Adapted from The Acid-Alkaline Diet, by Christopher Vasey, N.D. (Inner Traditions, 2003).
"Because of factors like diet and stress, many people in industrialized nations are too acidic, and so we are afflicted with health problems that run the gamut from minor skin irritations to depression, chronic fatigue and back pain to arthritis, ulcers, and osteoporosis."

*Cauliflower is loaded with nutrients that are essential for keeping the immune system strong. One study found that eating just four servings of cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli or cauliflower, a week slashed the risk of dying from ANY medical cause by 26%! (From "The Doctors Book of Food Remedies," page 149).
*Psoralens in raw and cooked parsnip root by GW Ivie, DL Holt, and MC Ivey: Parsnip root contains three photoactive, mutagenic, and photocarcinogenic psoralens in a total concentration of about 40 parts per million. These chemicals are not destroyed by normal cooking procedures (boiling or microwave); thus humans are exposed to appreciable levels of psoralens through the consumption of parsnip and possibly other psoralen-containing foodstuffs. The toxicologic consequences to man of such exposure may be speculated on the basis of medicinal and laboratory studies, but epidemiologic data are not available.
*Ginger can decrease blood clotting and should not be taken by people with bleeding disorders.
