    I didn't mean to pile all that on you, Alphian. It was directed at the whole thread. This thread is just the ultimate facepalm for me.

    The glaring logical flaw is that there are lots of substances which are toxic no matter how they are ingested, eaten, drunk, inhaled, whatever. Picking one thing, water, that happens to be good to drink but toxic if inhaled and trying to make that the basis for saying that silica is good to eat even though it is toxic if inhaled is just plain silly. The two have nothing to do with each other.

    it's a very fine powder that can puff up if you look down at it too quickly

    why people would use this to scour their colons i don't know, but as an insect killer it's a-ok
    Your internal mucous membranes are a lot more delicate than your floors.
    Next time I need an insect killer, this is good to know.

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

      • I do use it as an external pest control because of its lack of toxicity around my dogs pet beds and such... it's pretty good at that.
        But that feature wouldn't work internally because of the function by which it works(it absorbs the waxy lipid coating causing dehydration, it does not cut them), and it's use as in internal pest control method is questionable at best.

          • hi. I was told to take 1 teaspoon of DE twice a day for 3 months by my integrative doctor. so its been around 3 weeks and im not seeing all these great benefits others are seeing that I have read about. I know it will probably take time and I am slow to react to things, but im breaking out and I thought my skin would be clearing up. the only thing I notice is that im very regular. no clearer skin or nice faster growing hair. my nails were seeming to grow a little faster but then they all broke off.
            im eating very healthy and gluten and dairy free as also suggested and taking supplements. I actually eat very little grains since they seem to be an issue for me.
            im just wondering if anyone knows how long itll be before I see the healthy and beauty benefits. I also read about making a paste and using it as a face mask. I have very sensitive skin and am wondering if it would be to abrasive for me. bentonite clay turned me red for over a week when I tried that as a mask. my husband also. that clay also made us bloated and gaining weight and feel like crap.
            anyway, is there a detox my body has to go through before feeling better? or is it just not going to work for me?
            I don't feel bad from it. just no better than before I started and im very anxious to get this acne issue to clear. it usually goes away when I am strict on the no gluten, grain, dairy, sugar diet. but ive been so strict and its not clearing this time. I don't understand.
            so if anyone has any advise or experience let me know!

            • also DE does not interrupt the good bacteria in your gut like other detoxifiers.
