Low Cholesterol May Raise The Risk For Stomach Cancer

Low Cholesterol May Raise The Risk of a Cancerous


Because cholesterol is a major buffer of dietary
and metabolic acids that can cause the breakdown
of cells and tissues leading to a cancerous state.

It is the stomach that produces the body’s number
one acid buffer – sodium bicarbonate.

When the body needs more sodium bicarbonate to buffer
dietary and metabolic acid there is an equal amount
of hydrochloric acid that is secreted into the stomach.
The newly created sodium bicarbonate by the stomach
is either used to buffer the acids of food in the stomach
or taken up into the blood stream to buffer metabolic acids
when cholesterol is not present.

Bottom line, it is the body’s increased need for
cholesterol to buffer acids in the extracellular
fluids. When cholesterol is not present to buffer
dietary or metabolic acids then the stomach kicks
in and starts producing sodium bicarbonate.
This process leaves toxic hydrochloric
acid in the gastric pits of the stomach that can
destroy stomach cells leading to ulcerations and a
cancerous stomach.

Japanese researchers are suggesting that people with
very low cholesterol levels seem to be at
increased risk of developing stomach cancer. This
is because of the body’s increased need for sodium
bicarbonate and the residues of hydrochloric acid
that is left to ferment the stomach leading to
a cancerous stomach.

Some studies have linked low cholesterol levels to
higher death rates from cancer in general, Dr. Kouichi
Asano, of Kyushu University, Fukuoka, and colleagues
explain in the International Journal of Cancer.
“With respect to gastric cancer, a limited number
of studies suggest this inverse association, while
others do not.”

The researcher looked into this in a study involving
some 2,600 residents of Hisayama, Japan, who were
followed for 14 years.

Gastric cancers developed in 97 subjects. After
accounting for age and gender, stomach cancer rates
rose significantly with descending cholesterol level.
For example, among subjects with the highest cholesterol
levels, the gastric cancer rate was the equivalent
of 2.1 cases per 1000 persons per year; among those
with the lowest cholesterol, the rate was 3.9 per
1000 person-years.

“Our data suggest that patients with low serum
cholesterol should consider regular gastro-intestinal
examination for the prevention of gastric cancer,”
the investigators conclude.

To prevent a cancerous condition, including stomach
cancer one needs to include liberal amounts of
sodium chloride (salt) and medium and long chain

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, a research
scientist from the pH Miracle Living Center, states,
“the stomach is an organ of contribution not an
organ of digestion. Its main contribution to the
health and well-being of the body is to produce
alkaline salts of sodium and potassium bicarbonate.
The purpose of the stomach in producing these
alkaline salts is to buffer the acids of diet and
metabolism for maintaining the alkaline design of
the body fluids and thus protecting the alkaline
integrity of the cells.”

“To prevent and/or reverse a cancerous condition one
must incorporate liberal amounts of sodium and
potassium bicarbonate and good healthy fats.”

salts and good oils in the diet in the preventing

  1. Curious about why the stomach secretes both sodium bicarbonate and hydrochloric acid. Why not just sodium bicarbonate?


  2. stomach secrtes hydrochloric acid becuse it proect the inner linning of stomach moreever it also helps for the damage of bacteria..
