I spent almost 30 years in clinical (medical) research, never heard such claim for Sodium Bicarbonate. May be it is the California culture. But no MD would recommend his patient taking Baking Soda, it is insane. It will affect the electrolyte balance of the body, significant to increase sodium body load, lead edema and high blood pressure.
It really makes no sense. I am pro choice; so I do respect it is your body your choice.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
