"Too much protein in your diet can create an acidic environment
in your body which can leach calcium from your bones.
When we take in too much protein the acid level goes up...which also causes disease.
We need to keep our bodies balanced in alkaline and acid. Once it gets out of balance...
meaning too much acid, the body does what it can to neutralize the acid (to get it back in balance).
The way it does this, is to take calcium from the bones which will help neutralize the acid within the body."
Note: For more info, read up on acid vs. alkaline books...some of them have a chart that rates what foods are acidic and which ones are alkaline.
