Alkaline Vegan Diet Helped Father Beat Cancer: ‘I Was Told I Had Up To 12 Months To Live’


1 Minutes Read

This article has been retracted by Plant Based News.

PBN published a story about a man’s personal account on how he claims to have overcome cancer by switching to an alkaline vegan diet, on May 16 2021.

We reported how the man said he came across a doctor’s claims that cancer could not survive in an oxygenated, alkaline, cellular environment.

Further research indicates that eating an alkaline diet can not effectively treat cancer. Moreover, according to Cancer Research UK, ‘there is no good evidence to prove that diet and manipulate whole body pH, or that it has an impact on cancer’.

As a result, we have removed the article from our website.
