Vinegar as a Weapon Against Cancer

The A.P. John Institute for Cancer Research issued a press release on acetic acid’s detrimental effect on cancer cells by inhibiting glycolysis, the energy-producing process in cells. The release notes, “…logic dictates that if you shut down Glycolysis with acetic acid, cancer cells will die from starvation.” The release also states several times that vinegar is a natural source of acetic acid. Additionally, the article mentions citric acid and notes, “Citric Acid is readily converted into acetic acid in the body and when combined, prove to be valuable weapons in fighting cancer.”
