Dr. Otto H. Warburg is a Nobel Prize winner and he spent his entire life in an effort to find the cause of cancer.
Dr. Warburg was one of the leading biologists in the 20th century, and his study showed that acidity is the root cause of cancer. That means that the pH in the body is below 7.365, which is the normal level, and every value lower than this is considered to be acidic.
The doctor studied the metabolism of tumour cells and the respiration of cells and found that cancer cells survive in environment with a lower pH, as low as 6.0. The production of lactic acid and high levels of CO2 increase the acidity.
Dr. Warburg strongly believed that there was a direct connection between the pH value and the oxygen level. Any pH value higher than 7.365 is alkaline, is followed by a higher concentration of oxygen molecules, and lower pH value, which is acidic, means lower oxygen level… and healthy cells need that oxygen to survive.
In 1931 Dr. Warburg received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his amazing discovery. He outlined, “Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline”.
In his work, The Metabolism of Tumours, Dr. Warburg explained 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. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”
Dr. Warburg’s study showed that oxygen deficiency is the root cause of cancer, meaning that acidity increases as the levels of oxygen decrease. He also found that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot thrive in aerobic conditions, or in an alkaline state.
