Hmmm because this is not a debate forum I am not allowed to express my conclusions or my disagreement with these said conclusions yours or otherwise! Are we to take any study posted as the word! I dont understand your objection this is still a discussion forum! And I dont understand if you are knowledgable in ph balancing you would understand my addendum to the study! Studies are known for thier one sided agendas and thier lack of completeness in the way they are set up! I also never said what the qualities of the veggies used in the study where ,I was just making a comparison!
