of pH 7.3 to 7.45. This process is called
When we drink a popular soft drink like colas,
which has an acidic pH of 2.5, the bloodstream does not lower itself
to that level.
sugars and other elements in the drink are processed by the blood
into acid wastes: some are eliminated, and others are stored at
various locations in the body.
WHAT CAUSES ACID WASTE
Bad diet can cause acid wastes to be stored in the body.
A meat and potato diet, for example, can cause the
body to become more acidic.

fried food, soft drink colas, sucrose and other sugars build up acid
salts in the body.
Often these deposits by
having to be stored away from blood flow, can remain in the body for decades.
Stress, both mental and physical, can also form
acid deposits in the body. Mental stress can make you feel

completely established, there exists a school of thought in
called psychosomatics, which maintains that your mental state will influence health.
As we have said before, the body uses the bloodstream system to
dispose of wastes; these are removed in liquid form, and are
often deposited in the lungs and kidneys.
If there are too many wastes to handle, they
are deposited in various organ systems, like the heart, or the
pancreas, or the liver, or the colon, or in other locations.
Sometimes these wastes are left on the walls of
arteries, and over the years can spread throughout the body.
The break-down of this disposal process,
especially of acid wastes, is how we define the aging process. To
slow down and reverse this direction, one must begin removing acid
wastes from the body.
