April 23, 2019 / By Latanya Question:
you do not need to cite anything, just tell me if you have heard of or experienced anything in the matter.
Supposedly, cancer cells feed themselves from sugars and acidic foods like beef, so eating a diet with about 80% of vegetables will help by not letting cancer cells multiply.
What do you think?

Yes.. changing your diet to more alkaline and reducing the acidity in your system can help in the aid of fighting cancer.
The 80% alkaline is correct.
I only know from experience that this diet plus proper supplementation has improved my overall health and prognosis.
Actually recent evidence demonstrates that orally ingested pancreatic proteolytic enzymes are acid stable , pass intact into the small intestine, and are absorbed through the intestinal mucosa into the blood stream as part of an enteropancreatic recycling process. Thus changing the pH levels in blood.
Diet and stressful lifestyle can directly affect the pH levels of all body fluids, which determines how well your immune system functions. A weakened immune system, of course, means low resistance to infections. High acid also allows LDL-cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) to build up faster in your arteries, damaging artery walls and creating plaque buildup.
I must add that all body systems don't work the same. What works for some may not work for others. It depends on their environment, their lifestyle, etc. Also alkalizing a body will deplete your potassium so that must be supplemented, too much potassium will lead to a heart attack. Its not as simple as to eat your veggies and fruits.. you have to balance everything or not one thing will work... using conventional and natural meds as well as good nutrition only makes sense.

I do hope you're okay and if you or a loved one is currently suffering from cancer that you are under the care of a good doctor.
The data about the relationships between diet and cancer are still emerging. For example, in an epidemiological study of men with prostate cancer, high consumption of cooked tomatoes was correlated with a lowered risk of mortality and high consumption of tomatoes was correlated with a higher risk.
Cancer cells are normal cells that are dividing too fast and/or not dying off. They can't be deprived of 'food' without depriving your healthy cells of that same food.
No clear pathway has been demonstrated between the intake of any particular foodstuff and cancer. What usually seems to emerge from epidemiological studies is that it is lifestyle factors as a whole that affect cancer risk and recovery. Having good supportive networks and an all round healthy lifestyle seem to matter the most.
The best advice is to still eat a balanced diet, take exercise and limit your exposure to stress. And don't smoke.

It'd be nice if it was true, because then curing cancer woul be easy.
But it's junk science. .Your stomach is so acidic that no food can change its acidity. Nothing you eat can change the acidity of anything in your body except your urine

Pseudo bull science.
Cancer cells feed themselves on the same thing regular cells feed on. They *are* regular cells with damaged DNA, they simply replicate out of control.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could cure cancer by eating our veggies?
