Cancer. Heart disease. Arthritis. Osteoporosis. Diabetes. All of these conditions, and so many more, are affecting us today in epidemic proportion. What is the cause of these diseases and more importantly, what can we do about them?
“I believe that all disease in the body is caused by an
over-acidification of the blood, tissues and then the organs.
Drinking Alkaline Water is the easiest way
for most people to turn this around.”
~ Dr. Robert O. Young, Author of the bestselling book pH Miracle
Over the years, acidic waste accumulates in the joints, around organs, in the brain and throughout the body, leading to premature aging. Additionally, as we get older our pH balancing system becomes less efficient. By creating a more alkaline physiological environment, we can enhance and accelerate the detoxification process on an ongoing, daily basis. Drinking alkaline water may help restore the body’s pH balance, reduce its acidity and reverse the biological clock.
Acidosis: THE ROOT CAUSE OF CANCER
Nobel Prize Winner 1931, Dr. Otto H. Warburg
Biochemist, Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg was one of the 20th century’s leading cell biologists.
He devoted his life to studying the causes of cancer. “All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception. “Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.” Dr. Warburg has made it clear 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.
Dr. Warburg discovered that the root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body, meaning that the pH, (potential hydrogen), in the body is below the normal level of
7.365. This constitutes an “acidic” state.
Warburg investigated the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells and
discovered that cancer cells maintain and thrive in a lower pH, 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. Higher pH, which is Alkaline, means higherconcentration of oxygen molecules, while lower pH, which is acidic, means lower concentrations of oxygen — the same oxygen that is needed to maintain healthy cells.
In 1931 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for this important discovery. Dr. Warburg was director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (now Max Planck Institute) for cell physiology at Berlin. “Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.”
