Eat a lot of fibrous food, raw food and slightly gone-off food will mean your body will keep the Ph low. If you mainly eat processed foods or are fruitarian, the Ph will be high. When the Ph is high, your body can't destroy as many of the pathogens you inevitably eat, making you more vulnerable to parasites and illness. Similarly, someone who often eats raw brassicas can eat raw brassicas, but someone who doesn't will get indigestion. Why? The person who eats lots of raw brassicas has a lower Ph due to eating raw brassicas, which, in turn, allows them to eat more raw brassicas. Your body doesn't always work immediately in response to stimuli, sometimes it works in a feedback loop. And you stomach Ph is linked to the foods you usually eat, not the ones you just ate.
Actually, if you want to compare juice and alcohol (a good comparison, due to similarities in how the body processes fructose and alcohol), then you'd be wrong. Frequent consumption in small to moderate quantities is more likely to overwhelm the liver than occasional high consumption. Think of the liver as a filter with a bag on the side. It takes an incompatible sugar (alcohol or fructose) and filters it (into glucose), putting it into the bag for later use. In VERY small quantities, it can steadily do this, as the bag is always kept relatively empty. But the filter is in continual use, so it will degrade faster than in someone who consumes infrequently. In small or moderate quantities taken frequently, the bag is often full and the filter is overworked, leading to fast degradation of both items/functions. In large quantities taken frequently the bag is full to burst and the filter is worn down quickly (fatty liver). In large quantities taken infrequently, the filter is worked heavily, but given time to clean and the bag is very full, but given time to empty. The damage is temporary.
The trick is to basically consume these sugars in very small quantities, very infrequently or both. The middle-ground is the worst place to be because you never rest your liver.
I was just mentioning that some of us would eat slightly "rotten" food.If you wouldn't eat a rotten orange, why would you drink one.
Glad you're in the same camp, comrade.
