Skull & Crossbones  The Dangers of an Acidic Environment? 

A Place where Cancer thrives 

Believe it or not, a huge one third of Western women get some form of cancer every year. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most prevalent form, affecting over 200,000 women annually in just the  USA alone. Other common cancers in women include colon, ovarian, and lung.

As astonishing as these numbers are, you aren’t helpless when it comes to the prevention and treatment of cancer. Cancer has a weak link —one that does not get much publicity, attention or agreement from the medical profession, but studies show that it’s a huge factor in the disease’s growth and development. What’s this link? Cancer needs an acidic environment in the body to proliferate.

That’s right. Cancer thrives in an overly acidic environment. But when you balance the acid/alkaline levels, the lack of acidity starves cancer cells. An acid environment is caused by eating foods that when digested leave an acid residue, and similarly an alkaline ash is the residue from eating alkaline foods. There are several ways to alkalinize your body and create an inhospitable environment for cancer. I can tell you, specifically, which acidic foods create a "cancer-friendly" environment, and should be avoided, and which foods are the key to maintaining a healthy alkaline environment within the body.

Health problems vanish  

Properly manage the delicate balance between acid and alkaline elements in your body and you’ll find that not just cancer, but many other "health problems" will vanish.

Science has divided foods, like chemicals, into two classes:  

·         Alkaline-forming, or those regarded as safe foods, and...  

·         Acid-forming, which are those regarded as somewhat dangerous foods.  


Digestive juices are required to breakdown food in our stomach. The concept is that when you eat Acid-forming foods (see attached acid-alkaline chart above), you will have an acid-ash residue and your body will be more acidic and prone to acidosis. On the other hand, when you eat Alkaline-forming foods which are rich in organic mineral salts and vitamins, the residue will be alkaline. This digestive process controls the ph levels in the body.  Eliminate the need to think about diets and questions about loosing weight, by eating a ratio of about 80% alkaline foods to 20% acid foods for a balanced food intake.


When you do eat acid-formers, such as meat, cheese, nuts, grains, et cetera, remember to get the highest nutritional benefit from your food to eat plenty of health-promoting alkaline items. So when you eat meat, always combine it with a salad. The iron content of the meat needs the vitamin ‘C’ from the salad to be taken up by the body. There is no reason to exclude these acid-forming foods entirely—but use them judiciously in the correct balance. 


Fruits help produce digestive juices which promote good elimination and their high water content keeps the bowels moist and soft. Protein, starch, sugar and fats leave acid residue. Thus an alkaline diet diminishes acidity of the urine by neutralizing and absorbing normal body acids. It also forms a reserve of bicarbonates, which help to maintain neutrality. Please note that because a fruit is ‘acid’ is no indication that its reaction is the same in the body, because it really may be alkaline.  Honey and raw sugars yield alkaline ash, but on account of the high concentrate of sugar, become acid-formers. Rhubarb with raisins or dates is very good.  


The average person can be safe on an 80% alkaline to 20% acid proportion. Watch yourself. Plan your meals to follow this valuable acid-alkaline chart—the most complete, simple and up-to-date in existence. However, don't make a fetish of this regimen, but observe it in a rational manner. Even if you do eat an all-acid meal, make your next two or three all-alkaline, and don't worry about it.  


Good gland tone means perfect health. Glands feed mainly upon body secretions, and the healthy body must have living mineral and mainly alkaline elements. 


The pH of distilled water is 7, this is neutral. Any solution with a pH below 7 (i.e. pH 1.0 to pH 6.9) is an acid and any solution with a pH above 7 (i.e. pH 7.1 to pH 14) is an alkali. 


Acidic solutions have a pH between 1 and 6.9 = your stomach contains HCl it is pH2. 


Alkaline solutions have a pH between 7.1 and 14. = your small intestine is pH 9. 


Neutral solutions are neither acidic nor alkaline so their pH is around 7. 



1.      Eating too many acid foods, which create an acid ash in your body. This is where proper diet comes in. By eating a diet of 80% alkalizing foods, you’ll eliminate the production of excess acid in your body. 

2.      Increasing your intake of microforms like bacteria, yeasts and fungi create acidic toxins in your body. Not only do they "show-up" in an acidic body, they also pollute and further acidify your body. For this reason, it is important to cleanse & detoxify your body in order to jump start the process of balancing your pH. 

3.      Decreasing your alkaline intake. Being depleted of the necessary alkaline buffers such as minerals that neutralize acids, and ions that help to conduct energy and regulate fluid pH. By increasing your intake of alkaline supplements and alkaline, healthy water you will replenish your body’s capacity to neutralize excess acids.


Lastly, to maintain a perfect internal environment, observe these general health rules. Rest and sleep are alkaline builders. So is exercise, fresh air, pleasure, laughter, conversation, enjoyment, and most importantly loving relationships.  

Steer clear of these Acidifiers: worry, fear, anger, gossip, hatred, envy, complaining, selfishness, and even silence and lastly love-starvation. Here’s health to you!!

“Congratulations” on your book. Thank you for sharing your very own personal walk, wow, what a ‘life-line’ and ‘help’ this book can be to others and will be to me at this very difficult point in my life.  I have known you for a long time, as a friend, a person who I have looked at and thought, boy I wish I could be as confident as Yvonne, she seems to have it all together. I knew of your cancer and your determination to fight it which you did and won. But I saw that you had a nice husband, family, home etc, it never entered my mind that you could have family issues and that you had already been through many of the struggles that I had. Y our book is showing me so much because I can relate to so many of the things that you have shared about your life.  

Fantastic and thank you. - Gail 


Some feedback I had about the talk last night at BG, Kicking Cancer, etc. with Yvonne Chamberlain. I was doing the banking for BG and chatting with the teller about my family member recovering from cancer. The teller said that a customer before me is still grieving very much over her husband recently being taken by cancer. Last night the customer attended the talk here at BG. She got so much help from the talk that she feels that she will begin to deal better with her grief. If a customer can relate this to strangers then I think that Yvonne must do a great job as a speaker. Just thought I would pass this on. - Kym BG
