How Long Do YOU Want to LIVE?

Life and Death is all about managing and maintaining the delicate alkaline pH environment of the blood plasma, the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium and the intracellular fluids of the body cells, at 7.365.
[The first micrograph shows a lactic acid crystal in the live blood..  The second mircrograph shows a citric acid crystal in the live blood]
You can manage and support all of the body fluids with what you eat, what you drink, what you breathe, what you think and what you believe.  Yes, even your thoughts and beliefs produce metabolic acidic waste products that can make you sick and tired.  Your thoughts and beliefs do become biology and do affect the pH of all body fluids.
Today, medical science teaches that the body regulates the pH of the body fluids automatically and factors such as what you eat, drink, breathe, think or believe have no bearing or influence on the biochemistry of the body fluids.  In other words, your lifestyle has NO influence on the chemistry, including the pH of the blood, interstitial fluids or the fluids inside the cells or intracellular fluids!
This thinking should and does not make common sense since we do know scientifically that uric acid from eating animal protein causes gout, lactic acid from metabolism and from dairy products causes inflammation and cancer, acetaldehyde and alcohol causes breast cancer, diabetes, and pancreatic and liver diseases, including cancer and the acidic pesticide DDT and glyphosate (the main chemical in the pesticide Round-up) causes birth defects, dementia, polio, measles, MS, Zika and YES cancer.
The good news is a medical research group in America just announced last year that they had discovered a new organ in the human body called the Interstitium. Researchers are claiming that this organ is not only the largest organ of the human body but it contains compartments that hold metabolic, dietary, respiratory and environment acidic waste.  This acidic waste in the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium is held in these compartments until they can be eliminated via urination, defecation, perspiration, menstruation and respiration.  This new anatomical, functional and physiological discovery changes the false belief by the current medical establishment.
With new medical technology we can now test the chemistry, including the pH of ALL the body fluids which proves that the Interstitium, I call the third kidney, is holding predominately the majority of all acidic waste in these holding compartments.  This is done by the body in order to maintain  and protect the delicate pH balance of the blood plasma  and keep you alive.
Just testing the chemistry or parameters of the blood plasma can and many times will give medical doctors a false positive or false negative.  Why?  Because all the the normal or negative factors happening in the body can only be revealed by testing the fluids of the Interstitium where all the acidic toxins are being stored, until eliminated through the channels of elimination.
When medical doctors make false statements that what you eat, drink, breathe or think does not effect the chemistry of the body fluids, they do not realize that the pH of the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium are being compromised every day by ALL of these factors.  Testing the chemistry of the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium and comparing this information to the chemistry of the blood plasma is critical in correctly determining a real or accurate medical diagnosis!  I have determined from my own research over the years that the testing of the Interstitial fluids of the Interstitium is the gold standard in medical diagnostics and the holy grail to prevention, diagnostic, and effective treatments for ALL sickness and disease!
Currently, we are the only research and diagnostic group, in the World, testing ALL of the body fluids for chemistry, including pH!

Medical Testing and Diagnostics Needs to Change!  

It is so critical that YOU share this new medical science with everyone you love and care about.  Testing the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium will save lives and prevent serious health challenges down the road.  It will provide YOU the certainty that your heath practitioner needs to advise YOU correctly on your current health and fitness condition.  Measuring and understanding the chemistry of the Interstitium will reveal whether or not your current health and fitness plan is effective and healthful.  This would include your nutritional protocol, exercise, or even the legend drugs you maybe taking!  No more guessing or diagnosing a health condition based upon symptoms or beliefs or even your doctors beliefs.

Quantifying the interstitial fluid chemistry is the KEY to understanding YOUR REAL current health and fitness condition!

The picture below is a diagram of the breakdown of body fluids (Figure 1) and a cross-section of the largest organ of the human body – The Interstitium (Figure 2). Keep in mind if you ask your doctor about the Interstitium his/her eyes will glaze over because most medical doctors know absolutely nothing about this organ! In fact, medical science just recognized this organ in 2018 – a organ I have been studying for over 30 years!

I Want To Know More!

To learn more about the Interstitium and the chemistry of the blood, interstitial fluids and the Intracellular fluids read my peer-reviewed research, “Alkalizing Nutritional Therapy in the Prevention and Treatment of Any Cancerous Condition.”
On February 9th, 2019, ACTA Scientific Cancer Biology, a peer-reviewed journal, will be publishing my article on the cause, treatment and reversal of Cystic Fibrosis and Pulmonary Adenocarcinoma Lung Cancer! The title of my article is: “Cystic Fibrosis and Pulmonary Adenocarcinoma Lung Cancer both Metabolic and Dietary Acidic Conditions.”

The following is the abstract for this article:

Cystic fibrosis (CF) [1,2] and Pulmonary Adenocarcinoma (PAC) [3] have similar symptomologies and are chronic, progressive, and frequently fatal acidic conditions of the respiratory system (lungs), lymphatic system (lymph nodes), intestines, pancreas, urinary tract system, reproductive organs and the skin as the alkaloid glands (the salivary glands, stomach, and small and large intestines) produce and secrete alkaline compounds, such as sodium bicarbonate to buffer and preserve the alkaline design of the body and the specific organs and glands affected. These metabolic and dietary acidic conditions resulting in the build-up of mucous [3] can affect any organ or organ system but primarily affects the respiratory, lymphatic system, digestive, and reproductive tracts in children and young adults with CF and the lungs and surrounding lymph nodes in PAC. I have suggested from my own clinical research that both of these conditions are the result of latent tissue acidosis (LTA) in the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium or the fluids that surround every cell, created from metabolism, diet, thoughts and environment and may be successfully treated and reversed with an alkaline lifestyle and diet (ALD) [4].

The Answer to My Question to YOU!

Now, in answer to my question to YOU, “How long do YOU want to LIVE,” I have included a picture of a 400 year old Bonsai Tree to give you a glimpse of the possibilities for increasing your longevity by actively managing and measuring the chemistry of YOUR body fluids, especially the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium.
Dr. Alexis Carrel received the Nobel prize in medicine many years after his death for discovering the longevity of the human cell. What did he find? That he could keep a body cell alive forever if he would simply change-out the acidic fluids that surround the cell every 24 to 48 hours. His experiment was with a chicken heart that he kept alive for over 20 years by changing-out the interstitial fluids each day. The chicken heart only died after he stopped managing the interstitial fluids of the heart.
You must protect, manage and maintain the alkaline design of the body fluids if YOU want to prevent sickness or disease and extend the quality and quantity of your life!
You must be protected just like Dr. Alex Carrel’s chicken heart or the 400 year old Bonsai tree above that was protected by a concrete walled nursery from the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan.
I am suggesting in my work, research and findings that the KEY to a healthy and long life, can be found in the interstitial fluids of the Interstiitum – the environment that bathes every cell of the human body determines how long a cell will live to even the DNA expression and ultimately determines how long YOU will live!  Genes DO NOT Determine YOUR Destiny!  The interstitial fluids of the Interstitium determines YOUR Destiny!
[The blue and dark blue areas represent the interstitial fluids of the Intersititium that determine the expression of the DNA]
Life is a choice just as death is a choice. You choose it every day with what you eat, what you drink, what you breathe, what you think and what you believe. So Choose Wisely!
Finally, remember that ALL cells of the human body are only as healthy as their environment or the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium, in which they reside and live!

The Truth About Alkalizing Your Body Fluids


Reading the following article may disrupt just about everything you thought you understood about the anatomy, physiology and the functionality of the human body!


The following article was published by Dr. Robert O. Young, April 12th, 2012, covering his work, research and discovery of the interstitial fluid of the colloidal connective tissue, the largest organ of the body and the alkaline buffering system, a new organ system. Dr. Young also shares his discovery of the true purpose ot the stomach and small intestines and his foundational theory that the human body is alkaline by design although acidic by function.

Please Read and Share this very important break-through research that pre-dates the so-called discovery in 2018 of the interstitial fluids of the interstitium as a NEW ORGAN and NEW ORGAN SYSTEM.

The interstitial fluid of the Interstitium is what I have been referring to as the interstitial fluid of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade for over 25 years.

Many of my critics called me a quack when I suggested over 25 years ago that the largest organ of the human body was NOT the skin but a new organ, undetected by current medical savants, called the interstitial fluid of the colloidal connective tissues.

This organ holds all the impurities of the blood in order to maintain its delicate pH balance at 7.365. The colloidal connective tissue holds these impurities until they can be removed by the lymphatic system via perspiration, urination or defecation.

You will also learn about another new organ system I refer to as the Alkaline Buffering System and the real functionality of the stomach!


Reading the following article may disrupt everything you learned in elementary, secondary, graduate and post graduate school. If you are a medical doctor or a naturopathic doctor you will have to unlearn just about everything you were taught at medical school!

The following is a rebuttal to Dr. Ben Kim, a conventionally trained doctor and Dr. Robert O. Young, a biochemist, nutritionist and a naturopathic practitioner.

Dr. Ben Kim states: Is it true that the foods and beverages you consume cause your blood to become more alkaline or acidic? Contrary to popular hype, the answer is: not to any significant degree.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The pH of blood and interstitial fluids are constantly being challenged with environmental, dietary, respiratory, and metabolic acids. The body deals with blood acids by eliminating these acids through the four channels of elimination (urination, perspiration, defecation and respiration) and the buffering of acids through the alkaline buffering system in order to maintain the delicate pH balance of the blood plasma and interstitial fluids at 7.365.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The pH of your blood is tightly regulated by a complex system of buffers that are continuously at work to maintain a range of 7.35 to 7.45, which is slightly more alkaline than pure water.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The pH of your extracellular fluids, which includes the blood plasma and the interstitial fluids are kept at a very narrow range at 7.365 to 7.385. Any pH measurement of blood plasma in excess of 7.385 indicates a condition of compensated acidosis and any pH measurement of blood plasma or interstitial fluids below 7.365 indicates a condition of decompensated acidosis.

Screen Shot 2018-11-25 at 10.08.28 AM

When the pH of the blood plasma increases above the 7.385 this is the result of the blood pushing environmental, dietary, respiratory and metabolic acids out into the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade as the blood is pulling alkaline mineral salts such as calcium ions from the bones or magnesium ions from the muscles to offset the increase of acids in the blood. It is always a sure sign that as the blood plasma is becoming more alkaline the interstitial fluids of  the colloidal connective tissues of the schade are becoming more acidic and this is the cause of ALL inflammatory and degenerative diseases.

When the body tissues, organs, cells, or the alkaline reserves (sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium) become deficient in alkaline minerals the blood plasma pH will drop below the ideal 7.365 causing decompensated acidosis leading to hemolysis at a pH below 7.365 or a coma and/or death at a pH below 7.2.

Dr. Kim Ben states: If the pH of your blood falls below 7.35, the result is a condition called acidosis, a state that leads to central nervous system depression. Severe acidosis – where blood pH falls below 7.00 – can lead to a coma and even death.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: If pH of the blood plasma drops below 7.365 the result is called decompensated acidosis.  If the pH of the blood plasma stays at the ideal 7.365 this is called compensated acidosis. And if the pH of the blood plasma increases above the 7.365 this is called “latent tissue acidosis” in the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade.

The blood plasma pH always goes alkaline when the blood pushes out environmental, dietary, respiratory or metabolic acids out into the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade. These acids are always deposited into what I call the ‘acid catchers’ which are the connective tissues of the schade. This leads to what I call ‘latent tissue acidosis’.

As acids build-up in the colloidal connective tissues of the schade and if NOT eliminated by the lymphatic system and the out through the channels of elimination, including the skin, lungs, bowels or urine this will result in ALL the connective tissue diseases and degenerative diseases, including ALL cancerous conditions.

Dr. Kim Ben states: If the pH of your blood rises above 7.45, the result is alkalosis. Severe alkalosis can also lead to death, but through a different mechanism; alkalosis causes all of the nerves in your body to become hypersensitive and over-excitable, often resulting in muscle spasms, nervousness, and convulsions; it’s usually the convulsions that cause death in severe cases.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: If the blood plasma pH increases over 7.385 you are in a state of ‘latent tissue acidosis’ of the interstitial fluids on the colloidal connective tissue of the shade and a high risk for cancer. This is what I call the “tee-ter-totter effect”. The body is pulling alkaline minerals into the blood to compensate for an equal amount of acids being pushed out into the interstitial fluids of the connective tissues of the schade to keep the blood plasma in an alkaline state. The result is tissue acidosis which then leads to hypersensitivity and over-excitable nerves, muscle spasms, nervousness and convulsions that can lead to coma or even death.  All of these symptoms are NOT a result of too much base or alkalinity but the result of too much acid from the blood being deposited into the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade. The cause of ‘latent tissue acidosis’ is caused by an acidic lifestyle and dietary choices.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The bottom line is that if you’re breathing and going about your daily activities, your body is doing an adequate job of keeping your blood pH somewhere between 7.35 to 7.45, and the foods that you are eating are not causing any wild deviations of your blood pH.

Dr. Robert O. Young: The bottom line is when you understand that having an acidic lifestyle and diet does affect the blood plasma and interstitial fluid pH in a negative way.

The blood responds to increased acids from lifestyle and diet by pushing them out into the interstitial fluids of the connective tissues or the colloidal connective tissues of the schade. The foods you eat, the liquids you drink, the air you breath, even your thoughts will effect the pH of blood and then the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues. The blood is constantly responding to the acidic wastes of lifestyle and diet choices!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Kim Ben stated: So what’s up with all the hype about the need to alkalize your body? And what’s to be made of the claim that being too acidic can cause osteoporosis, kidney stones, and a number of other undesirable health challenges?

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The hype about alkalizing your blood and then interstitial fluids of the connective tissues is important because the human body is alkaline by design and acidic by function. This is the foundation for understanding the true cause of ALL sickness and disease.

