4.0 out of 5 stars Different, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health: Restore Your Health by Creating pH Balance in Your Diet: Restore Your Balance by Creating PH Balance in Your Diet (Paperback)
A reader interested in balancing acids and alkalines formed in the body as a result of food metabolism will probably be interested in the competition: Dr Susan E Brown's "The Acid Alkaline Food Guide" (which I've also given 4 stars) and Dr Robert O Young's "The pH Miracle " (just 2). I've given the above 4 because, how ever much confusion there seems to be about whether a food is acidifying or alkalising, at least this one recognises we're all different and tries to deal with that. Unlike Dr Young, who doesn't want us eating fruit except for a treat because of its sugar content, Vasey worries about people who can't cope with foods which taste acidic, ie., most fresh fruits, and recommends sugar-loaded dried fruits, albeit soaked for them. His book is nicely presented and has an index, but I think his is the one that says millet is very acid-forming, which is at variance with all other sources, including my starting point a year ago: Dr Marilyn Glenville's "Osteoporosis, how to prevent, treat and reverse it". Apparently, this is because it contains silica, and, I hope he's wrong!

Because of this sort of confusion, I've ordered the following in the hope of enlightenment:

Dept of Health: Manual of Nutrition (more up to date than a valued Sheila Bingham Dictionary published in 1977)
Holland: Fruit and Nuts, Supplement to the Composition of Food (I am vegan, all but a squeak)
Sharon: Nutrients A-Z, a User's Guide to Food, Herbs etc (a dictionary is an index, great!)
Holford: The Low GL Diet Bible (I think Dr Young is right about sugar, wherever it comes from)
Cairney: The Sprouters Handbook (also inspired by Dr Young - there's nothing like an irritating book, is there?).

Thank you, Amazon.
