Cancer Update

Some of you may know that I experienced a major health reform in 1999. I shocked my doctor and got off all of my medications, including 28 years of asthma sprays. I did all this in 1 short month. I also lost about 30-40 lbs. I discovered that it was my lack of good food. And you can't rely on the USDA food regime or most doctors for advice. I searched the alternative health world for my answer.

I am always asked how I did it. This post is the best explanation. See my full story on my website.

This is from Dr. Robert O. Young, sent in an e-mail April 2nd 2008.

The following "cancer update" article of mis-
information on cancer has been circulating around
the internet for about a year. The claim is
that the article originated from Johns Hopkins
Hospital as an update for how cancer spreads
and the recommended methods for treatment.

According to Snopes the article did not originate
from Johns Hopkins Hospital and they also deny
the authorship of the following article of March


As a matter of scientific interest and to correct
many of the myths surrounding cancer I have decided to
comment after each statement in the erroneous Johns
Hopkins Hospital article.


1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These
cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until
they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell
cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in
their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests
are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have
not reached the detectable size.

Dr. Robert O. Young states,

"There is no such thing as a cancer cell. Cancer is not
a cell but an acidic dietary and/or metabolic acid that
poisons or ferments body cells. Just like a rotten apple
in a bushel of healthy apples, the rotten spoiling apple
is eluding acid that will spoil all the rest of the
healthy apples. We do not say that the apple or apples
have cancer, we say the apples are spoiling or rotting.
Cancer is not a noun it is an adjective. We do not have
cancer cells or cancer in our body we have acids that
spoil healthy cells causing cancerous cells and a
cancerous condition. When this happens we have cancerous
or spoiling cells which describes the reality of what
is happening to the body cell(s) in a cancerous or
fermenting state. Also, one can test the levels of urine
acidity daily which will give an indication of the levels
of tissue acidity. Normal healthy urine pH should read at
least 7.2 or above. You can also see the effects of
tissue acidity that leads to a cancerous state by viewing
how the blood coagulates. If the blood is in a
hypo-coagulated state this indicates latent tissue acidosis
and a marker for a cancerous or degenerative tissue state.
This simple blood test can be done as an early warning
to any cancerous state in any part of the body for the
purposes of screening and prevention."

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in
a person's lifetime.

Dr. Young states:

"All of us have cancerous or acidic body cells from
conception to death to a lesser or greater degree
depending upon lifestyle and dietary choices. The body
is constantly trying to maintain its alkaline design
while dealing with its many acidic functions. The
body requires energy to run and the consumption of
energy produces dietary and metabolic acidic waste
products. If these dietary and metabolic acidic waste
products are not eliminated through urination,
perspiration, defecation or respiration
they are then eliminated into the body tissues, such
as the connective tissues, muscles and bones. These
dietary and/or metabolic acids that are not properly
eliminated can then spoil body cells leading to an
acidic or cancerous state I call latent tissue acidosis."

3. When a persons immune system is strong the
cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from
multiplying and forming tumors.

Dr. Young states:

"First, the immune system or the white blood cells
do not destroy cancerous cells. They do not even pick
up cancerous cells. White blood cells are the janitors
of blood traveling through the body fluids picking up
smaller insignificant cellular debris from the food we
eat. Second, cancerous cells do not multiply. This is
another scientific misconception based upon the premise
that cancer is a cell. Cancer is not a cell it is an
acidic poisonous liquid flowing through our body fluids.
Dietary and metabolic acids spoil body cells and then as
one cell begins to spoil their acids can spoil other cells.
This phenomenon is a what I call the "domino effect".
Metastasis of cancerous cells is the expression of the
"domino effect" of acids from one spoiling cell spoiling
another cell and so on. This causes the body to go into
the preservation mode by forming fibrin monomers to
encapsulate the spoiling cells together in order to
protect the surrounding healthy tissue. Medical savants
call these formations tumors. Tumors are fibrous
encapsulations of rotten spoiled cells and their
associated acidic waste products."

