cancer cells was low “ATP energy” (ATP is made inside the mitochondria of cells and is called “adenosine triphosphate”).

Basically, The Warburg hypothesis, also known as the Warburg theory of cancer postulates that instead of fully respiring in the presence of adequate oxygen, cancer cells ferment. Warburg’s story is all about oxygen. He emphasized that you can’t make a cell ferment unless a lack of oxygen is involved. In 1955, two American scientists, R.A. Malmgren and C.C. Flanigan, confirmed Warburg’s findings. They found that oxygen deficiency is always present when cancer develops…

Warburg discovered that the root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body, meaning that the pH levels, potential hydrogen, in the body is below the normal level of 7.365, which constitutes an “acidic” state. While working at the Marine Biological Station, Warburg performed research on oxygen consumption and investigated the metabolism of tumors and the respiration cells, particularly cancer cells. He discovered that cancer cells maintain and thrive in lower pH levels, as low as 6.0, due to lactic acid production and elevated CO2. He firmly believed that there was a direct relationship between pH and oxygen.

According to Dr. Warburg, all normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. Oxygen gas, the donor of energy in plants and animals, is dethroned in the cancer cells and replaced by the energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms, namely the fermentation of sugar.

Dr. Otto Warburg explained that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. He also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state. “Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous”.

The next question to consider is what we can do to enhance oxygen delivery. Well, one method is exercise with oxygen therapy (EWOT or multi-step therapy). Exercising and paying attention to what you eat must not be forgotten either!

It is important to keep the speed of the blood stream so high that the venous blood still contains sufficient oxygen to prevent cancer. Secondly, keeping high the concentration of hemoglobin in the blood. Always adding the active groups of the respiratory enzymes to your diet if a precancerous state has already developed. If at the same time exogenous carcinogens are excluded rigorously, then much of endogenous cancer may be prevented today!

Test your pH levels with litmus paper and you will discover on days you eat leafy greens (kale, collards, Swiss chard, etc) you will be healthily alkaline; on the days you don’t, you won’t be alkaline, even if you’re eating raw. Here is the pH test strip paper:
