Doc, are you familiar with the work of Dr Robert Young? I get his newletters ... he has and is doing some AMAZING research on alkalinity on his own.
His site and newsletters are "sells pitch" for his products which generally is a turn off for me, BUT I first heard him on an hour plus teleseminar where he stated that every product out there that he'd tested didn't meet his expectation in the labatory so he made ones that did ... not sure if I put him in that list of "company" you're in, but I have his personal permission to repost his stuff too. I don't ask if I don't respect the individual and their obvious belief in what they're preaching!!
