Again and again, almost always from new salespeople in our industry, I hear that Nobel Prize Winner Otto Warburg said cancer cannot exist in an alkaline environment.
They use this to validate selling their water ionizers that, they say, ‘alkalinize’ the body.
Problem x 2.
A: Warburg never said that.
B: Water from an electronic water ionizer does not alkalize the water input to it.
I’m going to share an article by Canadian Nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung. It’s one of a series of articles that challenges the direction cancer therapy has taken. I found his reasoning clear and exciting.
The post I’m going to share is about the venerable Dr. Otto. Here’s a little teaser from Dr Fung:
Otto Warburg, the 1931 winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology, had studied the energy metabolism of normal cells and cancer extensively. He wrote “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.”
The ‘Genune’ Warburg Effect. Now we’re starting to get somewhere.
And here is his discussion of the reality of what has become known as ‘The Warburg effect’.
So if you hear another water ionizer salesman tell you Dr Warburg said cancer can’t exist in an alkaline environment, send them to this page.
Problem # 2
An electric water ionizer as promoted by many multilevel people does not add any alkaline minerals to the water you get from it. All it does is concentrate any alkalis already in the water into one stream. So.. if you had 100mg of calcium in your input water to the machine, you’d have 100 mg of calcium in the output water. If you drank 2 glasses of tap water you’d get the same amount of alkaline minerals. How much did you say it cost you?
An electric water ionizer achieves a high pH by the process of electrolysis, which does not create alkalinized water, but a sort of ‘facsimile’ of alkaline water, known as ‘unbuffered’ pH, meaning that it has extremely small effect on the body compared to a simple glass of water with actual calcium minerals in it, which is known as ‘buffered’ pH. The term ‘buffer’ refers to its ability to continue to be available for a far greater neutralisation of acids than ‘unbuffered’ water. Want to try out my theory? It’s easy.
1. Get a small glass of water from your expensive electric water ionizer.
2. Add some pH reagent drops to prove its ‘alkalinity’. It should turn blue to purple.
3. Add a small amount of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) to it.
It will turn orange, meaning it has lost its ‘alkalinity’.
Now follow the same procedure with a glass of tap water with some added calcium carbonate. When you add the ascorbic acid, it will hardly change. It is the ‘real thing’. Alkaline water.
