The Alkaline Myth & Hype

I have read so many times that cancer can not live in an alkaline environment and all you have to do is to get your body less acidic to kill your cancer. Well after doing some research I came to the conclusion that it is a total myth. Below are two different researchers who will tell you about it and I must say it did make sense to me. In fact drinking alkaline water might hurt you .

Don’t drink alkaline water until you watch this. Learn the truth behind the big alkaline hype and learn why acids are not bad. In fact, we could not live without acids. We are made of all kinds of acids. Markus Rothkranz interviews medical expert James Sloane who explains the truth about acids and alkaline substances and how they affect our bodies. This important video explains scientifically why not to use baking soda or alkaline water as healing methods, despite what some people claim. A very educational an eye opening interview.

 

Is it true that the foods and beverages you consume cause your blood to become more alkaline or acidic?

Contrary to popular hype, the answer is: not to any significant degree.

The pH of your blood is tightly regulated by a complex system of buffers that are continuously at work to maintain a range of 7.35 to 7.45, which is slightly more alkaline than pure water.

If the pH of your blood falls below 7.35, the result is a condition called acidosis, a state that leads to central nervous system depression. Severe acidosis – where blood pH falls below 7.00 – can lead to a coma and even death.

If the pH of your blood rises above 7.45, the result is alkalosis. Severe alkalosis can also lead to death, but through a different mechanism; alkalosis causes all of the nerves in your body to become hypersensitive and over-excitable, often resulting in muscle spasms, nervousness, and convulsions; it’s usually the convulsions that cause death in severe cases.

The bottom line is that if you’re breathing and going about your daily activities, your body is doing an adequate job of keeping your blood pH somewhere between 7.35 to 7.45, and the foods that you are eating are not causing any wild deviations of your blood pH.

So what’s up with all the hype about the need to alkalize your body? And what’s to be made of the claim that being too acidic can cause osteoporosis, kidney stones, and a number of other undesirable health challenges? read the whole article

Genetically Engineering Cannabis for the Pharmaceuticals

Genetically Engineering Cannabis for the Pharmaceuticals

One way this is already happening is in a secret lab in the South of England, GW Pharmaceuticals, which extracts, refines and studies the plant in their six different greenhouses, where they raise 10,000 plants each. At this undisclosed location, GW uses genetic engineering to create modified varieties and then clones each strain. They are already marketing one of their genetically engineered cannabis products in Canada as a sublingual (under the tongue) spray for treating muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis.

If the cloned strains were to cross pollinate with naturally-occurring strains, we could easily see the organic cannabis plants compromised and ultimately eliminated. As the story of GMO corn demonstrates, with companies driven by profit and control, this threat to corner the market is not one we should take lightly. Read the whole article here
