I guess there's a living example of a high acid load diet without consequences. As with pretty much everything, there always seems to be more than one factor contributing to the overall issue.
There are lots of studies showing a high prevelance of Osteoporosis in Inuits with traditional diets. Of course there link may not be directly related to dietry acidosis however as you say, they seem healthy in many other ways.
I guess the inevitable answer to this question is you can never eat too many leafy greens. In the mean time, i wont worry too much about pH.
