Alkaline water is water that has a high PH (base) and is often claimed to provide many health benefits one of them heal or prevent cancer. The reason why alkaline water initially claimed to be beneficial for cancer is because it is said to be creating an alkaline environment in the body. Cancer cells need an acid environment to grow and when the body turns into a base it is assumed by itself to die or never arise. Professor Jorge J. Nieva from the Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Southern California, explains the alkaline water consumption is not able to change the acidity in the body. The body has a regulatory system that will automatically change the acidity of all foods and beverages consumed.
