Now finally you have a good education about diseases, harmful and healing foods,
and you know how to treat your body when there is a physical change; you also know why
common diets fail and you know that constantly gorging with nutritional food (without any
programme or system) is the destruction of human health.
Now you will be shown a table, prepared by the German food researcher Ragnar Berg, a "maniac" of anti-acidity food. According to Berg, in order to maintain health, every time you eat "acid-forming" food (which Ehret calls mucus-forming food), you must immediately introduce "acid-binding" food, rich in mineral salts that can bind acid and dissolve it.
Berg's tables are undoubtedly specialised, almost as much as Ehret's eating pattern, but small flaws render them not completely reliable: minerals are not an absolute necessity to dissolve mucus, but grape sugar is. For this reason you should not take these tables to the letter, but rather for guidance and comparison with Ehret's pattern.
Berg as well is focusing on food quality: nowadays there is not a single fruit pumped by fertilizers, sodium and acids to make them more attractive, but able to transform them from healthy into poisonous. This is because Berg has conducted his research in a country where fertilizers and pesticides are in widespread use (Europe), as opposed to Ehret's study country (America). It follows that people are deceived by the good aspect of fruits, vegetables, bread and other foods, which are actually just processed, refined and manipulated to such an extent as to deprive all their good properties, making them poisonous.
Ehret and Berg did not know each other! They have come to the same conclusions without interfering each other, without ever knowing anything of what one and the other sought. From here you can infer that what they affirm is scientifically proven: any mucus-forming food, once deteriorated in the body, at the same time produces acidity.
