Baking Soda Uses
PC.Luis Quiroz Ravines
Baking soda uses really began in the 1920s and by 1930 it was widely publicized as a "proven medical agent." But it was in 1846 that Dr. Austin Church and John Dwight began manufacturing and selling baking soda as we know it today.
Sodium bicarbonate throughout history has been used as a baking agent because when mixed with an acid the bicarbonate makes bubbles and causes carbon dioxide causing the dough to rise.
The bicarbonate allows to regulate PH allowing a substance to remain balanced, neither very acid nor very alkaline, ie its main function is to neutralize the pH of an acidic or alkaline substance.
Another characteristic of sodium bicarbonate is to retard changes in PH balance, this feature allows sodium bicarbonate to neutralize acid odors and maintain a neutral PH of water in the laundry by increasing the energy of a detergent. This simple reaction has long-range effects on deodorization and cleaning tasks. But the uses of baking soda go beyond cleaning and eliminating odors, in fact, it also plays an important role in health.
Baking soda uses are very wide, in the field of cleaning, bicarbonate is a harmless alternative to replace so many cleaning products that produce chemical reactions with harmful effects on health and potentially can cause cancer, asthma and other diseases; in addition, contaminate the environment.

Dr. Tulio Simoncini is an Italian oncologist who has been treating cancer patients for 20 years using a method based on baking soda. His theory is that cancer is produced by a rapidly mutating fungus that only dies in a highly alkaline environment that he creates with baking soda.
Simoncini, says that bicarbonate is very effective, harmless and should be adopted around the world.
He says that he has successfully treated hundreds of cases and that the fastest way to eliminate a tumor is to put it in contact with bicarbonate as close as possible, for example by applying enemas through the rectum, showers to the uterus and vagina, oral administration to the digestive tract, or by using catheters in the arteries for internal organs.
He states that it is very important to treat each case with the proper dose. Thirst and weakness are the most important side effects. On his website, he has extensive information on his method of treating cancer with sodium bicarbonate.
Despite his successes, Simoncini has many detractors around the world, especially oncologists who do not accept his method.
