When your body has higher level of acidity, it is more likely to age faster and suffer from various types of illnesses, with cancer being the most concerning one.

If you consume alkaline foods, they can help in changing your body’s pH level and oxygenate your system. It helps in maintaining your body’s normal functioning and in inhibiting cancer.
The root cause of cancer is what we consume in our diet. In the past, most of the foods that people used to take were alkaline. But the types of food taken have transformed over the years and have shown in the number of cases of cancer patients.
But intriguingly, doctors have not been advising their patients about the kind of diet they must be consuming, which could prove to be greatly beneficial in the prevention and cure of cancer.
The pH Scale
From a theoretical perspective, the pH scale is nothing but open-ended. The general pH value ranges between 0 and 14. The acidic and alkaline range is as following:
- Acidic environment: 0-7
- Alkaline environment: 7-14
Our modern diet contains both alkalizing and acidic components, but if it contains mostly foods rich in forming acids, our diet could be a big factor in causing cancer. For example, generally, our American modern diet is mainly acidic and not something that can be called beneficial for our health.

This is because cancer patients will find it difficult to maintain their proper pH balance, as cancer cells don’t survive in alkaline environment. On the other hand, cancer cells will grow and develop faster in acidic environment.
It seems that the typical western diet is a big factor leading to the development of cancer because it contains high amounts of acid-producing foods such as meat, dairy products and similar foods.
So you should consume various natural foods to avoid it, with the most important ones being fresh veggies and fruits. Additionally, you should also explore foods and determine the acidic ones and the alkaline ones.
It is also recommended to have your alkaline level checked once in a while. Cancer could be caused by other factors, but the food you take is still a big threat.
In the past, people used to consume healthier foods because they took what nature provided them. But today we take processed foods which are loaded with hazardous chemicals and toxins, baked goods, refined foods, and bread from refined white flour.
This type of diet causes significant changes in the proper functioning of our organs, leading to so many health problems such as cancer.
Some of the foods containing high acid levels are:
- Soft drinks
- Ice creams
- Ice cream
These foods may not cause harm to our health most of the time, but you should be concerned when the pH levels in the body don’t have the ideal balance. In such a case, they could cause complications.
Then there are foods which are great for consumption because they are alkaline. Some best examples are:
- Fresh fruits
- Fresh veggies
If you include such foods into your regular diet, you could prevent and even fight the deadly disease.
It is well known that your health condition has a direct link with your diet. But cancer could also be caused by other harmful influences. As already mentioned, our lifestyle and diet has undergone massive changes in the last 40-70 years. The food and drinks we take today can cause various kinds of threats to our health.
According to experts, the biggest culprit for the increasing number of cancer cases today is their diet. This diet contains high levels of processed foods, without almost any nutritional value.
So, as recommended by so many scientists and health experts, the first step in your fight against cancer should be to bring major dietary changes. You should consume more and more of alkaline, fresh and organic foods.
Categorization of Acidic & Alkaline Foods
There are two categories into which acidic and alkaline foods can be classified:
- Acidic or alkaline foods based on their nature
- Acidic or alkaline ‘forming’ foods, based on the pH environment created by them after you consume them
Alkalinity has been found to trigger nerve action, but acidity has been found to help in its prevention. Interestingly, your blood’s acidity/alkalinity also gets affected by the kind of shower you take. While hot showers can make your blood acidic, cold showers can turn it alkaline.
You can balance your pH level by the consumption of healthier diet.
If your body has an acidic state, it will build up additional acid in different areas. This is done by the body to maintain its alkaline state.
Additionally, this will increase the pH value in the areas where there is accumulation of acids, causing the death of some cells. This will further cause development of acids.
Healthy cells usually cannot survive in acidic environment. But there are certain cells that do survive and they will turn abnormal or in other words, malignant. Such malignant cells cannot agree with your brain function and your DNA memory code. Besides, such cells are capable of growing and developing endlessly.
Cancer can develop in the following stages:
- Regular intake of fatty foods, acid-forming foods, refined foods, carcinogenic substances such as nitrates (sausages, hot dogs, cold cuts), aspartame, chemically treated foods, airport body scanners, and X-ray. All of them can cause the incidence of cancer.
- Enhanced constipation.
- Increased acidity in your blood, which could cause increased number of white cells, and reduction in red cell numbers. This is the initial stage of leukemia.
- Enhanced acidity levels within extracellular fluids.
- Enhanced acidity levels in intracellular fluids.
- Initiation stage – forming of malignant cells.
- Cancer promotion stage – additional intake of acid foods. Conventional cancer treatments consist of drugs, radiation and chemical compounds.
