CANCER, OXYGEN & ACIDITY
from the desk of Joseph Patrick Jakubal
In order for cancer to 'establish' a foothold, your body has to be deprived of oxygen and it
has to become acidic.
If these two conditions can be reversed cancer can, not only be slowed down, but it can
actually be reversed.
Dr. Otto Warburg received his first Nobel prize in 1931 for his
work with cancer cells and his discovery that they were unlike other cells in the body because "they
do not need oxygen to live."
"Healthy cells thrive in an environment of oxygen" while "cancer cells thrive in an
environment of acid."
In the February, l956, issue of Science, pp. 309-3l4, Dr. Warburg, reported that all
cancer cells produce excessive or inordinate amounts of acid.
A cellsí inability to receive oxygen is due to increased
amounts of acidity. Dr. Warburg showed that he could cause cancer
cells to develop by simply changing an oxygen environment to an acid environment.
There is an extensive amount of research showing that cancer
exists, and flourishes, in an acidic environment, and deteriorates and dies in an alkaline
environment. Making the body more alkaline is important in fighting cancer.
Cancerous tissues are acidic,
whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant
and at pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live.
Acidic water can hold very little oxygen while alkaline water can hold large amounts of
oxygen. This includes the water in cells. It follows, then, that the more acidic your cells
are, the less oxygenated they will be. To increase the amount of oxygen in your cells, you
therefore need to create a more alkaline environment.
Nothing is better at curing cancer than making the cancer
To help you understand the importance of proper pH ... consider that our blood must have
a pH of 7.4 - if it becomes even slightly more acidic (below 7.2) then the
body will be on the verge of death.
People with cancer typically have wake up saliva pH values of
4 to 5, Healthy people without cancer have pH values averaging 6.5
Acid tests of the saliva and urine do not indicate the pH level of the blood.
These tests give and indication of your overall body acidity. The body will do what
it must to maintain life --- therefore it will do what is necessaty to keep the
at a pH of 7.2 --- it will rob bones, teeth
and organs of alkalyzing minerals - thus leaving them weak and in jeopardy of
There are three primary minerals that lessen body acidity ...
(1) orgnaic potassium,
(2) organic sodium and, (3) organic calcium. When we run short of these minerals, our digestion
is impaired as is the spleen, liver and pancreas. The immunity system is weakened and we
develop gallstones. The bones and joints go on to develop arthritis and osteoporosis and
many other problems. An overacid body is the beginning of virtually all chronic
The Alkaline Level of the body is also greatly influenced by your emotions. Joyous, happy, love- filled
emotions tend to create alkaline-forming chemical reactions in the body. Conversely,
emotions which are filled with anger,
fear, jealousy, hate, etc. ... create acidic-forming chemical reaction in the body.
