Acid/Alkaline Diet for a pH Balance
Acidity and alkalinity in the body are measured by the pH scale of 0-14. Water has a pH of 7.0 and is considered neutral. If your pH is between 6.0 and 6.5, you are becoming acidic and therefore developing one or more of 150 degenerative diseases. A healthy person's pH should be between 7.2 and 7.5. At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live.

Cancer & pH
Dr. Otto Warburg received the Nobel prize in 1931 for the discovery that unlike all other cells in the human body, cancer cells do not breathe oxygen. Cancer cells are anaerobic, which means that they derive their energy without needing oxygen.
