The Actual Truth About Otto Warburg

Stick around the water alkalizer industry for any time at all and someone will tell you Nobel Prize Winner Otto Warburg said that cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment. If it was true, it’ d be really something.

Sadly, it’s a marketing myth.

Here’s what he really said:

According to an article in the November, 2010 issue of Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research(Biographical Sketch: Otto Heinrich Warburg, PhD, MD), Warburg was speaking to a group of other Nobel Laureates when he said…..

“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes. From the standpoint of the physics and chemistry of life this difference between normal and cancer cells is so great that one can scarcely picture a greater difference. Oxygen gas, the donor of energy in plants and animals is dethroned in the cancer cells and replaced by an energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms, namely, a fermentation of glucose.”

So if you hear the one about cancer not being able to survive in an alkaline environment attributed to The venerable Otto, walk away. They are trying to sell you something that needs FEAR*.

I’ve recently seen articles on how plant life responds to microparticles, how it’s in fish, how massive loads of decaying plastic is being dredged from the sea, how there is so much in our environment we are ingesting the equivalent of a credit card a month.. but it’s the birds that upset me most.
