Oxygen and DigestionThe majority of bacteria do well in somewhat acid conditions. Somewhat alkaline blood tries to keep bacteria from multiplying because it absorbs oxygen better. Oxygen accelerates the disintegration of pathogenic bacteria, since most damaging bacteria are anaerobic (can not tolerate oxygen).

The aerobic cycle of oxidation/reduction depended on available oxygen in the bloodstream. When blood becomes acidic, less oxygen is absorbed. Cells need oxygen to metabolize food and transform it to energy. If cells do not get enough oxygen, they can not function normally – aerobically. Alkaline blood absorbs oxygen in adequate quantities to oxidize food, convert it to energy and neutralize acidic waste products, a normal feature of food metabolism. Body cells turn to anaerobic energy production when they can not derive enough oxygen from blood cells.

Oxygen and DigestionBlood cells typically attach oxygen to hemoglobin contained in the red blood cells and transport it to all the cells of the body, where it is moved through the cell walls. The cells then make use of the oxygen to break down food molecules, and unleash their stored energy as ATP (adenosene-tri-phosphate). ATP is stored in the Golgi bodies of the mitochondria until it is needed by cells for their activities. In anaerobic metabolism, a different cycle goes on.

Cells normally function relative to other cells in a way that supports the organism in its entirety. Supplied with well-balanced nourishment, cells function routinely. Given abnormal nourishment, cells grow abnormally. Cancer is a symptom or expression of abnormal cellular metabolism. Abnormal cell growth is known as cancer.

Acidic blood can not absorb oxygen easily. Slight blood alkalinity is crucial. Even a somewhat acidic system can cause considerable problems. Eventually, chronically acidic people impoverish their systems of adequate oxygen and the aerobic cycle changes to the anaerobic cycle, creating fatal by-products. In place of the normal waste product of aerobic oxidation, CO2 (carbon dioxide), ketones, aldehydes, and alcohol are produced. A portion of these are toxic substances used in paint thinners. After time, exposure to these hazardous by-products of the anaerobic cycle strains the body immune system, making one susceptible to colds, flu, chronic fatigue symptoms and eventually, abnormal cell growth (cancer).