Dr. Kim Ben states: As usual, the answers to such questions about human health can be found in understanding basic principles of human physiology. So let’s take a look at the fundamentals of pH and how your body regulates the acid-alkaline balance of its fluids on a moment-to-moment basis.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The problems with current understanding of the basic principals of human physiology is the basic principals do NOT understand that the human body is alkaline by design and acidic by function. Current medical savants DO NOT understand that there is only one health, one sickness, one disease and one treatment. The one health is to maintain the alkaline design of the blood and interstitial fluids of the connective tissues with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. The one sickness and one disease is the over-acidification of the blood and then tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating and thinking. The one treatment is to restore the alkaline design of the body fluids with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. Remember the fish bowl metaphor? It goes like this – When the fish is sick what would you do? Treat the fish or change the water? Remember the fish is only as healthy as the water it swims in.

Dr. Kim Ben states: pH is a measure of how acidic or alkaline a liquid is. With respect to your health, the liquids involved are your body fluids, which can be categorized into two main groups:

1. Intracellular fluid, is the fluid found in all of your cells. Intracellular fluid is often called cytosol, and makes up about two-thirds of the total amount of fluid in your body.

2. Extracellular fluid, is the fluid found outside of your cells. Extracellular fluids are further classified as one of two types:

  1. Plasma, which is fluid that makes up your blood.
  2. Interstitial fluid, which occupies all of the spaces that surround your tissues. Interstitial fluid includes the fluids found in your eyes, lymphatic system, joints, nervous system, and between the protective membranes that surround your cardiovascular, respiratory, and abdominal cavities.
  3. Your blood (plasma) needs to maintain a pH of 7.35 to 7.45 for your cells to function properly. Why your cells require your blood to maintain a pH in this range to stay healthy is beyond the scope of this article, but the most important reason is that all of the proteins that work in your body have to maintain a specific geometric shape to function, and the three-dimensional shapes of the proteins in your body are affected by the tiniest changes in the pH of your body fluids.


Dr. Robert O. Young states: pH is a measurement of the concentrations of hydrogen and hydroxyl ions in a aqueous solution. Any aqueous solutions, including your blood plasma interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade (the largest organ of the human body) and the intracellular fluids that are saturated in hydrogen ions is less or more acidic and any aqueous solution that is saturated in hydroxyl ions is less or more base or alkaline.

Once again, the human body is alkaline in its design and acidic in its function. Your blood plasma and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissue of the schade needs to be maintained at a delicate pH of 7.365 for your cells to function properly.

I have found in my own blood research that when your pH is stable at 7.365 you find healthy blood which is even in color, even in size and even in shape. The red blood cell is the primary stem cell which becomes all other body cells. And the health of the blood and the interstitial fluid of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade is directly connected to the health of all body cells. It is blood that becomes, liver, heart, brain and skin cells. All red blood cells and then body cells are made up of microzymas.

Microzymas are the foundational, indestructible matter and intelligent matter that makes up all living cells, including the DNA. The tiniest changes in the pH of the body fluids can cause the microzymas in the red blood cells or body cells to change into bacteria, yeast and/or mold. This is how germs are created – from within NOT from without.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. A liquid that has a pH of 7 is considered to be neutral (pure water is generally considered to have a neutral pH). Fluids that have a pH below 7 – like lemon juice and coffee – are considered to be acidic. And fluids that have a pH above 7 – like human blood and milk of magnesia – are considered to be alkaline.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 with the pH of 7 being the midpoint (pure water may have a pH of 7 but I have found that the pH of pure water has a range of 6.2 to 7.2 – a 10 times exponential swing. I have also found that pure water has an oxidative reduction potential in a range of +50mV to +150mV) which will drain energy from the body. Lemon is an alkaline fruit not an acidic fruit. This is because of its low sugar and high alkaline mineral content of potassium bicarbonate. Lemons do not draw down on the alkaline buffering system and contributes in excess of 10 times in hydroxyl ions (OH-) in relationship to its hydrogen ion content.

Dr. Kim Ben states: It’s important to note that on the pH scale, each number represents a tenfold difference from adjacent numbers; in other words, a liquid that has a pH of 6 is ten times more acidic than a liquid that has a pH of 7, and a liquid with a pH of 5 is one hundred times more acidic than pure water.  Most carbonated soft drinks (pop) have a pH of about 3, making them about ten thousand times more acidic than pure water. Please remember this the next time you think about drinking a can of pop.

When you ingest foods and liquids, the end products of digestion and assimilation of nutrients often results in an acid or alkaline-forming effect – the end products are sometimes called acid ash or alkaline ash.

Dr. Robert O. Young states:  All food and drink which has a pH of less than 8.4 will cause the production of sodium bicarbonate by the stomach and the release of this sodium bicarbonate via the salivary glands, the pylorus glands, the pancreas, gall bladder and intestinal glands to alkalize whatever ingested. The main purpose of stomach is to prepare the food in a liquid state at a pH of 8.4 for biological transformation into stem cells which takes place in the crypts of the small intestines.


Dr. Kim Ben states: Also, as your cells produce energy on a continual basis, a number of different acids are formed and released into your body fluids. These acids – generated by your everyday metabolic activities – are unavoidable; as long as your body has to generate energy to survive, it will produce a continuous supply of acids.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: Metabolism produces acidic waste products of lactic, uric, citric and glucose if not eliminated will cause dis-ease and then disease. You are only as healthy as the alkaline fluids of the body which includes the extracellular and intracellular fluids.

Dr. Kim Ben states: So there are two main forces at work on a daily basis that can disrupt the pH of your body fluids – these forces are the acid or alkaline-forming effects of foods and liquids that you ingest, and the acids that you generate through regular metabolic activities. Fortunately, your body has three major mechanisms at work at all times to prevent these forces from shifting the pH of your blood outside of the 7.35 to 7.45 range.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: There are seven main sources at work on a daily basis that can disrupt the pH of your body fluids – these forces include acids from the external environment, acids from the foods and liquids ingested, acids from the air you breath, acids from metabolism, acids from cells breaking down or catabolic activity, acids from endogenous bacteria, yeast and mold, and acids from respiration. Your body has an elaborate alkalizing buffering system at work at all times to help prevent through chelation these forces from shifting the pH of the blood plasma pH as well as the interstitial fluid pH at a delicate pH of 7.365. It is important to note that when the alkaline buffering system (a new organ discovered by Dr. Robert O. Young) becomes depleted and acids are being deposited into the interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues and the fatty tissues this is when dis-ease and eventual disease manifests.

Dr. Kim Ben states:  These mechanisms are:

  1. Buffer Systems
    • Carbonic Acid-Bicarbonate Buffer System
    • Protein Buffer System
    • Phosphate Buffer System
  2. Exhalation of Carbon Dioxide
  3. Elimination of Hydrogen Ions via Kidneys
Dr. Robert O. Young states: There are ten (10) mechanisms that the body engages to buffer excess acids from lifestyle and dietary choices that are NOT properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination (bowels, kidney, skin and lungs):
1) The sodium bicarbonate system – the main organ of production is the stomach. The stomach is the major organ for sodium bicarbonate production for alkalizing food and maintaining the alkaline pH of the blood, tissues and organs.
2) The hemoglobin buffering system – the hemoglobin is a secondary alkalizing buffer for the blood when there is insufficient elements for the production of the primary buffer, sodium bicarbonate. This is the main cause of ALL blood diseases and why most all the client/patients I see have to a lesser or greater degree anemic and unhealthy blood.
3) The pHosphate buffering system which buffers acids creating phosphoric acid which is then excreted via the urine.
4) The ammonia buffering system reacts with hydrogen ions or acids to form ammonium ions which are excreted into the urine.
5) The plasma protein buffering system helps to chelate acids. The most plentiful type of buffer in the body including glutathione, methionine, cysteine and taurine which are found in the cells, lymph fluid and plasma.  Most plasma protein activity occurs intracellularly to bind or neutralize acids during cellular metabolism and/or disorganization or transformation of the human cell.
6) The electrolyte buffering system which includes the alkalizing mineral salts of sodium, magnesium, potassium and calcium. The chelation of any acid will form a less toxic solid or a stone in the body. All stones and cysts and tumors are the result of excess acids in the extra and intracellular fluids. The electrolyte or mineral buffers work in the blood, lymph, extracellular (blood plasma and interstitial fluids) and intracellular fluids to bind acids which are then removed via the urine. These four elements are recycled by the kidneys into the blood and lymph by binding them to CO2. Over 90 percent of the CO2 produced in the body through cellular fermentation in the production of energy is used to carry out this recycling process.
7) The low density lipo-protein buffering system also referred to as cholesterol works primarily as a binder of acids in the blood, lymph, and extracellular fluids which are then excreted via the urine. If elimination is compromised the fat bound acids are removed away from the organs that sustain life into the body cavities, hips, thighs, buttocks and abdominal area. This is the cause of over-weight and obesity.
8) The endocrine buffering system releases hormones to buffer acids. These hormones include the antidiuretic hormone which regulates the rate at which water is lost or retained by the body and aldosterone which regulates the level of sodium ions and potassium ions in the blood. These two alkaline secretions help the kidneys maintain the alkaline design of the body and reduce excess acidity thus creating pH balance in the body.
9) The release of free radicals or reduced hydrogen (OH- and SO-) by the lymphocytes to buffer excess acids in the blood, interstitial and intracellular fluids.
10) The retention of alkaline water to buffer excess acids in the colloidal connective tissues of the schade. This is the cause of edema or water retention.
Dr. Kim Ben states: It’s not in the scope of this post to discuss the mechanisms listed above in detail. For this article, I only want to point out that these systems are in place to prevent dietary, metabolic, and other factors from pushing the pH of your blood outside of the 7.35 to 7.45 range.
Dr. Robert O. Young states: The blood can be stressed from dietary and metabolic acids which are eliminated through the four channels of elimination or buffered by the ten alkalizing buffering mechanisms to maintain the delicate blood plasma, interstitial and intracellular pH at a healthy 7.365.

Dr. Kim Ben states: When people encourage you to “alkalize your blood,” most of them mean that you should eat plenty of foods that have an alkaline-forming effect on your system. The reason for making this suggestion is that the vast majority of highly processed foods – like white flour products and white sugar – have an acid-forming effect on your system, and if you spend years eating a poor diet that is mainly acid-forming, you will overwork some of the buffering systems mentioned above to a point where you could create undesirable changes in your health.

Dr. Robert O. Young states; Everything you eat, everything you drink, everything you breath, everything you think and everything you do affects the blood and interstitial fluids in an acidic way to a lesser or greater degree. That is why we age. We do not get old we mold from years of acidic lifestyle and dietary choices. The key to a healthy life or a life of sickness and disease and then eventual death is in the blood! Especially the blood plasma.

Dr. Kim Ben states: For example, your phosphate buffer system uses different phosphate ions in your body to neutralize strong acids and bases. About 85% of the phosphate ions that are used in your phosphate buffer system comes from calcium phosphate salts, which are structural components of your bones and teeth. If your body fluids are regularly exposed to large quantities of acid-forming foods and liquids, your body will draw upon its calcium phosphate reserves to supply your phosphate buffer system to neutralize the acid-forming effects of your diet. Over time, this may lead to structural weakness in your bones and teeth.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: Dr Kim Ben has described the cause of bone loss correctly. It is important to remember that the activation of the pHosphate buffering system does not happen when you are on an alkalizing lifestyle and diet and hyper-perfusing the blood and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues with alkalinity.  The alkaline lifestyle and diet is outlined in my book, The pH Miracle Revised and Updated.

Drawing on your calcium phosphate reserves at a high rate can also increase the amount of calcium that is eliminated via your genito-urinary system, which is why a predominantly acid-forming diet can increase your risk of developing calcium-rich kidney stones.

Dr. Ken Ben states: This is just one example of how your buffering systems can be overtaxed to a point where you experience negative health consequences. Since your buffering systems have to work all the time anyway to neutralize the acids that are formed from everyday metabolic activities, it’s in your best interest to follow a diet that doesn’t create unnecessary work for your buffering systems.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The protocol that will NOT unnecessarily activate the alkaline buffering systems of the body is outlined in the pH Miracle Revised and Updated by Dr. Robert O. Young.

Dr. Kim Ben states: Generally speaking, most vegetables and fruit have an alkaline-forming effect on your body fluids.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: Generally, all green fruit and vegetables are the ONLY alkalizing foods for the blood and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues and are critical in building healthy blood and then healthy body cells.

Dr. Kim Ben states: Most grains, animal foods, and highly processed foods have an acid-forming effect on your body fluids.

Dr. Robert O. Young states; All grains, animal foods, dairy products, fermented foods, algae, probiotics, enzymes, high sugar fruit, high sugar vegetables, vinegar, corn, nuts, mushrooms, alcohol, carbonate drinks, sport drinks and tobacco products are acidic to the blood and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective tissues of the schade (the largest organ of the body) and will activate the alkaline buffering systems.

Dr. Kim Ben states: Your health is best served by a good mix of nutrient-dense, alkaline and acid-forming foods; ideally, you want to eat more alkaline-forming foods than acid-forming foods to have the net acid and alkaline-forming effects of your diet match the slightly alkaline pH of your blood.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The only way to achieve extraordinary health and fitness is with the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet as outlined in The pH Miracle Revised and Updated book.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The following lists indicate which common foods have an alkaline-forming effect on your body fluids, and which ones result in acid ash formation when they are digested and assimilated into your system.

Please note that these lists of acid and alkaline-forming foods are not comprehensive, nor are they meant to be.

If you’re eating mainly grains, flour products, animal foods, and washing these foods down with coffee, soda, and milk, you will almost certainly improve your health by replacing some of your food and beverage choices with fresh vegetables and fruits.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The four alkalizing food groups are chlorophyll from green fruit and green vegetables, mono and polyunsaturated oils, alkalizing water and finally alkalizing mineral salts. I call this the COWS Plan as outlined in The pH Miracle Revised and Updated book.

