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.
