    It seems most studies come to the same conclusions:
    [quote]

    CONCLUSION: All of the findings from this meta-analysis were contrary to the acid ash hypothesis. Higher phosphate intakes were associated with decreased urine calcium and increased calcium retention. This meta-analysis did not find evidence that phosphate intake contributes to demineralization of bone or to bone calcium excretion in the urine. Dietary advice that dairy products, meats, and grains are detrimental to bone health due to "acidic" phosphate content needs reassessment. There is no evidence that higher phosphate intakes are detrimental to bone health.

    I guess Stephan&#39;s post puts the last nail in the coffin, thanks for the link Rozsa. And I second Pikaia on the vit D point, it&#39;s odd Cordain didn&#39;t make the connection. But then, and if I remember correctly, didn&#39;t he advocate a low saturated fat diet and the use of canola as well?


    On a side note, I think we are creating a really cool information network here at MDA, promoting a multidisciplinary, evidence-based, analitical approach on nutrition. Great resource.

    Perhaps that&#39;s why many zero carbers experience severe leg cramps if they have a drop of salt? Some imbalance is present there, in my opinion, and I&#39;m just basing this on what I read over at ZIOH.

    Leg cramps are due to an electrolyte (sodium/potassium) imbalance. I get leg cramps if I have a big dose of salt.


    Low potassium from no veggies means it is easy to overdose on salt.


    Grok didn&#39;t add salt to food. We aren&#39;t built to handle lots of it.

    Alkaline / acid balance was first discussed by Dr. Hay.

    He published his diet in 1915.


    The Hay system had 5 important rules.


    1. Starches and sugars should not be eaten with proteins and acid fruits at the same meal.


    2. Vegetables, salads and fruits should from the major part of the diet.


    3. Protein, starches and fats should be eaten in small quantities.


    4. Only whole grains and starches should be used, all refined processed foods should be taboo-in particular white flour and sugar and all foods made with them, and highly processed fats such as margarine.


    5. An interval of four to four and half hours should should elapse between meals of different character.


    Proteins require an acid medium for digestion. Our stomach produces hydrochloric acid to digest proteins.


    Starches require an aklaine solution. This starts in our mouths with the action of ptaylin.


    The short strokes is mixing our acid / alkaline foods mixes the digestive juices required to digest our foods... slowing it down... doing us a disservice... yada yada.

    I was just googling this yeasterday to get more information about it. All I found was 10 different sites claiming that acid foods where A, B & C and alkaline foods were D, E & F, and the next site was just the opposite.


    I came to the conclusion that it&#39;s just a new form of CW because all the "most acidic" foods were meat, fat/oils, fish and eggs. "TO consume in moderation".
