What are the upper and lower limits of the pH of blood in
a normal person? What causes fatality due to pH change?
Humans have a very narrow range of pH in their blood. It ranges from 7.35 to

symptoms. The reason it affects us is that it interferes with the way your
enzyme systems function. Recall that enzymes become denatured at acidic or
basic pH's. Even a small change in pH affects its ability to function