Dr. Kim Ben states: The primary purpose of this article is to offer information that explains why I believe that you don’t need to take one or more nutritional supplements or “alkalized water” for the sole purpose of alkalizing your body. Your body is already designed to keep the pH of your body fluids in a tight, slightly alkaline range.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: Your body is alkaline by design but acidic by function and that is why you would be wise to follow an alkaline lifestyle and diet to prevent ALL sickness and disease and remain strong, healthy and fit. Drinking alkaline water is essential to maintaining the healthy alkaline state of ALL your body fluids!!!!!!

Dr. Kim Ben states: The ideal scenario is to make fresh vegetables and fruits the centerpieces of your diet, and to eat small amounts of any other nutrient-dense foods that your appetite calls for and that experience shows your body can tolerate.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: The ideal scenario is to make fresh organic electron-rich green alkalizing fruit and vegetables the centerpiece of your diet with liberal amounts of alkalizing polyunsaturated oils, alkalizing water at a pH of 9.5 and finally alkalizing mineral salts of sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium.

Dr. Kim Ben states: I hope these thoughts bring some clarity to this often misunderstood health topic.

Dr. Robert O. Young states: I hope these scientific truths brings some clarity to Dr. Kim Ben and others that are confused about the biochemistry, bioenergetics and the importance of alkalizing the blood and interstitial fluids of the colloidal connective  tissues of the schade (the largest organ of the human body) with an alkaline lifestyle and diet as outlined in my book, The pH Miracle, revised and updated.

How To Determine the pH of the Interstitial Fluids

Testing the urine pH is a product of the interstitial fluid of the colloidal connective tissues and NOT a product of the blood!
Therefore, testing the urine pH is how you test the pH of the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium.
This should be done every morning with pHydrion strips and then pH adjusted with the alkaline salts called pHour salts which includes sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium – four basic mineral salts for alkalizing the blood, interstitial fluids and intracellular fluids.

Does Cholesterol (LDL) Cause Heart Disease? What is the True Cause of Heart Disease?

Screen Shot 2018-12-29 at 7.12.33 AM

A physician’s word is often taken very seriously and with little skepticism. An opinion from one or two doctors, when made in a professional office or hospital, can persuade a worried patient to take drugs with complex side-effects, or even undergo traumatic treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy. Yet, when the same doctors, with years of experience and thousands of satisfied customers, give an opinion that questions a therapy established by mainstream medicine, the mainstream media calls them irresponsible, or quacks, or even criminals.

Which brings me to Dr. Dwight Lundell. He’s an experienced heart surgeon and retired Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital in Mesa, Arizona. Not so long ago, Dr. Lundell made the following statement of confession:

“We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labeled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol. The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice. It Is Not Working!

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible.”

Many doctors are highly admirable people, but they are still human beings. They all make mistakes, they all learn from them, but the really good ones are willing to admit to them.

Cholesterol does not cause heart disease and trying to reduce it with statin drugs is a waste of time, an international group of experts has claimed.

Not surprisingly, Lundell’s statement regarding the medical establishment’s approach to treating heart disease caused a ripple in the medical industry. It challenged the validity of statins – commonly known as cholesterol-lowering medications – such as Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor, and others.


The reason Lundell’s statement created such a buzz is because statins are big business. In the United States alone, about 25% of the population takes statin medications. They cost from as little as $53 per month to more than $600. Pfizer’s Lipitor went on sale in 1997 and its lifetime sales have surpassed $125 billion. AstraZeneca’s Crestor was the top-selling statin in 2013, generating $5.2 billion in revenue that year alone. The statin industry is estimated at around $30 billion in sales per year. Nevertheless, in the United States, more die each year of heart disease than ever before.

Lundell went on to say:

“The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated. The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.

I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with inflammation. While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with omega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.”

Listen to Dr. Tom Sladic, MD has he explains his understanding of the true cause of Heart Disease:

So What is the True Cause of Heart Disease?


A review of research involving nearly 70,000 people found there was no link between what has traditionally been considered “bad” LDL cholesterol and the premature deaths of over 60-year-olds from cardiovascular disease.

Published in the BMJ Open journal, the new study found that 92 percent of people with a high cholesterol level lived longer. (BMJ Open. Published online June 12 2016)

The authors have called for a re-evaluation of the guidelines for the prevention of cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis, a hardening and narrowing of the arteries, because “the benefits from statin treatment have been exaggerated”.

High cholesterol is commonly caused by an unhealthy acidic lifestyle and diet, and eating high levels of processed fat in particular, as well as smoking.



It is carried in the blood attached to proteins called lipoproteins and has been traditionally linked to cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease, stroke, peripheral arterial disease and aortic disease.

Co-author of the study Dr Malcolm Kendrick, an intermediate care GP, acknowledged the findings would cause controversy but defended them as “robust” and “thoroughly reviewed”. “What we found in our detailed systematic review was that older people with high LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels, the so-called “bad” cholesterol, lived longer and had less heart disease.”


Vascular and endovascular surgery expert Professor Sherif Sultan from the University of Ireland, who also worked on the study, said cholesterol is one of the “most vital” molecules in the body and prevents infection, cancer, muscle pain and other conditions in elderly people. He also stated, “lowering cholesterol with medications is a total waste of time and money”.

“Lowering cholesterol with medications for primary cardiovascular prevention in those aged over 60 is a total waste of time and resources, whereas altering your lifestyle is the single most important way to achieve a good quality of life,” he said.

Lead author Dr Uffe Ravnskov, a former associate professor of renal medicine at Lund University in Sweden, said there was “no reason” to lower high-LDL-cholesterol.

Heart Disease and Cholesterol

The graph below shows the famous 10 year Framingham correlation study between cholesterol and coronary heart disease, published in the Lancet in 1986, that big Pharma relies on and sold to the American public at large.


The problem though, as you see in the next graph, after 20 years the correlation shows that high cholesterol saves lives and low cholesterol is a risk factor for heart disease!

Everyone in modern society has heard about cholesterol, and how bad it is. Most do not understand why it exists, and simply see it as a menace that must be eliminated as quickly as possible. This misunderstanding is exactly what the pharmaceutical complex promotes, because it allows them to perpetually treat high cholesterol with drugs like Lipitor. These drugs are prescribed for the remainder of a patient’s lifetime, and when he/she eventually dies of a “thought attack”, family and friends will believe that the disaster was inevitable from “high cholesterol”. The death will not be attributed to other health factors or to the drugs themselves, but to the “high cholesterol”; even though there are no known deaths from cholesterol in human history. It is all very convenient for the drug companies, so long as we do not examine what is up the other sleeve.

I am reminded of restless leg syndrome, whereby the dis-ease was ‘discovered’ immediately after the pharmaceutical for it was patented, as a reason to sell us this useless pharmaceutical drug. Now, restless leg syndrome has been upgraded to a new “disease”. The cause of restless leg syndrome is also the cause of heart disease – retained metabolic and/or dietary acids in the connective and fatty tissues leading to inflammation, induration, ulceration, degeneration and finally death

“Before 1920, coronary heart disease was rare in America — so rare that when a young internist named Paul Dudley White introduced the German Electrocardiograph to his colleagues at Harvard University, they advised him to concentrate on a more profitable branch of medicine. The new machine revealed the presence of arterial blockages, thus permitting early diagnosis of coronary heart disease. But in those days, clogged arteries were a medical rarity, and White had to search for patients who could benefit from his new technology. During the next forty years, however, the incidence of coronary heart disease rose dramatically, so much so that by the mid 1950’s, heart disease was the leading cause of death among Americans.”

— Mary Enig, Ph.D.

The amount of cholesterol that you eat actually has very little relationship with the amount that you have in your blood. When you eat more cholesterol, your body produces less, and when you eat less cholesterol, your body produces more. Another way to say this is like this – when you have more metabolic or dietary acid in your blood and interstitial fluids the body produces more LDL cholesterol, and when you have less metabolic or dietary acid in your blood and interstitial fluids the body produces less cholesterol. Why? Because LDL cholesterol is a buffer or chelator of metabolic and/or dietary waste. Understand? A body usually produces between three and four times the cholesterol that one eats. The amount produced is generally related to how much is needed. Cholesterol is indeed needed and critical for optimal health. The purpose of so-called “bad cholesterol” is not to give us heart attacks, but to buffer acidic metabolic and dietary waste and to repair the damage to arteries or veins from our acidic lifestyles and diets.

Whenever a poor acidic diet and lifestyle leads to damaged arteries, a thick and sticky substance is required to patch them. That substance is known as LDL or “bad cholesterol”. When this damaging behavior is continued, multiple patches are created, leading to what we know as “clogged arteries”. The problem is not the cholesterol, which is doing its wonderful job of preventing our death from internal bleeding. The problem is the fact that the arteries or veins are damaged enough from acidic lifestyle and dietary choices to risk internal bleeding. Blocking a body’s healthy countermeasure only leads to worse problems. It is the pharmaceutical standard of symptom suppression that is like hiding the timer of a time bomb, and then expecting it not to eventually go off. Thus, that so-called “BAD” cholesterol is not “BAD” at all. In fact LDL cholesterol is saving your acidic body from internal bleeding and inevitable death. LDL cholesterol ONLY increases in the presence of excess metabolic, dietary, respiratory and/or environmental acids which increase as a result of what you eat, what you drink and what you think. High LDL cholesterol is a warning sign of your poor acidic lifestyle and dietary choices and the body is in preservation mode. It is trying to protect itself from YOU!

Cholesterol is created to save your life! The following picture is what solidified metabolic acid bound cholesterol looks like in the blood.


Modern medicine spends a lot of time fighting this pitch, instead of the actual causes of arterial damage. Thus, it is not surprising that cholesterol-lowering drugs cause more heart dis-ease and more heart attacks and strokes. A massive portion of the elderly population is taking cholesterol-lowering drugs, even though research shows that the higher their cholesterol levels (especially LDL) the longer that they will live and the less risk for a heart attack or stroke. The graph below illustrates this point! Low cholesterol in the elderly is actually a sign that something is seriously wrong, and a heart attack or stroke may be imminent. Modern medicine has only recently come to accept that at least some cholesterol (LDL and HDL) is good and protective! But when you mention (LDL) cholesterol as “GOOD” you better take cover from current medical savants who will attack you with their ignorance!


Cholesterol is still suppressed with drugs, despite what science would make prudent from the long-term Framingham Study. It also has been proven that these drugs cause high suicide rates. The drugs can lead to personality changes, in a manner similar to (but not as intense as) S.S.R.I. antidepressants.


The anti-cholesterol hysteria began in the 1950’s, when researcher Ancel Keys proposed the Lipid Hypothesis. It stated that cholesterol and saturated fats lead to heart disease. His beliefs were promoted heavily by the new hydrogenated oils industry, which spent obscene amounts of money to convince every one of Keys’ indisputable findings. This successful marketing campaign was on par with similar marketing for fluoride at about the same time. Studies which had oppositional findings to Keys’ were ignored or maligned. As a result of his flawed scientific methodology (subjective cherry picking results to match what he wanted to find) saturated fats like butter and eggs were used less, in exchange for the poisonous trans-fats that are in hydrogenated oils. Heart disease rates have been rising exponentially ever-since.

The French eat more fats than any other group in the world, yet they have lower rates of heart disease. The Japanese eat more fats than Americans, yet have lower rates of heart disease. There are plenty of countries with similar patterns. The French lifestyle especially counters Keys’ hypothesis, and it also provides evidence that resveratrol (found in red or purple grapes) improves heart health. Resveratrol has been shown to reverse atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Maybe, just maybe its being American that causes higher rates in heart attacks.   The bottom-line medical research is subjective NOT objective!

Just recently the Food and Drug Administration issued new safety warnings about a popular class of drugs used to control and lower cholesterol levels. The FDA says the drugs, known as statins, can cause several side effects, including cognitive problems such as memory lapses and confusion. But the agency is stressing that the side effects appear to be rare and not serious. I have suggested that taking any drug, like statin drugs that lowers LDL cholesterol without removing acidic lifestyle and dietary choices is a risk for heart attack, stroke and other dis-eases like diabetes. I have lowered cholesterol successfully in all cases of hyper-chlolesterolemia without drugs by just changing the diet and lifestyle to an alkaline pH Miracle lifestyle and diet that restores the alkaline design of the body.

One of my research clients Maren Hale was diagnosed with familial hypercholesterolemia and hyper-triglycerides with LDL’s over 400 mg/dl and triglycerides over 200 mg/dl. She was also overweight. Over a period of four years Maren lost over 70 pounds and lowered her cholesterol and triglycerides to healthy normal ranges on the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet. Maren and her family and extended family have been a research study of the University of Utah for familial hypercholesterolemia for over 60 years. Maren was the first of all family members to lower her cholesterol and triglycerides to normal ranges due to her commitment to living a pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet.


High cholesterol levels should be a warning to most people who inflammation caused by metabolic and dietary acid is present. It is a risk marker, and a symptom that can save your life! Eliminating the LDL cholesterol through drugs is the equivalent to eliminating the thermometer in a room that is too hot. It is illogical, and it does nothing to eliminate the dangerous cause of the symptom being expressed.

LDL cholesterol levels naturally drop whenever the body’s becomes less acidic and more alkaline in the interstitial fluids where acids are stored! And LDL cholesterol should never be forced lower with drugs because they WILL cause a heart attack or stroke! The pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet can reduce LDL cholesterol, but it is never because of a lowered cholesterol intake.

The natural drop in cholesterol and triglycerides happens only when a person stops eating toxic acidic foods, drinking toxic acidic drinks and stops toxic acidic thoughts that produce toxic acidic waste products that destroy the arteries and veins!

Do YOU Understand?

