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