"A tumor is the body's way of stopping systemic spoiling
and localizing the spoiling to a specific localized area.
Tumors are not the cancer but the encapsulation of
acidic spoiling cancerous cells. The tumor is the
body's solution to systemic spoiling of unhealthy body
cells and tissues due to an inverted way of living,
eating and thinking and NOT the perceived cause of the
cancerous state by current medical savants."

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person
has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could
be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle

Dr. Young states:

"People do not have cancer they are in a cancerous
state to a lesser or greater degree depending on
lifestyle and dietary choices. When you live, think
and eat acidic you pollute your internal environmental
fluids causing latent tissue acidosis that can lead
to cancerous or spoiling tissues."

"Genetics only plays out in a cancerous state as an
inherited physiological weakness where acids may
settle. One is only predisposed to a cancerous state
if they are making acidic lifestyle and dietary choices."

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies,
changing diet and including supplements will strengthen
the immune system.

Dr. Young states:

"To overcome a cancerous state one needs to reestablish
the alkaline design of the body and better manage the
acidic loads from lifestyle, diet and metabolism. I have
suggested for years a healthy body cannot get sick
in an alkaline state. All sickness and disease is
caused by over-acidic lifestyle and dietary choices. You
do not get a cancerous condition you do a cancerous
condition. A cancerous condition is the expression of
poor lifestyle and dietary choices."

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing
cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy
cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc,
and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart,
lungs etc.

Dr. Young states:

"All chemotherapy treatments are acidic. Acidic treatments
of chemical therapy only contribute to an already acidic
state. The key to health, energy, vitality and fitness of
the body is not with the body cells but with the alkaline
environment in which the body cells reside. Destroying
cancerous cells with drugs does not address the real
foundational problem of what causes a cancerous condition.
The true cause of any cancerous state is the level
of acidic dietary and metabolic poisons in the fluids
of the body. That is why ALL treatments focused on the
cancerous cells and tissues will eventually fail with
the death of the body. You do not fight fire with the
acid of kerosene just as you would not fight a cancerous
condition with acidic drugs and/or treatments."

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns,
scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

Dr. Young states:

"Radiation does breakdown cancerous cells which pollutes
the internal alkaline environment causing systemic
pollution and stress on the white blood cells and
elimination and filter organs, including the lungs,
liver, skin, kidney and bowels. The key is not to
destroy tumors with radiation but to saturate the
tissues with alkalinity. When this happens the tumor
will finish its job of encapsulating spoiled or
fermenting cancerous cells, crystallize, harden and
then breakdown to eventually eliminated. This is the
normal healthy life cycle of a tumor in the body."

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation
will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use
of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more
tumor destruction.

Dr. Young states:

"Chemotherapy and radiation treatment is focused on the
wrong thing - the cells of the body and not the acidic
fluids of the body. The problem is not the tumor or
cancerous cells. The tumor is the solution to the problem
to prevent systemic cellular poisoning or spoiling from
dietary and/or metabolic acid. So what is the real problem?
The real problem is systemic acidosis from personal
lifestyle and dietary choice that localizes at the
weakness parts of the body tissues."

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from
chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is
either compromised or destroyed, hence the person
can succumb to various kinds of infections and

Dr. Young states:

"True immunity comes from maintaining the alkaline
design of the body fluids at 7.365 to 7.4. The
white blood cells play only a supportive role in
maintaining cleanliness of the body fluids. It is
true that chemotherapy drugs and radiation can
suppress the white blood cells from cleaning up
cellular debris. The build up of cellular debris
will cause an increase of acidity contributing
to an already acidic state. A person in an
acidic state or latent tissue acidosis will
eventually succumb from the outfections of
acids from spoiling cellular debris/matter and
cancerous spoiling body cells."

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer
cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult
to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells
to spread to other sites.

