Chris Kresser has a free e-book that addresses this topic. I just saw it and haven't yet looked at it, but it's probably worth checking out: http://my.chriskresser.com/ebook/heartburn-gerd/

I think the following article by Joseph Mercola, D.O. is helpful in pointing out the many factors that must be considered: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/09/11/alkaline-water-interview.aspx
He makes some excellent points that I've seen corroborated in the scientific literature, especially regarding antioxidation. Our bodies function by performing many oxidative reactions. These are required, not "bad." Constant antioxidant action from water or supplements is not conducive to proper body function. As pointed out in this article, intravenous vitamin C is effective against cancer due to its acidity. From what I've read in studies, when used in such high doses, the C isn't at all acting as an antioxidant, but as a pro-oxidant, and that's what makes it so effective at killing cancer.
Another point (and sorry to refute what you had to say, Gladys) is that people who live in areas with a high level of magnesium in their drinking water suffer fewer heart attacks than those with low magnesium (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18401109), though this is still being debated. However, findings in some parts of the world have been strong, which would contradict the idea that our bodies view inorganic minerals as toxins.
In general, our bodies require a carefully orchestrated balance among all things: oxidation/antioxidation, inflammation/anti-inflammation, alkalinity/acidity, etc. So long-term bombardment of any extreme is likely to lead to imbalances.
Most of the "benefits" noted for ionized alkaline water come directly from the multi-level marketing apparatus selling the equipment. This doesn't mean that there aren't any benefits to be derived, but it does mean that one should look much, much more deeply to get a balanced sense of what such a product has to offer.

Very interested in your topic here. I have had many concerns and questions regarding cholesterol for quite some time. I am very much in the learning phase and I found this book to be an excellent source to unravel the mess of confusion! I hope it comes as a help to you. Cholesterol Clarity: What the HDL is wrong with my numbers? By: Jimmy Moore with Eric C. Westman, MD.
To good health and answers!
Hi there! I did an alkaline water cleanse/ fast once and this is what I learned then:
Acidic Water/ RO Mineral Water:
-natural minerals (inorganic state) do not help assimilate body function and our body treats it as toxic matter
-aggravates acidity levels to acidic foods and impairs digestion
-does not eliminate free radicals
-brings body to higher acidic state which can lead to disease
RO- Alkaline Water/ Mineral Water (in alkaline state):
-body absorbs minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, which are in ionic state
-helps digest acidic foods better
-eliminates free radicals in the body
-has lower oxidation potential
-has pH of 8.5-9.5 and maintains body in healthy state
So in my opinion, yes, alkaline water is better!

Thank you, Jodi and Jada!
I had some delicious leftover wild salmon and broccoli this morning and loved how quickly it all came together. I'm not a morning person, so anything I can make/reheat before I'm fully functional is great.
My body has been loving the egg breakfasts, but a different source of protein is appreciated. (Jodi, I've heard/read several philosophies on egg intake, from 4 to 15 a week. After three consecutive mornings of two eggs, I just felt like my system could use a little variation and might have reached a temporary limit .
Anyway, thanks for broadening my horizon. It's funny that sauteeing greens didn't even occur to me, just because I didn't classify greens as 'breakfast food'... I'm learning...
