The acid-alkaline hypothesis holds that certain foods leave either an acid or alkaline ?ash? behind after they are metabolized, and that we should favor alkaline foods (which are primarily plants) over acid foods (which are primarily animal products). This will supposedly protect us from the diseases of modern civilization, whereas eating a diet with a net acid load will make us vulnerable to everything from cancer to osteoporosis. In this presentation I will explore whether current scientific evidence supports the acid-alkaline hypothesis, and clear up confusion about what it means for your health.
