Quote from Dr. Robert Young (

1) What is the origin of cancer or where does cancer begin?

Cancerous tissue, above all other consequences of choice, has countless secondary causes. But even for a cancerous condition there is only ONE PRIME ORIGIN and CAUSE. I have simply summarized this origin and cause of cancerous tissue in a few words. The prime origin and cause of cancerous tissue is the over-acidification of the blood then the tissues due to lifestyle and dietary choices. A cancerous tissue begins with our choices of what we eat, what we drink, what we think and how we live. Cancer is a liquid and this liquid is a toxic waste product of metabolism or energy consumption.

In 1966, Dr. Otto Warburg, who won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1931 for his discovery of the cause of cancer delivered a lecture at an annual meeting of Nobelists at Lindau, Germany. In his speech he described the primal cause of cancer as follows:

"The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes. From the standpoint of the physics and chemistry of life this difference between nomal and cancer cells is so great that one can scarely picture a greater difference. Oxygen gas, the donor of energy in plants and animals is dethroned in the cancer cells and replaced by an energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms. namely, a fermentation of glucose."

The following is a summary of understanding cancerous tissues:

Cancer is not a cell but a poisonous acidic liquid.

A cancer cell, is a cell that has been spoiled or poisoned by metabolic or gastrointestinal acids.

A tumor is the body's protective mechanism to encapsulate spoiled or poisoned cells from excess acid that has not been properly eliminated through urination, perspiration, defecation or respiration.

The tumor is the body's solution to protect healthy cells and tissues.
Cancer is a systemic acidic condition that settles at the weakest parts of the body -not a localized problem that metastases.

Metastases is localized acids spoiling other cells much like a rotten apple spoiling a bushel of healthy apples.

There is no such thing as a cancer cell. A cancer cell was once a healthy cell that has been spoiled from acid.

The tumor is not the problem but the solution to protect healthy cells and tissues from being spoiled from other rotting cells and tissues.

The only solution to the acidic liquids that poison body cells causing the affect that medical savants call cancer is to alkalize and energize the body.

In conclusion, the human body is alkaline by design and acidic by function! If we desire a healthy body we must maintain that alkaline design.

2) Does diet and lifestyle have anything to do with cancer?

Absolutely! Cancer is not something we get it is something we do as a consequence of daily choice of what we eat, what we drink, what we think and how we live. We either have an alkaline lifestyle and diet and enjoy a fit and healthy body or we have an acidic lifestyle and diet and experience the aches, pains and suffering from metabolic acids.

The former US Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop, had this to say about diet:


3) If cancer is preventable how do we prevent it?

I have said many times that the cure for cancerous tissue will not be found in its treatment but in its prevention. That prevention can only be obtained by making healthier lifestyle and dietary choices. A cancerous condition is the consequence of choice. For example, if you want to reduce your risk for cancereous tissue of the lung by 100%, then stop smoking and stop associating or working around people that do smoke. Secondary smoke is just as acidic and damaging to the lung tissue. If don't want a cancerous liver then stop drinking alcohol and carbonated drinks. If you don't want a cancerous pancreas then stop eating the acid sugar. If you don't want a cancerous bowel then stop eating protein. It is that simple. The following are a few research studies from around the world that substantiate my own findings:

Study: Human study at Harbin Medical College in China
Results: CABBAGE was the most important single food in reducing the risk of stomach cancer

Study: Italian study on Smokers
Results: Smokers who consumed GREEN LEAFY and other VEGETABLES had a THREE FOLD REDUCTION in their risk of lung cancer with smokers who rarely ate vegetables.

Study: Hebel Cancer Institute in China
Results: GARLIC, ONION AND TOMATO had the ability to INHIBIT the CELL MUTATION caused by common chemotherapeutic drugs... this is based on conclusive evidence that chemotherapy drugs cause cell mutations and lead to other types of cancers later in life.

Study: Mayo Clinic
Results: Cancer patients receiving radiation therapy can benefit dramatically from optimal VEGETABLE based diets.

Study: University of Athens School of Medicine in Greece
Results: Women who consumed the LOWEST level of vegetables had 10 TIMES the rate of BREAST CANCER compared to women consuming the HIGHEST level of vegetables.

Study: Human study in Australia
Results: Consumption of CABBAGE, CARROTS AND GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES substantial protection against COLON CANCER.

