Alkalizing medical journals for those with skeletal issues

Alkalize for Life's site listed many of the medical journals supporting the idea of an alkalized diet

These are for those with skeletal issues.

The acid-base hypothesis: diet and bone in the Framingham Osteoporosis Study
A diet rich in alkaline forming foods supports bone health and has been proven by numerous human studies.

Acid-base imbalance and the skeleton.
An overly acidic diet leads to the constant requirement for buffering of these acids in the body, which leads to the weakening of the bones as bone resorption takes place, with the calcium being lost from the bones to help buffer these acids. Even a slight decrease in metabolic acidosis leads to bone loss and risk of fracture

Alkaline mineral water lowers bone resorption even in calcium sufficiency: alkaline mineral water and bone metabolism
Alkaline water supports bone strength by eliminating bone resorption (weakening) and is especially more powerful than acidic water, even if the acidic water contains calcium. Thus supporting the hypothesis that acidic substances don’t necessarily promote bone health even if they contain calcium (i.e. milk).
The Effect of the Alkali Load of Mineral Water on Bone Metabolism: Interventional Studies
Alkaline water and diet inhibit bone resporption (bone weakening). Alkaline water is specifically show in this research to outperform acidic water.

Treatment with Potassium Bicarbonate Lowers Calcium Excretion and Bone Resorption in Older Men and Women
An acidic diet leads to weaker bones, but consuming alkaline minerals (sodium bicarbonate) and increasing the alkali content of the diet can slow bone loss and lead to stronger bones in older adults
