Acidosis has been called the Great American Disease-but why stop at America? Look at England and see the results of this fell disease there ! So it would be better to call it the Disease of Civilization; because that is what it really is. And it is a most terrible disease. Chiefly because it seems rather a harmless thing and people don’t get the scare about it that they do about cancer and tuberculosis and pneumonia and rheumatism and well known maladies like that, but there never was a single case of one of these same diseases that didn’t have its seed planted in the soil of acidosis.
