Your Body Must Be Alkaline!
True or False?

When people say:
"You must alkalinize your body."

You can respond with:
"What the heck are you talking about? Everyone knows that a healthy body drastically ranges in pH depending on the organ system and its function!"

(They weren't told this at their MLM meeting where magic water cures every known disease.)

Note: pH refers to acid/alkaline level. The lower the number the more acid. When the stomach is functioning optimally the normal pH is around 1.2 (very acid!!). This is why drinking apple cider vinegar (which is acidic) actually improves digestion.

Blood pH
The pH balance of your blood stays within a very narrow range. If it changes too much you would go into a coma then die. For this reason it is ridiculous to think that any change in your diet will significantly affect your blood pH. If this was the case, we would never have survived as a species (that first cheeseburger would've been the end for all of us).

Btw, checking your urinary and oral pH has nothing to do with blood pH. These numbers can change per meal making the conclusions people draw from them quite silly.

Buffer Systems
There are a handful of buffer systems that constantly adjust the climate of the body. The kidneys, for example, have two very crucial roles in maintaining the pH balance: to reabsorb and regenerate bicarbonate from urine, and to excrete hydrogen ions and fixed acids (anions of acids) into urine. 

Your body adjusts its pH so that you don't have to.

How Food Can Actually Affect pH
If you eat foods that damage your body, and subsequently damage your buffer systems, then you're in trouble. For example, eating a diet high in carbohydrates (especially processed) is associated with diabetes and related kidney dysfunction. If the kidneys are not functioning properly then the acid balance function will be compromised resulting in acidosis (bad). But this is not because the carbohydrate foods are directly changing your pH!

Notice on the chart that fruit is very alkaline but is actually not good for a diabetic because it's high in sugar.

Drinking Alkaline Water
The claims are bogus and founded on false notions. With that said, these people are often experiencing improvements in their health. This could be for many reasons. If they joined a belief system then it could be psychogenic. Positive beliefs are powerful. In practice I come across many bizarre and unfounded ideas but if it helps the patient emotionally, and is not harmful, then I leave it alone. Joining MLMs can be very motivating. A person might start taking better care of themselves, exercise more, eat better, and of course drink more water all of which will significantly improve health.

It is possible that introducing large amounts of alkaline water into the stomach (which is normally acid) creates a compensatory response of the stomach to produce more acid thus improving its function. Digestion would improve short term but because the stomach is stressed it will be followed by a worsening of digestive function.

Cancer Grows in Acid
This is major oversimplification. Cancer is an opportunist and takes root in a compromised system. There are many aspects of that system to consider with each person being unique. Anyone pointing to the one and only factor is likely selling something. 

What to Eat?
The pH of many foods completely changes after digestion as the components hit the blood stream making this chart even more useless. I see great foods above and below the neutral line. Eat a whole foods diet low in processed foods and see a doctor trained in functional medicine as needed.

Building Trust (and How to Lose it)

In a family group trust is an inherent quality. Even when we say that we "don't trust someone to do something" we actually exhibit a sense of trust in our understanding of their character and a sense of their competence and capabilities, which means that we know when to trust that person, within the family group, to actually do something. 

If you often wonder why, within G+ we can form such seamless, frictionless connections with total strangers and develop what have now become long-term relationships with people we have never met consider the three requirements of interpersonal trust: Our ever evolving understanding of a person's competence, benevolence and ability to deliver on a stated promise. 

This paradigm not only explains how trustworthiness is propagated along informal social networks (like G+) but also how it is formed (and lost) in real-world ones. Case in point consider the current EU crisis where the hard bargaining and tough positioning is exactly because trust has been lost: http://goo.gl/rg0YXE and continues to do so in ever-spreading ripples: http://goo.gl/Fonzru.

As in the real-world, so in the digital one, networks that exhibit a high level of trustworthiness become important to the whole because they act as a determinant factor upon who else is or is not trustworthy.

The social component in semantic search leverages these interactions to determine the trustworthiness of news, fresh data and the true importance of websites.

A  region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about 9,000 light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the formation in vast dark clouds, their relatively brief (a few million years) lives, and the eventual destruction in supernova explosions. The diffuse X-ray data detected by Chandra (blue) are likely due to the winds from young, massive stars that are blowing throughout the nebula. Optical data from ESO are shown in orange and yellow.
