Some of you will be looking at this site for some answers to the big cancer question. I have searched for years for this very thing. This is what I have found so far and the information is looking good for green smoothies:
The following quotes can also be found in my Health pages in the page on Cancer, acidity and the bicarbonate of soda connection.
First let us look at the cancer situation:
It has been suggested that cancer (or Fungi) cells are actually normal cells that have had to de-evolve into a lower functioning organism in order to survive the stress factors imposed by the poor oxygen and acidic environment. If the environment were healthy then the cells would be healthy too. Here we see that the body has not caught some disease, more that the cells have undergone a de-evolutionary transformation into cancer cells as a survival strategy.
According to Nobel prize winner 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg,
“Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an access of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.”
In his work The Metabolism of Tumors he demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: Acidosis and Hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Lack of oxygen and acidosis are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other.
“All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception.” – Dr. Otto Warburg
“Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.” “Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.” — Dr. Otto H. Warburg in Lecture 
Cancer patients have been found to have an acidic blood PH level.
If we imagine a rubbed balloon that cannot stick to the wall in wet weather, this represents oxygen that cannot fix onto a blood cell if the blood becomes too acidic.
Deep breathing and oxygenating the system will only help so far. The limited capacity for holding oxygen that these acidic cells have, means that any oxygen that is picked up is quickly absorbed by oxygen starved cells around it. The oxygen fails to penetrate the deeper parts of the body where it is required the most.
So the picture that has been painted so far is that cancer is a devolved cell, arising due to the acidic conditions within the cell, promoted due to poor oxygen.
Enter the green smoothie:
- Alkalising, alkalising, alkalising.
- You simply drink the smoothie and the body will become more alkaline.
- Drink plenty of it and you will become more alkaline
- Start replacing acidic foods such as meat and dairy with your green smoothies and you will become more alkaline.
- In addition to this greens will help our bodies to generate red blood cells and so we can transport more oxygen, improving our blood flow and cardiovascular functions.
- From this we can expect to feel more invigorated and more energised.
- green leafy smoothies contain chlorophyll which it appears is pretty hard for the body to absorb. Instead it acts as a terrific cleanser, and as such blocks cancer promoting
heme-induced free radicals

Of course we don’t have to have cancer to take advantage of such extraordinary health benefits.
