Damn.com | Who discovered cancer? His name was Doctor Otto Heinrich Warburg.
He was a medical doctor as well as a German Physiologist, but his big claim to fame was being the guy who did research to find out what caused cancer. His dad was actually a famous physicist, Emil Warburg. Otto served as an officer in the First World War and was awarded the Iron Cross for acts of bravery. He didn’t serve in the Second World War, since his family was Jewish.
But Hitler let Otto continue his cancer research. He had won the Nobel Prize in 1931, and would be a 47-time nominee for the award in the years to follow!
There is another side to Otto’s research that oddly, no one seems to talk about. While he is known as finding the cause of cancer, he also had claimed to find the cure. His book was even titled: “Cancer: Its Cause and Its Cure.”
So while we know about his groundbreaking cancer research into the cause, why haven’t we heard about his work in regards to the cure?
Well, his main theory regarding a cure had to do with alkaline environments. He found that cancer cells cannot thrive nor exist in alkaline environments and the more harmful, acidic things you put in your body, the more pleasing environment you have created for cancer to flourish.
“Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.”
“All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception. “Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”
Warburg said that oxygen deficiency is almost always the root cause of cancer. An acidic state will be formed in the human body with a lack of oxygen, thus allowing cancer to thrive. The key then, is oxygen. Having enough oxygen in your cells. This can be as simply as getting out and breathing in fresh air and as complex as having oxygen treatments and oxygen therapy performed to get an immediate boost of oxygen to the body.
As usual it seems that going back to the basics and listening to the straightforward, simple guidelines to living healthy is the key to prevent diseases and cancers from forming in our bodies.
