if we have a diet rich in acidy foods, will this come out in our sweat? if it does what conditions could it cause? could you have any form of medical reaction to the acidy sweat or diet, could it corrode your watch/strap?

I do believe that yes this may well be true as I recall my mom had that problem with yellow gold and other metals left everything blueish color oround where it sat on her skin.. She was able to wear white gold and strling without a problem everything else changed her skin to a blueish black color! I think it was said by her doctor that it had something to do with acid..can't be sure I was abot twelve at the time..LOL
