Re: Dr. Robert Young on CNN obesity is not a fat problem it is an acid problem caused by the body being too acidic.

The body needs to keep the toxins or acids away from vital organs and that is why fat is created to store those toxins. I do not think it is nonsense I think it is fact. Just my opinion.

You are right about the stomach acid commonly being low when they often prescribe proton pump inhibitors when the symptoms of low stomach acid are the same as high stomach acid.

But again like i say acidosis is not an all that common condition definitely nowhere near to the extent that they make out all disease is caused by an acidic PH or we'd be seeing acidosis much more frequently.

So what are the latest scientific findings on the acidic issue?

Cross posting this from another reply i did in a thread that likely wont get the views:

Antibiotics kill off the gut flora which creates an alkaline enviroment which is why people get digestive problems, bacterial/fungal overgrowths commonly after antibiotic use/abuse.

Heres a few exerpts from a study:

"In tissue samples from mucosal surfaces with a non-acidic pH, such as the tongue, oesophagus, intestine, and most skin areas, filamentous forms of C albicans predominated, and most of them exhibited both 1H4 immunostaining and an invasive phenotype (fig 3A ). In internal organs having a non-acidic pH (liver, lung, heart, and thyroid) from patients with systemic candidiasis, variable numbers of yeast cells were found, together with hyphae or pseudohyphae in virtually all cases. In these tissues, both yeast and filamentous forms showed strong 1H4 immunoreactivity (fig 3B , C). In contrast, in those tissues with an acidic pH, such as the stomach and collecting ducts of the kidney, the predominant form of C albicans was the blastospore (yeast). Interestingly, in these locations yeast cells essentially showed no 1H4 immunoreactivity (fig 3D , E). However, when adjacent tissue invasion was present, hyphae or pseudohyphae were the predominant form."

"The ability to undergo transition from the yeast to the hyphal form appears to be crucial in the pathogenesis of invasive candidiasis. 4– 6 Both yeast cells and hyphae are found in infected tissues and contribute to pathogenesis. Yeast cells are better suited for rapid haematogenous dissemination, but together with hyphal elements they are also capable of breaching epithelial and endothelial barriers to cause extensive organ damage. 4 During the infectious process, yeast cells and hyphae may encounter different microenvironments within the host. At acidic pH, C albicans grows mostly in the yeast form; at an alkaline pH, it grows primarily in the filamentous form. 2, 6, 7 Gastric acid provides an effective barrier to most microorganisms (normal gastric pH values are 1–3.5). In contrast, achlorhydria and the use of H2 antagonists, which raise gastric pH, have been found to be associated with a higher proportion of invasive gastric candidiasis. 17 Similarly, although the skin is relatively inhospitable to fungal growth, 18 the experimental increase of skin surface pH yields more pronounced cutaneous candidiasis in human volunteers. 19"

Posting those excerpts for others also who asked me the last time we had this acid/alkaline/candida discussion. As this study shows acidity keeps candida in its non invasive yeast form where as in an alkaline PH it changes to hyphal fungal form which can penetrate and damage tissues.

But I thought antibiotics creates an acidic environment?

clinical acidosis occurs at 7.35 ph. Many are walking around at 7.39 or 7.38 and 7.37 that are not officially with acidosis but over acid just the same. Here is an example of what happens for an 8 oz coke to be neutralized it takes 32 glasses of 9.5 ph water. Nobody does that or is even aware how much damage one coke can do.

Nah thats the common acid/alkaline myths, they do kill off the beneficial lactic acid bacteria.
