As you know, the food that you eat has a powerful impact on your health. Eating certain foods changes your PH levels. Some foods cause your body to produce more acid, which is harmful.
An alkaline diet helps lower the acidity allowing your body to function well. It is known to help in weight loss and preventing the risk of cancer. Some studies have shown that cancer thrives well in an area with a low PH (a highly acidic environment). Eating high alkaline foods and limiting acidic foods makes your body a poor environment for cancer (less acidic).
