"Dear Kurma, I have enjoyed your recipes over the years. My sister and I are recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. We are young with children. We were told to follow a mostly alkaline diet to prevent recurrence of the cancer. Do you have an acid/alkaline food list? Thankyou for your great recipes and have a nice day. Sincerely, J."
