No, alkaline diet can't cure cancer
SEE ALSO :Sh6.5b hospital 'delayed' by StateThe fact is, the human blood is slightly alkaline with a very narrow healthy pH range of 7.35 to 7.45 that is tightly regulated. This shows that diseases can develop and survive just as fine in alkaline environments. This regulation is done by the kidneys, lungs and buffers found in the blood. Any variation from this range can cause major health problems and can be fatal if not corrected immediately. Food can’t affect the blood’s acidity or alkalinity. Your blood and body cells don’t become more acidic or more alkaline because of eating some specific foods. The only time your blood’s pH can be affected is if the processes that are meant to regulate this balance aren’t working properly. There are situations where too much acid builds up in the body, a condition called acidosis. This can happen when one is not able to breathe in enough oxygen or remove excess carbon dioxide due to chronic airway conditions like asthma, chest injury or anything that makes breathing difficult. Acidosis can also occur in individuals with poorly controlled diabetes, a condition known as diabetic acidosis. Another form known as lactic acidosis occurs when too much lactic acid accumulates in the body. This could happen due to excessive alcohol use, heart failure, cancer and organ failure. Regardless of what you eat, what enters your stomach takes up the pH of your gastric secretions which has an acidic pH of 1 to 4. From the stomach, the food moves into the duodenum where the acid is neutralised giving the food a pH of 6. The food then moves into the small intestine where it is alkaline with a pH of 7.4. Most of the nutrients are absorbed here. In the rectum the pH drops again to around 6.7 Foods considered alkaline are usually from plant sources such as vegetables and fruits and are naturally high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients and fibre which all play a big role in maintenance of health.
