Anti Cancer Diet
Acid Base Nutrition Basics
When a food is ingested, digested, and absorbed, each component of that food will present itself to the kidneys as either an acid-forming compound or a base-forming one.And when the sum total of all the acid-porducing and the base-producing micro and macronutrients are tabulated, we're left with a calculated acid-base load.
One common problem with most industrialized societies is that our diets produce what's called a "low grade chronic metabolic acidosis." This means we're in a chronic state of high acidity. Since the body must, at all costs, operate at a stable pH, any dietary acid load ha to be neutralized by one of a number of homeostatic base-producing mechanisms. Although the pH of the body is maintianed, many cells of the body will suffer.
A cancerous cell is acidic. If your body is in a constant state of over-acidification, it becomes impossible for healty cells to regenerate. Cancer cells thrive in an overly acidic environment. By taking action to become more alkaline, you can make it more difficult for cancer cells to regenerate.
Eating an acid/alkaline balanced diet is the key to staying healthy. Understanding the pH of the foods that you eat is relative to the state of your body's health.
The goal of the acid alkaline balance diet, also known as the alkaline diet and the alkaline ash diet, is to achieve an optimal balance between acid-forming and alkaline-forming foods. The anti cancer diet greatly reduces the strain on the body's acid-detoxificaion systems. Detailed information about this diet can be found in the anti cancer diet book: The "AAA Diet®" by Paul Fanny, Ph.D.

ALKALINE-FORMING DIETS versus ACID-FORMING DIETS
A healthy body is the result of healthy blood. Blood contains the nutrients needed to provide the entire body with the specific fuel it requires for maximum health and athletic/non-athletic performance, like a well-oiled machine. Blood must maintain a pH of approximately 7.4 for optimum human health and performance. This means that the blood must maintain a slightly alkaline blood pH, since 7.0 is considered neutral. Normal, arterial blood readings are 7.4, but can vacillate between 7.37 and 7.43.
Blood levels that go below 7.37, or above 7.43, will cause the body to produce inferior and unhealthy body tissue. Your health and athletic performance will be sluggish, your power, strength and endurance will be greatly reduced, and it will be the cause of many sport injuries that could have been avoided. You may ask,"How are these blood levels related to diet?" The food you eat will either be alkaline-forming or acid-forming.
