Thomas Seyfried is an award-winning biologist at Boston College. But I think he needs to change his name.
He name should really be David, because his new book stands up to Goliath.. that booming multi-billion dollar cancer treatment industry. Seyfried’s book, Cancer as a Metabolic Disease, clearly says to our current cancer establishment: You do not understand what is causing most cancer . Your theory underlying your treatment protocols are also wrong. Cancer is not a genetic disease. No wonder death rates from metastatic breast cancer and other cancers have not changed in the past thirty years. Your research is looking down the wrong tunnel.
Sadly, our leading cancer centers and mainstream oncologists across the U.S. have invested so much money in their genetic theory of cancer, that they can’t turn back now. So they continue to tell us:
We really don’t know what causes breast cancers; but when you develop this disease, we are ready to offer you treatment…. that may or may not cure this disease of unknown origins.
Seyfried’s thesis is based on the Warburg Effect, a theory of cancer awarded a Nobel Prize in 1931. Simply said, this metabolic theory of cancer shows how developing an inflamed acidic body can gum up cell membranes, causing them to stop breathing in enough oxygen to stay healthy.
To survive, these gasping cells morph into mindless anaerobic cells that begin to ferment. Now they no longer need oxygen to survive. Just like a compost heap, these cells need an acid environment (think glucose, sugar, inflammation from chemical & animal hormones & chronic stress) to survive, thrive and duplicate themselves mindlessly. Presto…. tumors can now begin to form.
Instead of adopting Warburg’s metabolic theory, the western main stream medical profession has chosen to believe in another theory of the cause of cancer…something called the mutation theory. So now we often hear doctors say:
“Gee we just don’t know exactly what has caused your healthy breast cells to spontaneously mutate and become breast cancer cells. But we can try to get rid of all of those cells using surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy. Hopefully our treatment will cure you of this disease of unknown origins.”
An MD by the name of Georgia Ede, who is also the new psychiatrist at Smith College, heard Tom Seyfried describe the concept of cancer as a metabolic disease this past August.
Dr Ede has now done a great job of translating Seyfreid’s and Warburg’s theories on the main cause of cancer into language that most of us should be able to follow pretty well.
To understand more about cancer as a metabolic disease, I recommend you read Ede’s 4 part article.
Meanwhile, if you are trying to find ways to stop breast cancer before it can start, it is important to at least find out if your body is currently acidic or alkaline.
Cancer, it turns out, is unable to grow in an alkaline environment!
Go buy a package of pH strips and measure your first and second urine of the morning… or your saliva. If you are measuring anywhere between 6.5-8.0 …congratulations!!! You are doing something right.
A pH reading of 7.2 is the ideal.
If the pH strip measures lower than 6.5 most of the time, your body is acidic. This means your body could be fertile ground for cancer cells to thrive unless you start adding much more alkaline foods ( greens, avocados, sprouts, cucumbers) and less acidic foods (sugar based foods, white rice, white bread, dead meat, dairy, coffee, alcohol, diet and sugar sodas) …to your daily diet.
Try reading Acid Alkaline Diet for Dummies and see if you can change your diet enough for your urine or saliva to start measuring between 6.5 and 8.0 on the pH scale at any point during the day.

Good Luck everybody!!!
