Acidosis can lead to a variety of health problems. One of the most talked-about risks associated with acidosis is that of osteoporosis. What happens, in the case of acid and osteoporosis, is that minerals are taken out of the bones by the body in order to balance…

If your pH is too acidic, you’ll experience a number of negative symptoms—some of which are so common in today’s world that acidosis ought to be considered a pandemic.
