Some doctors theorize that ‘candida‘ or other systemic fungal infections cause, or at the very least, contribute to the development of cancer and ‘some doctors are certain of it’!! When you examine the link between fungus and cancer further, it seems to makes sense, as fungus is abundantly found in our food, in the air we breathe and in our environment, so all we now need is a weakened immune system, opening the door for a body wide candida infection to take hold.
It was Dr. Tullio Simoncini, a doctor from Rome, who first recognized this connection whilst observing cancer paitients’ for over 20 years, theorizes that ‘the hidden cause of cancer is candida‘. Dr. Simoncini believes that by ‘rapidly shifting‘ the pH of the cells to a very alkaline state, this kills the fungi (as well as other harmful bacteria and viruses), making it impossible for the fungus to adapt, rendering it defenseless. Fungi, he writes, is:
“The most adaptable, aggressive and evolved micro-organism known in nature.”
Also advocating the fungus – cancer connection, Author of many health books, Doug Kaufmann highlights that antibiotics (which literally means ‘anti-life’), upsets the balance of so called ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria, playing an even greater role in activation of candida albicans, when favorable conditions exist. Antibiotics destroy the normal, protective gut bacteria, allowing intestinal yeast and fungi to grow unchecked, resulting in ‘Candida Overgrowth’, which can lead to immune suppression, symptoms of autoimmune diseases, or even cancer.
‘Mold and fungi can grow very quickly, taking over weak organisms’
As the biological environment becomes overly-acidified, it sets the scene for the primitive stage of fungi to begin to form. This set of circumstances allows for these forms of yeast, fungus and mold to evolve, spread and form colonies, leaving an opportunity for disease to manifest, proliferate and finally take over, unless unfavorable conditions are reversed and brought back into balance.
