Acid Life & Alkaline Ash
By Atom Bergstrom
Re: You scoff at the alkaline residue left after digesting certain foods, which is like the ash left after burning wood in a fire, ‘an alkaline ash (residues remaining after LIFE is burnt to a crisp)’. Did you know that before the widespread installation of electricity, people burned wood for heat and light, and they put the ash in their gardens to make them more fertile? The mineral content of specific foods make them akaline- or acid-forming after digestion. Except for iodine, phosphorous, and chlorine, all the other minerals in foods leave an alkaline-forming residue in the blood after digestion, including magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, zinc, manganese, and others.
I’ve been a scofflaw since high school. Maybe reading Plato’s Cave had something to do with it?
Long story short, I’ve been rooting through Plato’s Closet for decades.
You’re confusing cremation with burning, and you’re confusing the blood SERUM with the red blood cells and, most importantly, with the ENTIRE BODY.
When LIFE goes bye-bye, it leaves behind 3 to 10 pounds of ash in a funeral urn, and the bulk of it is from immobile bones with tiny amounts from mobile muscles and nerves.
LIFE is created out of OXYGEN, CARBON, HYDROGEN, and PHOSPHORUS to run the car called “body” with the help of other atomic elements.
It’s EASY to measure pH ANYWHERE in a living person. A Beckman pH meter has been used for that purpose since the 1940s, and scientists have more sophisticated methods today.
Arnold Beckman invented the “acidimeter” in 1935.
DNA is very flexible, thriving from 5 to 9 — a factor of 10,000.
The minerals you mention are alkaline in BLOOD SERUM and FINAL RESIDUE, but that’s not true inside a living body.
Sodium, potassium, and zinc are acidic and anabolic. They help build muscles for the body builder or tumors for the cancer victim, depending on their lifestyles.
Intriguingly, there IS a minuscule amount of consciousness in minerals, notably in TIN, but tin has little use in biology and limited use in medicine.
