And by the way I recently received an e-mail from a good friend. It was an update on cancer from John Hopkins. And guess what the update said? It said that cancer cells feed on the high acidic diet we Americans eat!! Surprise? Not at all. Chemo and radiation were said to involve poisoning rapidly growing cancer cells. And radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs. What was their suggestion? Starving cancer cells by eating a diet made up of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts, and a little fruits!!! In other words we should be eating an alkyline diet. No surprise here.
Anyway great movie, Forks Over Knives.

I've recently been reading about acid/alkaline balance. The higher the ph the more alkaline. The body maintains a delicate ph balance. For good health our bodies need to be slightly alkaline - a ph between 7.3 & 7.4. By eating a more alkaline diet [ leafy greens,veggies, sprouts,] as opposed to an acidic diet [ high in animal products, processed foods, sugar ] we flood our bodies with oxygen, vitamins, enzymes, minerals and chlorophyl.
