It never ceases to amaze me how often conventional doctors fail to address the correlation between food and cancer prevention and treatment. Your diet can not only cause cancer, but it could also prevent or cure you from cancer. Meat, dairy, refined sugar, and processed foods are all known to increase one’s risk of cancer, and all of these are considered acid-forming foods. Cancer is a systemic, metabolic disease that forms as a result of nutrient deficiencies, high amounts of toxins, and usually a pH level that’s too low, meaning the body is too acidic. In order to neutralize the constant acid generation, we need to supply the body with more alkaline foods. An alkaline diet may be your best defence against cancer.
