The Warburg Effect

This article sure looks promising for further cancer research and how alt med therapies should be considered in conventional med's research.

Recent article by Bill Sardi. Not a long article; and worth the investigation.

But it wasn’t just conventional medicine that got side-tracked by Warburg’s discovery. In "the Warburg Effect," tumor cells expel lactic acid as a by-product, and this later became known as the alkalinity-acidity theory of cancer promoted by many pseudo-scientists. This spawned a number of books that mistakenly advocated an alkaline diet would cure or prevent cancer. Actually, cancer cells are a bit more acid immediately outside their boundaries than inside due to the expelling of lactic acid.

The pursuit of a state of alkalinity appears to be nonsensical. Not only does the absence of acidity in the gastric tract and bladder establish an environment that is conducive to tumor growth, the control of blood pH (alkalinity/acidity) is automatically controlled in a neutral pH range (7.2–7.4). The diet has little influence over the pH of the blood.

Many alternative medical practitioners inexplicably recommend acid-forming supplements (Lactobacillus acidophilus) for cancer patients, yet they contrarily suggest an alkaline diet.
