The True ‘pH’ of Foods

The Alkaline and Acidic Food Chart

Robert O Young’s CPT, MSc, DSc, PhD, Naturopathic Practitioner shares his work, research and discoveries on the ‘true pH values’ of many alkaline and acidic foods. Dr. Young’s ‘true pH values’ of foods and liquids are listed in his book Sick and Tired. The charts below are a simplified version, based upon testing the whole food before burning the food at high temperatures and then measuring the remaining mineral ash. This is critical to understand, because the FDA determines ‘pH values’ by burning the food at 5000 degrees F to simulate the effects of digestion in the stomach when it combines with the hydrochloric acid. All that remains for determining a ‘pH value’ is a mineral ash, without the consideration of ALL acidic or alkaline components, such as the water, sugar and enzyme content. Thus, this procedure used by the FDA for testing common foods gives a ‘false pH value’. This is the reason you cannot rely upon the ‘pH values’ of the FDA food charts.

Conversely, Dr. Young’s method of testing ‘pH values’ includes all the acidic and alkaline components that are not evaluated by the FDA, such as water, sugar and enzymes. Because these components are included in determining the ‘pH values’, they may be considered more accurate than the ‘pH values’ provided by the FDA.

The following is a simplified version of the “Alkaline-Acid Food Chart” that was taken from the revised and updated pH Miracle book (2010). To find a more comprehensive list of specific ‘pH values’ of the foods listed below, refer to Dr. Young’s book, Sick and Tired.

Twelve Good Reasons to Say NO To EGGS and CHICKEN!

Next time you consider eating a chicken egg and making it part of your body think about the following:

1) The main purpose of a chicken egg is to create a new chicken.

2) Eggs come from a chicken’s period.

4) The ingestion of a chicken egg activates the immune response for 3 to 5 hours in order to clean-up the toxic mess.

5) According to Dr. Livingston Wheeler, a medical doctor and cancer research scientist, eggs contain the progenitor cryptocide which causes cancer.

6) Eggs are one of my top 10 acidic foods to never eat. This includes the egg white or plasma.

7) Chickens do not have a urinary tract system so the absorption of acidic waste or urine may be pushed out into the connective tissue or muscle. But that’s what makes them so juicy! Enjoy eating chicken urine with your chicken period.


8) Chicken flesh when ingested produces 4 cancer causing poisons of nitric, uric, sulphuric and phosphoric acids, if not eliminated via the four channels of elimination may cause sickness and disease.

9) All the scientific reasons NOT to eat EGGS, CHICKEN, BEEF, PORK, TURKEY OR FISH FLESH! SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FLESH AND EGG EATING FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
