I have no idea how or why anyone would want to inject baking soda or anything else. That sound like a ridiculous idea. We take a quarter teaspoon a day in four to eight ounces of filtered water. We've been doing this for some time now, and the health benefits to us have been tremendous.

pharmaceutical injectable bicarb in premeasured syringes of 50 ml used to be a standard in acls. is no longer a part of it. no one else would inject it.

Re: First Experience Crewing

I've noticed that baking soda is rapidly becoming the latest craze as a cure-all. I was recently talking to a sort of survivalist type - he lived in a floating community of like minded steel boat owners. He was extolling the virtues of baking soda and an alkaline body as an anti-cancer agent. He also claimed to have four PhD's (by age 40).

I've done exactly zero research on the subject but any time I hear about a particular substance having magical curative and longevity powers my scatological radar goes into overdrive.

Usually I hear such stories from elderly married women.

George Burns, when he was in his late 90's and still performing, had a great line. He'd light up one of his trademark stogies and say;

"My doctors have been telling me for years that I have to quit smoking these things, but they're all dead now."

Moderation in all things, including moderation.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: First Experience Crewing

I am still doing research on the baking soda supplement, but it sounds good to me and will also recommend to my aging parents whom have joint problems and often get colds- worth a try.

The thing that surprises me are the reports from some posters that report taking a total of 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda a day could kill you. I find that a little hard to believe. I mean look at all the chemicals and additive we take in a day. Drinking a soda must make your body very acidic and yet we seemed to chemically balance it out. I would think if our bodies were so sensitive to acids and alkalies that we would be dropping off like flies. You think about it though the human body (or any living animal) is a pretty amazing thing to keep working after all that is put into it- a high tech chemical lab.

If you see my postd stopping if a few weeks it means I was overcome by baking soda...
