According to Cancer Research UK, Cancer is a leading cause of disease worldwide. Worldwide, one in eight deaths is due to cancer and it causes more deaths than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. In 2012, there were an estimated 14.1 million new cases of cancer in the world. WHO suggests that global cancer rates could increase by 50% to 15 million by 2020.
Cancer is caused by both external factors, such as tobacco and chemicals, and internal factors such as inherited mutations and mutations that occur from metabolism. Prevention is the most important way to live a healthy life. Early detection of potential malignancies is the most treatable. Modern medical cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, are usually difficult to tolerate. They are also associated with a certain degree of risk for side effects. In fact, current cancer therapies usually focus on killing growing cells. However, normal cells are also likely to be damaged by treatments.
In battling cancer, it is important to eliminate the environment that first caused or nurtured cancer cells. Studies have shown that blood oxygen level of patients with cancer is much lower than that of healthy people. Also, a Nobel prize winner (Otto Warburg, 1883-1970) found that depriving a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours made it cancerous. There are also many recent scientific evidence that there is the link between acidic pH and cancer. Pathogens, including cancer cell, thrive in an acidic environment due to the absence of oxygen, making the lack of oxygen supply one of the main cause of cancer.
Blood must always remain at an alkaline pH 7.4 in order to retain its oxygen. When people take adequate mineral consumption, the blood is supplied the crucial minerals required to maintain an alkaline pH of 7.4. However, when mineral imbalance occurs, body fluids and organs become acidic and anaerobic, leaving our body susceptible to cancer. Slightly low blood pH significantly affects the amount of blood hemoglobin can carry, and it is calcium ions in our blood that control pH.
There is a close relationship between lack of both oxygen and calcium in cancer cells because calcium is responsible for delivering oxygen to intercellular space. Therefore, lack of calcium in cancer cells leads to lack of oxygen which leads to the highly acidic environment which cancer favors.
Cancer cells are highly acidic, having pH level of about 4.5. Having enough glucose and not enough oxygen, glucose in cancer cells accumulates as lactic acid through anaerobic glycolysis, also known as fermentation, making cancer cells acidic. Also, lactic acid produced by cancer cells sustains an ideal thriving environment for cancer to grow and spread. Therefore, more influx of oxygen with calcium ions into intercellular space helps reach ideal pH which eliminates cancer thriving environment.