Because healthy arteries and veins do not need patching. Remember that a body typically produces 3-4 times the amount of LDL cholesterol than consumed. The fats that a person eats are therefore comparatively insignificant. Cholesterol will rise whenever the body’s need for cholesterol rises and in direct relationship to the level of acidic thoughts, words and deeds. So acidic trans-fats and inflammatory acidic substances are what need to be avoided. These toxic acidic wastes are what damage the arteries and veins, and a body will be required to do a great deal of patching as a consequence. I will reference to alkalizing or chelating herbs and minerals that lower cholesterol levels naturally later, but alkalizing and chelating herbs and minerals do it by lowering the body’s need for LDL cholesterol, not by forcefully lowering it like pharmaceuticals do.


Studies on the link between cholesterol and heart health have been manipulated for decades. The first studies on eggs showed elevated cholesterol levels because they had used dehydrated eggs, and studies of coconut oil yielded similar results because they had used partially hydrogenated coconut oil to get the results that they wanted. That is why I state that ALL scientific research is subjective NOT objective!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read about it here:

It is Simple – Cholesterol DOES NOT CAUSE Heart Disease!

Simply stated, without acid caused inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate on and in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without acid caused inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is acid caused inflammation from acidic lifestyle and dietary choices that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Acid caused inflammation is not complicated. The cycle of metabolic and dietary acid inflammation is perfect in how the body releases cholesterol to bind acids that cause inflammation in the first place. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury to acidic poisonous toxins from acidic foods and drinks the human body was never designed to process, a condition occurs called systemic latent tissue acidosis that is the cause of ALL inflammation. Chronic acidic inflammation is just as harmful as acute acidic inflammation and are both caused by an increase of dietary and metabolic acids.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself or herself repeatedly to acidic foods, drinks, drugs or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body? Well, smokers, alcohol, coffee black tea, soda pop, energy and sport beverage drinkers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream acidic diet that is low in polyunsaturated fats, high in acidic carbohydrates and highly acidic animal flesh, not knowing we were causing repeated acidic injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic acidic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.


Let me repeat: The injury and inflammation caused from acidic foods, drinks and metabolism in our blood vessels is the cause of stokes, heart attacks, diabetes and obesity and NOT the increase of cholesterol. A low healthy fat and salt diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine will cause strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and obesity.

What are the biggest culprits of chronic acidic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, dairy products, animal flesh, chocolate, coffee, tea, including green tea, alcohol, soda pops, vinegar, peanuts, mushrooms, flour and corn and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of saturated vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.

Take a moment to visualize rubbing a stiff brush repeatedly over soft skin until it becomes quite red and nearly bleeding if you kept this up several times a day, every day for five years. If you could tolerate this painful brushing, you would have a bleeding, swollen infected area that became worse with each repeated acid causing injury. This is a good way to visualize dietary and metabolic acids as the brush leading to the inflammatory process that could be going on in your body right now.


Regardless of where the acidic inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. Using Ultrasound I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the acidic foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with increased acid caused inflammation.

While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, chocolate or a carbonated drink our body responds alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. ACIDIC foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with saturated oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These acidic foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.

How does eating a simple sweet roll or a piece a chocolate create a cascade of acid causing inflammation to make you sick?

Imagine spilling acidic sugary syrup on your keyboard and you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell. When we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin and sodium bicarbonate whose primary purpose is to bind and solidify acids so they do NOT destroy healthy body and blood cells and cause internal bleeding. In addition, the body releases cholesterol to help solidify excess dietary and/or metabolic acids that have NOT been properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination – urination, perspiration, respiration and defecation.


The body solidifies acids to protect healthy tissues, glands and organs from ulceration and then degeneration. After years of an acidic lifestyle and diet solidified acids will build-up on the wall of the arteries and veins leading to atherosclerosis, stroke and heart attack.

What does all this have to do with inflammation? Blood sugar which is a metabolic acid is controlled in a very narrow range. Extra acidic sugar molecules that are not solidified and eliminated through the four channels of elimination will injure the blood vessel wall. This repeated acidic injury to the blood vessel wall causes irritation, inflammation, ulceration and eventual degeneration or heart disease and/or cancer. When you spike your blood sugar levels or acid levels several times a day, every day, with acidic foods or thoughts it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels.

While you may not be able to see it, rest assured, tissue, gland and organ acidosis is present. I have seen it in over 40,000 client/patients spanning over 30 years who all shared one common denominator — dietary and metabolic acid caused inflammation in their veins, arteries, glands, tissues and organs. This is what retained physiological acid looks like in the tissues using full-body thermography to show the acidic red and white hot spots.


Let’s get back to the sweet roll and chocolate. These innocent looking goodies not only contain the acid sugar, they are also fermented and processed in one of many saturated oils. Chips and fries are soaked in soybean oil; processed foods are manufactured with saturated oils for longer shelf life.

If the balance shifts by consuming excessive sugar, animal protein, vinegar, coffee, tea, alcohol, corn, peanuts and saturated oil, the cell membranes will be damaged and the body and blood cells will begin to degenerate causing even more acids leading to greater risk of inflammation and dis-ease.

Today’s mainstream American ACIDIC diet has produced an extreme imbalance in the alkaline design of the body and an increase in dietary and metabolic acids that cause ALL sickness and dis-ease. You read this correctly – ALL sickness and dis-ease is caused by metabolic, dietary, respiratory and/or environmental ADIDS! There are no other causes. Germs and viruses are the symptoms of cellular breakdown and NOT the cause of ANY disease. Simply said, germs do NOT cause dis-ease!


To make matters worse, eating these acidic foods and drinks causes the body to hold on to more fat as a depository for these excess acids that are NOT being properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination. That is why people get fat. The increase in fat is in direct relationship to the increase of acidic foods, drinks and lifestyle choices. The process that began with a sweet roll or a cup of coffee, or a piece of chocolate or a glass of wine turns into a vicious cycle over time that creates heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and finally, Alzheimer’s disease, as the acid caused inflammatory process continues unabated.


There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed acidic foods, the more we increase the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars, animal flesh, dairy products, vinegar, alcohol, coffee, tea, chocolate, soda pop, mushrooms, peanuts, corn, flour and saturated processed oils.

There is but one answer to quieting acid caused inflammation, and that is returning to foods closer to their natural alkaline state. To build muscle, eat more chlorophyll concentrated alkaline foods.


Choose carbohydrates that are very complex such as colorful fruit and vegetables. Cut out of your diet saturated oils from corn or soybean.

One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of saturated oil; soybean contains 6,940 mg. Instead, use olive oil, avocado oil, hemp oil or fax oil.

Forget the “science” that has been drummed into your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat having no place on its hydrogen chain to buffer metabolic and dietary acid is real science. It is acid that causes disease and ALL polyunsaturated oils help to buffer excess acids by the carbon chain picking up the hydrogen ion or acid on its unsaturation. In other words, all polyunsaturated fats whether Omega 1, 3, 6 or 9 buffer or neutralize all dietary and/or metabolic acids on their unsaturated carbon.

The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very acidic foods now causing an epidemic of acid caused inflammation,induration, ulceration and degeneration. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid foods high in cholesterol. We now have an epidemic of arterial acidic caused inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers.

Government nutrition guidelines recommend a diet high in carbohydrate regardless of the ample evidence of the health risks it promotes. Yet, heart disease and obesity rates have risen in correlation with a reduced intake of dietary fat. The Food Standards Agency states all individuals’ diets should contain “plenty of starchy foods such as rice, bread, pasta and potatoes”. In addition to this, “just a little saturated fat”. This recommendation is a recipe for heart disease and stroke because of its high level of dietary acid.

While science has moved on, nutritional advice lags behind. And in a study published in Open Heart, a group of researchers conclude that national dietary advice on fat consumption issued to millions in the 1970s to reduce the risk of heart disease which suggested that fat should form no more than 30% of daily food intake lacked any solid trial evidence and shouldn’t have been introduced.

While more circumspect, cardiologist Rahul Bahl wrote in a linked editorial:

“There is certainly a strong argument that an over-reliance in public health on saturated fat as the main dietary villain for cardiovascular disease has distracted from the risks posed by other nutrients, such as carbohydrates.”

Fat and High-Carbohydrate Foods

Some fats aren’t good – trans fats, for example, which are mostly man-made – while others, such as monounsaturated fats found in olive oil are seen as having beneficial qualities.

Today, government guidelines recommend that fats should compose no more than 35% of an individual’s daily calorie intake – and that saturated fat, in particular, ought to supply less than 11%.

Fat intake decreased from 36.6% to 33.7% from 1971 to 2006, while the intake of carbohydrates rose from 44.0% to 48.7%. Yet obesity levels have escalated.

There is evidence to also show that carbohydrates can lead to feelings of increased hunger. A recent study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating carbohydrate foods with a high glycemic index (bread, rice, pasta) caused effects on the brain that led to feelings of increased hunger, which could in turn lead to eating more.

Another study in 2013 found high-carb meals could leave you feeling hungrier hours later compared to a low-carb meal with more fibre, protein and fat. The team behind the research attributed this to the plummeting levels of blood sugar that regularly follows high-carb meals.

The Diet-Heart Hypothesis

At the University of Hull they have been also looking at the effects of saturated fats on triglyceride levels – a type of fat (lipid) found in the blood. Using coconut oil because of its high (90%) saturated fat content, we found that when coupled with exercise, it significantly reduced triglyceride levels. A recent Brazilian rat study also found that coconut oil and exercise could lower blood pressure.

So where does our unshakable idea that fat leads to heart disease come from? The diet-heart hypothesis, that low density lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol is raised in the blood by eating saturated fat, which then leads to clogged arteries and eventual heart disease, is not a credible claim.


This theory linking saturated fat and heart disease has been around since 1955 when Ansel Keys introduced his lipid hypothesis. Despite it being the foundation of dietary recommendations, it has never been proven and we have been advised to avoid certain foods including meat, dairy products and coconuts. And these myths are so deeply embedded in our minds, that recent science advocates have seen how hard it is to challenge established thinking.

 Saturated Fat and Cholesterol

When we talk about high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or LDL – often referred to as good and bad cholesterol – we aren’t actually referring to cholesterol itself. These lipoproteins actually carry cholesterol, fat and fat soluble vitamins in the bloodstream. It appears that elevated levels of cholesterol (or more accurately, cholesterol which is transported around the blood by lipioproteins) is correlated with an increase in the risk of heart disease.

However, correlation does not mean causation. Very low cholesterol is linked with an increased risk of death (though not from heart disease). And in the very old, research suggests cholesterol can be protective. So it’s fair to say the relationship between cardiovascular disease and total cholesterol is complex.

Type of cholesterol is important. The “good” (HDL) cholesterol is strongly linked with a reduced risk of heart disease. However, LDL, the “bad” cholesterol, is associated with an increased risk of heart disease. But it turns out that there are in fact subtypes of LDL which make this black and white picture more complicated. The actual size of the LDL particle is significant. Individuals are at a heightened risk of heart disease if they have most small, dense LDL particles, that may more easily lodge in the arteries, as opposed to those who have large LDL particles.

Your blood lipid profile is frequently used as a medical screening tool for abnormalities in lipids (including triglycerides and cholesterol). These blood lipid profile tests can identify approximate risks for cardiovascular disease and specific genetic diseases. Studies have also shown that saturated fats do not harm your blood lipid profile – and can actually improve it. Saturated fats could lower the risk of heart disease by shifting LDL cholesterol from dense small LDL to large LDL.

Numerous short-term feeding trials have shown that an increase in saturated fat consumption leads to a rise in overall LDL. Nevertheless, the result is inconsistent and weak. The methods used in a number of these research studies have been criticised – and plenty of studies support the contrary, that no association exists between total LDL and saturated fat consumption.

Cause and Correlation

If it was true that saturated fat did cause heart disease, then it follows that people who consume more would be at higher risk. But observational studies – again only illustrative of correlation not cause – haven’t shown this. One study looked at a population of 347,747 subjects from a total of 21 studies and concluded that there was “no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart or cardiovascular disease”. This has also been the conclusion of other reviews.

So What About Randomized Controlled Trials?

One such study divided 12,866 male subjects at a high risk of heart disease into a low-fat or Western diet group. After six years, no difference was found between them. The Women’s Health Imitative, the biggest randomized controlled trial in diet history, comprised of 48,835 postmenopausal women who were also divided into two similar groups and came up with similar findings.

The Cold-Pressed Organic Coconut Oil Connection

If you don’t care for the science, then take an everyday example. Look at the large populations of the Masai in Africa who consume large amounts of saturated fat but have low levels of coronary heart disease. Or the Tokelauans of New Zealand who consume a massive amount of saturated fat through coconuts: more than 60% of their daily calories come from coconuts. These populations have no history of heart disease. And the health benefits of coconut oil are now becoming known more widely.


We are learning so much more about fats and that there is no evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease. Leading nutrition experts have been calling for an amendment to dietary recommendations for more than ten years. But despite these calls and the high-quality evidence assembled throughout the past decade, doctors, governments – and by extension the public – still take extraordinarily little notice. But a decade of research to the contrary would suggest it’s time we moved away from entrenched thinking, towards a more enlightened attitude to saturated fat.


What you can do is choose whole, organic, raw, NON-GMO, alkaline foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured acidic foods and drinks. By eliminating acidic causing inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh, raw, organic, alkaline unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American ACIDIC diet.

The Worlds Top 5 Lifestyles & Diets for Health, Fitness, Vitality and Beauty in 2018

The Worlds Top 5 Lifestyles & Diets for Health, Fitness, Vitality and Beauty in 2018

Which Lifestyle and Diet Did YOU Follow in 2018!

Number 1

Dr. Young’s pH Miracle Alkaline Lifestyle and Diet


Victoria Beckham keeps her slender physique in shape by following the pH Alkaline Lifestyle and Diet, recommended by Robert O. Young PhD. This plan means you ingest ONLY alkaline foods and liquids to keep your acidic levels in your blood, interstitial fluids, intracellular fluids at an alkaline pH between 7.35 and 7.45. All of these fluids can be tested with the Full-Body 3-D Bio-Electro Scan and the non-invasive blood testing of the chemistry, including pH of the blood, stomach, intestines and interstitial fluids.

