  1. tomatoes are acidic, as is cola. Cheese is slightly acidic (lactic acid), has a pH about 5.5

    I am amazed this woman has lived 55 years on this diet. It won't last much longer.

  2. This just adds to the information provided by Bob Pursley.
    pH<7 = acid
    pH=7 = neutral
    pH>7 = basic (alkaline)
