    Thanks for your intriguing article. One other problem is that mesothelioma is generally the result of the breathing of dust from asbestos fiber, which is a extremely dangerous material. It can be commonly seen among personnel in the structure industry that have long exposure to asbestos. It can be caused by living in asbestos protected buildings for long periods of time, Genetics plays a huge role, and some folks are more vulnerable for the risk as compared with others.|

  15. pH Strips are a great way as long as you follow the instructions on when to measure you’re pH. These are some good ones here.

    I am confused, the medical field says your body balances it’s own PH levels ?

    Watermelon is not mentioned but tofu is! If I can see that in a couple of minutes, needless to say that there’s something wrong with this post.

  23. Well, we would have to disagree with you. The title says 74 alkaline foods and all the foods in the list are alkaline. Just because you don’t see one alkaline food that you know is alkaline does not make the list wrong!

    Tofu is off the list for any suggestion if it is not fermented, it is very processed and harmful . If we are trying to get people healthy, we should know the different. Suggesting watermelon can be very beneficial to the health. That is my opinion
