Is Cancer a Response to a Fungal Infection?

Baking Soda with Question Mark Dr. Tullio Simoncini proposes that cancer is a response to the fungal infection, candida, which is responsible for the common yeast infections women suffer, especially after taking antibiotics, and thrush, best known as a mouth infection causing a pure white coating on the tongue. He noted that tumours are nearly all white, the color of most fungus, and that candida, a common fungal infection, requires an acidic environment. From there, he concluded that cancer can be destroyed with the application of sodium bicarbonate—humble baking soda.

He claims to be able to cure most cancers by applying sodium bicarbonate to the tumour. There's a clear logic that says this may be true. If diagnosed with cancer, the strongest treatment, application via catheter applied directly to the tumour, can be provided only by a mainstream doctor, someone who is unlikely to be willing to provide such a treatment. However, Dr. Simoncini and others believe that sodium bicarbonate taken orally can also help treat cancer.

Mainstream medicine and Big Pharma, which are dependent on expensive drugs and treatments, have little interest in finding out if a fungus is the cause of cancer and if baking soda can treat it. At this point, only those who apply the treatment know for sure. Of course, funding for such research is in very short supply, so researchers aren't rushing to do studies—not that medical journals would rush to publish articles about it. Therefore, it's up to the alternative treatment world to try to determine whether it makes sense.

The logic is clear. Candida is a common infection that can easily become systemic. It thrives in an acidic environment and quickly dies in an alkaline one. Dr. Simoncini, among others, has noted that candida is nearly always found in conjunction with cancer. Medical research has documented that the immediate environment of tumours is acidic. Dr. Simoncini, who is an oncologist, reasoned that a tumour is the body's attempt to sequester and remove candida infections.

He pictures it like this: Candida spreads throughout the body, with particular focus on connective tissues in organs. The body responds by attempting to sequester the fungus, especially when it invades critical spaces deep inside organs.The fungus spreads—metastasizes—and new tumours develop as the body continues to respond to the invasion. The more this happens, the more the affected person becomes weak and exhausted. Eventually, the result is severe debilitation and death by "cancer".

Antifungal drugs are not a solution. Their effectiveness has always been limited, but worse, even that is being lost to drug-resistant fungus. Clearly, another solution needs to be found. Fortunately, in terms of prevention, there are excellent techniques.
