A Regulatory Riddle

Baking soda!

Also known as sodium bicarbonate, this ingredient is a wonder; a regulatory mythical creature! To my knowledge, no other product can be lawfully sold across so many regulatory classifications:

Food: It helps to make your pancakes fluffy (in other words, it’s a leavening agent).

Drug: It helps you when you ate too much and fell in poison ivy:

  1. Antacid: simply add 1/2 teaspoon to 1/2 glass (4 oz) of water and drink, and feel relief for your heartburn, acid indigestion, sour stomach, and upset stomach.
  2. Skin protectant: make a paste, add to a bath, or make a wet bandage, and then apply to the affected to skin to relieve minor skin irritation and itching due to poison ivy, oak and sumac, and insect bites.

Cosmetic: Bath, skin, and hair preparations.

Consumer Product: Just think of all those household cleaning and deodorizing uses.

Pesticide: Keep fungi away with this wonderful fungicide.
