Baking soda vs. cancer
According to an Italian doctor named Tulio Simonchini, baking soda can also destroy cancer cells. Dr. Simonchini managed to cure hundreds of his patients with the help of baking soda, and although he lost his license, he still claims that the remedy helps. Dr. Simonchini claims that cancer is a fungus – thanks to baking soda’s antifungal properties, it can destroy the fungi growing in your body and effectively eliminate the disease.
To treat cancer in your body, all you need to do is mix a bit of baking soda and molasses (or honey), then consume the mixture very morning. As cancer cells feed on sugar, the honey allows the baking soda to enter the cells and flush them with alkalinity, effectively destroying them. The remedy is safe for everyone, although not recommended for children under the age of 5 and pregnant women as well. Avoid using it if you’re sensitive to sodium, and consult your doctor before the start of the treatment.
