Re: Clear, not cloudy.

Questions about pickling lime and its safety may soon become moot. I understand the product may soon be completely removed from public sale because of its potential dangers. Although I believe the properly diluted lime water should be safe for the majority of people, I had a violent reaction to it. And- I am not acidic according to the pH urine and saliva tests. I use a completely different drink for alkalizing.

Mrs Wages was still selling calcium hydroxide for making crisp pickles. Most other companies have already switched to another calcium compound for making pickles. Walmart and other large grocery chains have already discontinued carrying calcium hydroxide. I found a container at a small local shop, but I think they quit carrying it now, or perhaps they can no longer buy it.

Even when using the lime for making pickles, there have been problems caused by inhaling the product, getting corrosive skin burns, plus the danger of small children ingesting the product that might be potentially fatal.

I am not telling anyone to take or not take the calcium hydroxide, that is a choice every individual must make. I know that, at least for now, it is the wrong product for me. Perhaps things might change as I grow stronger, but nerve damage from a spinal injury is my problem, not sickness or disease. I cannot risk doing further damage, but I may try the CH in small amounts in the future to see if it will work. For now I am sticking to my version of an alkalizing drink.
