Top Alkaline Foods You Should Eat to Beat Cancer

All of the above foods cause our bodies to be very acidic, which is not a good thing. Numerous studies show that cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment; therefore, it is in our best interest to eat foods that reduce the acids in our bodies and bring it back to a more alkaline state.
