Hola - I'm looking for some insight into the acid/alkaline fad that seems connected with vegan raw foodists (mainly encountered it at the blog of the gal who wrote crazysexycancer - she seems to have becomes extreme & looks frail, hope she keeps her cancer in check.) anyway - on one level it's total bunk - your body regulates your blood ph, thank god, because any minor change either way & you'd be a corpse. Your stomach is acid - whatever leaves it is acid. However - I'm wondering if this isn't what these folks are talking about? Or are they indeed ignorant & brainwashed? It's true bodily fluids can be either acidic or alkaline...semen is alkaline & the vagina is acid - as most women know the more acidic the better or you'll get an infection....urine....saliva...etc. I would guess there's about zero basis for this 'diet' - (and the enzyme thing!), for instance eating 'raw' - well, you could say the stomach has it's way of 'cooking' it in all that acid...just like thinly sliced raw fish in lemon juice essentially cooks it.
Just wondering if I don't understand what these folks are talking about - ? Because they can't be talking about blood, & given the stomach acidifies all food....? Hard to believe these folks would be that gullible...?
Thanks for any insight!
