What Causes Acidic Blood?
Continued from Alkaline Diet
The main culprit is an acid generating diet propagated by eating canned or packaged processed foods and drinking acidic water or beverages.
These include the following:
- Pre-packaged Baked Goods such as cookies, cupcakes, brownies and packaged cakes containing excessive sugar or high-fructose corn syrup.
- Processed Meats treated with preservatives and too much salt.
- Frozen dinners – many contain harmful flavor enhancers such as Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
When buying any of the above, read the list of ingredients carefully and discard those containing excessive fat, high-fructose corn syrup, and MSG.
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
According to Dr. Boyd Williams of Optimal Health University, excessive intake of MSG can cause nausea, and mood swings associated with the bi-polar syndrome. Research has also linked MSG to autism and Alzheimer’s disease.
High-Fructose Corn Syrup
Apart from contributing to acidic blood, according to the PubMed article “Fructose: Pure, White, and Deadly?” excessive intake of refined sugar, especially high-fructose corn syrup, leads to "the risk of obesity, risk of diabetes, risk of cardiovascular disease, risk of gout in men, and risk of metabolic syndrome.”
Other Important Factors:
- Drinking acidic (low pH) water, cola and other beverages.
- Using the artificial sweetener Aspartame.
Water is the most abundant compound in the human body, comprising 70% of the bodily mass. If your body pH is acidic, it's time to adopt an alkaline diet and to start drinking alkaline water.
How Dangerous is Acid?
If our blood pH level falls to just below 7, human cells stop functioning.
If this happened, we would lapse into a coma and die from blood poisoning.
This means that the most important task our liver and kidneys are faced with, is processing acid waste and maintaining the correct level of alkalinity in our blood.
To keep us alive, the bodily cleansing organs will do whatever it takes to maintain a blood pH balance between 7.35 and 7.45...
And that includes sacrificing other organs and bone mass if necessary.
Once our alkaline reserves are depleted, the liver and kidneys raid our bones, teeth and other organs to pirate neutralizing calcium to detoxify the blood.
Why We Get Fat
If our overtaxed vital organs cannot rid the body of the acid waste quickly, they store it in the form of fat for "later processing" (which, as you know, never happens).
These toxins are stored as far away from our vital organs as possible, so the fatty waste finds its way to our bellies, buttocks, chest and thighs.
And this is why diet and exercise seldom work in the long run...
Acidic blood not only promotes obesity, but as mentioned above, it also makes us vulnerable to pathogens, including the herpes virus and other nasty microorganisms.
There’s no doubt - Over acidity leads to poor health, facial wrinkles, premature aging and an early grave.
Obesity is not a fat problem - it’s an acid problem.