Dr. Young states:

"I will state again that there is no such thing as
a cancer cell. Body cells do not mutate they spoil.
All body cells transform to bacteria, yeast and then
mold in an acidic environment. Acids spread
systemically spoiling body cells. Cancerous cells
only spoil other cells from their acidic transformations
and wastes! Chemotherapy and radiation are acidic
treatments that spoil healthy and unhealthy body
cells. Surgery removes acidic cancerous cells but
disturbs the healthy surrounding tissue. This can
cause further acidic complications in and around
the surrounding healthy tissue."

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve
the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods
it needs to multiply.

Dr. Young states:

"Cancer cells do not multiply! Cancerous cells
are body cells that are fermenting, rotting and
spoiling other cells. You cannot starve cancerous
cells. Body cells are made up of intelligent matter
which cannot be destroyed - they can only be changed.
The key to a cancerous condition in the body
is to hyper-alkalize the blood which will then force
alkalinity into the acidic tissues and thus buffering
the tissue acidity that leads to a cancerous state."


Dr. Young states:

"Once again we have cancerous cells not cancer
cells. Cancerous cells are not different from
healthy cells - they both feed on electrical energy -
electrons. Antione BeChamp once said, "everything
is the prey of life, nothing is the prey of death."
Matter cannot be created nor can it be destroyed it
can only change its form and its function."

12. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar
it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer
cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,
Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is
harmful. A better natural substitute would be
Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small
amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make
it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's
aminos or sea salt.

Dr. Young states:

"All sugars, including manuka honey and molasses
are acid forming and can cause cancerous body cells.
All sugars are acidic waste products from fermenting
matter. Braggs aminos is also acidic and should not be
ingested when in a cancerous state. Sea salt is
alkalizing and should be included in any
plan to prevent or reverse a cancerous condition.
Sea salt is also foundational in helping the
body create the alkaline buffer of sodium

13. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially
in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus.
By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened
soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

Dr. Young states:

"Mucous is formed by the body as a protection to healthy
body cells to buffer dietary and/or metabolic acids. Milk
is highly acidic and contains a cancerous causing acid
called lactose that breaks down to a primary metabolite
called lactic acid. Lactic acid is one of the major
cancerous causing acids next to nitric and uric acid
from animal proteins. Cancerous cells do not feed on
mucus they feed on electrons robbing the
body of energy. Mucus is the end product of the
body buffering dietary and/or metabolic acids with
sodium bicarbonate. Soy milk is also acidic and
should not be used unless it is freshly squeezed."

14. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.
A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to
eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef
or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics,
growth hormones and parasites, which are all
harmful, especially to people with cancer.

Dr. Young states:

"Cancerous cells are fermenting body cells and
do not thrive in an acidic state but are the result
of an acidic state. Cancerous cells will continue
to breakdown or transform in an acidic environment.
All animal proteins including fish are highly
acidic and should not be ingested when one is
in a highly acidic cancerous state. The body
cannot adequately remove the dietary acids of
uric, nitric, sulphuric and phosphoric acid
from the animal proteins leading to increased
acidity and potentially increased cancerous body
cells. Antibiotics and hormones are both
metabolic acids and can contribute to an
acidic state leading to a cancerous condition."

15. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice,
whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help
put the body into an alkaline environment. About
20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh
vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily
absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within
15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy
cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy
cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most
vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some
raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are
destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F
(40 degrees C).

Dr. Young states:

"All enzymes are acids. All acids cause cancerous
conditions. The body runs on alkalinity not acidity.
Another way to say this is the body runs on electrons
not protons or hydrogen ions. When you are dealing with
a serious cancerous condition one needs to reestablish
the alkaline design of the body. You can only do this
with a 100% alkaline lifestyle and diet! I call this
the alkaline plan the COWS program. The COWS program is
the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Dietary Plan of alkaline
foods, drinks and lifestyle choices. This would include
the four food groups of:

1) Chlorophyll
2) Oil
3) Water
4) Salt

It would also include deep breathing, meditation and
daily exercise.