To learn more about these non-invasive medical tests click here: (

The following chart lists some of the acidic foods on the pH Miracle Alkaline Diet to eliminate completely or eat sparingly:

The following chart lists some of the foods you can eat freely on the pH Miracle alkaline diet:

The supermodel Elle Macpherson stated that following a plant-based pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet and taking supplements have helped her look younger than her 54 years. ( and http://www.phoreveryoung,com)


“When I turned 50 I realized things I did in my 20s weren’t working anymore,” Macpherson said. “I follow a plant-based alkaline diet, focusing on healthy, whole food. I take green powder and protein powder every day, and I drink three liters of water a day.” (,

So where does a 6’7″ man who weighs over 270 pounds get his protein from? Tony Robbins eats broccoli! Over 50 percent of the calories from steamed organic broccoli comes from protein. It is important to note that the body does not build muscle from protein – it builds it from red blood cells. Muscle, bone, and all organs and glands are made from red blood cells NOT protein! Tony is a strong advocate and walking testimony of Dr. Young’s alkaline lifestyle and diet which he teaches from the stage at ALL his events.


Prince Harry and Meghan follow the pH Miracle Alkaline Lifestyle and Diet. In fact it was Meghan who introduced Harry to the alkaline lifestyle.


So what keeps Tom Brady so healthy, fit and strong at the age of 41 and still playing NFL Football? The answer is the pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet!

Number 2

The Vegan Diet


Beyonce is a big fan of Marcos Borges 22 days of Vegan program which is a vegan meal service. Although not a full vegan, the singer ordered in the service to get in shape for Coachella. “The benefits of a plant-based diet need to be known,” Beyoncé said. “We should spend more time loving ourselves, which means taking better care of ourselves with good nutrition and making healthier food choices.”

The following are just a few of the foods I recommend that you can eat freely when following an Vegan Diet as outlined in The pH Miracle revised and updated book and The pH Miracle for Weight Loss –

Number 3

The Ancient Grains Diet


To keep her energy levels at an all-time high, Angelina Jolie snacks on ancient grains such as quinoa, chia seeds, millet, buckwheat and spelt. “She’s into eating products made from ancient grains and raves about their health benefits,” a source told Marie Claire. “She claims they provide her with nutrients she can’t find anywhere else, plus shinier skin.”

The wonderful benefits of ancients grains like quinoa, millet, buckwheat and spelt, they are low in carbohydrate (sugar) and higher in protein. Keep in mind though I only recommend these grains sparingly and no more than 10 grams of protein daily.

Remember, all body cells, including bone and muscle are made from blood NOT protein. And blood is made from chlorophyll (green foods), unsaturated oil, alkaline water and mineral salts or sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium.

Number 4

The Paleo Diet


Jessica Biel credits her super svelte physique down to the Paleo diet. Heavily endorsed by Pete Evans, the diet works on the ethos you go back to eating like a caveman and eradicate dairy, grains and legumes from your diet. “Eating Paleo just leans you down and slims you up and takes that little layer of fat and water-weight right off your body,” says Jessica. “I do a lot of cooking at home using fresh fish or lean meat like chicken and vegetables,” she adds.

The Paleo diet will provide short term benefits but long term damage from ALL the acidic foods from dairy, legumes and grains such as wheat. You are better off with both short and long term benefits by sticking with a diet that does not cause eventual gland, organ and tissue damage. That diet would be low carbohydrate, low protein and liberal amounts of healthy unsaturated oil, like hemp seed, flax seed, broccoli seed, carrot seed, cabbage seed, just to name a few.

Number 5

The Atkins Diet


Kim Kardashian lost 25 kilos in 11 months on the Atkins diet, which is a high acidic protein, low carb diet. “ Anyone who has had kids knows your body changes, and it’s hard to get your body back in shape,” she said. “It takes so much determination, and mental and physical power and energy.”

Unfortunately this diet also has short term benefits with long term damage, especially to the intestinal villi if you are ingesting animal protein which does not digest (unless you juice the animal flesh). Maybe that is why Kim looks bloated in the lower abdominal area. It is important to stay away from this diet unless your protein sources are from green plants such as avocado, broccoli and buckwheat.

Check out the above list of foods to avoid and especially avoid animal sources for safe and healthy weight loss.

Can You Prevent or Reverse Any Cancerous Condition With Lifestyle and Diet?

Lung Cancer is the Number 1 Killer in the World Today and is Preventable with Lifestyle and Diet!
Lung Cancer is the Number 1 Killer in the World Today and is Preventable with Lifestyle and Diet!

What is the number 1 cancer killer in the World today and can it be prevented!


If you are thinking lung cancer then you are right! It is now responsible for up to 90 percent of ALL cancers!

In 1987, lung cancer replaced breast cancer as the lea/ding cause of cancer deaths in women. More and more research continues to point out the correlation between diet and cancer. (1)

In February 2015, the American Cancer Society recommended that cancer survivors follow a “prudent diet” and specifically recommended a plant-based diet that is high in fruits, vegetables, unrefined grains and is low in red meat, processed meats, refined grains and sugars.(2)

Dr. Robert O. Young has been recommending a low acidic diet that he calls the pH Miracle lifestyle and diet which includes liberal amounts of high chlorophyll green vegetables and fruit including broccoli, broccoli sprouts, spinach, kale, wheat grass, barley grass, cucumber, parsley, lime, green pepper, and especially avocado. He also suggests eliminating all acidic foods including, corn, peanuts, cashews. coffee, black tea, alcohol, chocolate, banana, beef, chicken, pork, duck, fish, eggs and all dairy products including milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream. (3)(4)(5)(6)

American Cancer Society recommends that cancer survivors eat a plant-based alkaline diet!

More and more research has been done to assess the link between our food supply and cancer treatment. A 2013 study found that parsley killed up to 86 percent of lung cancer cells. Parsley contains a flavonoid called apigenin. Other plant sources of this flavonoid include celery, onions, chamomile tea, oregano, thyme, coriander, artichokes, and red grapes. (1)


Screen Shot 2018-12-16 at 2.12.10 AM.png

Dried parsley contains 4.5 percent pure apigenin coming in the highest in apigenin content by weight. Other studies have found act apigenin can kill breast cancer, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer cells. (1)

Apigenin found in parsley transformed 86 percent of all acidic cancerous lung cells!

A 2005 study found that apigenin inhibits the cell proliferation of lung cancer cell lines and recommended a combination of apigenin and anti-tumor drugs. (1)

A study from Ohio State University’s Comprehensive Cancer Center found that apigenin inhibited breast cancer cells “immortality.” Researchers found that this happens due to changing a step involved in gene regulation. This reprograms acidic cancerous cells by turning them into normal mortal cells that die naturally. (1)

Apigenin found to inhibit the acids that cause breast and prostate cancer cells “immortality,” reprogramming them into mortal cells that die naturally!

An Italian study found that eating parsley regularly resulted in a 68 percent reduction in lung cancer risk.(1)

Parsley is a powerful antioxidant or anti-acid that has been used as a diuretic. Parsley has been successfully used in treating and curing kidney stones, chronic inflammation caused by acidic waste buildup, and prostate and uterus issues. (1)

Traditionally parsley has been used to treat or break-up kidney stones. In fact, the German Commission E, a governmental advisory panel, has approved parsley for the prevention and the treatment of kidney stones. (1)

Parsley is rich in vitamin K, vitamin C, B-complex, iron, magnesium, chlorophyll, and histidine. Eating a diet rich in parsley can not only help buffer the metabolic and dietary acids that cause cancer but can enhance antioxidant levels throughout the body, including the brain and regulate the pH of the blood, interstitial fluids and the intracellular fluids keeping the pH alkaline at 7.365. (1)(6)

If you desire to incorporate more of these apigenin foods into your diet, try adding parsley to a juice, salad, soup, or main dish. If you have a juicer, follow this simple recipe below or if you do not have a juicer, just add parsley to your favorite green smoothie recipe!

Fresh Cucumber – Celery Juice with Ginger and Parsley


  • 2 celery ribs, cut into 3-inch lengths

  • 1 large English cucumber

  • One 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled

  • 1/2 medium bunch of parsley with stems

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. In an slow press juicer, juice the celery with the cucumber, ginger and parsley. Stir in the lemon juice. (3)(4) (5)

Dawn Kali Reverses Her Breast Cancer Following the pH Miracle Protocol and taking Herceptin to Lower Estrogen Levels

Dawn Kali who ran the pH Miracle Retreat for Cancer Patients in Thailand

Dawn Kali Reverses Her Breast Cancer Following the pH Miracle Protocol and taking Herceptin to Lower Estrogen Levels

The following pictures are PET Scans of Dawn Kali. These pictures show the before and after PET scans provided by her oncologist Dr. Smith in July and then again in October of 2013. You will see that Dawn Kali, with sure PET scan evidence that her cancer went into remission completely in October of 2013. There are three bright areas on the spine and one bright area on the hip showing active cancer and bone loss.  In October of 2013 the PET scans were done again by Dr. Smith showing no cancer anywhere in Dawn’s body.  She was in complete remission following the pH Miracle Protocol and taking Herceptin

Dr. Smith declared Dawn’s cancer was in remission in October, 2013.

The PET scans above were taken by Dawn’s oncologist, Dr. Smith in June/July of 2013 showing metastatic cancer to the spine and hip, indicating Stage 4 breast cancer with mets to the bones.
In the above Pet Scan taken in August, 2013 there is no sign of cancer in Dawn’s spine, organs, breast or lymph nodes!

In the above PET scan taken October, 2013 there is no evidence of cancer in Dawn’s lower extremities, including her hip  bones.

No More Metastatic Breast Cancer

The two PET scans above show total remission of the Dawn’s bone cancer, diagnosed by Dr. Smith. Dr. Smith declares Dawn cancer-free in October of 2013.  Look at the date above showing October 2013 as the month Dawn was in complete remission from her metastatic HER2 positive State 4 breast cancer originally diagnosed in 2007.  Dawn has outlived her prognosis for this type of cancer.

Why were these before and after PET scans showing the reversal of Dawn’s cancer in October not shown to the Jury?

Where is the fraud? Dawn was seeing her doctor every 3 months for check-ups and never paid The pH Miracle Center for ANY non-invasive scans or treatments.

Follow the money?  Dawn was making over $150,000 a year by heading up the pH Miracle Coaching program.

Dawn Kali talks about her inflammatory ductal cell carcinoma breast cancer diagnosis openly with Dr. Robert O. Young in 2013. This is one of the many times when Dawn Kali is actually telling the truth.  Dawn also declared herself cancer free in December, 2013 in a recorded pH Miracle training of 30 potential pH Miracle Coaches.

Listen to the following two audios with Carolyn and Dawn hosting a Conference call for a training they were doing for around 30 pH Miracle Coaches.  The dates of these Conference calls were  June 2012 and August 2013.

  1. June 6th, 2012 – August 12th, 2013

Below, a note from Caroline Robitaille (Dawn Kali is now partnering with Caroline Robitaille who has led many people to better health with amazing results.)

“As many of you know, Charles and I started implementing a healthier way of life almost a year ago.  We wanted to take charge of our own health and not leave it to a future of foreseeable medication and/or surgeries.  Since then I’ve lost a lot of weight, no more aches and pains… including a back issue that showed up a few years ago.  Never in my life have I felt this fantastic!  And then there is Charles… he has completely reversed his diabetes; his numbers went from high 300’s to a low of 89.  His arthritis is gone, no more aches and pains… including a back issue that showed up for him last year as well.  We experienced these positive changes all within a few months.  And we’re still moving towards optimum health!  We have both had our “Live Blood Analysis” done with Dawn Kali, so that we could first identify our problem areas and then watch the progress.  And just for the heck of it… we also had our blood work done with our medical doctors and everything has not only improved but we are in the healthy range in all areas.  Oh and the really fun part is that recently Charles went to have his eyes examined because he was feeling like it was time for new glasses.  It was true; he needed new glasses all right….BECAUSE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER HIS EYE SIGHT HAD IMPROVED!”

Now, as of January 1st I have had the privilege of coaching over 40 people towards optimum health and it’s been an amazing experience for me and them! J They too have improved in additional areas such as; cholesterol, fibromyalgia, headaches have disappeared, increased energy, mental clarity, skin rashes have disappeared, whitened teeth, brighter eyes, shiny hair, reports of feeling like they have a new lease on life… just to name a few.

I know I sound like an infomercial but it’s only because I am so passionate about this.  I’ve seen first hand how a healthy diet and lifestyle can significantly change everything in a relatively short amount of time and I want to share it with you!  It’s easy, it’s fun and it’s life changing.  No magic pills – just learning how out-of-control our diets, stress levels and lifestyles have become – with simple ways to make positive changes.

A few years ago, Dawn Kali, a young woman who was faced with Breast Cancer was told by her doctors that she needed aggressive chemotherapy, radiation and multiple surgeries.  Instead her research led her to alternative ways and Dr. Robert Young.  Following his protocol she was able to avoid conventional treatments and heal herself.  Today, she is cancer free and has a beautiful little three month old baby boy.  Dawn then trained under Dr. Robert Young as a Microscopist and is now performing ‘Live Blood Analysis’ that can show you how to detect problems at the preventative stages.   

We have recently joined forces to spread the word and taking our message on the road!  I would love to see you, family and friends at one of our talks if you think you have time to learn more about improving your health. J  We have two upcoming presentations but there are more to follow in Marin, Healdsburg and San Francisco. J These presentations are free and informative. J  Come listen to Dawn Kali and I tell our stories while we show you what simple changes you can make for a healthier you and you will see what healthy blood vs. unhealthy blood looks like!”

Ingesting iJuice Avocado Seed Oil Can Help Fight Cancer

Screen Shot 2018-10-26 at 3.03.34 AM.png

Eating Avocado Seeds Can Help Fight Cancer (and 4 Other Health Benefits) –

The avocado seed and more important the avocado seed oil contains anti-tumor properties, especially the potent antioxidants called flavonols. In a 2013 study published in the journal, Pharmaceutical Biology, researchers from the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia found that the oil from avocado fruit and seeds caused leukemia cells to self-destruct.

