Dr, Eric L. Matteson may be right when he says that body-wide inflammation affects the blood-vessel lining too. It is interesting to note that in 1858 Richardson published the results of extensive experiments on dogs in which the injection of large quantities of lactic acid, intraperitoneally, was followed by severe joint involvement. The condition of the joints was similar to that seen in acute arthritis, and Richardson suggested that the arthritic syndrome was due to an accumulation of lactic acid in the body. This theory found further support in 1877, when Foster reported that the administration of lactic acid by mouth to two diabetic patients resulted in painful and swollen joints. The pain and swelling persisted as long as the lactic acid administration was continued and disappeared promptly after the acid was discontinued. These early experiments were apparently never repeated or extended but they have exerted some influence in the formation of hypotheses regarding the disease.(The alleged role of lactic acid in arthritis and rheumatoid conditions, F . A Cajori et al., Arch Intern Med. 1924;34(4):566-572.)
This paper strengthen my thoughts placed in the article “Old experiments with rabbits and dogs provide powerful evidence for the Acidity Theory of Atherosclerosis” where was shown that acid-fed rabbits and dogs may develop atherosclerotic lesions, published in July 13, 2010 at http://aciditytheory.blogspo t.com/2010/07/old-experimen ts-with-rabbits-and-dogs.ht ml
