well i might agree that this is a good diet be it anti cancer or cancerous etc.. juice is good, so are vegetables

caffeine, green tea catechin, etc are all plant phenolic compounds.. so what is their role in cancer development? distilled water is not acidic, but generally neutral.

well, one thing for sure, the body cannot digest a large component of vegetables and plant material, i.e. cellulose because we lack cellulase unlike cows.... meat wise the body's still able to provide the necessary enzymes. as per undigested meat going through putrifaction etc.. well there's definitely a lot of bacterial activity in the large intestines but minimal in the small intestine

no!! cancer cells do not have cell walls........... and no, your body does not secrete enzymes to attack the protein cell walls,.. if ever there is. the author may be referring to the extra cellular matrix, but most of our body cells are all enveloped in excellular matrix materials and a basal lamina anyway.

anti oxidants may be good to reduce oxidative damage from other sources, but anti oxidants do not really target a cell for cell death. they are more protective than damaging, by accepting radicals etc, preventing the peroxidation of fats and other proteins etc.

well this is something i might agree with but i dont know why he is so obsessed with an acidic environment
