The following is an overview of questions
and answers found in The pH Miracle for
Question One: 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 tissues then in the blood
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 acidic waste product
of metabolism or energy consumption, diet
and especially our thoughts or emotions.
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 anaerobes, whereas all cancer cells
are partial anaerobes. From the standpoint
of the physics and chemistry of life this
difference between normal and cancer cells
is so great that one can scarcely picture a
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
1) Cancer is not a cell but a poisonous
acidic liquid from diet, metabolism and
2) A cancer cell, is a cell that has been
spoiled or poisoned by metabolic or
3) 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.
4) The tumor is the body’s solution to
protect surrounding healthy cells and
5) The tumor is the body protecting
itself from systemic acidosis.
6) Cancer is a systemic acidic condition
that settles at the weakest parts of
the body – not a localized problem
7) Metastases is localized acids spoiling
other cells much like a rotten apple
spoiling a bushel of healthy apples.
8) There is no such thing as a cancer cell.
A cancer cell was once a healthy cell
that has been spoiled by dietary and
9) The tumor is not the problem but the
solution to protect healthy cells and
tissues from being spoiled from other
rotting cells and tissues.
10) All tumors are encapsulated cells that
are spoiling like a banana.
11) All tumors are sitting in a mote of
acidic fluids. This is what forms the
cyst that is generally attached to the
13) Cancer is NOT genetic! Lifestyle
and dietary choice is what causes
14) The only solution to the acidic liquids
that poison body cells causing the
effects that medical savants call cancer
is to alkalize and energize the body.
15) The best way to alkalize the body is
to infuse natural alkalizing fluids into
the body to force the hyper-alkalization
of the tissues.
16) The cure for cancer is in alkalizing the
fluids of the body not treating the tissues.
In conclusion, the human body is alkaline
by design and acidic by function! If we
desire a fit and healthy body we must
maintain that alkaline design.
Question Two: 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,
how 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
and dietary acids.
The former US Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop,
had this to say about diet:
“YOUR CHOICE OF DIET CAN INFLUENCE YOUR LONG
TERM HEALTH PROSPECTS MORE THAN ANY OTHER
ACTION YOU MIGHT TAKE.”
Question Three: If cancer is preventable how do we prevent it?
I have said many times that the cure for
cancerous tissue will be found in its
prevention not in its treatment. 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 cancerous tissue
of the lung by 100%, then stop smoking
and stop associating or working around
people who do smoke.
Secondary smoke is just as acidic and
damaging to the lung tissue as primary
If you 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 animal 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
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.
Question Four: If I have cancer, such as colon,
lung, or prostate cancer can I reverse it
Question Four: Can Cancer be Prevented and Can it be Treated and Reversed?
The answer to this question is absolutely YES!!!!!!!
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”
or should I say “The pH Miracle for Cancer.”
For those who do not have the pH Miracle
for Weight Loss book or cannot afford to
purchase the book then may I suggest following
the outline below of my C.O.W.S. Plan for
hyper-alkalizing the fluids of the body and
building the blood.
My research over the last 30 years has shown that
the “pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet” that includes
powerful antioxidants from the best fruits,
vegetables, grasses, oils and alkaline water has
continued to show incredible results in preventing
and reversing ALL symptomologies of sickness and
dis-ease, including all cancers are caused by an
over-acidic lifestyle and diet.
To simply explain the “pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet, I use an acronym I created called, C.O.W.S.
In order to be healthy you need to eat like
To begin, the “C” in the C.O.W.S. acronym stands
for Chlorophyll, Clay and Cleansing. You take
chlorophyll to build the blood, clay to buffer
metabolic and dietary acids and you cleanse the
bowels with mineral salts of sodium bicarbonate
and magnesium oxide.
The “O” stands for oil and oxygen. The oil you
ingest should be unsaturated from hydrogen ions,
such as hemp, flax, pomegranate, olive and avocado
oil which are some of my favorites. You can increase
oxygen by exercising, deep breathing, taking
antioxidant supplements (Co-Q-10, Glutathione)
and using bicarbonate of salts. A person who is 70
kilos or 154 pounds should ingest at least 100 grams
daily of unsaturated oil. You would ingest more
unsaturated oil if you weigh more and less if
you weigh less.”
