Plant-based pundits love to bloviate about the benefits of eating an "alkaline" diet, but is there any real science to support this? Nope. In this week's edition of Controversial Thoughts (available here and all podcast feeds as well as YouTube) I dig into the acid/alkaline balance and note how adding some fruit to a carnivore diet (= Animal Based diet, voila!) can be beneficial from a urinary pH perspective - which probably also reflects interstitial pH. As I noted in last week's controversial thoughts, infants self-select for a balance of acidic/alkaline foods. Might be something for us to think about as adults, also. #theremembering
