A-Alkaline-Acid Foods List

In order to maintain the natural body balance
 of 80% alkalinity / 20% acidity (the ratio of planet Earth)
we must consume at least 80% alkaline-ash producing foods.
Foods are listed in diminishing order of
their positive effect (green borders) in replacing alkaline
 reserves based upon a typical serving, i.e.
raw spinach at 556 per 4c is approximately 100 times
more effective than green peas at 5 per 3/4c.
Negative numbers (red borders) denote
a depletion effect upon alkaline reserves.
