The partially blind, hairless, wrinkly, cold-blooded mammals were good candidates for the study because of their unique insensitivity to acid-induced pain.
Inflammatory disorders, such as arthritis, are normally associated with acidosis, scientists say
Acidosis - A medical condition in which the acid-base balance in the blood plasma is disturbed in the direction of excess acidity, the pH falling below 7.35.
Over acidity, which can become a dangerous condition that weakens all body systems, is very common today. It gives rise to an internal environment conducive to disease, as opposed to a pH-balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease.

Although I don't have time to get you sources, I can tell you that there is mounting evidence suggesting that it has more to do with inflammation, caused by high-carb diets, and reactions to wheat lectins and gluten. And in the case of gout it's more closely tied to insulin resistance and fructose consumption.