In a more recent study published in the peer-reviewed journal Cancer Research, researchers discovered that a compound found in avocado seed extract called avocatin B was effective phytochemical against acute myeloid leukemia cells. In total, study researchers tested 800 natural health products against the human acute myeloid leukemia cells.

Avocado Seed Oil Overview –


Screen Shot 2018-10-26 at 3.40.48 AM

Avocados are, by far, my favorite food; in fact, I try to eat at least one avocado every day. The green, creamy fruit can pretty much go with anything. I add half an avocado to my morning smoothie and another half to my salad at dinnertime…and if I have a craving for tomato and avocado, I love making homemade guacamole!

Like most people, I use to toss the avocado seed in the garbage. But it turns out avocado seeds and avocado seed oil are not only healthy, but they have even been used in traditional medicine for centuries.

Is It Safe to Eat Avocado Seeds?


Screen Shot 2018-10-26 at 3.40.03 AM

“Wait a minute,” some may say. “Aren’t fruit seeds and oil are toxic?” Well, fruit seeds from cherries, plums, and apricots contain the toxic chemical cyanide, and large quantities of these seeds can lead to vomiting, dizziness, and even death. But that is not the case with the avocado seed and avocado seed oil

Avocado seeds and oil contain tannins, which are mildly toxic; however, you would have to consume several before you’d notice any negative health effects. In a 2013 study published in the Scientific World Journal, researchers concluded that the avocado seed oil was safe and it did not show any human toxicity.

5 Healthy Benefits of Eating Avocado Seeds and Oil


Screen Shot 2018-10-26 at 3.03.34 AM

We know avocados are loaded with folate, vitamin B, and healthy fats. But avocado seeds and oil are nutrient-rich as well. The avocado seed is a beneficial source of bioactive phytochemicals.

It contains fatty acids, triterpenes, phytosterols, and glucosides from abscisic acid. The avocado seed also contains 70% of the avocado’s antioxidant content. The antioxidant phytochemicals in avocado seeds include proanthocyanidins and flavonols. The avocado seed is also considered one of the best sources of soluble fiber.

What are the health benefits of eating avocado seeds and oil?

They contain antifungal, antibiotic, antimicrobial, insecticidal, larvicidal, amoebicidal, giardicidal, hypolipidemic, and antihypertensive properties. Eating avocado seeds also has other valuable health benefits.

1. Avocado Seeds and Oil Help Fight Cancer

The avocado seeds and oil contain anti-tumor properties, especially the potent antioxidants called flavonols. In a 2013 study published in the journal Pharmaceutical Biology, researchers from the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia found that extract from avocado fruit and seeds caused leukemia cells to self-destruct.

In a more recent study published in the peer-reviewed journal Cancer Research, researchers discovered that a compound found in avocado seed extract called avocatin B was effective against acute myeloid leukemia cells. In total, study researchers tested 800 natural health products against the human acute myeloid leukemia cells.

2. Avocado Seeds and Oil Benefits the Heart

Screen Shot 2018-09-26 at 4.50.38 PM

In a 2012 study published in the journal Plant Foods for Human Nutrition, avocado seed flour reduced the total cholesterol and LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol levels in mice. Researchers also suggested that avocado seeds could offer protection against arterial plaque formation.

The dietary fiber found in avocado seeds is linked with lower cholesterol. The fiber will bind to the cholesterol in the intestinal tract and prevent it from being absorbed. Other research shows that avocado seeds can help improve high cholesterol and hypertension. It can also help fight inflammation and diabetes.

3. Avocado Seed Oil Aids Digestive

Eating avocado seeds can also help with digestion. South Americans once used avocado seeds for treating gastric ulcers, severe diarrhea (dysentery), acute diarrhea, and other digestive problems. The antioxidants and fiber found in the avocado seed are beneficial for digestion.

4. Avocado Seed Oil Strengthens the Immune System

A strong immune system is a great way to prevent disease. Avocado seeds and skins contain greater antioxidant levels, including proanthocyandins and catehchins.

They have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce stiffness, swelling, joint pain, and diseases. The anti-inflammatory effects also help strengthen the immune system and prevent the expulsion of dietary and metabolic acids called cold or flu.

In an in-vitro study, published in the journal Revista de Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical in 2009, researchers found that the antifungal and antibiotic effects of avocado seed extract could inhibit harmful pathogens such as candida, along with other fungi. Fungal and candida infections are related to a weakened immune system.

5. Avocado Seed Oil Helps Reduce Wrinkles

Evidence shows that avocado seed oil can increase collagen in the skin, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Avocado seed oil is also used to treat acne flare-ups.

To safely remove the avocado seed from the avocado:

  • Cut the avocado by slicing around the pit in order to cleanly remove the seed.
  • Insert your knife tip into the pit, twist, and gently pull.
  • Finally, remove the avocado seed from the knife.
  • Simply put the avocado seed into a plastic bag and then crush it with a hammer (or a blunt object).
  • Combine the crushed seed and blended avocado seeds in an Vitamix blender with iJuice Avocado Seed Oil with your favorite smoothie ingredients, such as avocado meat and dark leafy green vegetables, like spinach and kale. If you have a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix, you will not need to crush the avocado seed first, but you will need to add alkaline water.

104 Year Old Retired Japanese Pharmacy Chief Said: “The World Needs To Know, Alkaline Water Kills Cancer”

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.52.03 PM

Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara
You’ve probably heard or read that cancer cells can not live in an alkaline environment because alkaline water is extremely saturated with reduced hydrogen ions (OH-) or electrons (-) that buffer or neutralize the hydrogen ions (H+) or protons (+) that can cause cancer!

What Is Alkaline Water?

The pH (potential hydrogen ions or protons) scale runs from zero to fourteen with 7 being the med-point. A liquid with a pH of less than 7 is considered acid unless it donates more base or electrons than acids or protons. A basic or alkaline substance that contributes more electrons than protons is referred to as an electron donor and is considered alkaline regardless of the ph of the substance on the pH scale.  For example your tap water is generally mixed with chlorine making the water base or alkaline at a pH of 7 or above.  Because tap water contains other acidic substances such as antibiotics (acids), hormones (acids) and heavy metals this makes tap water a hydrogen or proton donor and is considered acidic to the stomach, blood and interstitial fluids of the Interstitium (the fluids that surround every human cell in the body).

(This illustration shows the compartments of interstitial fluids of the Interstitium)

When the body builds up acids in the interstitial fluids this is when you feel low energy, fatigue, start gaining weight and are at risk for serious health challenges such as diabetes and cancer.

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.48.51 PM

These negative health effects are completely avoidable by just drinking pure, reduced electro-rich alkaline water and eating organic green electron-rich alkaline vegetables and fruit such as lemon, lime, tomato, green pepper, avocado, cucumber, spinach, parsley, broccoli, and peppermint leaf, just to name a few.  To learn more about acidic and alkaline foods read, The pH Miracle, revised and updated –

Importance Of Alkalinity

The foods we eat, the liquids we drink, the air that we breath and the thoughts that we have can determine our overall pH levels and has been the basis of my research for 40 years.

Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany, received two Nobel Prizes in 1931 and 1952 for discovering that all cancer cells and tumors are bathed in an acidic interstitial fluid environment and suggested this was the cause of cancer.  He also managed to prove that cancer cannot thrive in an alkaline, electron-rich  environment where the pH level in the interstitial fluids is 7.36 to 7.4.

According to Dr. Warburg, acidosis (excess of hydrogen ions or protons) is not only connected to the development of cancer, but it was also the cause of cancer and other diseases like osteoporosis, diabetes and heart disease.

Here is the special anti-acid or alkalizing, electron-donor beverage you can drink every day prevent the build-up into the acid holding compartments in the Interstitium.


  • 1 organic lemon

  • 1/2 organic cucumber

  • 1/4 of organic ginger root

  • 1/2 cup of organic peppermint leaf



  1. Before you cut the organic ginger, peel a small amount of it.
  2. Slice up all the ingredients and add one glass of alkaline, electron-rich water.
  3. Do not throw the ingredients after one use if you want to get the most out of them.
  4. If you keep adding new alkaline, electron-rich water, they will last around three days.
  5. Drink the alkaline, electron-rich water first thing in the morning in order to receive the optimum results!

How Does It Work?

Organic lemon possesses numerous alkalizing, electron-donor properties. Organic lemon is high in potassium bicarbonate making it inherently alkaline and an electron-donor. It is also a powerful disinfectant and antibacterial compound which helps in the treatment of numerous conditions from bad breath to cholera, and has even 22 anti-cancer properties the most important being bicarbonates of sodium and potassium.

CDC confirms 62 cases of Post-Polio illness or Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP)!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed 62 cases of a post polio neurological condition called acute flaccid myelitis, also known as AFM.  So far this year in the U.S. more than 90 percent of the cases involved children 18 or younger, with an average age of just 4 years old.

AFM is an illness that affects the nervous system, specifically the area of spinal cord called gray matter. It causes the muscles and reflexes in the body to become weak or even paralyzed. Cases of AFM are characterized by a sudden onset of arm or leg weakness and loss of muscle tone and reflexes.

Its symptoms are identical to those of poliomyelitis or polio which is associated with a so-called virus.  Years of research have shown that these cases of polio and post-polio are associated with chemical poisoning or organochlorines used as a pesticide in farming found in all of our food sources (except for organically grown food).

Table 1: This graph shows polio in the United States in a context rarely (if ever) portrayed since Dr. Morton Biskind, the environmental context. [1] “DDT” and “DDT-like chemicals” are selected for this graph as the least complex way to represent a broad overview of the evolution of the technology of, and potential for, mass acidic chemical poisoning. (US Vital Statistics, US Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C.) [2][6]

Additional symptoms can include facial drooping or weakness, difficulty swallowing and slurred speech.

This condition, which may be caused by acidic poisoning from DDT like chemicals found in all non-organic fruit, vegetables, poultry and meat can lead to paralysis and even death, but no deaths have been reported so far this year.

Some prominent organochlorines are chlorobenzene, PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) and DDT (dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane). [3] Chlorobenzene is a precursor, a foundational compound used in the production of many industrial organochlorines as a chemical pesticide. [4] In the U.S., high production of chlorobenzene began in 1915, soon after the beginning of World War I. [5]

The above graph is a compilation of new cases per year (not incidence, as portrayed elsewhere herein). The data for the last half of the 20th century was gathered from U.S. Vital Statistics. [6] The very earliest numbers, from 1887 to about 1904, and the post polio numbers, are interpolated from the general historical commentary regarding those periods. [7] (see bibliography on Homepage and NYC Health Commissioner Haden Emerson’s compilations). While the graph is not perfectly accurate, due to changing methods of diagnoses and record-keeping within the medical system, it does give a reliable overall picture of Polio cases in terms of known literature and records.

The source for the U.S. and Swiss discoveries of paralysis in calves is from Van Nostrand’s Encyclopedia of Science and Engineering (1995), vol. 5, p1725. The phrase “Pesticides as a Panacea: 1942-1962” is a subtitle found in Encyclopedia Britannica, Macropaedia (1986). [8] Refer to other graphs (Overview) for specific pesticide comparisons with Polio incidence.

In 1915 Hooker Electrochemical began massive, unprecedented production of chlorobenzene (8,200 metric tons per year) and Dow Chemical began large-scale production soon thereafter. [9]

Chlorobenzenes are the basis for picric acid explosive used in World War I. [10] They have also been used in the manufacture of wood treatments, war gas, herbicides, insecticides, bactericide, moth control, and polymer resins. [11] (Mono) chlorobenzene is the base compound for DDT production. [12] Currently in the U.S., 15 million pounds of p- dichlorobenzene production goes into room deodorants. [13] According to Peter Duesberg, CDC’s investigation into Legionnaires disease ignored toxic chemical causes and created a new false field of study regarding the Legionella bacterium. [[4]

The sudden surge of chlorobenzene production coincides in time and place (1915, Niagara Falls) to be considered as probable cause for the epidemic of central nervous system diseases that followed the next year in the New York City region. [15] This epidemic lasted only six months, June to November, with 82% of the cases occurring in just 8 weeks. [16] While Polio literature terms this a world-wide Polio epidemic, it was peculiarly a phenomena of the U.S. and was especially prominent in the New York City region. [17] This is strange behavior for a supposedly so-called predatory Poliovirus, in an era, a continent, wholly unprotected by so-called miracle vaccines!

The number of new cases for 1916 (40,485) were calculated by multiplying the U.S. incidence rate by the U.S. population. [18] The number seems too high because of Naomi Rogers’ statements that worldwide new cases in 1916 were 27,000, that two-thirds of world Polio new cases were in the U.S. and that New York City new cases were 9,000. [19] While this discrepancy exists, the data is still useful for showing relative case numbers and/or incidence for the early 20th century. [See Tables 1,3,4,5,8,9,10 and 11]

Both Polio epidemics occurred two years after the beginning of World War I and World War II, if we use the dates of the epidemics, 1916 and 1942. [20]

DDT and “DDT-like chemicals” are used to represent the major organochlorine pesticides and organochlorines of similar neurotoxic character. [21] Most of the industrial organochlorines can produce CNS disease symptoms similar to Polio. [22] [Refer to Tables 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10 and 11] below to see the relationship between DDT and DDT-like chemical production and the incidence of Polio.

Other Poisonous DDT-Like Pesticide Composite

Just over three billion pounds of persistent pesticides are represented in the Table 2 above and 3 below. Virtually all peaks and valleys correlate with a direct one-to-one relationship with each pesticide as it enters and leaves the US market. Generally, pesticide production precedes polio incidence by 1 to 2 years. The variation may be to variations in reporting methods and the time it takes to move pesticides from factory to warehouse, through distribution channels, onto the food crops and to the dinner table. A composite of these graphs, of the persistent pesticides–lead, arsenic, and the dominant organochlorines (DDT and BHC) is presented in Table 10.

