Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Because of constant changes in lifestyle, the risk of having such disease is increasing.
Last week, I read an article shared by one of my FB friends about cancer, how it grows and how to counteract this deadly disease.

Here are the key points about cancer.
Cancer cell survives in acidic nature.
Biochemist Otto Heinrich Warburg found in his study that cancer cells live in a body lower pH or acidic system. Normal body's pH is about 7.37 or slightly alkaline. Lowering the body's pH to about 6.0 can be a good environment for cancer cells to live.
Cancer lives in anaerobic condition.
Once body's pH lowers, it may result to production of more carbon dioxide thus reducing the level of oxygen. When the oxygen level of a normal cell is lowered by about 35%, the risk of turning normal cell into cancerous one is very high.
Diet is a big factor.
Processed and refined foods like sugars and grains can shift body's pH from alkaline to acidic. Aside from cancer, other illness may be associated with acidic body. Osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and acid reflux to name a few. Bacteria and viruses can also thrive in an acidic medium.

How can we restore our body’s alkaline nature?
Here is a natural way to get back to body’s pH balance which may help fight and prevent cancer.
You will need:
1/3 tablespoon of baking soda
2 tablespoons of lemon juice or apple-cider vinegar (with the mother).

Mix the ingredients in 250ml of cold water and mix well. You will notice fizz once you stir the mixture. Drink the mixture at once. This will naturally reduce the acidity in the body reducing the risk of getting diseases associated with acidic condition.

Aside from this procedure, avoiding fruit and vegetable seeds can also reduce the acidity in the body. Seeds are normally high in uric acid which may add in lowering the pH level of the body. Eating more green, leafy vegetables is another option to keep your body’s pH to alkaline level.
Prevent cancer by maintaining an alkaline body.
