I find it quite disturbing that people on here actually believe that doctors would completely dismiss a potential cure for probably the most hideous disease humans can contract. Seriously, they wouldn't and those who cite big pharma as being behind this suppression seem to be overlooking one very important point; "big" pharma would be all over this in a flash. If it worked that is. All it would take is for one medium or even small pharma company to run with this and they would grow like the tumours would whilst on this diet. Given the fact that capsaicin is naturally occurring and easily obtained means they wouldn't have to synthesise it thus increasing their profits.
Seriously people, think rationally about this.
From my research on this "cure" it seems that the doctor's methods in the book that's being promoted WERE independently reviewed and guess what? None, yes that's right, NONE of the patients survived. The doctor also had his medical licence revoked after it was discovered he was keeping incomplete records.
If you understand even a small amount of human bio-physiology you would then understand that the whole premise about acid/alkaline bodies is complete nonsense.
Another thing to take into account is although capsaicin has been found to delay prostate tumours in mice it has also been found to cause intestinal adenosarcomas in them too....
But don't let scientific facts which have been proved time and time and time again get in the way.
Food can help prevent cancer but it can't cure it.
