San Francisco Chiropractor -I made a comment today on a blog posting I read on Osteoporosis. The article is basically a summation of the existing mainstream medical point of view. The article is well written but leaves out what some consider to be the primary cause of osteoporosis, animal protein. Animal protein (meat, chicken, cheese, milk, etc) is very acidic. The body is always working to maintain the proper acid/alkaline balance, or blood pH (7.4).
The typical American diet is very rich in Animal protein. So, when we consume too much, as the typical person does every day, the body becomes acidic. The body then leeches calcium from it's own bones in order to maintain proper blood pH. Over time this can lead to Osteoporosis.
