I could not put this book down! Robert Barefoot explains everything so clearly and anyone can understand this very important information. I want to scream, "WHY don't more doctors know this or pass this on! " The research was done over 60 years ago and the medical profession continues to ONLY burn, cut, or poison [radiation, surgery, chemotherapy/drugs] the symptoms of disease rather than build the immune system so that the body can fight disease like it was designed to do. As the back cover of the book states, "cancer cells cannot exist in an alkaline enviornment", so if we put the body back into an alkaline state as it was when we were born, the cancer cells simply die off. Pass this book on to EVERYONE you know. A good companion book is Theodore Baroody's book "Alkalize or Die". Pretty straight forward title, but another book that will give anyone ammunition for wellness.

This book proves how important it is to have the body fluids slightly alkaline and tells you how to test yourself so you maintain a proper balance. It also proves that calcium is the most important nutrient after oxygen and water because calcium carries the other nutrients into the cells. "Over 200 diseases are linked to IONIC CALCIUM DEFICIENCY: Cancer, Diabetes, Arthritis, Heart Disease, Osteoprosis, Alzheimer's Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome...And Many, Many More. Acidosis (overly acid body) is the primary indicator of I.C.D.D. - IONIC CALCIUM DEFICIENCY DISEASE. Scientists have discovered that the body fluids of healthy people are alkaline (high pH) whereas the body fluids of sick people are acidic (low pH). 'Calcium deficiency is the universal property of all cancer cells.' CALCIUM IN BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS (vol 1, l985, CRD Press, Inc.) 'The early work of Otto Warburg, some 60 years ago (CAUSE AND PREVENTION OF CANCER; Biochem Zeits, 152:514-520, 1924), showed that cancer was associated with aenerobic (deficiency of oxygen) conditions, resulting in fermentation and a drop in the pH of the cell. (LOW pH HYPERTHERMIA CANCER THERAPY, Cancer Chemotherapy Pharmacology 4; 137-145, 1980). Moreover, the production of mutation receptors cannot occur with the pH of the cell in the healthy, calcium buffered 7.4 to 6.6 range." ....

Information about Robert Barefoot isn't very easy to find.. I guess he likes to remain low-key. But he has collaborated with Dr. Reisch on the best health book ever written. If you are looking to buy a book to improve your health, well-being, and to extend your life, this is the book! His facts are backed up by superior scientific research, and the book makes all the sense in the world. I have tried everything known to man.. even Gary Null's programs. The lifestyle outlined in "The Calcium Factor" has brought my health from average to great in only a few weeks. I can't say enough great things about this book.

...I read the calcium factor, which talked about coral calcium neutralizing the acid condiditon in your body. I highly recommend anyone , who is interested in a natural way of maintaining their health, to read this book . . I am 75 years young. I have been a diabetic for 15 yrs. I have always had what oncologists call a high acid stomach, consequently, all the problems that go along with this condition: heartburn, acid reflux, ulcers, hiatal hernia,h-pylora infection, continue to plague me.Twenty years ago the doctors at the Cleveland clinic said that I would probably have to be on tums ,after meals, for the rest of my life. Since then they came out with a pill that will stop the acid from forming. First I was on tagamet, then prilosec, prevacid, and pepcid.
So I gave the coral calcium a try--- I took 3 caps a day and after just three weeks I was able to stop the previcid...it appears for good, because after six months all I take is 3 capsules of coral calcium a day. In addition, after a couple of months on the coral calcium, my hands were free of arthritic pain, my thumbs hurt so badly , I could not grip anything,my doctor recommended cortisone shots in both hands to relieve the pain.needless to say, I was extremely happy to tell him the coral calcium did the job painlessly for me. Coral calcium has been a natural way to get my system out of it's acid condition. I am certain it is helping to keep my bones strong too. Do I recommend it? You bet! It could be the answer you are looking for...make make certain it's pure marine coral calcium from okinawa...

I have been taking supplements for 20 years and engaged in athletic activities and working out- all was fine until a few years ago my body took a dive for no apparent reason. I tried lots of solutions with some help. 30 days ago I read this book and got these supplements from SYMBIOGEN and like magic- the brown spots faded, my yellowing skin vanished, I lost excess weight, I regained new strength, my hair stopped falling out in the shower, I no longer get winded during exercise, my EYESIGHT is improving- I am positively amazed at what a dramatic effect the right calcium formulation has had on me. I really feel as if I'm growing younger- my friends notice it too. If you do not at least read this book, which explains everything in qualifiable scientific detail, at least take this new age antidote to aging.
