Low Cholesterol May Raise The Risk For Stomach Cancer

Low Cholesterol May Raise The Risk of a Cancerous Stomach.


Because cholesterol is a major buffer of dietary and metabolic acids that can cause the breakdown of cells and tissues leading to a cancerous state.

It is the stomach that produces the body's number one acid buffer - sodium bicarbonate.

When the body needs more sodium bicarbonate to buffer dietary and metabolic acid there is an equal amount of hydrochloric acid that is secreted into the stomach.
The newly created sodium bicarbonate by the stomach is either used to buffer the acids of food in the stomach or taken up into the blood stream to buffer metabolic acids when cholesterol is not present.

Bottom line, it is the body's increased need for cholesterol to buffer acids in the extracellular fluids. When cholesterol is not present to buffer dietary or metabolic acids then the stomach kicks in and starts producing sodium bicarbonate.
This process leaves toxic hydrochloric
acid in the gastric pits of the stomach that can destroy stomach cells leading to ulcerations and a cancerous stomach.

Japanese researchers are suggesting that people with very low cholesterol levels seem to be at increased risk of developing stomach cancer. This is because of the body's increased need for sodium bicarbonate and the residues of hydrochloric acid that is left to ferment the stomach leading to a cancerous stomach.

Some studies have linked low cholesterol levels to higher death rates from cancer in general, Dr. Kouichi Asano, of Kyushu University, Fukuoka, and colleagues explain in the International Journal of Cancer.
"With respect to gastric cancer, a limited number of studies suggest this inverse association, while others do not."

The researcher looked into this in a study involving some 2,600 residents of Hisayama, Japan, who were followed for 14 years.

Gastric cancers developed in 97 subjects. After accounting for age and gender, stomach cancer rates rose significantly with descending cholesterol level.
For example, among subjects with the highest cholesterol levels, the gastric cancer rate was the equivalent of 2.1 cases per 1000 persons per year; among those with the lowest cholesterol, the rate was 3.9 per 1000 person-years.

"Our data suggest that patients with low serum cholesterol should consider regular gastro-intestinal examination for the prevention of gastric cancer,"
the investigators conclude.

To prevent a cancerous condition, including stomach cancer one needs to include liberal amounts of sodium chloride (salt) and medium and long chain fats.

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, a research scientist from the pH Miracle Living Center, states, "the stomach is an organ of contribution not an organ of digestion. Its main contribution to the health and well-being of the body is to produce alkaline salts of sodium and potassium bicarbonate.
The purpose of the stomach in producing these alkaline salts is to buffer the acids of diet and metabolism for maintaining the alkaline design of the body fluids and thus protecting the alkaline integrity of the cells."

"To prevent and/or reverse a cancerous condition one must incorporate liberal amounts of sodium and potassium bicarbonate and good healthy fats."
