pH and Cancer: Acidic pH Levels Can Lead To Cancer

Always a discussion of acids and bases is not complete without an explanation of "pH". Everyone has heard of pH but few actually know what that means. First of all "pH" gets its name from "potential for Hydrogen" more specifically, the hydrogen ion (H+). So it's a scale that reflects the concentration of H+.
The numbers in the scale is counting the number of zeros in the denominator of a fraction. So a neutral pH of 7 is 1 over 10,000,000 (which has 7 zeros). pH 3 means 1 over 1,000 and so forth. Being a fraction, the more zeros the smaller the number. 1/1,000 is a bigger amount than 1/10,000,000, right? So the scale is reverse. Higher pH means smaller amounts of H+.
So we have the fraction, but a fraction of what? Well, it's the preferred way of counting in chemistry, which is the mole. Since this is concentration, it's moles per liter (molar=M). So pH is counting the moles of the H+ ion per liter but as a fraction. So pH3 is 1/1000 mole of H+ ions per liter. This is also written as 0.001 moles/liter (M) or 10-3 moles/liter (M).

pH and Cancer: Acidic pH Levels Can Lead To Cancer... Normalizing pH Levels Can Stop Cancer In Its Tracks
There is plenty of research showing the link between acidic pH and cancer. Cancer thrives in an acidic environment and cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Cancer cells make your body even more acidic as they produce lactic acid. So if you have cancer, your pH levels are low and your body is too acidic.
Taking action to make your body more alkaline is vital in the battle against cancer.

The majority of food and drinks we consume are acidic, such as meat, grains and sugar, with colas and other soft drinks being highly acidic. So unless you have been eating a very healthy diet, full of fresh fruit and vegetables, chances are good your body is too acidic, providing the perfect environment for cancer to grow.
Actually, too much acidity is an underlying factor in many degenerative diseases -- diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia and more. A basic maxim of natural physicians is: Balance the biological terrain. Do this first, then everything can come back to normal.
Taking medicines or supplements for cancer while your pH is highly acidic is a bit like washing dishes in a sink of dirty water, even when you put in plenty of soap, you can't get the dishes clean.
According to Keiichi Morishita in his book, Hidden Truth of Cancer, when your blood starts to become acidic, your body deposits acidic substances (usually toxins) into cells to allow the blood to remain slightly alkaline. This causes your cells to become more acidic and toxic, which results in a decrease of their oxygen levels, and harms their DNA and respiratory enzymes.
Over time, he theorizes, these cells increase in acidity and some die. These dead cells themselves turn into acids. However, some of these acidified cells may adapt in that environment. In other words, instead of dying - as normal cells do in an acid environment - some cells survive by becoming abnormal cells.
These abnormal cells are called malignant cells. Malignant cells do not correspond with brain function nor with our own DNA memory code. Therefore, malignant cells grow indefinitely and without order. This is cancer.
