If you thought there wasn’t a cure for cancer on the horizon, then you may be surprised to find out that Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg already found a “cure” over 85 years ago, in 1931.
Researchers are now looking back to our not-so-distant past in an effort to rethink the actual causes and cures for this terrible disease. This is valuable information you probably won’t hear from your doctor.
In his experiments, Dr. Warburg showed that cancer can grow and spread in anaerobic environments that lack oxygen.
Dr. Warburg theorized that cancer cells can’t grow in an alkaline environment, where high amounts of oxygen are present in the body.
“All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.” – Dr. Otto Warburg
To put it another way:
Cancer growth = no oxygen = acidic body environment
Cancer death = lots of oxygen = alkaline body environment
A healthy and balanced diet can help the body maintain an alkaline pH balance. This means consuming alkaline foods, which are mostly found in the wonderful world of plants! Dairy and meat products are highly acid-forming, as are the dead and highly processed foods lining our grocery store shelves.
The body needs to maintain a pH balance of around 7.4 to survive, which is just barely on the alkaline side of neutral. However, the human organism wasn’t really meant to have to think about maintaining a pH balance. Much like breathing is on autopilot, so too is the body’s effort to maintain a proper pH balance.
However, modern diets have forced humans to live in a sub-optimal state of health. Our bodies are working overtime to correct all the toxic junk we shove into our mouths, slather onto our bodies, and breathe in from polluted air.
Per Dr. David Williams:
“Maintaining this slightly alkaline state is a constant challenge, primarily because of the acid-forming functions that take place within the body, and the overabundance of acid-producing foods we consume.”
Living just barely on the acidic side of neutral, no matter how small the slope, can actually be quite damaging over time. It may lead to such debilitating ailments like diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer.
Robert O. Young, author of the book, “The pH Miracle,” postulates that many modern diseases can be traced back to an acidic body. So, in order to preserve and improve upon health, one must maintain an alkaline pH blood level in the body.
Mind Body Green has a great infographic detailing which foods are acidic, and which ones are alkaline.
Examples of acidic foods include carbonated water, soda, popcorn, chocolate, coffee, fruit juice, and oats.
Healthy alkaline foods include apples, almonds, strawberries, avocados, sweet potatoes, spinach, asparagus, and onions.
To quickly bring your body out of an acidic state and back into proper pH balance, incorporate this alkaline drink into your daily routine:
- 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice
- 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
In a drinking glass, mix the two ingredients together until it starts to fizz. Pour 8 ounces of water over the mixture, and continue to stir until it is thoroughly mixed. Drink this concoction immediately!
Although both apple cider vinegar and lemon juice are acidic outside of the body, they are actually alkaline once consumed.

Cancer generates a lot of money for both the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Instead of relying on the information these money making industries provide, perhaps it’s time to look at alternative theories about curing cancer. Whatever your opinions may be, most folks agree that eating lots of fruits and veggies is good for your health.
