"However, this too turns out to be incorrect; the paper points out that studies of high-meat protein intakes either show no overall effect on net calcium balance and a higher animal protein intake is actually associated with increased bone mineral density; as well studies show a negative association between vegetable protein and done mineral density."

Should be "bone".

I've read this article and see that you accept the "net alkaline" position for many fruits and vegetables. It seems that the source for this thinking is a study called "Potential Renal Acid Load of Foods and its Influence on Urine pH"

It seems from the abstract that a model was used to generate the results, not actual PH testing. I'm wondering if you've been able to read this study
in the full text?

The reason I ask is because I've also read from a gout specialist that he finds fruits described as net alkaline from the paper (and subsequently republished in various forms) can trigger gout in his patients. According to him this indicates a lowering of PH which causes the uric crytals to preciptiate out in the synovial fluid.

So I'm really wondering if the net alkaline theory is really an untested one?

I understand regardless, from your paper, that in terms of bone loss that protein consumption is not a problem.

Edit: I did find some further information on tests of PH theory:

This seems to support it. Also read another one that can't find which showed a correlation between the theory and fact.

However does this prove that the fruit made the body/blood more alkaline? Consider if the body was releasing stored buffers against against the low PH of citric acidic foods.
Would not an excess of this be excreted and seen as alkaline?
