Scientists Refute Claims Circulating Online That Alkaline Diet Help Cure Coronavirus

The Claim that an Alkaline diet will help treat Coronavirus is not true.

Historically, there’s been a serious lack of evidence surrounding natural medicines.

For one, it’s been difficult to secure the funding review the health effects of fruits and herbs.

The United States is a very pharmaceutical-driven society, so that’s where the priority has historically been.

There is not currently a cure for COVID-19. The aim of treatment is to manage and reduce symptoms until you’ve got recovered.

False claims and misinformation about coronavirus cures have circulated social media few months back, as people search for hope and excellent news during the pandemic.

The viral claim about alkaline diets – eliminating foods that are high in acidity to change the body’s pH levels, has on various occasions shared, and has also debunked multiple times.

You all recall advice that was circulating, with the title;

Advice From Inside Isolation Hospitals, We Can Do At Home

Where the Medicines that are taken in isolation hospitals were listed.

1. Vitamin C 1000

2. Vitamin E (E)

3. From 10:00 11:00 AM ning in the sunshine for 15-20 minutes.

4. Egg meal once a day

5. We take a rest sleep minimum of 7-8 hours

6. We drink 1.5 liters of water daily

7.All meals should be warm (not cold). And that’s all we do in the hospital to strengthen the immune system.

Note that the pH of coronavirus varies from 5 to 8,5

Therefore, all we have to do to eliminate the virus is to consume more alkaline foods above the acidity level of the virus.

Such as:

Banana

Green lemons – 99.9 pH

Yellow Lemon – 82 pH

Avocado 15.6 pH

Garlic 132 pH

Manga – 8.7 pH

Tangerine – 85 pH

Pineapple – 12.7 pH

Watercress – 227 pH

Orange- 9.2 pH

How to know that you are infected with corona virus?

1. Itchy Throat

2. Dry Throat

3. Dry Cough

4. High Temperature

5. Shortness Of Breath

6. Loss Of Smell

And lemon with warm water eliminates the virus at the beginning before Do not keep this information to yourself Provide it to all your family and If you notice the post cited research from the Journal of Virology from the American Society for Microbiology.

Though an article about a coronavirus and pH was in the journal in April 1991.

And the abstract clarifies that the study was about a different coronavirus, the coronavirus mouse hepatitis virus Type 4, or MHIV4.

The journal doesn’t claim that the MHV4 virus has a specific pH level or range. Rather, the study looks at what happens when mice or rat cells infected with MHV4 at pH levels ranging from 5.5 to 8.5.

The idea behind the benefits of an alkaline diet claim is that increasing the body’s pH levels will create an environment that’s deadly to the virus. That is incorrect.

According Donald Schaffner, a food science specialist, said;

“These pH values for these foods are completely wrong,” and people can eat these foods if they want, but the best way to prevent getting sick is to stay away from other people

According to Sarah Stanley, Associate Professor of Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology at the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health.

Said;

“A virus itself does not have a pH,”.

“Eating a healthy and balanced diet supports immunity and can be helpful for fighting off infections. However, there is no evidence that consuming alkaline foods specifically is beneficial,”

According to AP’S Assessment;

False. A virus does not have a pH level. Eating a diet made up of alkaline foods will not prevent someone from being infected with COVID-19 since the body’s pH levels cannot be changed through diet.

To reduce the risk of infection or spread of COVID-19, members of the public are to adhere to the following hand and respiratory hygiene measures:

* Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or used an Alcohol based sanitiser, if no water and soap available.

* Use non-medical face mask/covering for all persons while in public spaces.

* Practice no touch greetings

* Maintain atleast 2 meters 6ft physical distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing and sneezing.

* Avoid crowded spaces.

* Adhere to National and State Directives
