I seemed to have missed the baking soda part. Sounds interesting. I eat a lot of leafy greens, although hard to get my kids to.

Please tell me the dose and frequency of the baking soda if I and the kids want to give it a try.

Leafy greens are great, too, and we eat a lot of them. Send me a private message and I'll respond with what we do. Don't want this thread to get bumped.

Re: First Experience Crewing

I am sorry that you take this as an insult which I have no intention of. But public safety and well being are my concerns.

Telling others to take baking soda on a daily basis is just plain wrong and irresponsible. I hope others will consult their Physician before embarking this madness.

Rockdawg,
Just a quick google shows baking soda may be good:

A spoonful of baking soda DOES speed you up, say scientists | Mail Online

http://www.ehow.com/how_5616960_drin...da-health.html

Not found anything yet that says it is bad, although I am sure anything in excess is bad.

First of all, I didn't "tell" anyone to do anything. I told others what we were doing and what has worked for us. No need to misrepresent what I posted.

Secondly, physicians are trained in disease management and not nutrition. I would urge anyone and everyone to actively learn what they need to know to keep themselves healthy. All the research that anyone could ever want to read is available to everyone these days. There is no reason why people cannot learn what they need to do on their own.

Re: First Experience Crewing

Hmmm.... I don't know anything about baking soda, except that it must taste like crap. And sorta mildly amused at the idea that a legal background has anything to do with it.

But anyway, I would say that if there's any offense to be had in this thread, it's in the politically charged signature line.

I'm mildly amused at other that just want to come into a forum and flame others, as opposed to being nice to others.

Perhaps you could be so good as to reread the thread and note that I was talking about my expertise in research and discerning facts in my profession.

Thanks for reading and adding to the thread. You are a really charming person, and I'm sure that all that you interact with have noticed that.

Tom,

Isn't worth the aggregation. I ignore him. He is an expert at all master of none. Isn't willing to buy a sailboat, but will make pronouncements on others. Just ignore him.

I will have to research the baking soda data. I have a masters as well i am a certified dietary manager as well as having been in the food industry for over 40 years in many capacities including production. First I have ever heard what you are saying. Feel free to send me info at chef2sail@americaonline.com.

I didn't take you we're telling others what to do , just presenting an alternative. Last I heard we all have the right to choose. ( of course unless we lose that in Nov).

Good write up again on Catalia. We saw some sailboats anchored in some of the coves on the western side of the island when we took the Hummer tour. Those coves must be pretty men with swells running wet to east or NW toSW.

Agreed, Dave. I'll put together what the wife has researched on this and email it to you.
