According to a reliable source, I should be very concerned about the following table:
Sulfuric acid is among the most powerful and potentially harmful acids known. Get even a dilute quantity in your eyes and you will suffer serious burns and possibly loss of eyesight. Ingest it and you can sustain fatal injury to the mouth and esophagus. Sulfuric acid's potent tendency to react with other compounds is one of the reasons that it is used in industrial processes like petroleum refining. Sulfuric acid is also a component of the harsh atmosphere of Venus.Given that the amounts in the table are for 100g of protein in the food, eggs top the list followed close behind by pork! Yikes!! Battery acid for breakfast?
OK, yeah, I'm picking on Dr. Heart Scan Davis again for his latest offering: Battery acid and oatmeal . Sure is funny what you'll come up with when seeking to demonize a single food! To the good doc,
Know what food is the most potent source of sulfuric acid in the body? Oats.
Yes: Oatmeal, oat bran, and foods made from oats (you know what breakfast cereal I'm talking about) are the most potent sources of sulfuric acid in the human diet.
Really? 2 large eggs contain 12g protein = approx 9.6 mEq SAA, while an equal caloric (140) serving of oatmeal contains just under 5.5g protein = approx 4.5 mEq SSA. Less than half.
Pass the battery acid!
