Baking soda can kill cancer cells (Dr Simoncini)
Dr Tullio Simoncini says yes "baking soda can kill cancer cells"
Dr Simoncini was a brilliant doctor, a trained surgeon, oncologist, endocrinologist, and diabetologist, with a University degree in philosophy.
Cancer cell growth is initiated by fermentation, triggered by the absence of oxygen at the cellular level… in an acidic body. Oxygen cannot stick to your blood cells if your blood is acid. While oxygen can neutralize acid, the acid prevents oxygen from accessing the tissues in need of it.
Plus, if you're acidic, carbon dioxide can't move out, so it builds up in your tissues, leading to cell death.
Alkaline solutions are the opposite — they provide essential oxygen to your tissues.
That's the basis of Dr. Simoncini's sodium bicarbonate protocol… otherwise known as baking soda.
Baking Soda Kills Like Cyanide
Sodium bicarbonate shocks your cancer cells with massive amounts of oxygen. It's like cyanide attacking them. Tumors die when exposed to so much oxygen.
Sodium bicarbonate shrinks cancer masses and does it fast — in about 4-5 days for a two to four centimeter mass. In fact, some patients reportedly experience complete remission within 5 days.
Sodium bicarbonate can be administered three ways: by mouth, with an aerosol, or intravenously.
The more hard-to-reach cancers are treated by positioning catheters directly into the artery that nourishes the tumor, allowing high doses of sodium bicarbonate to enter the deepest recesses of the organism. Today it's even possible to reach cerebral masses without surgical intervention, in a completely painless way.
Advocates say most tumors can be treated effectively with baking soda therapy — except for bone cancer, due to the lack of blood flow to the bones.
A 2009 study showed sodium bicarbonate increases the pH of tumors, and reduces metastases and lymph node involvement (in breast cancer).
The therapy is said to be extremely effective, painless, has no side effects, and is very low risk. With catheterization, there's a small risk of infection.
It's also cheap, at least in terms of the equipment and materials required. Catheters cost a bit more, but oral treatment costs mere pennies per day.
Now for the downside: Application via catheter, applied directly to the tumor, can be provided only by a mainstream doctor. Most won't be willing to provide such a treatment. Also, full dosages cannot be administered to those with severe heart, kidney, and liver problems.
Dr Simoncini was disbarred from the Italian Medical Board in 2006 for unconventional practicing methods.
He refused to treat his patients with chemotherapy but encourage them to use his baking soda treatment instead.
Mice given baking soda exhibit fewer metastases and survive longer
INVESTIGATION MECHANISMS OF ALKINIZATION FOR REDUCING PRIMARY BREAST TUMOR INVASION
EXRACT: by Ian F. Robey and Lance A. Nesbit
The extracellular pH (pHe) of many solid tumors is acidic as a result of glycolytic metabolism and poor perfusion. Acidity promotes invasion and enhances metastatic potential. Tumor acidity can be buffered by systemic administration of an alkaline agent such as sodium bicarbonate. Tumor-bearing mice maintained on sodium bicarbonate drinking water exhibit fewer metastases and survive longer than untreated controls. We predict this effect is due to inhibition of tumor invasion. Reducing tumor invasion should result in fewer circulating tumor cells (CTCs). We report that bicarbonate-treated MDA-MB-231 tumor-bearing mice exhibited significantly lower numbers of CTCs than untreated mice (P < 0.01). Tumor pHe buffering may reduce optimal conditions for enzymes involved in tumor invasion such as cathepsins and matrix metalloproteases (MMPs). To address this, we tested the effect of transient alkalinization on cathepsin and MMP activity using enzyme activatable fluorescence agents in mice bearing MDA-MB-231 mammary xenografts. Transient alkalinization significantly reduced the fluorescent signal of protease-specific activatable agents in vivo (P ≤ 0.003). Alkalinization, however, did not affect expression of carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX). The findings suggest a possible mechanism in a live model system for breast cancer where systemic alkalinization slows the rate of invasion.

Canadian Researchers find Cancer Cure
Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects.
This drug doesn't require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies.
Canadian scientists tested this dichloroacetate (DCA) on human's cells; it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells and left the healthy cells alone. It was tested on Rats inflicted with severe tumors; their cells shrank when they were fed with water supplemented with DCA. The drug is widely available and the technique is easy to use, why the major drug companies are not involved? Or the Media interested in this find?
In human bodies there is a natural cancer fighting human cell, the mitochondria, but they need to be triggered to be effective. Scientists used to think that these mitochondria cells were damaged and thus ineffective against cancer. So they used to focus on glycolysis, which is less effective in curing cancer and more wasteful. The drug manufacturers focused on this glycolysis method to fight cancer. This DCA on the other hand doesn't rely on glycolysis instead on mitochondria; it triggers the mitochondria which in turn fights the cancer cells.
The side effect of this is it also reactivates a process called apoptosis. You see, mitochondria contain an all-too-important self-destruct button that can't be pressed in cancer cells. Without it, tumors grow larger as cells refuse to be extinguished. Fully functioning mitochondria, thanks to DCA, can once again die.
With glycolysis turned off, the body produces less lactic acid, so the bad tissue around cancer cells doesn't break down and seed new tumors.
Pharmaceutical companies are not investing in this research because DCA method cannot be patented, without a patent they can't make money, like they are doing now with their AIDS Patent. Since the pharmaceutical companies won't develop this, the article says other independent laboratories should start producing this drug and do more research to confirm all the above findings and produce drugs. All the groundwork can be done in collaboration with the Universities, who will be glad to assist in such research and can develop an effective drug for curing cancer.

Canadian Cancer Society’s perspective on DCA
Canadian Cancer Society 31 October 2013
Dichloroacetate (DCA) is sometimes mentioned in media and other sources as a potential cure for cancer. While early studies of DCA have shown some interesting results, it has yet to be proven as a safe and effective cancer treatment in humans.
The Canadian Cancer Society has concerns about Canadians with cancer seeking DCA because we don’t know enough about its risks and benefits. In the absence of adequate and extensive clinical evidence, the Society does not advise cancer patients to use DCA, unless they are part of a clinical trial. DCA is not an approved cancer treatment in Canada or anywhere else in the world.
