IS THIS SAFE

  1. Eating Baking soda, laundry starch, excessive ice etc along with other unusual items is caled PICA. It is often an indication of anemia in women, and can be detected by a simple blood test. Ask your friend to discuss this with her health care provider as too much baking soda can cause metabolic problems with the kidneys. It is c nothing to be ashamed of and common across all cultures.

    I HAVE A FRIEND THAT HAS A HABIT OF EATING BAKING SODA. SHE EATS ABOUT 1-2 TABLESPOONS A DAY AND I AM NOT SURE IF THIS IS A SAFE HABIT FOR HER, AND SINCE I AM JUST A NURSING STUDENT. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED.
