Nearly 40 percent of all breast cancer cases in the United States would be prevented if women kept a healthy alkaline weight, eliminated alcohol, exercised more and breastfed their babies, according to a report published on Tuesday.
The report, which reviewed 81 new studies on the links between lifestyle and cancer, showed that 70,000 breast cancer cases could be prevented in the United States alone every year.
“We are now more certain than ever that by maintaining a healthy weight, being physically active and limiting the amount of alcohol they drink, women can dramatically reduce their risk,” said Dr. Martin Wiseman of the American Institute for Cancer Research/World Cancer Research Fund, who led the study.
Susan Higginbotham, also of the institute, said, “We estimate that almost 40 per cent of breast cancer cases in the United States, or about 70,000 cases every year, could be prevented by making these straightforward everyday changes.”
The report recommends that people exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. Men should limit alcohol to two drinks a day, and women should have just one.
According to Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center, “women who eliminate, dairy, cheese, bread, beef, chicken, pork, turkey, alcohol, coffee, tea, tobacco, high sugar fruit, sugary desserts, vinegar, soy sauce, corn, peanuts, and eggs and manage their stress loads while exercising at least 60 minutes a day while eating liberal amounts of electron rich alkaline vegetables and fruit can eliminate their risk for breast cancer.”
Breast cancer kills 400,000 women and a few men globally every year — 40,000 in the United States alone.
Many studies have showed that a low-acid diet, regular exercise, keeping a lean weight, and breastfeeding babies can prevent breast cancer.
Why? According to Dr. Young, “breast cancer is an acidic condition of the breast tissue. When the body cannot remove its own metabolic acidic waste products they are then deposited into the colloidal connective tissue and the fatty tissues, i.e., breast tissue to protect the organs that sustain life. When you reduce the acid loads in the body through urination, perspiration (exercise), respiration, and defecation you prevent ANY and ALL cancerous conditions.”

Dr. Young, (cc Dr. Rick McKinney),
It’s me, Megan McNealy Graves, and I wanted to thank you for a wonderful retreat at your ranch on June 4-7th. I wanted to give you an update on my progress!
As you know, I have suffered from diagnosed Rheumatoid Arthiritis for the past four years– the first two years (from 5/5/05), Plaquenil wiped out all the symptoms, but for the past two years, I have lived with an incredible amount of pain–it first started in my knees, then hands, wrists, ankles and feet. This spring it started also in my shoulders, neck and jaw. My main Rheumatologist, Dr. Clare Targoff, has really encouraged me for the past two years to get on Methotrexate ASAP, and then she assumed, since I have a “moderate to severe” case, that I would then need yet the next level of pharmaceuticals (Enbrel, etc)
Before I came to the retreat at your ranch, I was at a real “low”. I was tempted to just give in and take the toxic drugs.
But then I thought I would give your diet another chance. I read your book, The PH Miracle, last year, and had written Dr. McKinney at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine about how well I was feeling last summer. He was very encouraged. But, then came a very busy work load this fall, and I fell a bit away from your program–instead of the purely aklaline diet, I started to eat fruit again, glass of wine here and there. I wasn’t doing the oil and salts and exercise and alkaline water either, which I know now is a huge part.
Since I was at your ranch, and since I have committed to your suggestions, my symptoms have really started to reverse.
Day 2, June 5th, the day you did my blood analysis. I was nowhere near as tired.
Day 3, June 6th, during the night, not so painful to turn over (in my shoulders), hands and feet not as painful and stiff in the morning, can completely close left hand into fist (first time in a year). This is the day, you remember that we RAN together 1.5 miles. I have not run in 3 years, as it has been too painful. You saw me– I looked pretty good! :-) I didn’t have any soreness in any joints after. Your recommendation to work out everyday, really sweat, is something that I took to heart and I have been exercising daily since.
Day 4, balls of feet don’t have as much pain walking
Day 5, June 10, at daughter’s class picnic, opened three plastic water bottles by myself (first time in two years)–oddly enough, I opened the caps and didn’t notice any pain. Can do muscle stretch fully on left leg and 3/4 way on right (normally can’t put my ankle at this angle)
Day 10, at dinner with clients, I was able to walk down stairs at restaurant foot over foot rather than two feet on each stair like usual. Did 25 minutes on elliptical machine at very good pace with no pain. In afternoon held tennis racket and with some pain, I was able to play “mini tennis”. Not able to do full court.
Day 12, went running and had no foot pain or knee pain as long as I stayed on flat surface (no tilts)
Today is Day 13, and I am the same as yesterday. I keep looking for all signs of improvement. I am already starting to forget how horrible I was feeling two weeks ago.
I am so encouraged, and I want to thank you for your recommendations. Thank you for telling me what is really wrong with me. I will send Dr McKinney the 41 page report that you made for me, complete with the photos of my live blood analysis. I will have that in the mail to him tomorrow.
Lastly, my mom and dad, Margaret and Ken, had a wonderful time at the retreat also. Dad has lost 20 lbs as of yesterday, and Mom has lost 12 lbs. They said that they have so much more energy and are thinking so clearly.
Vegetarians are generally less likely than meat eaters to develop a cancerous condition but this does not apply to all forms of the dis-ease, a major study has found.
The study involving 60,000 people found those who followed a vegetarian diet developed notably fewer cancerous conditions of the blood, bladder and stomach.
The study is published in the British Journal of Cancer.
Researchers from universities in the UK and New Zealand followed 61,566 British men and women. They included meat-eaters, those who ate fish but not meat, and those who ate neither meat nor fish.
Those who ate no meat or fish were less likely to develop a cancerous condition than those that ate meat or those who ate fish but not meat.
Eating a diet high in red meat and dairy products is linked to an increased risk of a cancerous pancreas, a US study has suggested.
Researchers followed 500,000 people who had completed a food diary for an average of six years.
The Journal of the National Cancer Institute paper found those who had the most animal fats in their diet had a higher risk of developing a cancerous condition.
UK experts said cutting down on the animal fats was a way of reducing risk.
There has previously been confusion over whether there was a link between animal fats and a cancerous pancreas, with different studies reaching opposite conclusions.
About 7,000 people are diagnosed with a cancerous pancreas in the UK each year, with smoking being the biggest risk factor.
The prognosis is poor – the time between diagnosis and death is usually about six months.
The key to preventing any cancerous condition is to maintain the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet.
Low levels of vitamin D are known to nearly double the risk of cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes, and researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis now think they know why.
They have found that diabetics deficient in vitamin D can’t process cholesterol normally, so it builds up in their blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke. The new research has identified a mechanism linking low vitamin D levels to heart disease risk and may lead to ways to fix the problem, simply by increasing levels of vitamin D.
“Vitamin D inhibits the uptake of cholesterol by cells called macrophages,” says principal investigator Carlos Bernal-Mizrachi, M.D., a Washington University endocrinologist at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. “When people are deficient in vitamin D, the macrophage cells eat more cholesterol, and they can’t get rid of it. The macrophages get clogged with cholesterol and become what scientists call foam cells, which are one of the earliest markers of atherosclerosis.”
According to Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center explains, “Vitamin D deficiency is due to an increase in metabolic and dietary acids. This will cause the increase in cholesterol to bind up the excess acidity to protect the cells, tissues and organs that sustain life. When you increase blood plasma Vitamin D and you will naturally reduce dietary and metabolic acids and the need for the acid binding benefits of cholesterol. This then prevents the potential of acid build-up on the walls of the arteries and thus Vitamin D becomes an excellent prevention against atherosclerosis.”
