thanx for the post. Interesting how the kindneys can filter out an abundance of excess bicarbonate (alkaline) but are limited in their ability to filter acids by the level of H+ and bicarbonate production due to their metabolism. 0.5% of body mass has to produce enough bicarbonate to counter balance all of the acidifying food we eat. No wonder this system gets over run for so many of our big mac and fries friends. Here is another site that I'm still reading through (piles and piles of information on digestion) but so far it looks good. Later, Mike
