Evidence of Caustic Causation of Cancer

“There is a principle which is a against ALL INFORMATION, Which is proof against ALL ARGUMENTS.

And which cannot fail to keep man in EVERLASTING IGNORANCE.


A LONG series of tests have been carried out on patients who have biopsy proven cancer growths of various body localizations and of various cellular types.

In all these tests the same conditions have invariably been found.

It must be realized that the continuity of cancer cell proliferation in any body localization requires the continuance of the cause of which the growth is the manifested effect. As the only avenue of ingress to the cancer site of the cause is, in the large majority of cases, the blood and tissue fluids, the continuity of action of the cause determines the fact that this cause must be in the blood and tissue fluids or arise from something in these fluids when deposited at the site of the cancer growth.

That is to say the cause or source of the cause of cancer cell evolution and proliferation is in these fluids. Also it must be understood that this source of the cancer cause or the cause itself can only be present in the blood of cancer victims under abnormal circumstances, otherwise if present under normal circumstances the whole of mankind would be in danger of cancer destruction.

It has been found after thorough tests carried out on a long series of cases that there is a consistent abnormality in the urine and also in the blood of all cases, without exception. Moreover these consistent urine and blood abnormalities correspond in degree to the clinical cancer states. I wish to recall the fact that urinary excretion is one of the principal avenues through which the body endeavours to remove abnormal constituents of the blood, whose retention must destroy the whole blood chemistry and so destroy life. The kidney excretion is therefore an index of the blood condition. I stress this well known fact so that the invariable urinary state of cancer subjects found in my long series of investigations may receive its proper consideration.

The urinary examination of cancer cases has invariably shown a complete absence of phosphates and chlorides and the invariable presence of the carbonates. This can have only one interpretation, namely the presence in excess of the carbonates in the blood and tissue fluids. When it is realized that mineral salts are present in the blood and tissue fluids as chlorides, phosphates and carbonates a true indication can be drawn of what the cancer urinary results portray namely there are excessive carbonates in the blood and tissue fluids and deficiency of chlorides and phosphates. But this conclusion has far greater significance when known together with the blood conditions which have also invariably been found with cancer:

The blood conditions are:

(1) marked excess of carbonates.

(2) a corresponding marked deficiency of phosphates and chlorides.

(3) deficient red cell oxyhaemoglobin.

The inference drawn from the blood and urine tests is that there is marked deficiency of free chloride and phosphorus in the blood and tissue fluids for combination as acid radicals, ‘with the alkaline mineral salts absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. To prevent a fatal alkalosis, the alkaline mineral salts thus absorbed combine with the free CO2, of the blood and tissue fluids to form the excessive carbonates found in cancer cases. The prolonged and continuous ingestion and absorption of alkaline salts over and above the Provision of the free acid radicals of chlorine and phosphorus for combination, must sooner or later end in the condition that further ingestion of alkaline salts can only combine with the free CO2. Moreover the supply of free plasma CO2, for this purpose must result in deficient oxyhaemoglobin in the red corpuscles.

This inference founded on definite proven facts in connection with cancer cases their blood and urinary analyses pointed conclusively to the mineral salts and their metabolism as the basic causation of cancer.

First and foremost the urinary and blood analyses proved beyond refutation that

(1) There is excess of blood and urinary carbonates.

2) There is deficiency of blood phosphates and chlorides and complete absence of urinary phosphates and chlorides.

The normal metabolism of mineral salts, ingested and inhaled was then considered. Apart from the biochemical salts normally present in food, the only source of ingress to the body of chemical mineral salts is through the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts in the food and water ingested and the air inhaled.

Since cancer has afflicted mankind from time immemorial and the incidence of cancer has undoubtedly increased in modern civilization, there can be no doubt that although the incidence has increased, the cause of cancer cannot be wholly associated with conditions of modern life. That is to say the cause of cancer is age old but its presence is greatly increased under modem conditions of living.

Forced to the conclusion by the above mentioned blood and urinary analysis that cancer causation is Associated with mineral salt metabolism, this and mineral salt ingestion by mankind has been investigated.

