The Real Cause of Cancer
Dr Otto Warburg discovered the real cause of cancer in 1923 and he received the Nobel Prize for doing so in 1931. Dr Warburg was director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (now Max Planck Institute) for cell physiology at Berlin. He investigated the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, particularly cancer cells.
In his The Metabolism of Tumours he demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Lack of oxygen and acidosis are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other.
"All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen - a rule without exception." - Dr. Otto Warburg
"Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous." Otto Warburg.
Dr Warburg has made it clear that the prime cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency (brought about by Toxemia.) Dr Warburg discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen.
Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an access of H+, it is acidic; if there is an access of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.
There is now general agreement among enlightened medical doctors and holistic practitioners about the need to oxygenate and alkalize the body to prevent cancer and other degenerative diseases.
Dr Keiichi Morishita in his book, The Hidden Truth of Cancer says:
"If the blood develops a more acidic condition, then these excess acidic wastes have to be deposited somewhere in the body. If this unhealthy process continues year after year, these areas steadily increase in acidity and their cells begin to die. Other cells in the affected area may survive by becoming abnormal, these are called malignant. Malignant cells cannot respond to brain commands. They undergo a cellular division that is out of control. This is the beginning of cancer."
"Modern medicine.. treats these malignant cells as if they were bacteria and viruses, it uses chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to treat cancer. Yet none of these treatments will help very much if the environment of the body continues to remain acidic."
Ed McCabe, who has done so much to promote oxygen therapies, says:
"Deprive a cell 60% of its oxygen and it will turn cancerous."
A hundred years ago less then 1 in 1000 people died of cancer. Today in the UK 1 in 3 will be diagnosed with cancer, and 1 in 4 will die; lung disease kills 1 in 4. AIDS, cirrhosis of the liver, chronic pain and fatigue, hypertension, nervous disorders and a host of other maladies have spread like wildfire all over the world.
These staggering levels of disease are directly related to the toxins/poisons we put into our bodies. External toxicity of food, air and water causes internal toxicity of blood, tissues and cellular fluids. This toxicity provides the breeding ground for bugs, disease and degeneration.
Daniel Reid, best selling author and leading expert on Eastern philosophy and medicine, in The Tao of Detox says:
"The fact is that 80-90 per cent of all cancer cases can be traced back to basic environmental factors.
Cancer is the final, fatal stage of tissue toxicity. Toxemia provides the breeding ground for germs and thereby becomes the root cause of all disease...
The presence of germs in the blood is not the root cause of any disease, but rather a symptom of toxaemia....Bacterial, viral and fungal infections cannot develop in tissues that are sufficiently alkalized and oxygenated, and almost all microbes and toxins are neutralised by the presence of alkaline and oxygen elements.
Virtually all germs that infect the human body are anaerobic, which means they thrive in oxygen-deficient environments, such as toxic tissues.
Ever since Louis Pasteur proposed his germ theory of disease, modern Western medicine has become obsessed with the simplistic view that every disease must be caused by the very specific germs that appear in diseased tissues, and that the cure is to kill the specific germs associated with its symptoms.
As a result, modern Western medicine engages in an ever escalating campaign of 'chemical warfare' against germs, fought on the battleground of the human body.
This approach fails entirely to account for the fact that under precisely the same conditions of exposure, some people become infected and get sick, while others do not."
"All microbes have a very narrow range of conditions in which they can survive and reproduce. The two most basic conditions that allow pathogenic microbes to colonize human tissue are excess acidity and insufficient oxygen.
Ask any wine or beer maker to testify to the fact that the bacteria they use to ferment their products require an acid medium of very specific degree, without exposure to oxygen, in order to function."
The Terrain is everything
Louis Pasteur, on his deathbed, finally recanted his germ theory by admitting that "The Microbe is nothing. The terrain is everything."
The terrain is not the immune system, but the normal alkaline and oxygenated environment of the human body. The immune system only kicks in when the terrain becomes acidic or lacks oxygen allowing pathogenic microbes to breed.
This was echoed by Rudolph Virchow (Father of Pathology), who said :
"If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat, diseased tissue, rather than being the cause of the diseased tissue; e.g., mosquitoes seek the stagnant water, but do not cause the pool to become stagnant. "
Dr John Tilden, author of Toxemia says:
"Without toxaemia there can be no disease, retension of metabolic toxins is the first and only cause of disease. The first thing to do to get rid of any disease is to get rid of toxaemia, for it is this state of the blood that makes disease possible."
Dr Theodore Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die says:
"The countless names attached to illness do not really mater. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause: too much tissue acid waste in the body."
The Solution: Blood and Tissue Detox
To cure our bodies of tissue toxicity we need to detox, we need to remove the poisons from our bodies, alkalize and oxygenate the cells.
If you see a festering pile of rubbish, with flies and maggots swarming around it, your wouldn't blame the flies or try poisoning them with chemicals would you? You'd remove the rubbish, clear the mess and the flies and maggots would disappear.
As they say it's a dirty job, but someone has to do it. That someone is YOU. You are the one responsible for your health.
Fortunately, there are simple ways to get the job of detox done quickly and efficiently, with relatively little cost or pain.
Two excellent aids for effective detox are the Water Ionizer and the FIR Sauna. These have been developed in Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The Water Ionizer produces alkaline water or microwater, which is simply the best water you can drink.
A silent revolution is now happening in the fields of health and preventive medicine; it is the use of alkaline water and an alkaline diet to detox. If you don't do anything else for your body, do this: drink plenty pure ionized alkaline water or microwater daily.
When you are ready, you should take up a detox program.
You need to be careful about what you eat, ensure that you eat only those things that are good for you at a cellular level and are easily assimilated.
