(NaturalNews) Drink your milk has been a common adage to build healthy bones, but it turns out, it's just wrong. Milk actually contributes to an acidic environment in the body, and acidic environments in the body actually create weak bones and create an optimal environment for disease.

"How does it do this?," you might ask. Essentially, our blood needs to remain at a certain pH; otherwise, it will cause problems in the body. That pH is slightly alkaline and right around 7.36. The problem is that most foods in standard diets are acidic, and this means that people become acidic from consuming these foods.

Commonly consumed, highly acidic foods include meat, dairy (including milk), processed foods, soft drinks, and sugared snacks; these are the worst offenders for creating acidic people.

Raw fruit and vegetables are alkaline forming in the body; they have an effect that raises our pH to a more alkaline state. But most people eat way too much on the first list, and much too little of what's on the second list, and they do this for years on end.

When the blood starts to become acidic, the body needs to adjust.

To adjust to a more alkaline state, the body pulls the alkaline mineral calcium from your bones. By robbing calcium from your bones, your pH can become more alkaline which helps with your body's immediate problem, but for your bones, it creates longer term problems.

In addition, numerous health problems are associated with having an acidic diet and body.

Robert O. Young tells us in The pH Miracle, that just about all health problems stem from being acidic. This is because parasites, bad bacteria, viruses, and candida overgrowth - all of which are the root causes of what we give thousands of disease names - thrive in acidic environments. But those problems don't do well in an alkaline environment.

In fact, it's been found that cancer doesn't do well in an alkaline environment, and is most often found in bodies with a pH around 4 or 5, which is highly acidic. The fact that forty percent of the population is expected to have a problem with cancer is very telling about the acidic nature of people these days, and the problems with our standard diets.

Soft drinks, just so you know, have a pH of between 2.4 and 4.

On the pH scale 7 is neutral, and anything above 7 is alkaline; anything below 7 is acidic. pH is essentially a measure of the oxygen to hydrogen; substances and bodies with more oxygen than hydrogen will be on the alkaline side; whereas, those with more hydrogen than oxygen fall on the acidic side. Pesticides and chemicals in our foods and environment are also acidic.

Dealing specifically with the bones, the robbing of calcium means weak bones are created over time. We regularly see this in our culture as after about 50 or 60 years of acidic dietary habits, bones break easily and osteoporosis is common. These are exactly the problems you'd expect to see after years of consuming a diet that's dominantly acidic, and they are exactly what we do see.

If you're wondering where to get your calcium, now that you know that milk isn't helping your bones, the answer is green leafy vegetables. Green leafy vegetables provide an abundant source of calcium that is bio-available, meaning that it's easy for your body to absorb. The calcium in milk wasn't very easy for your body to absorb anyway.

About the author

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.

Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them.
Here's a little from the upcoming book...
In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters.
A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them."
Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them.
In Numbers 1:1 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old.
In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name.
Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased...
In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean.
