The Root Cause of Cancer 

Biochemist Otto Heinrich Warburg, one of the twentieth century’s leading cell 

biologists, discovered that the root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body,

 meaning that the pH, potential hydrogen, in the body is below the normal level of

 7.365, which constitutes an “acidic” state. Warburg investigated the metabolism of

 tumors and the respiration of cells and discovered that cancer cells maintain and

 thrive in a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic acid production and elevated CO2.

 He firmly believed that there was a direct relationship between pH and oxygen.

 Higher pH, which is Alkaline, means higher concentration of oxygen molecules,

 while lower pH, which is acidic, means lower concentrations of oxygen…the same

 oxygen that is needed to maintain healthy cells.

 In 1931 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for this important discovery. 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. Below are some direct quotes by Dr.

 Warburg during medical lectures where he was the keynote speaker:

 “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

Warburg 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.“

“Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”

 Dr. Warburg has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency,

 which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr. Warburg also discovered that

 cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the

 presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.

“Peak performance and optimal health depend on the body’s ability to maintain a slightly alkaline state in virtually all of our cells and tissues…
