An Explanation For The Reverse Side
This complete chart is the key to a rational, scientific diet. You need not study food chemistry or be
concerned about what you eat if you follow these instructions and the chart on the reverse side.
Science has divided foods, like chemicals, into two classes:
Alkaline-forming, or practically safe foods to eat, and
Acid-forming, the somewhat dangerous foods to eat.
