Curing Cancer: Nobel Laureate Otto Warburg

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

As SparkFriends and regular readers of my blog know, my sister lost her battle with cancer on Dec 2, 2010 in a hospice, while I held her hand. She was only 51, & left behind a 12 year old son, an 11 year old daughter, husband and other family.

Otto Heinrich Warburg, with a doctorate of chemistry, and a second doctorate in medicine, was a physiologist and noted biochemist born in 1883 in Freiburg, Baden, Germany. Dr. Warburg won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1931, and died in Berlin in 1970. He believed in eating organic.

Dr. Warburg was awarded the Nobel prize for his discovery that cancer is caused by weakened cell respiration due to lack of oxygen at the cellular level, and proving cancer thrives in anaerobic (without oxygen), or acidic, conditions. In other words, the main cause for cancer is acidity of the human body. In his Nobel Prize winning study, Dr. Warburg illustrated the environment of the cancer cell. According to Warburg, damaged cell respiration causes fermentation, resulting in low pH (acidity) at the cellular level. Warburg also wrote about oxygen's relationship to the pH of cancer cells internal environment. Since fermentation was a major metabolic pathway of cancer cells, Warburg reported that cancer cells maintain a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic acid production and elevated CO2. HE PROVED CANCER CANNOT GROW NOR DEVELOP IN BODY ALKALINITY OF 7.36. He firmly believed that there was a direct relationship between pH and oxygen. Higher pH means higher concentration of oxygen molecules while lower pH means lower concentrations of oxygen. A normal healthy cell undergoes an adverse change when it can no longer take in oxygen to convert glucose into energy. In the absence of oxygen, the cell reverts to a primal nutritional program to nourish itself by converting glucose through the process of fermentation. The lactic acid produced by fermentation lowers the cell pH (acid/alkaline balance) and destroys the ability of DNA and RNA to control cell division. The cancer cells then begin to multiply. The lactic acid simultaneously causes severe local pain as it destroys cell enzymes. Cancer appears as a rapidly growing external cell covering, with a core of dead cells.

So we have known the proven cause, prevention & cure of cancer since 1931.

It is rumoured Dr. Warburg was awarded a second Nobel prize but was unable to receive it because he was Jewish and Hitler prevented it from being awarded; the Nobel Prize authorities deny this however. The reason given was that Hitler had prevented all Nobel Prizes from being accepted; however several scientists in Dr. Warburg's laboratory were awarded and did receive the Nobel Prize. In my opinion it's clear to me Dr. Warburg was awarded at least two Nobel Prizes.

Dr. Otto Warburg finished one of his most famous speeches, "The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer", with the following statement: “…nobody today can say that one does not know what cancer and its prime cause is. On the contrary, there is no disease whose prime cause is better known, so that today ignorance is no longer an excuse that one cannot do more about prevention.”

Considering fats to be the main contributor to weight gain is a popular misconception that leads to massive confusion and explains why so many overweight people are not succeeding in losing weight. Many people would be shocked to find out that we may gain weight from eating cheese not only because it is rich in fat, but mostly due to its high acidic level. In response to high pH acid, the body creates fat cells to store the acid. Almonds have 70% fat, and pork has only 58%. However, pork has one of the highest acid values, -38, while almonds are alkaline forming, +3. Cucumbers and watermelons are so alkalizing that they can neutralize the acidifying effect of eating beef. This is why it is very important to know the pH index of all foods, showing the food's ability to alkalize the body. Please see the reference links to pH Food Indexes.

The so-called "bad" cholesterol, lipoprotein (LDL) is made by our own liver in order to bind the toxins and deactivate the acidic waste that came from certain food, not to cause arteriosclerosis (3).

Food, stress, mood, and music all alter our pH balance. Anything that is stimulating could leave an acidic residue in our body; any activities that are calming and relaxing could make us more alkaline. Dr. Coldwell believes 80+% of cancers are initiated by or caused by STRESS, which alters our pH balance, which makes us acidic.

A lack of education about dietary pH balance results in confusion among people who are trying to eat healthy and stay alkaline to lose weight and to avoid cancer. Test your pH with litmus paper and you will discover on days you eat leafy greens (kale, collards, Swiss chard, etc) you will be healthily alkaline; on the days you don't, you won't be alkaline, even if you're eating raw. Here is the pH test strip paper I use:

Once cancer has gained a foothold, it does not survive well in the presence of an alkaline cellular pH level, nor in the presence of highly oxygenated cells. As Nobel Laureate Otto Warburg discovered, low cellular oxygen is a primary causal factor for cancer. Perhaps you have heard the name, Dr. Joanna Budwig, or, The Budwig Protocol? Dr. Johanna Budwig of Germany, who passed away in 2003, was Dr. Warburg's protegé in 1951. She continued Dr. Warburg's work and found that IN ORDER FOR PROPER CELLULAR UTILIZATION OF OXYGEN TO TAKE PLACE, OUR DIETS MUST CONTAIN ADEQUATE AMOUNTS OF UNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS. Over a 50 year period, Johanna Budwig had a MEDICALLY DOCUMENTED 90% plus cancer cure rate in Germany with 4500 patients. Some cancer victims that she cured with her protocol were considered terminal. See reference link #5 below if interested in more information on The Budwig Protocol.

