Investigation: 

Vishvas News first read the message carefully and started with Google Keyword search to check whether really a cure for cancer has been found and that too in the form of baking soda. 
We found various studies on the internet. One article mentioned: Since baking soda can neutralize acid, the researchers believe drinking it could reduce a tumor’s acidity and bring dormant cells back to life, making them easier targets for chemotherapy.

Some other studies too mentioned the same

However, nowhere was it mentioned that baking soda is a perfect cure for cancer. 

The viral message was attributed to two people. One was Dr. Chi Van Dang who is a renowned oncologist. Vishvas News reached out to Dr. Chi Dang via email and shared the viral message with him. Dr. Dang in response said, “This is unfortunately incorrect. We never claimed that baking soda ‘cures’ cancer.”

In the next step of the investigation, we reached out to the office of Dr. Rajendra Badwe, Surgical Oncologist at Tata Memorial Center. The message was also attributed to him saying that Dr. Rajendra Badwe too has supported the claim. Vishvas News reached out to Dr. Badwe’s office where his secretary talked to us. He too stressed that Dr. Badwe has not made any such statement, nor supports the claim that baking soda cures cancer. 

In the next step, Vishvas News reached out to Dr. Manish Kumar, Sr Consultant Medical Oncologist, American Oncology Institute, Gurugram. On the claim, he said, “Tumor cells are known to have hypoxia (area of low oxygen) which leads to Lactic acidosis. These cells form part of the entire tumor load which is difficult to target with conventional Chemo. It has been an area of research for a long time how to target these dormant areas. The reversal of lactic acidosis is not easy. The only reliable way is to increase the oxygenation of that area. The study by Ludwig Cancer Research has used a novel mechanism to reverse the acidity by using baking soda. It is an interesting thought; however, it is very early to accept these strategies based on the preliminary data from an isolated study. It is a welcome approach and larger studies are required to test this hypothesis in the management of cancer, where every day some new research is coming to light. Any inputs can’t be ignored & should be followed up.” 


It was hence clear that the viral claim stating that baking soda cures cancer is fake. It only reverses the acidity. 
In the last step of the investigation, Vishvas News did a background search of the Facebook user who shared the viral claim. BR Shahu is a resident of Mumbai and has 4.5K friends on Facebook. 

Conclusion: Viral claim stating baking soda cures cancer is fake. The doctors whom the viral message is attributed to, too denied the claim. Baking soda only reverses the acidity; studies about the same in cancer patients is underway.