To learn more about the pH Miracle Plan go to:
www.phmiracleliving.com or read The pH Miracle,
or listen to The pH Miracle for Cancer,
by Dr. Robert and Shelley Young."

16. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have
high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative
and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to
drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known
toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water
is acidic, avoid it.

Dr. Young states:

"Coffee, black tea, green tea, chocolate are all
acidic and do not support the alkaline design of
the body. Alkaline water at a pH of 9.5 or above
is the best water to drink. Distilled water with
sodium chloride or chlorite will increase the
alkalinity of the body fluids and buffer excess
dietary and metabolic acid."

17. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires
a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining
in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more
toxic buildup.

Dr. Young states:

"All meat is acidic, all digestive enzymes are
acidic and should not be ingested. To support
the alkaline design of the body you need to
increase your consumption of alkaline food,
water and supplements. Daily deep breathing,
mediation and exercise are also necessary for
maintaining the alkaline design of the body."

18. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering.
By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more
enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells
and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the
cancer cells.

Dr. Young states:

"Cancerous cells have a calcified covering from
all the acidity. The body uses calcium ions
to buffer endogenous acidity from without and
within the body cell. Enzymes are acids that
negative effect every cell in the body.
Enzymes do not attack cancerous cells they spoil
body cells leading to more cancerous cells. The
calcification of the body cell is a means of protection
against dietary and/or metabolic acidity."

19. Some supplements build up the immune system
(IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins,
minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own
killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other
supplements like vitamin E are known to cause
apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's
normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted,
or unneeded cells.

Dr. Young states:

"One of the most naturally occurring alkalizing
compounds produced by the body is sodium
bicarbonate. I have suggested using increased
amounts of sodium bicarbonate for years to neutralize
the dietary and metabolic acids that make us sick,
depressed and tired. Its inexpensive, safe, effective
and easy to get. I also suggest liberal amounts
of mono and polyunsaturated fats to buffer increased
amounts of dietary and/or metabolic acids in the
prevention of a cancerous state."

20. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.
A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer
warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and
bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic
environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving
spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

Dr. Young states:

"A cancerous state is caused by acidic lifestyle
and dietary choice. This would include your
thoughts, your words and your deeds."

21. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated
environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing
help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level.
Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy
cancer cells.

Dr. Young states:

"Cancerous cells may change in an oxygen rich
state of nascent oxygen, atomic oxygen or O1.
I agree with daily exercise, deep breathing
and oxygen supplementation to help maintain
the alkaline design of the body. I also
strongly believe that the cure for any
cancerous condition can be found in its prevention
and not in its treatment!"

Origins of the "Cancer Update":

Just as urban legends and rumors eventually
become attached to the most famous exemplars
of the subjects they discuss (e.g., any fast
food-related legend, no matter where it originates,
will inevitably be told about McDonald's), so
do many of the spurious medical articles
circulated on the Internet eventually become
attributed to the world-renowned Johns Hopkins
University, medical school, and hospitals.

The "Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins Hospital"
quoted above has been forwarded via e-mail as a
preface to another piece (about the supposed
dangers of using microwave ovens to heat food
stored in plastic containers) also falsely said
to have originated with Johns Hopkins. Neither
article was issued by (or has any connection to)
the Johns Hopkins university or hospital, and
Johns Hopkins has disclaimed the contents of both.

Of the "Cancer Update" e-mail (most of the
information contained within which is of the
"quack" variety), Johns Hopkins says:

An email falsely attributed to Johns Hopkins
describing properties of cancer cells and
suggesting prevention strategies has begun
circulating the Internet. Johns Hopkins
did not publish the email, entitled "Cancer Update
from Johns Hopkins," nor do we endorse its contents.
