    Food pH and Bone Health
    megmo84 posted:
    Food pH is a hot topic among the osteoporosis community. Low-acid diets are reported to preserve bone health. I would appreciate the input of others on the issue and any credible resources you have to offer.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks so much for the informative article.

    Any thoughts on the pH testing of urine? This approach seems a bit obsessive to me. I fear that sometimes we become so caught up in fixing our condition that quality of life is lost in the process.