Apart from biochemical salts ingested as part of the chemistry of food materials, mankind has added to these foods from time immemorial, common salt or chemical sodium chloride. Moreover, with modern civilization this sodium salt ingestion has been added to by other mineral salts such as sodium bicarbonate, sodium sulphate in the preparation and preservation of food materials and as the tons of laxative mineral salts, used in all civilized communities.

The question now to be considered is what happens to these chemical mineral salts when ingested and also what happens to the mineral salt fumes which are inhaled in tobacco smoking?.

We will consider sodium bicarbonate as an index of all the mineral salts because any man and woman who has taken bicarbonate of soda, in the many medicinal products which it enters into or unadulterated has had experience of the direct result.

Sodium bicarbonate in the stomach becomes hydrolyzed to a gas, carbon dioxide and caustic soda. This caustic salt must rapidly be neutralized by combination with a free acid radical such as chlorine or phosphorus. If these are not available in the contents of the gastrointestinal tract, the caustic must be excreted, deposited or absorbed. If deposited, the body protects itself by secretion from the tissue fluids of serum containing the free acid radicals therein contained. There can only be one purpose for these free acid radicals and that is this protective combination with caustic salts. When, however, through prolonged excessive sodium salts ingestion, as is the habit in modern civilization, there is present the caustic mineral salt without sufficient free acid radicals of chlorine and phosphorus for protective combination, there must be present another protective acid radical or the tissue would rapidly be destroyed by the continuous ingestion of the chemical salts. Under these circumstances the protective agent is the free carbon dioxide of the blood and tissue fluids. With this the caustic combines to form the mineral carbonates. By excretion the mineral salts are removed from the body that is the mineral chlorides, phosphates and carbonates are replaced from the gastrointestinal tract so that blood isotonicity remains constant, but with deficient free chlorine and phosphorus brought about by prolonged excessive chemical mineral salt ingestion and inhalation, the mineral chlorides and phosphates of the tissue and blood fluids become deficient and isotonicity is maintained by an excess of the carbonates. Then the chlorides and phosphates being deficient are not excreted and the only mineral salts excreted are those of the carbonates.

This is exactly what is found to occur in cancer patients.

The basic necessity required to bring about this condition of the blood and tissue fluid chemistry is an excessive intake of mineral salts with deficiency of supply of free chlorine and phosphorus for protective chemical combinations.

After a complete survey of the dietary of mankind, more especially that of man under civilized modern conditions it is found that the vast proportion of all food stuffs is adulterated in preservation, cooking or before ingestion by one or other of the salts of sodium. No other mineral salt enters to any degree into the dietary of mankind, and moreover sodium as common salt has entered into the adulterated dietary of mankind from time immemorial. Salt or sodium chloride is necessary for human life since it is the chief source of chloride for the production of hydrochloric acid in gastric digestion. But the habits of all civilized mankind, of all countries, soon reveal the fact that the majority do not know the taste of a large part of the food materials ingested, but only that of the sodium chloride, with which they are impregnated, in the process of manufacture or as a preface to ingestion. When this excessive sodium in take, due to its atomic weight, replaces calcium, magnesium and potassium from the tissues and tissue fluids, intestinal excretion becomes deficient and the common complaint of civilization deficient intestinal excretion brings about the further ingestion of untold Quantities of sodium and other mineral salts as mineral laxatives. These sources of mineral supply to the human body which have become the routine habits of mankind, which habits have become greatly accentuated under civilized condition of food preservation and preparation, can have only one result namely a deficiency of chlorine and phosphorus for protective combination with the sodium hydrate and product of the hydrolysis of them all.

Then the combination with the free carbon dioxide results in excessive blood and tissue fluid carbonates and deficient red corpuscle oxyhaemoglobin with deficient tissue oxidation, as the oxygen is required in association with carbon of tissue metabolism for,combination with the continued presence of the caustic mineral salts as the only available protective mechanism to the body.

