Acid Alkaline

From http://www.askdocweb.com/ph.html
In order to maintain the negative charge on red blood cells, a specific range of pH is required. Too much acid will interfere with this negative charge in a pretty frightening way. When the acid level is too high it strips away the negative charge from the red blood cells. The result is that your red blood cells then tend to clump together and not flow as easily, making it much more difficult for them to flow through the bloodstream. This means less oxygen and less nutrition gets delivered your cells. Too much acid also weakens the red blood cells and they begin to die. And what do they release into your system when they die, more acid.

• Dr Robert Young, author of "The pH Miracle" has been saying this for years - "Obesity is an acid problem, the fat is saving our lives.”
• In 1933 a New York doctor named William Howard Hay published a ground-breaking book, A New Health
Era in which he maintains that all disease is caused by auto-toxication (or "self-poisoning") due to acid accumulation in the body: Now we depart from health in just the proportion to which we have allowed our
alkalies to be dissipated by introduction of acid-forming food in too great amount... It may seem strange to
say that all disease is the same thing, no matter what its myriad modes of expression, but it is verily so.—
William Howard Hay, M.D.
• More recently, in his book Alkalize or Die, Dr. Theodore A. Baroody says essentially the same thing: The countless names of illnesses do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause...too much tissue acid waste in the body!—Theodore A. Baroody, N.D., D.C., Ph.D.
• The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has concluded that alkalising diets improve bone density and serum growth hormone concentrations, the acidosis resulting from acidic diets contributes to bone and muscle loss.
• In a book "Reverse Aging" Sang Whang proposes this theory of aging: We age because we gradually accumulate organic acid wastes. These wastes are often surrounded by cholesterol. Cellulite is a gel-like substance made of fat in which are trapped acid wastes in pockets below the skin.
