Your body usually regulates the pH of your blood stream within a small range of 7.35 to 7.45... which is slightly "basic" or "alkaline" as opposed to acidic... Regardless of what you eat, your body will always use its numerous methods to keep you in this range.. Besides cancer cells, many of our body cells and organs will only function in certain pH ranges.
It is more important to look at your overall diet and other environmental factors to keep your body in a healthy state and to help "fight" or to provide a more unfavorable environment for cancers to take hold and flourish... Sometimes, DNA may just be against us...
In my opinion, many of the "cures" and "treatments" suggested or advertised to us are really just aboiut $$... and that includes both the naturalpathic and traditional medical fields... It is a fact we all have to deal with... separating the fact from the bs... separating the truly beneficial from the ineffectual... Just like many providers of potential "cures" are trying to separate $$ from us to them... This problem is further complicated by the fact we each can respond differently to treatments...
