I assume you are interested in a low-acid diet and the effects of blood acidity on the skeletal system. Much of the contraversy surrounds the bones and what happens to them in an acidic environment that may leak calcium. Fact or Fiction?
The other question is whether or not fruit is a problem. Lemons are actually considered a alkaline food, busting a common misconception that fruit cause too much acidity in the blood.
"How is that possible that lemon is the most highly alkalizing food? There is more to understand about. Try not to focus on the complex compound of lemon or the sour taste because no one will dispute that it actually contains acid. However, once a person already absorbs the nutrients of lemon, the end product produces alkaline ash or residue (the term used to explain the effect of foods in the body). It oxidizes to form water, inorganic compound and carbon dioxide after digestion that makes it alkaline as the end result."
Instead of advocating for an alkaline diet, I advocate for an anti-inflammatory diet because there is more scientific evidence about how a proper diet can help control inflammation naturally.
Keep eating the food, mostly plants, not too much.
