What science says about

Alkaline Diet For Bone Disease

Check out what experts have to say

Research has shown that when the blood pH becomes acidic, the body extracts the minerals from the bones and use them to neutralize the acidic pH environment, in order to reset the blood pH to normal levels of alkalinity. Accordingly, this results in depleting the bones from minerals, leaving the bones weaker and more vulnerable. The supporters of the alkaline diet
