Both alkaline water and the alkaline diet are linked to various health benefits, but is there any solid evidence to support these claims?
In this Causes or Cures episode, Dr. Erin Stair chats with Dr. Tanis Fenton, a researcher who studied the alkaline diet, alkaline water and potential health effects.Through her research, she discovered that health claims made about alkaline water and the alkaline diet are unfounded and make no sense on a basic scientific level.
Dr. Fenton is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Calgary, a Registered Dietitian, Epidemiologist and Evidence Analyst for Dietitians of Canada. She is the Nutrition Research Lead for Alberta Health Sciences.
