The key words here are "from out past."

Your "evidence" is totally worthless.

Feel free to disregard the testimony of bicarbonates effectiveness
against the flu by a prominent physician during one of the largest
influenza outbreaks of that era.

OK, but tell us who this prominent physician is. Certainly, the one you
speak of is not (and was not) a prominent physician. If I am incorrect,
demonstrate that.

And, then, I will disregard him. Because, you should know, testimony of
this sort is nearly worthless in science.

world.
Simply give it a try.

Oh "science" , how funny. As for science, If NaHCO3. were of value as an
antiviral, it would have been all over the planet for the last 80 years.
Also, it can be dangerous when taken internally. Advising people to try it
is unwise.
