It’s not because you don’t have a vagina, it’s because you are an idiot. Sit down and take a seat in the back of class.

Alkaline diets are the biggest grift. You cannot alter your pH anywhere with diet. If you could you would die, because it would mean your kidneys and lungs are not working.

Vaginal pH is controlled by the healthy bacteria, mostly lactobacilli but there are others. Also not affected by *checks notes* GMOs or “acidic” food.

The “doctor” who popularized the alkaline diet was sentenced to 3 years in jail for that grift 

As people are actually harmed by the alkaline diet grift I think it is important to speak out and show these charlatans for what they are.

Cancer patients in particular are targeted by the alkaline diet grift.