The four chemicals were not selected arbitrarily. These are representative of the major pesticides in use during the last major polio epidemic. They persist in the environment as neurotoxins that cause polio-like symptoms, polio-like physiology, and were dumped onto and into human food at dosage levels far above that approved by the FDA. They directly correlate with the incidence of various neurological diseases called “polio” before 1965. They were utilized, according to Dr. Biskind, in the “most intensive campaign of mass poisoning in known human history.” [23]

Critique of Pesticides and Polio Vaccination

It certainly appears, from the above graphs, that the vaccination programs arrived a few years too late to be credited for declining polio case numbers. The programs were close enough, however, for media to shoehorn them into their historical position. This quote from Time Magazine (March 28, 1994) is a typical example:

“The great postwar epidemic peaked in the U.S. in 1952, when more than 20,000 children were paralyzed by polio and it tapered off in the early ’60s, after the Salk vaccine and then the Sabin oral version were introduced.” [23]

This smooth, loaded phrase, framed with glossy photos and clever captions, goes down like several shots of Vodka and with the same physiological effects. However, if we contain our admiration, and review the actual data, we realize that the great Polio epidemic actually occurred from 1942 (or gradually, beginning decades earlier) to 1962, that is, it was not a “postwar epidemic”. (Refer to Table 1) The epidemic declined not “in the early ’60s”, but a full decade earlier, in the early 1950s. Polio cases per year did not “taper off… after the Salk vaccine” as Time would have us believe — new cases per year dove resolutely downward two years before the Salk vaccine field trials and four years before the vaccination programs were firmly underway. The decline of Polio actually occurred after heated discussions regarding the dangers of DDT that began with in-house government/industry reviews of DDT in 1951, following Dr. Morton Biskind and other’s criticism of pesticides which began in 1945. [23 to 85] These discussions were followed by a phase-out through industry compliance, a huge shift of sales to third-world countries, a phase-in of less-persistent pesticides, which was facilitated by legislation in 1954 and 1956, (86) a renewed public image regarding the proper use and dangers of pesticides, [87] the cancellation of DDT registration by 1968, [88] and eventually the official ban of many of the persistent organochlorine pesticides by 1972 (in U.S. and developed countries). [89]

Notice that while pesticide production directly correlates with new polio cases per year through every peak and valley, the Salk vaccine enters only after Polio’s decline. (Refer to Tables 1 and 4) Salk’s point of entry is not sufficient evidence to be routinely offered as proof for the victory of vaccines over the Poliovirus, as Time implies, [90] and as implied by Hayes and Laws, [91] and virtually all other presentations of polio history in whatever media or educational forum.

The molecular biologist, Peter Duesberg, in his attempt to give Modern Medicine some credence with regard to virus causality (before refuting HIV causality with AIDS), [92] apparently felt he could assume, in Inventing the AIDS Virus, that, …the sudden, frightening polio epidemic that exploded in the Western nations, brought home by troops returning from the Pacific theater in 1945. [93]

Yet a glance at the graphs in Tables 1 and 4 shows his statement to be inaccurate. Polio was entrenched in the U.S. long before returning troops, and the increased Polio cases per year correlate much more consistently with pesticide production than returning troops. A rise in new cases per year that peaked in 1945 can be clearly attributed to the government’s release of war surplus DDT to the public market in 1945, not vague data about “troops returning from the Pacific theater in 1945”. The troops were heavily treated with DDT years before the U.S. civilian population and as can be expected, in light of the acidic chemical poison-theory, the troops suffered unusually high Polio incidence rates when compared to the non-treated populations where they were stationed, and soldiers based in the U.S.. [94] The unusual drama and rash assumption that fills this excerpt of Peter Duesberg’s writings gives a sense that he has taken the whole package of ingrained Polio images for granted. [95]

Pesticide Phase-Out and Vaccinations Phase-In

DDT and BHC were phased out from the developed nations and at the same time vaccination programs were dramatically credited with saving these countries from the ravages of the Poliovirus. (96) However, the banned pesticides continued with higher than ever total distribution in the under-developed countries thanks to W.H.O.’s anti-mosquito campaigns, where to this day acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), Polio, and DDT/BHC still prevail. (97) DDT application, DDT phase-out programs, and Polio vaccination programs are all being directed in these countries concurrently by the World Health Organization with little or no success. (98)

Registration for DDT was canceled in 1968, and DDT was banned by the EPA in 1972 — after the major organochlorines (DDT, BHC) had been gradually phased out of the U.S. market by the chemical industry and replaced with the less environmentally persistent pesticides, the organophosphates. (99)

Post-Polio Pesticides

In 1983, via new legislation, DDT was allowed back into the U.S. marketplace, but only in pesticide blends. (100) Within only a few months of this re-entry, a new kind of polio epidemic suddenly occurred. (101) It was labeled “Post-Polio”, the re-emergence of Polio symptoms in former victims. (102) This has involved approximately 600,000 victims and is shown in Table I above. Like most of the data, this correlation is not even a whisper in the mainstream media.

Central nervous system diseases other than Polio continues in the U.S. and throughout the world: acute flaccid paralysis, chronic fatigue syndrome, encephalitis, meningitis, muscular sclerosis, and rarely in humans, rabies. (103)

The harsh realities of government policy are stated in Casarett and Doull’s Toxicology (1996): “Although government agencies and industry have been slow in their re-evaluation of a vast array of pesticides in use, reassessment often comes in the wake of or concomitant with some recently disclosed adverse environmental or health effect.” (104) This after-the-fact approach to pesticide poisoning is puzzling enough without questioning Casarett and Doull’s careful usage of the words: “often”, “some”, “recently”, and “disclosed”. The acidic chemical environmental correlations of “Post-Polio are overlooked.

Searching PubMed has not been successful. However, an online a paper entitled “The Environmental Aspects of The “Post-Polio” Syndrome”, was found. This article establishes a strong correlation between environmental acidic chemical factors and “Post-Polio”. (105)

No other similar articles are to be found, and no abstracts were available, although it can be ordered from PubMed. Poliovirus presence in “Post-Polio” according to immunity and vaccination theories, if anyone should be immune to Polio, it should be former Polio victims, however, numerous studies of “Post-Polio” victims have found evidence of active Poliovirus. (106) (107) (108)

Polio images are projected as if this data doesn’t exist. It does not appear that money is being directed into these kinds of research studies.

Farr’s Law

Farr’s Law requires, for an epidemic to be a valid example of contagion, that the epidemic increase its incidence rates exponentially. (109) Since Polio has been ubiquitous since the beginning of human history, its incidence rate should have peaked long ago and universal immunity conferred, if immunity was ever required, and if the Poliovirus was actually a predator or even existed! Polio’s non-compliance with Farr’s Law is explained by viro pathologists with a unique argument, the inverse of the argument usually given to support so-called germ theory. (110) The argument is that the Poliovirus, which has been intimate with mankind since the beginning of history, suddenly became estranged from humans because of modern hygiene, and thus humans lost their natural immunity to the virus. (111) So it is modern hygiene and the resulting lack of exposure to the virus that is said to have caused the Polio epidemics to rage as never before. (112) It is interesting that for only one brief moment, viro-pathologists are willing to become eco-nutritional types who appreciate the value of natural breast feeding and the importance of the internal microbiological ecology conferred positively upon humans as I have suggested in my pH Miracle books and other published articles. (113)

Three different promotions of their inverse or perverse argument follows:

1)   The prominent book on polio history by Naomi Rogers, where the inverse argument resides in the title, Dirt and Disease: Polio Before FDR. (114) The language style here is popular. (115)

2)   In Textbook of Child Neurology (1995), John H. Menkes promotes the inverse argument with scientific language style: “Poliomyelitis… is less likely to be symptomatic in areas with inadequate sanitation, because poor sanitation is conducive to exposure at an age when lingering

transferred maternal immunity can attenuate the clinical picture.” (116)

3)   In the propaganda film, A Paralyzing Fear: The Story of Polio in America. This was funded by the government and pharmaceutical firms and released in 1998. (117)

The New York Times (March 4, 1998) reviews the film. It reinforces the fundamental tenets of the Polio culture, beginning with a quotation from a section that portrays a “vintage film clip”: “My name is virus Poliomyelitis,” intones a cultivated, sinister male voice, as a camera pans over fair-weather clouds from which a hollow shadow emerges carrying the silhouette of a crutch. “I consider myself quite an artist, a sort of sculptor,” the voice continues. “I specialize in grotesques, twisting and deforming human bodies. That’s why I’m called The Crippler.”

Having dramatically demonized the Poliovirus, the medical cavalry rides to the rescue: …the epidemics grew steadily worse each year, with the number of new cases climbing from 5,000 in 1933 to 59,000 in 1952. (Refer to Tables 1 and 4)

Salvation came in 1954 with the Salk vaccine…And the inverse argument is now fit to print:

“The irony of the rise of polio in the 20th century, the movie reports, is that its prevalence was a result of improved sanitation. In grubbier times, babies and very young children developed antibodies to the disease, which had been around forever. A cleaner environment left increasing numbers of children with no natural immunity. (118)

So The New York Times review concisely presents the standard Polio images:

“the predatory virus, paralytic horror, epidemics, salvation via the Salk vaccine, and a unique exception from Farr’s Law.” (119)

I have my own personal concerns that anyone at NYT actually wrote this article, rather that it was probably supplied to the journalist as a suggested article, to be adjusted to the author’s style, thus essentially a customized press release.

The Epidemic Intelligence, Inventing The AIDS Virus (1996): The CDC’s disease-control mission was increasingly being regarded as obsolete, prompting serious discussions about abolishing the CDC altogether. (120) The situation changed in 1949 when the CDC brought on board Alexander Langmuir, an associate professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health. (121) Langmuir was the CDC’s first VIP, bringing with him both his expertise in epidemiology (the statistical study of epidemics) and his high-level connections — including his security clearance as one of the few scientists privy to the Defense Department’s biological warfare program……Langmuir and talked public officials and Congress into giving the CDC contingent powers to deal with potential emergencies… (122)

In July of 1951 he assembled the first class of the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS), composed of twenty-three young medical or public health graduates. After six weeks of intensive epidemiological training, these EIS officers were assigned for two years to hospitals or state and local health departments around the country. Upon completing their field experience, EIS alumni were free to pursue any career they desired, on the assumption that their loyalties would remain with the CDC and that they would permanently act as its eyes and ears. (123) The focus of this elite unit was on activism rather than research and was expressed in its symbol — a shoe sole worn through with a hole. According to British epidemiologist Gordon Stewart, a former CDC consultant, the EIS was nicknamed the “medical CIA.” (124)

Do YOU Believe the Polio Viral Theory?

The first isolation of a virus was achieved in 1892 by Russian bacteria hunter Dimitri Iwanowski, who gathered fluid from diseased tobacco plants. He passed this liquid through a filter fine enough to retain bacteria; yet to Iwanowski’s surprise, the bacteria-free filtrate easily made healthy plants sick. In 1898 a Dutch botanist, Martinus Willem Beijerinck, repeating the experiment, also recognized that there was an invisible cause and named the infectious agent “tobacco mosaic virus.” In the same year as Beijerinck’s report, two German scientists purified a liquid containing filterable viruses that caused foot-and-mouth disease in cattle (viruses were at one time called “filterable viruses,” but eventually the term “filterable” came to apply only to viruses, and was dropped). Walter Reed followed in 1901 with a filtrate responsible for yellow fever, and soon dozens of other disease-causing viruses were found.

In 1935 another American, Wendell M. Stanley, went back to the beginning and created pure crystals of tobacco mosaic virus from a filtered liquid solution. He affirmed that these crystals could easily infect plants, and concluded that a virus was not a living organism, since it could be crystallized like salt and yet remained infectious. Subsequently, bacteriologists all over the world began filtering for viruses, and a new area of biology was born-virology.

Historically, medical science has vacillated on the question of whether a virus is alive. Originally it was described as nonliving, but is currently said to be an extremely complex molecule or an extremely simple microorganism, and is usually referred to as a parasite having a cycle of life. (The term “killed” is applied to certain viral vaccines, thus implying an official conviction that viruses live.) Commonly composed of either DNA or RNA cores with protein coverings, and having no inherent reproductive ability, viruses depend upon the host for replication. They must utilize the nucleic acids of living cells they infect to reproduce their proteins (i.e., trick the host into producing them), which are then assembled into new viruses like cars on an assembly line. Theoretically, this is their only means of surviving and infecting new cells or hosts.

The Replicating Virus Theory

Then it was discovered that, when bacteria slowly begin to die, bacteria create tiny, apparently lifeless forms of survival, the so-called spores. It was then suspected that these spores were toxic and that they were the so-called pathogenic poisons. This was then refuted, since the spores are rapidly developing into bacteria when their vital resources are being restored. When scientists in the laboratory observed that the weak, highly inbred bacteria perished very quickly while turning into much smaller structures than the spores, it was first believed that the bacteria were being killed by the alleged pathogenic poisons, called viruses, and that the viruses were thereby replicating.

The Invention of Bacterial Viruses

Due to the belief that these – at the time of their discovery still invisible- structures were killing the bacteria, they were called phages/bacteriophages, “eaters of bacteria”. Only later it was determined that merely highly inbred and therefore almost non-viable bacteria can be made to turn into phages, or bacteria which are being destroyed so fast that they do not have time to form spores.

The introduction of the electron microscopy led to the discovery of the structures resulting from the biological transformation or pleomorphism of bacteria when these were suddenly dying or when the metabolism of the highly inbred germs was overwhelmed by processes triggered by the adding of “phages”. It was also discovered that there are hundreds of types of different-looking “phages”. The discovery of phages, the so-called bacterial “viruses”, reinforced the wrong assumption and the belief that there were human and animal viruses that looked the same and had the same structure. This is not and cannot be the case, for several different reasons.

