Cancer begins with Acidic Wastes

As acidic wastes accumulate in capillaries that feed the internal organs, the acidic wastes causes a thickening of the blood. The blood is then unable to carry the necessary nutrients and oxygen for efficient functioning of the internal organs. As cells are deprived of life sustaining nutrients and oxygen, they either die, becoming acidic waste, or they adapt to the oxygen and nutrient deprived environment to transform into a malignancy. Cancer thrives in an environment of fermentation due to oxygen deprivation and an acidic environment. This causes the cancer to grow rapidly as it reaches to gobble up the few available nutrients. Kliment

Kliment relates a story about her friend who had gone through chemotherapy for 5 years. Kliment was stuck by her vibrant health and youthful looks at age 65. Her friend revealed that she did not take any of the anti-nausea medication and allowed herself to throw up. Allowing herself to throw up was her bodies way of removing the overabundance of acid created by the chemotherapy.

Polyunsaturates are oxygen deficient and are linked with cancer.

Dr. Roger J. Williams demonstrated that chemical additives poison cells. What is not addressed in healthy eating is the accumulation over time of chemical additives that built up over time in your body and which are acidic going into the body and must be eliminated. Williams further demonstrated that cellular malnutrition is directly related to a major cause of disease. Acidic wastes is a major cause of cellular malnutrition.

“only 20% of cancers are clearly heritable, meaning that the majority of cancers have environmental triggers. We have shown that the environmental (interstitial) pH of tumors is quite acidic...We have also shown that this acid pH induces tumor cells to become more invasive, which is a hallmark of malignancy.” Robert J. Gillies, Professor of Biochemistry, Physiology and Radiology, Ph.D., University of California, Davis

“The tumor physiological environment is uniquely different from normal tissue, and exhibits hypoxia, acidic extracellular pH and high levels of lactate…The physiological environment, tumor metabolism, angiogenesis and vascularization are therefore inextricably linked.”

“ Although the data are limited, pH measurements in humans indicate a difference between tumor and normal tissues.”

“it is shown that normal tissue adjacent to the tumor edge is subjected to an extracellular pH that is significantly lower than normal. This leads to degradation of the interstitial matrix, loss of intercellular gap junctions and cell necrosis. Tumor cells have an optimal extracellular pH less than that of normal cells and are thus able to thrive in the acidic microenvironment expanding into the space of the dying normal tissue. “

“Solid tumors have abnormal, deficient vascular and lymphatic systems. As a result, perfusion within these malignancies is inadequate and chaotic, and the cancers contain regions that are transiently and chronically exposed to low pH, severe hypoxia and nutrient deprivation. These microenvironmental inadequacies are present from the earliest point in the development of solid tumors, and are fully established while the neoplasms are still microscopic. Exposures to acidic and hypoxic environments have been shown to produce a wide range of cytogenetic changes. These include increases in mutation frequencies; deficits in DNA repair; DNA over replication and gene amplification; the induction of chromosomal fragile sites, triggering genomic rearrangements; and changes in gene expression.”

“The vascular supply to tumors is often poorly formed and irregular with the result that tumors may contain regions of poor nutritional supply with hypoxia and acidic pH..In some studies tumors with poorer oxygenation were more likely to have metastasized...the more hypoxic tumors are found to be more metastatic.” [studies on mice]

“the incubation of tumor cells at low pH has been shown to induce more aggressive invasive behavior in vitro.”

“changes in the electrochemical parameters of tumor cell membranes have important effects on their transmembranous diffusion and cellular retention. Changes in these parameters can also modulate the function of immunological agents, and affect the signal transduction associated with induction of apoptosis. For these reasons, it is logical to propose that many (if not most) of the characteristics of multidrug-resistant (MDR) tumor cells could be due to perturbations in cellular ion transport.”

[Now for the shocker....] “Multidrug resistance (MDR) describes a variety of strategies that tumor cells develop to evade the cytotoxic effects of anti-cancer drugs. Tumor cells that have become MDR show decreased cellular sensitivity to the drug employed in chemotherapy as well as a broad spectrum of drugs without obvious common targets or structural homology. MDR is a major obstacle to the successful treatment of tumors.”
