Bicarbonate is an essential nutrient and our stomachs, pancreas and kidneys often have to struggle to produce enough – especially as we get older.
Good question would be,
Is it a good idea for cancer patients to help these essential organs?
Older people do have bicarbonate deficiencies and the perfect thing medically speaking to do is to alleviate these deficiencies.
For cancer patients it could make the difference between life and death because cancer patients are universally very acid so the alkalinity provided by bicarbonate is crucial.
