Seldom does a week go by without articles, internet posts, and advertisements which maintain that Nobel Laureate Otto Warburg discovered that cancer was caused by low oxygen and acidic pH. Though often misreported, Dr. Otto Warburg did not win the Nobel Prize for finding that cancer cannot live in an oxygen rich or alkaline environment.
What Dr. Otto Warburg discovered and what he was awarded a Nobel Prize for was for simply making the discovery that LOW OXYGEN WAS CHARACTERISTIC OF CANCER CELLS.
Otto Warburg made some groundbreaking discoveries about the mechanisms of cancer, especially as regards respiration and mitochondrial malfunction. Instead of the widely spread disinformation that Warburg discovered that lack of oxygen was the prime cause of cancer and that he discovered that oxygen as a cure for cancer, the truth may surprise you…
What Warburg actually discovered was that cancer cells were low in oxygen due to an ALKALINE environment making Red Blood Cells unable to release oxygen. Which is a normal physiologic occurance to ensure oxygen get delivered to the cells in the body that need oxygen the most. This ensures equal distribution throughout the body.
In an alkaline environment, Red Blood Cells hold tighter onto oxygen. So Yes, Dr. Warburg was correct that cancer is in an oxygen deficient environment. Which is contrary to the false memes perpetuated by those too lazy to look any deeper.
The amount of Oxygen carried and released by Red Blood Cells depends on pH. An acidic environment causes Oxygen to release from the Red Blood Cells supply the Oxygen to the tissues in need. Just a small decrease in the pH (acidic shift) results in a large decrease in the amount of Red Blood Cell saturation with Oxygen.
Blood cells clump together in an overly alkaline environment, changing their shape like a bloated puffer fish with the opposite occurring when the blood shifts more acidic. Blood cells shrink when the blood shifts acidic which increases their flow while impairing their ability to deliver oxygen.
Without the delivery of oxygen, there is a change in cellular respiration from using oxygen to using fermentation of sugar. In alkaline terrain surrounding the cells transform the cellular structure.
Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is in an Alkaline environment, where cells undergo Cellular Matrix Expansion.
If alkalizing is “So Healthy” for people, why are people getting and staying sick longer and longer? No it is not your Fake Fad Diagnosis du Jour – Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia or whatever the current popular meme is. Most Doctors practice in a manner that is a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group led by professional influencers.
Skyrocketed to popularity by celebrity Victoria Beckham, the alkaline diet is one of the latest vogue diets that have become increasingly popular due to its promise of unconstrained health benefits. But does this diet work and is it the right choice for you? Jump in and discover all you need to know about the alkalizing your body now!
The alkaline diet, also commonly known as the alkaline ash diet or alkaline acid diet, is a fad diet popularized by The Honestly Healthy Alkaline Programme, based on the book, both of which were created by nutritional therapist Vicki Edgson and organic chef Natasha Corrett. This diet emphasizes foods low in acid and high in alkaline, including whole fruits and vegetables, raw foods, green juices, beans, and nuts. Foods that are highly acidic, and therefore forbidden, include high-sodium foods, processed foods and grains, too much meat and animal protein, added sugars, and milk.
Is Alkalinity Really Heathy?
Living things survive in a narrow pH range to maintain delicate biological functions. Thus, it is likely that cells have sensitive systems for monitoring the optimal pH for the terrain the cell lives in.
Current Alkaline Meme:
The human body goes to great lengths to maintain a slightly alkaline PH of 7.35, but poor diet and stress can change the pH to an acidic one in which disease can thrive.
Here are five reasons to switch to a diet made up primarily of alkaline foods:
- Boost your energy dramatically
- Keep your body functioning at its optimal level.
- Slow down the aging process
- Lower your cancer risk
- Keep off your extra pounds
