First, i respect you for at least trying here, that's what counts. The problem is, please make sure your info is for the most part correct. While
you are at least trying, disinforming others SLOWS DOWN the proccess of research.
I just got out of a bio test yesterday, and chem exam today, and so far from reading through this topic, i was just shocked. Most of the stuff you
posted was really far off. if you brose the chem stuff at wikipedia, you can learn a lot. However, i'm not one of those people that "think they
know everythign" type of things. I know what i know, and i know that i don't know everything, but i do know that i know some things
Your basis for this research is that the acid creates a mucous, preventing nuterients from being obsorbed? Well, first, there are special cells in
your stomach and small intenstine.
Your stomach is used to break up proteins etc into smaller molecules through the use of the enzyme pepsin. one cell in your somach release HCL, one
cell releases pepsinigen, the low pH enviornment activates pepsinigen into pepsin, which breaks up the proteins
ALMOST nothign is aborbed through your stomach lining, save for some alcohols and maybe some organic materials, aspirin etc. the food then goes to
the upper intestines, where other enzymes break it down further, and it is absorbed into your blood from there.
Here's the problem though. Your stomach and intestine both have mucous clels that always are producing mucous....it helps protect/ine the walls.
They need this mucous, and it does NOT prevent the nutrients from being absorbed.
yes, there's an enzyme in the onion, when it's cut it reacts to help form a certain acid, which breaks down into another acidic gas, the gas gets in
your eyes and does cause a very very mild sulfuric acid concentration. VERY low though. Adding acid to your stomach/body is not going to do anything
to help cure cancer, unless it's skin cancer and your burning it off.
Your stomach acid is MUCH stronger than the mild H2S04 that eating onions would produce. I just don't see where you're going with this. I'd
probably suggest looking at it from antoher angle.
And the increase in bowl movements is caused by eating excess of any vegetable. your body can't really break down the cellulose until it gets into
your large intestine, where it's just crapped out =p
I don't have much time right now, but i'll be glad to help you with what i know later in more detail. once again, i'm praising you for trying
here, it's more than most peopel care about.
However, be careful about where you get your information from, good luck.
