As I get older, it seems like more and more movie stars pass away. I assume my perception is skewed because I’m simply more aware of the people that are passing away because of the personal memories that I have of their performances.
I remember like it was yesterday watching Easy Rider with my high school friends and thinking that Hopper and Fonda were so cool. Just the mention of the name Dennis Hopper brings back so many memories. I will miss him.
I get frustrated when someone dies from a disease like prostate cancer because I believe whole heartedly that the death could have been avoided. If Hopper or his oncologist had been aware of how effective an alkaline diet or alkaline ionized water are in dealing with prostate cancer, I assume the man would still be alive today. This discussion is not limited to fatalities, as many radical procedures such as surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy could be avoided if patients were made aware of the alternatives.
The pre-screen testing for prostate cancer is filled with folly. It is estimated that only one out of every 22 people who are informed that they have prostate cancer or are on “watch” for prostate cancer ever develop the disease to a point where it could become life threatening. As a result, a tremendous amount of needless worry is created because of the screening process.
Typically, when someone in America has a PSA count of 1-5, they are considered normal or healthy. When the count moves between 6 and 10, the patient is put on “watch” for possible development of cancer.
There is a school of thought in the medical field that patients should not even be screened for elevated PSA levels because of the life altering shock that is felt by patients receiving the news. However, there are 27,000 deaths each year in the USA due to prostate cancer, and screening can help save lives.
The real issue is not so much whether the testing should be conducted (I would rather know about the possibility of cancer developing so that I could do something about it). The real issue is what to do about the news that you have prostate cancer, or a precursor for cancer.
I don’t pretend to be a physician or more specifically an oncologist, but I have spoken with several men that have reduced their PSA levels down to the normal range as soon as they began drinking alkaline ionized water. The PSA levels of the men were typically in the “watch” range of 5 to 10, but I have also communicated closely with men with significantly higher PSA levels that put them well into the “cancer” range.

Every man that I have spoken with who has purchased a water ionizer and/or converted to an alkaline diet for prostate cancer has had positive results. I have also had discussions with Naturopathic Doctors and a live blood analyst who have helped many people with cancer by helping them become alkaline. I find the articles written by Robert Young on his work with cancer patients who have benefited from alkaline water and alkaline diets to be informative.
I would never make any claims about success rates with cancer when one attempts to help their body become alkaline. The people that I have spoken to, and the research that I have done have not involved scientific studies in accredited research facilities. However, the results can’t be denied and should not be ignored in my opinion. Whenever I talk to someone with cancer, I tell them I’m not a physician and they should consult their physician. I also tell them that according to my research, drinking alkaline water and eating an alkaline diet may help. I also tell them that there is evidence that reducing stress and getting enough sleep have been known to be positive factors.
I used to rely upon the common sense of my friends that had cancer to drink ionized water. Unfortunately, they were stubborn and refused to try the “voodoo water”. Eventually I took matters into my own hands and gave them free water ionizers. I was able to convince them that it was only water and couldn’t hurt them. I also let them know that they would be drinking the water for my benefit, as I couldn’t bear the thought of losing them when I had information that might be able to help.
Could Dennis Hopper or some of the 27,000 Americans who will die of prostate cancer this year have been saved by drinking alkaline water or eating an alkaline diet? I don’t know. What I do know is that the people that I talk to have had success and I would definitely want the people that I care about to be aware of this knowledge in a similar situation.
Better still, why not let the people that you love know about the importance of being alkaline before cancer and other diseases have a chance to spread. That way, the people you love can take the time to do their research while they are still healthy. Once a disease like cancer strikes, most patients are struck with fear and end up doing what their physicians recommend without considering the consequences. This subject is too important to leave in the hands of people whose hands are tied by their profession, and who continue to offer protocols that they know will not work in many cases.