After introducing chemical examination techniques in biology, it was discovered that there are thousands of types of phages and that phages of one type always have the same structure. They consist of a particular molecule, made of nucleic acid, which is covered in a shell of proteins of a given number and composition. It was only later discovered that merely the bacteria which had been highly inbred in the test tube could turn into phages themselves, by contact with phages, but this never applied to natural bacteria or bacteria which had just been isolated from their natural environment. In this process, it was discovered that these “bacterial viruses” actually serve to provide other bacteria with important molecules and proteins, and that the bacteria themselves emerged from such structures.

Before it could be established that the “bacterial viruses” cannot kill natural bacteria, but they are instead helping them to live and that bacteria themselves emerge from such structures, these “phages” were already used as models for the alleged human and animal viruses. It was assumed that the human and animal viruses looked like the “phages”, were allegedly killing cells and thereby causing diseases, while at the same time producing new disease poisons and in this way transmitting the diseases. To date, many new or apparently new diseases have been attributed to viruses if their origin is unknown or not acknowledged. This reflex found an apparent confirmation in the discovery of the “bacterial viruses”.

It is important to note that the theories of fight and infection were accepted and highly praised by a majority of the specialists only if and when the countries or regions where they lived were also suffering from war and adversity. In times of peace, other concepts dominated the world of science.[272]

It is very important to note that the theory of infection – starting from Germany – has only been globalized through the third Reich, when the Jewish researchers, most of which had opposed and refuted the politically exploited theories of infection, were removed from their positions.[273]

The existence of phages can be proved rapidly

First step: their presence is confirmed through an effect, namely the transformation of bacteria into phages, and also through an electron micrograph of those phages. The control experiments show that phages do not appear if bacteria do not change or if bacteria randomly start decomposing due to extrinsic sudden annihilation, without forming phages.

Second step: the liquid containing the phages is concentrated and applied on another liquid, which has a high concentration at the bottom of the test tube and a low concentration at the top of the test tube. The test tube with the phages is then powerfully spun (centrifuged) and all the particles gather according to their mass and weight to the place of their own density. The density is the ratio of weight (mass) per unit of volume, expressed as Kg/l or g/mg, respectively. That is why this concentration and purification step for particles with the same density is called density gradient centrifugation.

The layer where many particles of the same density gather becomes “cloudy”, which is called a “band.” This step is being documented, then the particles concentrated, purified and sedimented in a “band” are removed with a syringe needle. The extracted concentrated amount of particles is called an isolate. A fast and simple electron micrograph will confirm the presence of phages in the isolate, which at the same time is an indication for the purity of the isolate, if the micrograph shows no other particles but the phages. The appearance and the diameter of the phages will also be established with the help of this micrograph.

The control experiment performed for this step consists in treating and centrifuging the liquid from bacteria which did not form any phages, where no phages appear at the end of the procedure.

After the step of successfully isolating the phages, the decisive biochemical characterization of the phages follows. The biochemical characterization of their composition is essential for identifying the specific type of phage, since different types of phages often appear to be similar. The isolate obtained through the density gradient centrifugation is now divided in two parts. One part is used to determine the size, type and composition of the nucleic acid; in a separate procedure, the other part is used to determine the amount, size and morphology of the proteins of the phages. Since the 1970s, these tests have been simple standard techniques that are learned by every biology student in their first semesters.

These tests represent the biochemical characterization of the phages. In almost every case, these results have been and are being published in only one publication, since a phage has a very simple structure which is very easy to analyze. The control experiments for these tests use liquid from bacteria which do not form phages and thus cannot present any biochemical proof. The existence of approximately two thousand different types of phages have been scientifically demonstrated this way

The So-Called Pathogenic Viruses

The “bacteriophages,” correctly defined as incomplete mini spores and building blocks of the bacteria, have been scientifically isolated, while the so-called pathogenic viruses have never been observed in humans or animals or in their body fluids and have never been isolated and subsequently biochemically analyzed. To date, none of the researchers involved in virology research seems to have realized this very important point.

The use of electron microscopy and the biochemistry were very slowly returning to normal after 1945 and no one had realized that not one pathogenic virus had ever been isolated in humans or animals; thus, as of 1949 researchers started applying the same idea used for the (bacterio) phages, in order to replicate the human and animal “viruses.” John Franklin Enders, born in 1897 in the family of a rich financier, was active in various fraternities after having finished his studies, then he worked as a real estate agent and studied foreign languages for four years before turning to bacterial virology, which fascinated him. He then simply transferred the ideas and concepts that he learned in this area of research to the supposed pathogenic viruses in humans.

UnScientific Experiments and Interpretations Gave Birth to Virology

With his unscientific experiments and interpretations that he had never confirmed through negative controls, Enders brought the entire “viral” infectious medicine to a dead end. It is important to note at this point that Enders, like many infectious diseases specialists, worked for the U.S. military, which had always been and remains to date a huge victim of the fear of contagions. It was mainly the U.S. military which spread its erroneous belief that besides chemical weapons there were also biological weapons in the form of bacteria and viruses.

In 1949, Enders announced that he had managed to cultivate and grow the alleged polio virus in vitro on various tissues. The American expert opinion believed everything immediately. What Enders did was to add fluids from patients with poliomyelitis to tissue cultures which he claimed to have had sterilized, then he alleged that the cells were dying because of the virus, that the virus was replicating in this way and that a vaccine could be harvested from the respective culture. At that time, summer polio epidemics (polio = flaccid paralysis) were very frequent during summer and they were believed to be caused by the polio virus. A vaccine was to help eradicate the alleged virus. After the polio vaccine was introduced, the symptoms were then re-diagnosed among other things as multiple sclerosis, flaccid acute paralysis, aseptic meningitis etc. and later polio was claimed to have been eradicated. During his experiments, Enders et al. sterilized the tissue cultures in order to exclude the possibility of bacteria killing the cells. What he didn’t take into consideration was that the sterilization and the treatment of the cell culture when preparing it for the alleged infection was exactly what was destroying and killing the cells. Instead, he interpreted the cytopathic effects as the existence and the action of a so-called polio virus, without ever having isolated a single virus and describing its biochemistry. The necessary negative control experiments, which would have shown that the sterilization and the treatment of the cells prior to the “infection” in the test tube was killing the cells, have never been performed. However, for this “performance” Enders received the Nobel prize in 1954.

The Invention of the Polio Virus and ‘YES” the Measles Virus Too!

1954 is also the year in which Enders applied and introduced the same technique in order to allegedly replicate the measles virus. As he had been awarded the Nobel prize for the alleged polio virus the same year, all researchers believed his technique to be scientifically valid. Thus, to date, the entire concept of polio and measles has been based upon this unscientific technique and fraud.

Thus, the polio and measles vaccines do not contain viruses, but particles of dead monkey kidney tissue or human cancerous body cells. To date, no negative control experiments have been done with respect to the so-called polio and measles viruses either, which would have shown that it was the laboratory procedures that lead to the cytopathic effects on the cells.

Additionally, all claims and experiments made by Enders et al. and subsequent researchers lead to the only objective conclusion, that in fact they were observing and analyzing the cellular particles or fragments and the activity thereof in the test tube, misinterpreting these as particles and characteristics of the alleged polio and/or measles viruses.

ALL Viruses from HIV, EBV, CMV, Hepatitis C, West Nile Virus, Ebola, Zika Virus, etc. are ALL Phantom Viruses

Their Existence Has NEVER Been Scientifically Demonstrated!

The following explanations applies to all the so-called (human or animal) “pathogenic viruses”. The six papers provided by Dr. Bardens in the course of the “measles trial” as proof for the existence of the measles virus described in a didactically ideal way the various steps of the chain of misinterpretations up to the belief in the existence of a measles virus.

The first paper was published in 1954 by Enders et al.: “Propagation in tissue cultures of cytopathogenic agents from patients with measles” (Proc Soc Exp Biol Med. 1954 Jun; 86 (2): 277–286).

This publication can be found on the internet, like all the other publications presented at the measles trial. In that experiment, Enders et al. cut down dramatically on the nutrient solution and added cell-destroying antibiotics to the cell culture before introducing the allegedly infected fluid. The subsequent dying of the cells was then misinterpreted as presence and also isolation of the measles virus. No control experiments were performed to exclude the possibility that it was the deprivation of nutrients as well as the antibiotics which led to the cytopathic effects.

Enders’ and his colleagues’ blindness can be explained by the fact that he truly wanted to help people, while the ‘virus hysteria’ was intensifying after the war and during the cold war. It can also be explained by the fact that Enders and many of his colleagues had no idea about medicine or biochemistry and they were competing with the Soviet Union for the development of the first measles vaccine. Such a pressure for success can also explain why Enders and his colleagues ignored their own reservations and cautions expressed in 1954, when they had observed and noted that many cells also died after being treated normally (i.e. without being “infected”), which they thought to have been caused by unknown viruses and other factors.  All these facts and cautions were subsequently disregarded.

The second paper presented by the claimant in the ‘measles trial’ was published in 1959[274] and, for the reasons presented above, the authors concluded that the technique introduced by Enders was not appropriate for the isolation of ANY virus. This rebuttal is not only NOT being discussed by ALL the other researchers, but it is being ignored completely!

The ‘Viral Dogma’ of Pathogenic Viruses is Still Being Promoted Today!

In a third paper[275], the authors photographed typical cellular particles inside the cells and misinterpreted these as measles virus. They did not isolate any virus. For unexplained reasons, they failed to determine and describe the biochemical structure of what they were presenting as a virus in a separate experiment. In the short description of the methods used, one can read that the authors did not apply the standard isolation technique for viruses, i.e. the density gradient centrifugation. They simply centrifuged fragments of dead cells at the bottom of a test tube and then, without describing their biochemical structure, they misinterpreted the cellular debris as viruses.

From the way the experiments were performed, one can only conclude that cellular particles were misinterpreted as viruses. We find the same situation in the fourth[276] and the sixth[277] publication put forward by the claimant as proof of the existence of a measles virus. The fifth publication[278] is a review describing the consensus process as to which nucleic acid molecules from the dead cells would represent the so-called genome of the polio or measles virus. The result is that dozens of research teams work with short pieces of cell-specific molecules, after which -following a given model – they put all the pieces together on paper. However, this jigsaw puzzle made of so many pieces was never scientifically proven to exist as a whole and was never isolated from a virus, for a polio, measles, HIV or Hepatitis C, Ebola or Zika viruses have never been seen, neither in humans nor in a test tube. Referring to this publication, the court-appointed expert stated that it described the gold standard, i.e. the entire virus genome. It is obvious that the expert did not read this paper, whose authors stated that the exact molecular composition and functions of the measles virus genome will have to be the object of further research, which is why they had to rely on other virus models in order to achieve a consensus on the structure and functions of ANY virus genome. The easiest thing for anyone to notice is that in all of these publications, as well as in all other publications on the “measles virus” and other pathogenic viruses, including HIV, EBV, CMV, Ebola and Zika, no control experiments have ever been performed. No researchers used the density gradient centrifugation technique; instead, they only centrifuged cellular debris at the bottom of a test tube. This technique, used to collect all the particles from a fluid, is called pelletizing. From a logical and scientific perspective, it can be said that in all publications on the so-called “pathogenic viruses”, the researchers demonstrated in fact only particles and characteristics of cells. I would also like to point out that the so-called giant viruses[279] , i.e. an enwrapped nucleic acid can be found everywhere in the sea and in basic organisms. Like all bacterial phages, not only are they harmless, but they have beneficial functions. They can be also isolated by using the density gradient centrifugation, which proves their existence (see the graphic above).

I also recommend Prof. Lüdtke’s relevant review (1999).[280] He noted that at the early beginnings of virology, the majority of virologists always concluded that the structures they had mistaken for viruses turned out to be components of the cells and thus, they were only the result of the experiment and not the cause of the changes observed.

After the discovery and characterization of the phages and after introducing the dogma that the nucleic acid was the genome of all cells and viruses, the consensus was born, according to which such viruses must exist in humans and animals as well. In 1992, the dogma stating that the nucleic acid is the genotype of all cells was retracted in the scientific community. The ‘viral dogma’ of pathogenic viruses, however, is still being promoted today to the harm of billions of people. – for what?

The Bottom Line Concerning Phantom Viruses and the Polio Virus

My bottom line still holds the truth that the terrain or internal environment is everything and the germ or so-called virus is NOTHING! The germ or so-called virus can only be a symptom of cellular breakdown due to an imbalance of the delicate alkaline pH balance of the body fluids and NOT the cause of that breakdown. That is why years ago I offered any scientist in the World a finders fee of 5 million US dollars if they could prove the existence of the HIV virus using Koch’s postulates. It has now been over 20 years and I am still waiting even though currently I no longer have the funds to pay the prize due to political assassination! It is unfortunate that a former 5 million US dollar prize offered 20 years ago was not enough money to change the current medical viral dogma that is currently paying out trillions of dollars to guess who?

The Dismantling of the Viral Theory

Robert O Young CPT, MSc, DSc, PhD, Naturopathic Practitioner


There is now over 100 years of documented history and research on the Polio virus and whether or not its treatment by inoculation has been successful in eradicating Polio. I am suggesting in this article and in my lecture that there are significant findings based on historical and past and current research, including my own that the viral theory of Polio and possibly other modern-day diseases, such as Post-Polio Syndrome, Polio Vaccine-Induced Paralysis, Legionnaires, CNS disease, Cancer, HIV/AIDS and now Zika may be caused by acidic chemical poisoning from DDT (dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane) and other related DDT pesticides, acidic vaccinations, and other factors including lifestyle and dietary factors rather than from a lone infectious virus. I will present ten historical graphs outlining the history of Polio, the production of DDT, BHC, Lead, Arsenic, Polio vaccinations and the author’s theory that chemical poisoning, vaccination, and lifestyle and dietary choices are a more likely causes for the symptoms of Polio, neurological diseases, Cancer, HIV/AIDS and now Zika.…/lecture-dubai-annual-conference…/…
