CNTF: Treating Cancer using High pH Therapy

According to Cancer Council Australia there is no substance to the idea of treating any form of cancer with sodium bicarbonate, and it warns that high doses can cause serious problems or even death.[1]

The March 2011 CNTF newsletter contains the article "Bi Carb Treatment for Cancer".[2] It is stated in the article that sodium bicarb "…is a very alkalizing substance which research has demonstrated to be extremely beneficial in treating cancers." The article concludes with an advertisement for "Trojan Sodium Bi Carbonate Formula", available for purchase through CNTF:

Trojan is a food supplement, which passes through the digestive system stimulating friendly digestive organisms found in the gut.

When supplemented with probiotics Trojan maximizes the continuous elementary canal efficiency promoting a healthy digestive system.

It is worth noting how disingenuous CNTF is being in selling this sodium bicarbonate product as a food supplement, yet taking care to place this advertisement with an article that spruiks the benefit of sodium bicarbonate as being "extremely beneficial in treating cancers".
An advertisement for this product has not appeared in any other CNTF newsletter that is available to me (June 2007 to September 2015 inclusive).
