- Here's Some Background Regarding The Food Charts Which Follow -
 
• • • • •

Items are listed according to several considerations:
  
                                       
• First:  Consideration of food-combining techniques. Eating foods which do not combine well with one another in your stomach will lead to fermentation and putrefaction (toxins) in your digestive system. Toxins can be the basis for disease. Consideration of food-combining should become a permanent part of your eating habits;

• Second:  Consideration of the food's pH FORMING value. Not whether or not a food is acidic or alkaline in itself, but rather how the food reacts with internal chemistry to RESULT IN an acid or alkaline outcome;

• Third:  Consideration of the food's effect on the systemic yeast-type fungal infection called Candiasis, which is prevalent in today's population;

• Fourth:  Consideration of a food's fat content;

• Fifth:  Consideration of a food's purine content (a metabolic by-product of protein);

• Sixth:  Consideration of the level of pesticide/chemical/toxins used in food production;

• Seventh:  Consideration of a food's allergy/intolerance/hypersensitivity causation. In other words, does a food generally cause a reactivity consideration.

As to food allergies:

The astute reader may wonder, "Why-in-the-world does mango fall into the cashew family?" "What could almonds possibly have to do with the plum family?" etc.

Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby [Diet Wise p.165], speaking of allergies and genetic intolerance, explains: "One very important piece of information you need before tackling one for yourself is an understanding of "food families." These are groups of plants... that are related chemically in such a way that the body treats them as being similar from the metabolic point of view; in other words, if you react to one member of a group you are quite likely (but not absolutely certain) to react to others of the same family."

For those of you looking for the Animal Protein & Dairy group, You Won't Find It Here!

Through long and intensive study, I have come to know that eating animals and
animal byproducts are simply bad for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

Fish (including shell fish), Meat (and Dairy), and Poultry (including eggs), 
have high amounts of hormones / steroids / growth stimulants / antibiotics / 
medicines / tranquilizers / preservatives / pesticides / chemicals / toxins / etc. 
Animals either ingest (as in fish or shellfish filtering polluted water, 
or as in cows eating polluted grass) or get injected with, these poisons. 
Then you eat the animals.
Where do you think the poisons wind up?

Additionally, I suggest that you consider the ethical ramifications of killing animals.
