June 1 ( - Minerals are important to maintain one's health. Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes, said each disease is associated with certain mineral deficiencies.

One vital function of minerals is to keep an alkaline body pH. When one does not feel good and when one knows something is wrong, one sees a doctor. However, the doctor does not know there could be something wrong with the person's body pH.

Often times, when you feel sick, your pH is too low or strongly acidic. One should have a slightly alkaline pH, anywhere between 7.1 and 7.4 roughly. PH 7 is neutral and below 7 is acidic. A normal alkaline pH keeps all cells functioning properly.

A low acidic body pH is one of the most common causes for diseases such as cancer. 85 percent of cancer patients are found to have a low pH between 5 and 6. At a normal pH level, cancer cells cannot grow. This is why some cancer patients control their cancer after they change their lifestyle, including diet.

How does one maintain a normal pH?

You need to have a balanced diet to keep your body pH alkaline. Some foods, known as alkaline food (such as tea and seaweed), tend to generate an alkaline pH while others, known as acid food (such as protein food), tend to make an acidic pH. Drinking water with an alkaline pH is also good for your health.

With this information, you know how to prevent many diseases. Many diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, which are seen commonly in affluent countries, may be related to their high-fat and/or high-protein diet.

These diseases are less common in developing countries where plant food is more common than protein or food derived from animals such as beef or milk. High protein intake shifts the body pH toward acidic, which is the base for many diseases.

A news story reported recently states there are more than 20 people over the age of 100 in a small Chinese town with 80,000, which is rarely found elsewhere. The rate is high. Researchers found the underground water the residents use to cook food is so alkaline that it has a strange odor. Alkaline water helps keep the body pH alkaline.

Remember, you may get the majority of diseases under control by using a diet that tends to make an alkaline body pH. This is significant to many patients. Doctors use highly harmful treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy because they want to kill each and every cancer cell. However, these treatments can cause new cancerous cells.

As a matter of fact, you don't have to kill all cancer cells to be healthy. There also is no possible way to kill all of the cells.

For example, a patient with nose cancer received surgery, but did not take any further treatment. He followed a healthy diet. 28 years later, he died from another cause. Biopsies revealed there were a lot of cancer cells around the area where the tumor was removed. But the new cancer cells cannot grow into any clinically significant cancerous mass, known as cancer. The patient lived so long peacefully with cancer cells (not cancer) probably because he maintained an alkaline body pH.
