In 1931, German scientist Otto Heinrich Warburg (1883 – 1970) won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for founding the basic reason for cancer. He discovered that this disease is a result of anti-physiological lifestyle – Dietary who acidity the body and lack of physical activity create acid environment in the body insufficiently supplied with oxygen.
Cancer is Result of the Defense Mechanism Against Acidity
In his work, Dr. Warburg showed that all cancer types meet two basic conditions: blood acidity and lack of oxygen. External acidity suppresses the oxygen from the cells and creates acidic environment in the body. He found that cancer cells are anaerobic and they can not survive in high concentration of oxygen, but can exist with glucose and oxygen free area.
Dr Warburg said: “The acidity and the lack of oxygen are two sides of the same medal so, if anyone has one, than has and the other one. Cancer is a quarterback mechanism that our cells use for surviving in acidic area without oxygen presence”.
Balanced acid alkaline diet and regular pH value prevent cancer.
Acidity and Alkalinity in the Body Depends on the Dietary
After the process of digestion, the body creates conditions for acidity or alkalinity. Acidity and alkalinity in the body depends on the food that we are eat. The extent of this conditions is measure by pH scale from 0 to 14. 7 is a neutral area, from 0 to 7 is acidic area, higher than 7 is alkaline area. For normal body function, our cells should have pH value from 7.40 to 7.45. Our blood regulates the acidity but, we should be careful with the tip of the food that we are consume. Generally, more alkaline food is healthy.

Cancer risk is smaller in persons who:
- take care about acid alkaline diet and eat more alkaline food
- drink a lot of water
- exercise regularly
- avoid acidic food – sugars, junk food, soft drinks
- are careful with salt
In cases of diseases daily intake of alkaline food should be 80 procents and acidic food should be taken in small quantities.
