This is a reply to this whole subject in general, rather than to the above post.
Perhaps there is confusion between mineralization and alkalization. I can see how making sure a person is sufficiently mineralized could lead to them being "alkalized", but I fail to see how drinking ACV can "alkalized" them. But, observing this debate from a neutral position (neither "for" nor "against" ACV), it strikes me that alot of the "cures" attributed to ACV are, in fact, the results of the Placebo Effect in action, because on some websites (perhaps on this one, also...I don't know yet, 'cause I'm new here) ACV is touted as a "miracle" substance and panacea, and is credited with a range of effects that is just not scientifically possible for it to have. There are also some people on other web sites (and again, perhaps on this one, too) that exhibit a truely religious fervor when it comes to promoting the "miraculous" properties of ACV, and become belligerent when it is pointed out to them that their "darling", ACV, cannot possibly be the miracle substance that they believe it is (in any scientific sense). In other words, the "ACV Cure" has all the earmarks of a secular religion: it answers all prayers, it gives people something to believe in, it offers an island of stability in a changing world, its "god", ACV, is accessible and always close-at-hand, and the only thing a person needs to do in order to win this "god's" favor is believe. But it is also a proselytizing religion, in that getting other people to believe is an important way for the "true believers" to reinforce their own beliefs, otherwise doubts start to creep in and ACV starts to lose its miraculous nature.
I am not trying to offend anyone when I make these observations. But the tone of some of the rhetoric of some of the ACV "believers" smacks of fanatasism, and they sometimes answer "doubters" with hostility and abuse rather than with dispassionate, rational argument, and that makes me wonder if that is because they have no real Science to back themselves up with.
