>- That is a matter of opinion. Would you ingest a spoonful of Drano in a gallon of water since this is also a hydroxide?
Actually, no, that is Sodium based and would cause serious blood pressure increase. Additionally, Drano does not meet requirements for inclusion in foods. Also, Tht is extreme, It akes years to consume that gallon because you take a tablespoon at a time and dilute it with another gallon of water.
So, this works out to 1 tablespoon for 256 gallons of water. Egaddddsss, at 1 quart a day, that is over 1000 days to consume a single tablespoon of Bakers lime!!!!!
I wonder how much you get from pickle juice which some people drink for heath purposes.
