We Know What Causes Cancer – Why aren’t Doctors Taught This?

In 1951, Dr. Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize for discovering what causes cancer. According to Warburg, damaged cell respiration causes fermentation, resulting in low pH (acidity) at the cellular level. Warburg also wrote about oxygen’s relationship to the pH of cancer cells’ internal environment. Since fermentation was a major metabolic pathway for cancer cells, Warburg reported that cancer cells maintain a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic acidosis production and elevated CO2. He proved that cancer cannot grow or develop in a cell whose pH is 7.36. He firmly believed that there was a direct relationship between pH and oxygen. High pH means higher concentration of oxygen molecules while pH means lower concentrations of oxygen. A normal, healthy cell undergoes an adverse change when it can no longer take in oxygen to convert glucose into energy. In the absence of oxygen, the cell reverts to a primal nutritional program to nourish itself by converting glucose through the process of fermentation. The lactic acidosis produced by fermentation lowers the cell pH and destroys the ability of DNA and RNA to control cell division. Normal cells are no longer able to replicate and cancer cells take over. The lactic acidosis simultaneously causes severe local pain as it destroys cell enzymes. Cancer appears as a rapidly growing external cell cover with a core of dead cells.


According to a study conducted at the University of Georgia and published in the Journal of Molecular Cell Biology in May of 2012, low oxygen levels in cells may be a primary cause of uncontrollable tumor growth in some cancers. They analyzed breast, kidney, liver, lung, ovary, pancreatic and stomach cancers and found that even more important than genetic mutations, long-term lack of oxygen in cells appeared to be a factor in tumor growth.


When reading in the book “Pathologic Basis of Disease” this process is not even mentioned. This is supposed to be a book that teaches doctors the origin of disease, and the origin of cancer is not even discussed. This is possibly one reason why medical doctors don’t know how to cure cancer.


Fermentation is something that happens in a high carbohydrate diet. Sugars ferment, fats do not. Fungal organisms attack sugar molecules, use up the sugar and produce lactic acid.


The Food Pyramid and My Plate diagrams are perfect examples of a recipe for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. A daily diet that includes more than 20 carbs per day will without a doubt produce degenerative disease.


The only cure for cancer is to follow an ancestral-appropriate diet that is low in carbohydrates. See the Optimum Human Diet. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are not cures. A tumor is only a symptom of the underlying problem. You may get rid of the tumor, but the disease process that produced the tumor is still present. That’s why cancer recurs, because the root of the problem hasn’t been dealt with. According to the Cancer Facts and Figures 2019 from the American Cancer Society, the five year relative survival rates for all types of cancer is 63%. So modern medicine still hasn’t done very well at keeping people alive with the available traditional treatments.