    I'm happy to find this blog and am convinced that there are elements of truth. Problem is the doctors are so in bed with the pharmaceuticals. I'm in chemo now, and I can really feel how my body goes deeper into acidosis. I also understand the benefits of keto - but the keto as is practiced commonly does include a lot of acidic foods. I'm noticing I can't eat cheese as much, really not at all. Cucumbers do seem to agree with me better as does other greens. I need to get more watermelon but so far the ones I've eaten have tasted "meh", but maybe that's the drug talking....

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your sister!

    Look up and verify the evidence that IS available. Johanna Budwig had a MEDICALLY DOCUMENTED 90% plus cancer cure rate in Germany with 4500 patients, many who were no-hope terminal.

    Food, stress, mood, and music all alter our pH balance. Anything that is stimulating could leave an acidic residue in our body; any activities that are calming and relaxing could make us more alkaline.

    If you were tasked with designing a study protocol that included each of the above factors (food, stress, music, stimulation, and relaxation), so that you could perform a valid, well-designed research study on the alkaline diet: how would you do so?

    As a person who has designed study protocols, I can tell you point blank it would be impossible to design such a study.

    And if it WERE possible to design such a study protocol, I have a very important question for you. Who would pay for it? The word "Sponsor" is what is the name of the people / entity who foot the bill for research studies. People criticize studies with small patient populations, with good reason; but the higher the headcount the higher the bill is, exponentially. A really good study with 1,000 or more patients, has a bill attached which is exorbitant. 500 or less is only extremely expensive. What Sponsor, in their right mind(s), would pay money to prove the alkaline diet right?

    Let's say a generous benefactor, a real philanthropist, pays hundreds of thousands of dollars tomorrow to be the Sponsor; by the way it can easily cost more than that. Let's say the people are enrolled in the study that's not possible to design; and the alkaline diet is proven to actually work. Follow the money: WHAT WOULD BE THE NEXT STEP in bringing this solution to market? You can't patent it. How do you recoup the study money spent, and, how would you make money off of it in the future? Answer: you can't make ANY money, directly, off of telling people to eat right. It's not a script, and it's not a vaccine, it's not a chemo treatment or other standard-of-care treatment. Follow the money. You can't take a pill as a result of this study; therefore a pill can't be sold. And because a pill can't be sold the study will never be funded.

    Personally I'm an omnivore, not a vegetarian. But did you know that when a vegetarian's blood is dripped into a petri dish containing cancer cells, the cancer dies? And when a non-vegetarian's blood is dripped into a second petri dish with the same cells grown it, the cancer does not die? Oxygen, as described in this blog, and pH, as described in this blog, is what makes the difference in the two bloods, and in one petri dish of cancer dying, and the other petri dish of cancer thriving. Now THAT is a result that can, and has, been repeated as per the scientific method.

    So don't hold your breath for peer-reviewed articles on research studies that are never going to happen. Instead, you must think outside of the box and consider OTHER available evidence. It's there, if you care to avail yourself. I already posted a lot it, above. This is the internet age. We are blessed with being able to find out a lot, if we are willing and motivated to make the investment of our own research.

    I was NOT willing nor motivated to make the personal investment until my sister died. Most of the other heroic doctors who go alternative and put their lives, their degrees, their licenses, their ability to practice, and the ability to make a living for themselves and their families on the line, have somewhere in their personal lives a person like my sister, or a family history of cancer, or other beloved family member or some tragic circumstance which provides the needed motivation and steers them down this path to become true healers. You want it all laid out for you in peer-reviewed journal? Sorry. It's far from being that simple. The bottom line is, we've known the cause, prevention, and cure for cancer since 1931 (tho even back then, they weren't allowed to say the word, "cure"). We've also had The Cancer Industry making money off of cancer, for almost that long, with a system that doesn't allow alternatives to be proven by their system. Follow the money.

    I know this was posted in 2011, but I am just now reading your blog post here. I am curious if you have any links to actual research studies or peer reviewed journals/studies. I am not finding much sound evidence on the alkaline diet. Thanks!!

    Interesting as my wife has had 2 biopsies for thyroid cancer and is waiting the results. Actually as a Christian I have come to realize that all disease and suffering is due to Adam's fall.

    Thank you Dr Otto Warburg for your information about the root cause of cancer. I have decided to join the fight against cancer. I am 65 and healthy. I have friends that are getting cancer. I have started a blog, cancebgone101. I have never started a blog before, so I will be going through a learning curve.
    Here is a company that has several products that address the process of creating an environment that cancer does not like to live in. RBC Life Science has the clinical research. The products are Microhydrin, Stem Kine, Vitaloe, spirulina, HycraCel, and OliViva.
    If you click on each of these products, you can click on the video that explains the benefits of the product.
    I also have an Enagic Kangen 501 SD. Microhydrin will do the same as the kangen water. Microhydrin will get you faster results.

    Enagic distributes alkaline ionizers and filtration machines through Kangen Water. Considered one of the best for producing alkaline water. Check webpage at Purchased the SD 501 Platinum in 2010, very happy and very blessed, the water is pure, clean, and clear. Amazing testimonies of tumors shrinking in size and some cancer cases healed. Praise and glory to Jesus for the blessings. emoticon

    All the medical doctors care about is getting their m0ney and not curing the person. I know because they are doing that to my husband and now he is tired of all the chemo and will not listen to the doctors anymore. They keep saying that maybe this time it will kill the cancer but the treatments are killing him.

    Wow, some good information there. Thanks for your research. I just received word that a co-worker and friend who has cancer has been given one year to live.

    emoticon once again on the loss of your sister. God bless you as you find your way on the path of grief. I think of you and pray for you often.
