The Final Alkaline Video – Markus Rothkranz

In the previous video, I tested food to show people who think fruits and veggies are alkaline, that they are not. In this video I explain what happens inside the body. There are many misconceptions like the food turns the body alkaline, or alkaline bodies are healthier and an acidic body is unhealthy… or cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment (it definitely can!) and where the concept of alkaline ash came from. Hopefully this video will help clear things up. This is my final alkaline video, because life is too short and precious to bicker about pH levels. Enjoy the video! Here are links to studies mentioned in the video Virtually all pH in the body is regulated through respiration and kidney function…

The kidneys produce bicarbonate ions that neutralize acids in your blood, enabling your body to closely manage blood pH… loss of collagen is strongly linked with low levels of two acids — orthosilicic acid and ascorbic acid, or vitamin C — in your diet… Clinical trials — which tend to be more accurate — have concluded that acid-forming diets have no impact on calcium levels in your body……… Many people argue that cancer only grows in an acidic environment and can be treated or even cured with an alkaline diet.

However, comprehensive reviews on the relationship between diet-induced acidosis — or increased blood acidity caused by diet — and cancer conclude that there is no direct link…… cancer grows in normal body tissue, which has a slightly alkaline pH of 7.4. Many experiments have successfully grown cancer cells in an alkaline environment… while tumors grow faster in acidic environments, the tumors create this acidity themselves. It is not the acidic environment that creates the cancer, but the cancer that creates the acidic environment… while lemon juice may make the pH of the urine more alkaline, it does not have the same effect on the pH of your blood. Numerous studies show that the foods you eat have a very limited effect on blood pH………

Alkalinity driving cancer cell growth and malignant transformation:… Na+/H+ exchanger-dependent intracellular alkalinization is an early event in malignant transformation and plays an essential role in the development of subsequent transformation-associated phenotypes.
