please read the page on salt and the link on sodium bicarbonate at the top of this page. Hopefully they will explain how to use these sodium compounds healthfully.

baking soda may alkalise the system but sodium is salt and bad for anyone with high blood pressure and cholestorol, how would you get around that?
