The Vital Importance of Oxygen for Optimum Health

The renowned biochemist scientist Dr. Otto Warburg may have discovered an underlying cause of all cancers over 50 years ago. He actually won two Nobel Prizes for discovering the clues as to why cancer develops. In 1931 Dr. Warburg won his first Nobel Prize for his work in proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. He has shown that cancer cells cannot grow in a highly oxygenated environment. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. He revealed that when oxygen fails and fermentation is substituted for a cell’s energy, the pathway to cancer is opened. He stated that the main cause of cancer is the replacement of this normal oxygen respiration of body cells by an anaerobic (without oxygen) cell respiration.

Some causes of poor oxygenation include a buildup of carcinogens and other toxins within and around cells, which blocks and then damages the cellular oxygen respiration mechanism. The majority of the foods and drinks we consume are acidic, with colas and other soft drinks being highly acidic. Sang Whang, in his book Reverse Aging, points out that toxins are acidic. If blood starts to become acidic, then the body must take the toxins out of the blood and deposit them in cells so that the blood will be able to maintain a slightly alkaline condition. This causes those cells to become more acidic, and also causes a decrease in their oxygen levels. Alkaline water (including the water in cells) can hold a lot of oxygen. Acidic water (or cells) can hold very little oxygen. So, the more acidic your cells are, the less oxygenated they will be.

It is not so easy to get oxygen into cells. Breathing oxygen is still limited by the amount of hemoglobin and acidity for getting oxygen into the cells. A delivery mechanism is needed to get the oxygen into the cells,

A lack of oxygen results in sickness, poor vitality, poor stamina, fatigue and a general weak disposition. Authorities stress that most diseases especially yeast or fungal infections like Candida albians occur most frequently in any oxygen poor environment in the body. Dr. Stephen Levine, a molecular biologist and respected nutrition researcher has also stated, “We can look at oxygen deficiency as the single greatest cause of disease.” Thus, the development of a shortage of oxygen in the blood could very well be the starting point for the loss of the immune system and the beginning of feared health problems such as cancer, leukemia, aids, seizures, nerve deterioration and Candida.

Though oxygen is one of the important keys to good health, not everyone is aware of this. Scientists are only now looking at the important role that oxygen plays in the prevention of disease. The four modern day stressors, toxic stress, emotional stress, physical trauma and infections, all draw upon and excessively deplete the body’s oxygen supply.
The result? Anaerobic diseases (virus, bacteria, fungus – which like low Oxygen) find it hard to thrive in such an Oxygen-rich environment.
Oxygen provides life and energy to every living cell. If poor eating habits, drinking, pollution, toxins, drugs or lack of exercise abuse the body, the cells are deprived of vital oxygen and the immune system may be weakened. Low oxygen levels are undesirable because they affect the body’s metabolism and may even cause it to manufacture improper chemicals and/or give rise to various health problems.

Oxygen is a powerful detoxifier and when it is deficient, then toxins begin to devastate the body functions and deplete the body of life-giving energy. Initial symptoms of oxygen deficiency may include overall weakness, fatigue, circulations problems, poor digestion, muscle aches and pains, dizziness, depression, memory loss, irrational behavior, irritability, acid stomach and bronchial complications. One of oxygen’s main functions in the body is disintegration; rubble, garbage, toxins, refuse, debris, and any useless substance is destroyed by oxygen and carried out of the system. One can therefore realize the vital importance of oxygen to optimum health.
