Alkaline Water and Stopping Cancer

     I have been hearing recently how alkaline water is good in stopping cancer from growing. Could we be onto a cure for cancer finally? I don't know for sure, but this looks hopeful. But like anything that is promising, there will always be an opposing side to it, whether it be a health issue, spiritual issues or some other issue that presses deep into our hearts (and our pocketbooks).
   I have learned that cancer cannot grow in an alkaline environment. If that is true, then how can we create an alkaline environment for us to enjoy? There is one thing we can do, for sure. We can drink alkaline water. You can have a filter installed under your sink or faucet that can turn your water alkaline. I have a friend who uses the leftover water on her gardens, and her yard is beautiful. You can also buy this bottled water at various places. They may sell it at some health food stores. Call the store first and see if they carry it. If enough people request something, they may look into ordering some if they don't carry it already.
   The article on this particular web site explains how alkaline water helps stop cancer from growing. I have also heard that eating greens like spinach and kale can help make your system alkaline. You can put green items such as spinach, kale, and other green vegetables in your smoothies.
  One other thing that is recommended on this web site it to get off sugar. Sugar actually feeds cancer cells and doing away with sugar can help you to become healthy. But be careful about sugar substitutes. Artificial sweeteners are just as bad for you as sugar is, so avoid them. Acceptable sugar replacements are xylitol and Stevia. Make sure that other ingredients aren't added to these products. Honey, maple syrup, and rapadura are ok in moderation, but a good word of advice is to get off soda pop, whether it is sugar free or not. Soda has a lot of calories anyway, plus a list of other undesirable ingredients that aren't helpful to our health.
   One other thing I have heard, but don't have enough information yet, is that fresh orange juice actually becomes alkaline when we drink it. This might be something good to research.
