    The oxygen in our pet's tissues will enable them to fight infections and cancer, along with many other diseases. Find out why.....
    [​IMG]

    During the days of the dinosaurs the oxygen content of the earth’s atmosphere was 50%.



    Scientists actually took tiny bubbles found in arctic ice and amber and removed the air in them to measure their oxygen content.



    One hundred years ago the oxygen content of the atmosphere was 38%. Now it ‘s around 21%.



    We all breathe oxygen. When oxygen levels are increased, the red blood cells pick up the extra oxygen and provide it to the cells and tissues. More oxygen means more efficient waste and toxin removal. Cells function better when they have ample oxygen available to them. Importantly, most disease-producing organisms, in addition to cancer, like environments with low or no oxygen.




    Oxygen also helps neutralize the acids in our body: one example being the lactic acid resulting from muscle overload. Oxygenated cells burn fat more efficiently. Ample oxygen assists in the digestion of foods and creates energy. Because all the cells in your dog’s body perform better when they have enough oxygen, immune system function also improves.



    Ourselves, our dogs and our cats are living in a very different world from dinosaurs. Dinosaurs didn’t have computers or cell phones. They could never be considered couch potatoes. While some moved quickly and some more slowly, they all moved. They had to search for food and water and avoid predators, or reversely, catch prey. All the while they were breathing 50 % oxygen. Movement and activity improves blood and lymphatic circulation and the ability of the lungs to use oxygen.

    Nowadays, as we’re breathing 21% oxygen, we’ve
    also become a
    generation of couch potatoes. Maybe now that you understand the
    importance of oxygen, walking, running and playing with your dog will
    becomes an entirely different endeavor. Increasing respiration blows
    out carbon dioxide and creates a more oxygenated and alkaline body.

    When we look at it all this way, we’re now pursuing both a healthier
    oxygenated body in addition to fitness.


    ALKALINITY AND OXYGEN
    In high school science you may have learned about pH using these little
    strips of paper called ‘litmus paper’. These paper strips would turn
    various shades of red or blue, after being soaked by a liquid, thus
    indicating what pH that substance was. You would have found that
    vinegar and lemon juice are acidic they taste sour) while baking soda is
    alkaline (that means basic) and therefore tastes bitter.
    When you are
    measuring the pH you’re finding out if a substance is acidic or alkaline.
    What does pH mean and why does anyone care?
    Why is pH so important to health?
    What in the world does the pH really mean?

    The abbreviation pH stands for “potential hydrogen”. The pH of any
    solution is the measure of it’s hydrogen ion concentration. The
    higher
    the pH the more alkalkine and the more oxygen-rich the fluid is.

    Let’s say that again for emphasis. Oxygen-rich
    .
    The more alkaline the pH the more oxygen rich the fluid is.
    Being oxygen-rich is the key to health of cells and organs. Healthy
    functioning of the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, hormones, heart,

    kidney and all other organs and systems depends on alkaline conditions.
    The more alkaline the environment, the better they perform.
    Cells are surrounded by an interstitial fluid that bathes and surrounds
    the cells.It’s actually secreted by the cells themselve. An interstitial fluid
    that is alkaline allows organs such as the kidney and liver to function far
    more efficiently. In fact, the kidney and liver function almost 40 times
    better in an
    alkaline environment.
    It’s the same mechanism involved when acid rain “kills” a lake. The fish literally suffocate to death because the acid in the lake “binds up” all of the available oxygen. It’s not that the oxygen has gone anywhere; it’s just no longer available.

    The food your dog eats will determine the pH of his or her body.
    However, a food’s pH, measured when it is sitting in a bowl on the
    counter is not going to be
    the effect that food has on the pH your dog’s
    body. In fact, a food’s original pH can have the opposite effect on the
    body. A food’s pH effect on the body is determined after it is digested.
    As one example, a lemon is acidic outside of the body but will, when
    eaten and digested, make the body fluid more alkaline. Milk, an
    alkaline outside the body, will have the effect of making the body itself
    more acidic. Apple cider vinegar is, of course,
    acidic. But it will create
    an alkaline effect within the body.Fermented foods will also alkalinize
    cells and organs.
    Meat, poultry and similar protein sources have the effect of making the
    body more acidic. There’s an interesting explanation of why this
    happens. When these proteins digest, molecules of both sulphur and
    phosphorus are formed,making the intestinal tract acidic. Meat also
    contains nitrogen which, when digested, transforms into ammonia.

    Ammonia is toxic to cells and so the body needs to neutralize I all first
    and then excrete it.
    The body does have a way to neutralize and manage these excess
    acids and toxins. It’s done with the body’s stores of bicarbonate.
    These bicarbonate stores in the body are pulled into the gut in order to
    neutralize the acidic environment that’s been created by the ammonia
    and other compounds in the intestinal tract. When these stores are
    released and lost into the bowels, the intracellular fluids- having lost
    their stores
    of bicarbonate- become acidic.

    When the body becomes too acidic, three different organs are responsible for eliminating these extra acids and toxic materials build up the body: the kidneys, lungs and liver. Too many toxins and too much acidity put a great stress on these organs. The liver is one of the most important organs because it can process 40 times more of these toxins than the kidneys. When the body is acid it cannot perform the tasks of maintenance, cleaning and generating cellular ATP adequately. Without ATP- the cells’ source of energy, their batteries run low and carcinogens build up.
    It should be pretty obvious how diet and exercise has a powerful effect on health. We’ve been reading about it in holistic human health magazines for years. Now we know the secret. Excellent oxygenation of tissues and cells promotes better health along with more resistance to diseases and illnesses.



    Our pets should receive servings of foods that help alkalinize and oxygenate the cells and organs in their bodies. They should also be encouraged to exercise every day. Simple, everyday activities, often taken for granted, can have an important impact on the health of our pets.

    Oxygen content of our atmosphere down from 38% to 21% in 100 years! :shock: No natural evolution can keep up with that. I wonder if this explains why the incidence of all types of cancer seems to have escalated in human and animal both. I had just assumed that it was that we both lived longer and medical science knew more about the cancers that attack us. A very interesting article in so many ways! :thumbsup2:

    Add to that people are more sedentary sitting behind computer screens all days and using electronic devices instead of getting out and walking and enjoying nature.
    I shudder to think about all the kids that rely on computer games for entertainment instead of being outside running and playing and enjoying life outside of the electronic field of gadgets and games.

    I just looked up about high elevation oxygen and my available oxygen is about 16.8% here at 6,400 feet. I've always been active in my life, if not downright athletic, until about the last 5 years. New pup is changing all that, but I can sure tell that I'm not in shape like my younger days! Thanks for the interesting article @strykerdobe!
