Alkaline/acid Balance

From a 2005 email:

Arthur C. Guyton, M.D., probably the most recognized author on human physiology states in his " Textbook of Medical Physiology" ( used to educate medical students): " The first steps in maintaining health is to alkalize the body ( pH or acid/alkaline balance). This is one of the most important aspects of hormeostasis. Changes in pH alter virtually all body functions. "

" The cells of a healthy body are alkaline while the cells of a diseased body are below a pH of 7.0. The more acidic the cell, the sicker we become. If the body can not alkalize the cells they will become acidic and thus, disease sets in. Our bodies produce acid as a by product of normal metabolism. Since our bodies do not manufacture alkalinity, we must supply the alkalinity from an outside source to keep us from becoming acidic and dying."

CANCER cannot survive in an oxygen-rich alkaline environment.
