In an age where cancer rates are rising frighteningly fast, the need for alternative treatments is becoming ever more pressing. Fortunately, many doctors are paving the way, Dr. Marty Pagel, PhD, for instance, from the University of Arizona Cancer Center, is testing the effects of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) on breast cancer patients with a $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to perform the study.
It’s important to note that any treatment for cancer will react differently in various patients and also to various types of cancers. Traditional methods can work well on some cancers and terribly on others, and the same can be said for natural cures. On top of this fact, the state of the human body receiving the treatment also matters. Do they have access to clean organic food? Clean water? Do they exercise regularly and engage in other self-care and stress management techniques? Do they believe and feel they can overcome their disease? These are all important factors to take into consideration.
A number of studies in the past have shown interesting in vivo results with the use of sodium bi-carbonate on cancerous tumours. While the research is not yet conclusive, early results are promising, already showing some powerful effects of tumour metastasis. This of course encourages funding for further research.
Dr. Robert J. Gillies and his colleagues have already demonstrated the effectiveness of baking soda in alkalinizing the area around tumours in mice. The same researchers found that bicarbonate increases tumour pH and also inhibits spontaneous metastases in mice with breast cancer. 
Lemon has shown to contain anti-carcinogenic properties, as it contains limonoides, which are phytochemicals found in a number of citrus fruits.  Lemon also has been shown to have strong anti-microbial effects, which have been tested in research exploring the idea that cancer is very much like a fungus within the body.  When treating cancer as a fungus, various methods can be used, and some have found that lemon and bicarbonate can help fight it.
Lemons are also effective in helping the body detoxify. They are rich in vitamin C and help your body neutralize cell-damaging free radicals. Limone, a substance found in lemons, also helps to stimulate lymph flow, which is important in removing carcinogens from the body. A weak or under-performing lymph system is a big part of disease promotion.
Lemon is also used to help balance Ph. They are taken together because lemon is believed to be one of the safest ways to introduce high alkaline substances into the system. These methods of treatment are able to approach carcinogenic cells and destroy them without harming healthy cells. This is another key factor, as chemotherapy destroys all cells, including the healthy ones.
Together, lemon and baking soda help to fight cancerous cells or diseases in the body while helping to increase the body’s ability to rid itself of what may be causing the diseases in the first place. Having lemon as a part of your diet is certainly healthy and taking this combination as a detox can also be helpful even if you don’t have an illness.
One method I have found for introducing this into your body as a drink is to mix 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda into 250ml of water with about half of a lemon. Please check into more recipes that might work for you. I have personally taken this mixture when experiencing stomach issues or feeling like I might be getting sick and seen great success each time. Of course, always do your own research before trying alternative therapies and check with a health professional if you have concerns.
2. Researchers examined human DNA from a variety of tissues and organs to identify and quantify aflatoxin DNA-adducts. Such adducts are considered to be proof of the mycotoxin’s presence in a particular tissue. Their finding? “Tumor tissues had higher aflatoxin-adduct levels than did normal tissue from the same individual.”
