My guess is that everyone has some pretty good ideas of items to stockpile that would be particularly useful and helpful in an era of shortages. I’m going to nominate baking soda which is a miraculous substance with many uses. Costco sells baking soda in 13 lb bags for less than a dollar a pound. For a few bucks it’s pretty easy to accumulate a significant amount of this useful natural substance.
Let’s start with the most controversial use of baking soda—the cancer treatment of Italian doctor Dr. Tullio Simoncini. You may be interested in reading more about Dr. Simoncini but, briefly, he believes that cancer is caused by a fungus and that baking soda can alkalize the blood creating an environment unfavorable to fungal growth.
This website lists many uses for baking soda which is effective for types of cleaning chores, first aid, acid neutralization and even fire fighting. I use it for toothpaste, as an antacid, to alkalize when I feel a cold coming on and in the bath.
Baking soda is almost a miracle substance. It’s cheap. Right now it’s available. Keeping fifty to one hundred pounds of it on hand is not unreasonable.