The “W” stands for water that is saturated with
hydroxyl ions or electrons. A person who is 70 kilos
or 154 pounds should drink at least 4 liters of
9.5 pH/-150 mV alkaline water daily. You can also add
2 ounces of pure organic chlorophyll to each liter of
water and/or organic low heat dehydrated antioxidant
fruits, vegetables and grass powder.
And finally, the “S” stands for salt and sunshine.
One of the most important things that one can do
for incredible health and energy is put alkalizing
mineral salts back into the diet. Ingesting whole
unprocessed colloidal mineral salts are critical for
a healthy bowel, blood, heart, brain and body. The
body cannot live without mineral salts. Salt is
necessary in order to transport energy to the cells.
The body uses salt to maintain its alkaline
design by buffering metabolic and dietary acids.
I suggest eating at least 10 to 12 grams of natural
mineral colloidal sea salt a day for a body weight of
70 kilos or 154 pounds. To energize the body and
to strengthen bones, muscles and the nervous system
I recommend at least 30 minutes of direct sunshine
The pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet” leading to
health, energy and vitality is as simple
as eating like C.O.W.S.
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 help people
discover the nonphysical, spiritual
dimensions of themselves.
When this happens, we can all live and
work with less fear, stress, grasping to
preserve the physical body at all costs –
we can truly be free.
Thank you for allowing me to share my vision
and my hope for everyone around the world.
In love, light and laughter,
Dr. Robert O. Young

I liked about 99% of what you have to say! >But I am a Christian and believe that we need to give ourselves over the our Lord, Jesus Christ. After that, taking every step to ensure good helth on this earth is a fantastic way to go!!!>Big question- canyou address vaccines? I am not in favor of vaccinating my children currently, and was wondering if you agree?>http://iammommy.typepad.com
Hello,>>I totally agree with the idea that we create our cancer with our unhealthy eating/living habits. >>But, I am still wondering why young children develop cancer so early, whereas others live long lives of unhealthy behaviors before ever experiencing illness? Isn’t it related to genetics?
I was looking for a place to simply contact you personally, but this seems to be the only place that I’ve found. I was looking for a quality doctorate of naturopathy educational institution. At http://www.quackwatch.org/04ConsumerEducation/Nonrecorg/clayton.html, I found one school of interest being demoted by Stephen Barrett, M.D.. He made this comment about you, and I’d like to ask you about it. “His (YOUR)Web site claims that he “has been widely recognized as one of the top research scientists in the world,” and his book states that he “has gained national recognition for his research into diabetes, cancer, leukemia, and AIDS.” Yet he, too, has had nothing published in a recognized scientific journal.”>>With respect, I’d like to know if his attack is true. If not, he needs to be reported to the medical board for ethics violations in slandering your name, not to include legal aspects. My blog was only done for a required nursing school project (1st time I’ve blogged). >>Thank you, >>Charles
Dear Charles:>>Thank you for your comments.>I have never met Mr. Stephen Barrett who is no longer a medical doctor having lost his license to practice.>>His portrayal of me is unfair, inaccurate and dishonest. I am sure he believes he is doing a good work to expose scientific fraud. >>The problem with Mr. Barrett is his facts are generally third party.>>His science he purports as fact is just theory. It is old medical theory which will soon die with Mr. Garrett.>>I remember after a lecture I was approached by a medical doctor who told me a story about his graduation from medical school. He said at the commencement speech the head of the school of medicine told all those in attendance that he had some bad news and some really bad news. The bad news was that everything they had learned at medical school 50% was now inaccurate. The really bad news is they were not sure of which 50%.
PS My work speaks for itself. What has Mr Barrett done for the advancement of health care?
Dr Young, what is your opinion about using cesium to assist in becoming alkaline to battle cancer?
Dear Dr. Young,>>What is your opinion about adding cesium to bottled water in order to alkalize the body? I drink alkaline, ionized water and eat a healthy green diet. I’m trying to help someone understand the life altering benefits of this, but this person (a doctor of Chiropractic) insists that cesium works just fine. He measure the alkalinity of his body through the testing of his urine. Is that an accurate was to test?
