>- the body has a very narrow pH range it can survive in. If this level goes too alkaline or too acidic the person will die.
You must be quoting me as I have said this several times. However, if a person will die at a certain pH, then aren't they almost dead at a point that is close to it? I will tell you right now that this is true.
But the body RARELY goes acidic or alkaline. When we see this it is usually due to poisoning, uncontrolled diabetes or the over use of alkalinizers.
>- Check reliable sources for the truth, which shows just the opposite
Yes, I have a lot of books in my library, but do not need to look up most biochemical and physiological facts as I am quite familiar.
So do I and so am I.
And as I said the information being spouted by so many is wrong. Acidity does not cause disease. Most pathogens and cancer cells thrive by alkalinity, not acidity. Crack some of those books open and you will see what I mean. In fact, I will give you an example. The bacteria Helicobacter pylori secretes alkaline ammonia to neutralize the stomach acid to protect itself since the acid would otherwise kill it. The programmed cell death by cancer cells is inhibited by alkalinity, and the alkalinity of cancer cells promotes their growth factors. And I have posted several times on how alkalinity actually turns on the Candida growth gene and converts Candida from a benign yeast form in to a highly aggressive and pathogenic fungal form. If the urine is made too alkaline it can not only lead to infections but also kidney stones. If the vaginal cavity or the skin are alkalinized damage and infection can occur.
>- claiming that acidity in the cause of all disease.
The is not one single cause of disease and anyone who thinks so is in error.
Yes, an error that is frequently repeated, especially on health boards. For example, I have heard over and over how acidity causes cancer, which is a complete myth. In fact cancer cells actually rely on alkalinity to survive and proliferate. But look up all the sales sites out there selling alkalinizers and they will say just the opposite.
>- While you are at it research the dangers of alkalosis.
No need, I have been well aware since the 1960's. Either extreme can be deadly, but even getting somewhere near thoses extremes can cause serious permanent damage if not quickly fixed.
Yes, but again true alkalosis or acidosis is extremely rare since the body has so many redundant systems to maintain its pH.
Even being a bit high or low in pH is not good. Again, study physiological optimization. If your body is constantly having to pump out acidity or alkalinity, something is wrong and it needs to be fixed.
The body does this from the time of birth. Again the body has redundant means to maintain pH, the primary being respiration. So again our bodies work since the time of birth to maintain pH by increasing or decreasing acidity or alkalinity. Therefore, I have to disagree with your last sentence. Maintaining pH by dealing with acids or bases is nothing wrong, it is normal part of everyday metabolism.
Truth --- Ignorance shortens life span.
Which is why I am on Curezone trying to explain to people the facts behind human anatomy and physiology since many of the people here are CZ are completely ignorant on the subject.