Study: Aichi Cancer Institute of Japan
Results: Eating VEGETABLES reduced the risk of CERVICAL and BREAST CANCER in women.

Study: Cancer Control Agency of British Columbia
Results: Eating VEGETABLES dramatically reduced incidence of BREAST CANCER.

4) If I have cancer, such as colon, lung, or prostate cancer can I reverse it naturally?

The answer to this question is absolutely! Once you understand the cause of ALL cancerous tissues as latent tissue acidosis you can then begin the process of reversing, regenerating and preventing the consequences of acidic choices by making healthier alkaline choices. The protocol for a healthier and energetic body, free from all sickness and dis-ease, is found in Chapter Eleven of our latest book, "The pH Miracle for Weight Loss."

In closing, I would like to share with you my vision of medicine in the 21st century.

My vision of the relative purpose of medicine is to include prevention of illness and promotion of health and fitness rather than focusing all our attention on the diagnosis and treatment of disease. I believe the ultimate purpose of medicine is to help people discover something fundamental within themselves. And that is the awareness that the true source of well-being, joy, and contentment that we all seek lies within one's mind and heart - the emotions and the spirit - not in the physical world. This is important, so we can all begin to be freed from the process of grasping for happiness in this physical world. To support this approach, I believe we must begin to embrace a more spiritual vision of ourselves and of humanity as a whole. While providing great love, care and attention to the physical body, medicine can then and only then can we help people discover the nonphysical, spiritual dimensions of themselves. When this happens, we can all live and work with less f
ear, stress, grasping to preserve the physical body at all costs - we can truly be free.

21 Sept.2006 - I must address this tragedy of the wrongful association of a bacteria called E-coli from spinach causing sickness or even death. I have said for years that germs cannot cause sickness, disease or death but are the products of cellular transformation. There is only one cause of sickness, disease and death and that is the over-acidification of the blood and then tissues due to an inverted way of living, eathing and thinking. Our bodies are alkaline by design. If you maintain that alkaline design you can never get sick. All functions of the human body are acidic. If we do no eliminate the acids from digestion or metabolism through urination, perspiration, defication or respiration they will build up in our tissues making us sick and tired and eventual death. The kidneys cannot and do not fail because of eating spinach that may have been contaminated with E-coli. Germs do not cause disease as most medical savants would have us believe! This is absurd! Kidneys fail when they become over acid from lifestyle and dietary choices. There is no other cause. So go ahead and enjoy your greens including spinach. They will help maintain your alkaline design and prevent sickness and disease, including kidney disease.


23 Sept. 2006 - The individuals that have been suggested of possibly dying from E-coli found in the kidney is like blaming the smoke from a fired gun as the cause of death. Logically we know that smoke from a fired gun cannot kill. In fact it is not even the bullet that can kill. It is the person that is pulling the trigger that causes the gun to be fired, that causes the release of the bullet and then the residue of smoke. E-coli is the smoke. The bulllet is the acid. And the trigger is the individuals lifestyle and dietary choices. Not for a moment do I believe that anyone unless staving to death would eat spoiled fermenting smelly and awfull tasting spinach. I trully believe that people are not that stupid and I am not about to believe these riduculous claims that spinach was the possible cause of death as suggested by western germ theory scientists.

To justify their claims, these medical savants are now saying that E-coli is the possible villain in this fairy tale by suggesting that it is coming from migrant workers who are urinating and defecating in the fields around the spinach. I can hardly contain myself from laughing out loud when organic farmers are using chicken excrement to fertilize the fields of spinach and other vegetables and fruits. Here at Rancho del Sol we use chicken excrement in and around our organic grapefruit and avocado trees for its oxygen and nitrogen components. This is what all organic farmers use. So what would be worse -- human excrement or chicken excrement to fertilize with?

As for Legionnaire's disease this also is not caused by bacteria but from the over indulgence of acidic foods and drinks. There were many people who were sick that had been diagnosed with Legionnaire's where no bacteria could be found. The reason -- acid makes us sick not bacteria. This is also the case with individuals diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. They are sick but there is no virus present! So what is the cause? It can only be from an over acidic environment. So we need to look at the acid from our lifestyle and dietary choices. The acid from the beverages we drink such as tea, coffee and alcohol. The toxins from meats that release nitric, uric, sulphuric and phosphoric acids. Or the toxins from sugar like acetlyaldehyde or lactic acids. These are the true culprits or poisons that make us sick, tired and fat that leads to our eventual death.
