    I think you mean the acidy in the tuna is very high?

    This article goes into the whole acid/alkaline and explains it much better than I can.
    So enjoy.

    Or are you talking about something else?

    I will probably die soon then.

    I have heard you should not eat more than 3 fish caught in the Great Lakes in a week. Never anything like that about Tuna.

    I am pretty sure that is a false statement. As stated above I also assume the TS is referring to mercury levels, however I wanted to address this. Many people eat to stay in an alkaline state. Things like greens are important to the ph level of your body. Without getting too in depth what you eat can leave you in an acidic state which causes your body to work harder to keep your blood ph nuetral.

    not so much.

    greens taste good when cooked properly, and they provide some great nutrients, but they in now way alter the ph level of your blood. has anyone ever considered what the ph level of stomach acid is in relation to the food they're eating?

    forgive me, berardi is god around here. ok, you just keep on adding baking soda to your pwo shake that probably also contains 7 fish oil pills, a scoop of greens+ and glutamine. i'm going to go a dig a hole and die of acidosis, just like all the mighty paleo's did (unless they were eaten by dinosaur). if you can find me an actual study that demonstrates long term that your diet can cause body ph levels to be altered, please let me know.
