Al­ka­line eat­ing re­duces cancer risk!

First For Women - - Nutrition -

“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.
