Our Immune System Flourishes in an Alkaline Environment


pH Scale is a set of values usually given as 1 to 14, where 1 is very acidic, 7 is neutral, and 14 is very alkaline.
Human blood pH should be SLIGHTLY ALKALINE (7.35 – 7.45).  Below or above this range means symptoms and disease.  A pH of 7.0 is neutral.  A pH below 7.0 is acidic.  A pH above 7.0 is alkaline.
Other Acid Forming foods / drinks that we consume regularly are: corn syrup, sugar, beer(which has a pH of 2.5), hard liquor, spirits, wine, Catsup, cocoa, coffee (has a pH of 4), softdrinks(cola has a pH of 2), pepper, vinegar, aspirin, medicinal drugs.  BUT NOTE that although it might seem that citrus fruits would have an acidifying effect on the body, the citric acid they contain actually has an alkalinizing effect in the system.
Note that a food’s acid or alkaline forming tendency in the body has nothing to do with the actual pH of the food itself. For example, lemons are very acidic, however the end products they produce after digestion and assimilation are very alkaline so, lemons are alkaline forming in the body. Likewise, meat will test alkaline before digestion, but it leaves very acidic residue in the body so, like nearly all animal products, meat is very acid forming. (rense.com)……………Battery Acid has a pH of about 1.  See how close soda and battery acid are?  But we still love them don’t we?  (the Truth About Cancer / Facts About Cancer)
In general, An acidic pH results from consuming Meat / Foods High in Fat, Salty foods, Sugary products, Softdrinks, Liquor, Coffee, Medicinal drugs (w/c are acid-forming), Fluoride, Artificial Sweeteners, Preservatives, Stress, Anger, Keeping Grudges, Worry, Depression, Carrying other people’s problems, Emotional Problems, Mental and physical Trauma Lack of Fresh Air, Smoking or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients.  Cancer cells won’t last when the body absorption of oxygen is high because unlike normal cells whichsurvive by a process of Aerobiosis (life in the presence of oxygen) cancer cells survive by a process of Anaerobiosis (life in the absence of oxygen).  (the Truth About Cancer / Facts About Cancer)

An acidic balance will decrease the body’s ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients,decrease the body’s ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it’s ability to detoxify heavy metals,make TUMOR cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness.