It has been shown by. blood and urine analysis of cancer subjects that exactly the same conditions are present in the blood and tissue fluids as those which must inevitably follow from the age old habit, a habit greatly accentuated in modern civilization, of ingesting excessive quantities of mineral salts mainly sodium salts. That the same conditions would result if men took excessive quantities of other chemical mineral salts such as those of calcium, potassium. and magnesium is without doubt, but a study of what man ingests in modern days as well as in centuries of the past, throughout which cancer has been a destroyer of humanity, shows conclusively that the sodium habit is that which must inevitably bring about the conditions found to be invariably present in cancer victims. But although sodium carbonate in excess in the blood must result from this continued sodium habit and is found in cancer victims, sodium carbonate will not give rise to the evolution of the cancer cell and its proliferation or to the burning pain and other signs and symptoms of cancer growth pathology.

When, however, by venous or lymph stasis carbonate is deposited in the body tissues from the carbonate excess present in the blood and tissue fluids, it undergoes hydrolysis and caustic soda is the result. Caustic soda is deposited without the local protection of the free acid radicals of chlorine and phosphorus and carbon dioxide, and as the burning mineral salt it remains at the local site of its deposition, to give rise to tissue destruction or ulceration or to tissue inflammation or fibrosis. These mechanical conditions produce further lymph stasis and further caustic formation from the carbonates circulating constantly in the blood and tissue fluids and provided constantly to these fluids by the continuance of the sodium habit.

The body is then faced with the continuous local deposition of a caustic mineral salt without any means of preservation against the burning destructive results. Only by the evolution of a new protective mechanism can rapid destruction be prevented and this necessity gives rise to the evolution and proliferation of the cancer cell whose metabolism by glycolysis from glucose of lactic acid, with the protective combination of this lactic acid with the caustic mineral salt to produce the innocuous mineral lactate, constitutes the body’s endeavour to prevent rapid burning destruction which is inevitable if the constant production of the caustic mineral salt is permitted to go on completely unchecked.

This newly evolved cellular proliferation is therefore a physiological and not a pathological new growth and attempts t6 fulfil a physiological purpose under the abnormal conditions existing in the human bodies in which it is present. Being physiological with a physiological purpose, the cancer cells conform to the laws which govern all the specialized cells with their specialized physiological purposes which go to form the human machine. These cancer cells, evolved for a purpose, at the dictates of a cause, can only remain while that cause remains, and undergo physiological atrophy and disappearance only when that cause is removed. Moreover, these, cancer cells must continue to proliferate while ever the cause which has brought about their evolution continues to increase and necessitate ever increasing degrees of cancer cell function or purpose. While man afflicted with a cancer growth continues the sodium habit which has brought about the cancer growth, the cancer growth must persist and continue growing.

It can be fully understood from this outline of the conception put forward as to the cause of cancer that it fulfils all the facts known in regard to cancer evolution, cancer cell proliferation and cancer growth. Moreover, this conception is confirmed by scientific tests performed on the blood of cancer patients.

Many skilled research workers have proved that cancer cell metabolism produces lactic acid by the glycosis of glucose. This conception of cancer causation in which the cause is a caustic mineral, salt produced in the tissues of the cancer victim by the age old sodium habit indulged in by mankind from time immemorial shows definitely the reason for the production of the lactic acid by the metabolism of the cancer cells, the necessity for this metabolism and the necessity for the evolution of the cancer cells so that this lactic acid production can be brought about namely that the whole process of cancer cell evolution and metabolism is a protective one whereby the body seeks to guard itself against the continuous local production in some of its,tissues of the burning caustic mineral salts namely the caustic salt of sodium.

Having traced the tragedy which must inevitably result from the age old human sodium habit from the ingestion of sodium salts in excess to the evolution and proliferation of the cancer cells with their protective metabolism as nature’s final attempt at salvation against the burning results of this habit, and corroborated the conclusions which have been drawn from a long series of blood and urinary analyses, there still remain certain salient questions to be answered.

(1) Why does cancer growth principally affect certain localizations in the human body?

(2) Why do certain proven cancer cases survive after surgical and, radiation ablations of the existing cancer growth?

3. What effect has deep X-ray radiation on the cancer cells?

4. What constitutional conditions accompany the localized presence in the body of a cancer growth?

5. Is cancer hereditary?

6. What causes mortality when a cancer growth is present?

7. What constitutional and other conditions precede the evolution and proliferation of the cancer cells, as a result of the gradual chemical change in the blood and tissue fluids, before these make necessary the cancer cell evolution?

8. Cancer prevention.

9. Cancer cure Is cancer curable?.
