As David pointed out, us O's have not been advised by P D'A to
avoid all acidic foods. (Spinach and horseradish
are both listed as highly beneficial.)
But I want to add that acid/base reactions proceed in
our bodies in a complex manner, and the system is stablized by buffering
systems using weak acids or bases and their related salts.
If you take a 'conventional' nutrition book which lists vitamins and minerals
and cross-check to the foods in the ER4YT diets, it is possible
to select from the ER4YT lists to get all the nutrients. I don't find
anything very extreme about the ER4YT diets at all, that's why I was willing
to try it.
What 'other examples' did you have in mind?
