1.0 out of 5 stars A terrible, terrible book., 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How To Kill Cancer Cells (Kindle Edition)
I'm about 20% through this book so far, and it really is horrendous.

The author repeats the same points again and again, sometimes she'll even repeat the same sentence with different words. We get it, you believe an alkaline diet is the way to go.

She claims that since tomatoes and oranges are very acidic, they make your body a more acidic place. This is complete nonsense, after these foods are broken down they make the body more alkaline. I really don't know what she's doing writing a book about this when she obviously hasn't the slightest grasp of any of it.

She just throws in that you shouldn't eat garlic every day because it's "quite dangerous", with no explanation or rationale whatsoever for saying that but it's supposedly an example of how "moderation" is a good thing. .

It's stupid and wrong. She obviously mustn't have heard that WHO advocates taking garlic once a day to prevent cancer.

There's lots of filler figures and stuff in an already small book. It's so terrible that I really can't believe anyone wrote such a book and is actually charging for it, I'm going to try to get my money back.

Sorry but you are wrong and the author is totally correct. People with acid reflux for example, are advised to avoid acid-causing foods such as tomatoes, oranges and beetroot etc, as these do indeed create acidity in the body (which is often expressed as acid reflux, and/or red, itchy blotchy skin etc). Research has also shown that cancer tends to thrive in an acidic environment, and this is why acid-creating food and drink (alcohol, coffee etc) are best avoided or reduced.

I used to have substantial acid reflux until I changed my diet to more natural/alkaline-forming foods, in fact I was diagnosed with GERD for a while. I was advised to avoid certain foods, I don't remember being ever told to avoid acidy foods, only acid-forming ones. In truth once my dentist offhandedly mentioned something about fruit drinks causing acid reflux also, however this is not a widely established view in mainstream medicine. I have found that strongly acid foods that are strongly alkaline-forming like oranges and tomatoes help my reflux. In fact bananas cause more acid reflux than them. I also eat large amounts of vitamin c which is extremely acidic but alkaline-forming in the body. You can see from home urine tests that they always come out alkaline if you eat these foods and always come out acid when eating a lot of meat or processed foods. Oranges and tomatoes are perfectly natural foods, there is absolutely no reason why they could be bad for you. No wonder alkaline vs acid diets get a bad reputation when some people are claiming things like that.

Your review is unhelpful because it's inaccurate, sarcastic and makes general unsupported negative statements.. The author does not say that tomatoes and oranges are naturally very acidic. She says that these days they are mostly harvested for transportation before they are ripe and are therefore acidic, and that they are fine when actually ripe. If you think it best to follow everything the WHO says, good luck. Try to find something that cures irritability and bad temperedness. At least do us the honour of reading more than 20% of the book before reviewing it. This book is by far the most complete and specific presentation of how to get the body pH up to balance that of the blood pH (7.4) and of the benefits of doing so. Your review says more about you than it does about the book.
