There are many benefits of silica. In today’s grains, there is actually a shortage of silica.
Traditionally, the silica that was found in our foodstuffs was sufficient but with today’s hybrids and depleted soils, only about one third of the silica needed for a healthy diet, is supplied in our food.
Diatomaceous Earth is a simple and inexpensive way to get the silica your body needs. Food-grade diatomaceous earth is easy and safe to consume. It passes through your digestive system. It does not enter the bloodstream.
However, you need to be very careful not to inhale diatomaceous earth. Doing so will irritate your lungs much like the inhalation of dust — but the silica makes it exceptionally harmful causing inflammation and scarring of your lungs, known as silicosis.
