Alkaline eating reduces cancer risk!
“An alkaline diet is an anti-cancer diet,” asserts Vincent Pedre, M.D., clinical instructor in medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. As he explains, most solid tumors thrive on glucose, using it to fuel their growth. But the alkaline diet is relatively low in glucose, so it deprives tumors of that fuel. What’s more, research published in Nutrition &
Metabolism suggests that tumors love an acidic environment—they thrive when acid levels are high. Separate science in Cancer Research revealed that a low-acid environment staves off the spread of cancer cells. And while studies are ongoing to determine just how effective alkaline eating is at preventing and even stopping the spread of cancer, experts are increasingly suggesting this way of eating based on preliminary evidence.
