Most of all bacteria in the human body thrive in slightly acid conditions. Slightly alkaline blood keeps
bacteria from multiplying because it absorbs oxygen better.  Oxygen hastens the breakdown of
pathogenic bacteria, since most harmful bacteria are anaerobic and cannot tolerate oxygen.

The aerobic cycle is one of oxidation/reduction based on available oxygen in the bloodstream. When
blood becomes acidic, less oxygen is absorbed. Cells need oxygen to metabolize food and convert it
to energy. If cells do not get enough oxygen, they can no longer function normally - aerobically.

Alkaline blood absorbs oxygen in sufficient quantities to oxidize food, convert it to energy and
neutralize acidic waste products, a normal aspect of food metabolism.  Body cells switch to
anaerobic energy production when they can no longer derive enough oxygen from blood cells.

Our blood cells normally attach oxygen to hemoglobin contained in the red blood cells and carry it to
all the cells of the body, where it is transferred through the cell walls. The cells then use the oxygen to
break down food molecules, and release their stored energy as ATP (adenosene-tri-phosphate). ATP
is stored in the Golgi bodies of the mitochondria until it is needed by the cells for their activities. In
anaerobic metabolism, a different cycle takes place. Cells normally function in relation to other cells
in a manner that supports the organism as a whole. Supplied with balanced nourishment, cells
function normally. Given abnormal nourishment, cells grow abnormally.  Cancer is a symptom or
expression of abnormal cellular metabolism.  Abnormal cell growth is called cancer.

Acidic blood cannot absorb oxygen readily.  Slight blood alkalinity is critical.  Even a slightly acidic
system can cause serious problems.  After a while, chronically acidic people deprive their systems of
adequate oxygen and the aerobic cycle switches to the anaerobic cycle, creating deadly by-products.
Instead of the normal waste product of aerobic oxidation, CO2 (carbon dioxide), ketones, aldehydes,
and alcohol are produced.  Some of these are toxic substances used in paint thinners.  After some
time, exposure to these toxic by-products of the anaerobic cycle stresses the immune system,
making one susceptible to colds, flu, chronic fatigue symptoms and eventually, abnormal cell growth
