Antioxidant alkaline water benefits in Cancer
When the blood becomes acidified it becomes thicker and is able to transport less oxygen and nutrients to the cells. When the cell becomes deprived of oxygen it either dies or adapts to this oxygen deprived environment by becoming malignant. Cancer cells can live in this oxygen deprived environment because they obtain their energy from fermentation, a process that is carried on without oxygen. It continually grabs available nutrients, depriving healthy cells of available nutrients leading to their death.
The extracellular fluids of cancer cells tend towards acidity. The focus of many doctors has been to create conditions that will not favour the proliferation of cancer cells: conditions that will allow more oxygen to get to the cells. Professor Felicia Kliment in her book. The Acid Alkaline Balance Diet says-Clearly, the prevention of cancer should begin with removing from the body acidic wastes that turn normal cells into cancerous ones. If an individual is being treated for cancer, the removal of acidic wastes generated by toxic chemotherapy could prevent a recurrence.
In his book Hidden Truth of Cancer Keiichi Morishita says. if the blood develops a more acidic condition, then our body inevitably deposits these excess acidic substances in some areas of the body such that the blood will maintain an alkaline condition. As this tendency continues, such areas increase in acidity and some cells will die. Then these cells themselves turn into acids.
However, some other cells may adapt to this environment. In other words, instead of dying- as normal cells do in an acidic environment- some cells survive by becoming abnormal cells. Malignant cells do not correspond with brain function or with our own DNA memory code. Therefore, malignant cells grow indefinitely and without order. This is cancer.
In Japan and Korea they have found very encouraging results by treating cancer patients with alkaline ionised water. They have shown that it results in the reduction of cancer cell proliferation. There have been various theories why this is the case. It is said that cancer cells cannot proliferate in hexagonally structured water. It is also said that that it could be having an inhibitory effect on the effect of telomerase an enzyme that can restore telomere, DNA at the end of cancer cells chromosomes. Similarly the effect of cancer suppression could be due to the neutralisation of damaging free radicals and alkaline waters contribution towards changing the pH in the cell environment.
Sang Whang points out -When you drink alkaline water you are drinking water with excess oxygen, not in the form of O2 but in the form of OH- which is very stable because it is mated with positively ionised alkaline minerals. Two of these hydroxyl ions can form a water molecule H2O and give out one oxygen atom. The alkaline mineral is used to detoxify poisonous acid compounds and when that happens the hydroxyl ion is freed to supply excess oxygen to the cells to prevent the development of cancer.
