Connection Between Acid and Cancer?

Posted by Phillip (Norfolk, UK) on 11/13/2006

I have been taking ACV for some weeks now and it seems to have evened out my moodswings and also helped with my irregular heart a remarkable way. However, I came across this article recently linking acid with cancer growth which disturbed me slightly...I'd hate to be curing one thing but storing up problems in another way. Here's the article:

Dear Phillip: The issue of ACV and too much acid has already been resolved. I have always recommended people take ACV and baking soda, the recipes is 2 tablespoon of ACV plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. The pH will be about 7. ACV contains malic acid, and that is what helped with you with the heart, but some people with bicarbonate deficiency can be a problem and with sufficient bicarbonates, this will alkalize your blood.
