So the question I asked yesterday was this . . . What do we "really" know about "skin cancer"???
Well . . . "skin cancer" is the most common cancer in the United States . . . and in fact . . . worldwide . . . with 1 in 5 Americans developing "skin cancer" by the age of 70.
So how exactly does the sun . . . damage the DNA of "skin" cells . . . so they become cancerous???
Well . . . "excessive" exposure to the sun . . . damages the skin's "acid mantle" . . . which allows the skin to be more prone to skin disorders like pigmentation, dullness, acne and cancer.
Okay . . . so let's break it down . . . to better understand . . .
The surface of the skin contains an "oil-based" layer called the "acid mantle"
And this "acid mantle" is made up of "fatty acids" that are secreted from glands in the skin.
Now , . . these "fatty acids" mix with lactic acid and amino acids from our sweat . . . which in turn . . . creates the skin's pH balance.
Okay . . . now stay with me people . . .
As I've stated many, many times before . . .
"CANCER" can only live in an "OXYGEN DEPRIVED" environment.
That means . . . in an environment that is "ACIDIC" . . . which is a pH balance that is too low!
And how do we know if our skin is too "acidic"???
Well . . . the result of "acidic" skin is . . . skin that becomes red and inflamed . . . or has breakouts and acne.
And as we know from previous Health Tips . . . our skin contains 64% water . . .
AND . . . "water" in our skin DECREASES gradually with increased exposure to sunlight.
Therefore . . . making the skin more "acidic".
And an "acidic" environment in the skin . . . helps cancer cells and tumor cells to produce "proteins" that make them more "aggressive.
So tomorrow . . . let's talk about ways to help keep our skin "alkalized" . . . which is when our skin is RICH with "oxygen" . . . and a pH balance that is healthy
Because . . . cancer "CAN'T" live in an "OXYGEN RICH" environment
AND THAT MEAN "ANY" KIND OF CANCER PEOPLE!!!!!!
It doesn't matter where "cancer" shows up on or in the body . . . the DNA of cells change and mutate . . . when they become TOO "acidic". Simple as that!
