    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    That is SO not primal. Mud.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I'm brand new to this forum, but I will jump in on the DE discussion; last November, I became very ill, could not keep food down most days, weight just dropped (50+ pounds in 3 months); I had a number of medical tests done without ever receiving an answer. In March, I was hospitalized for over a week due to severe dehydration and malnutrition. When I got home, my husband had found an article about DE; I figured I had nothing to lose. I take 2 tsps in either an occasional yogurt or smoothie. Within 3 days, the nausea and vomiting had stopped, my weight has now been stable since March. My colon is much more regular, I have energy again, and can finally feel like my old self. I do not have problems with constipation, but I tend to drink a lot of water normally, so that is probably why. I am a registered nurse, and some of my coworkers are now using it as well. We do not all respond exactly the same, but the ones who had g.i. problems, are all reporting improvement.

    I'm researching DE for use with my pets and ran across this thread. As a geologist some of what is being said here is driving me nuts! Paleobird, I think you need to re-read your wiki links (not that wiki is always the best source of reliable info). The term "sand" refers to a grain size, not a mineral content and certainly not a chemical content. The Wiki you noted says most sands are silica, but not all are and goes on to talk about other different types of sand. Sand is rocks or minerals that are "smaller than 0.0625 mm down to 0.004 mm". Just because it is silica does not mean it is a sand. Would you consider a quartz crystal to be sand? DE starts out as a rock, it doesn't really qualify as a sand anyway since it did not originate as sand, its crushed rock. Many laxatives have crushed rock (also not sand), so there really is purpose to eating crushed rock at times. Heck the cereal you eat in the morning contains a healthy portion of crushed rock. That's how they get the calcium in there. Furthermore, food grade (natural) DE is way different in composition from the typical silica sand at the beach. If you research a bit more you will see that your typical sand at the beach is crystalline silica, 90% small pieces of quartz crystals. DE is actually tiny fossils of amorphous (not crystalline) microbes, and they are hollow. In fact, in order for the world health org to consider DE as food grade, it must be less than 2 percent crystalline, and many food grade brands of DE contain much less than this. Perhaps this link from the Oregon Dept of Environmental Quality will be a better source to learn about DE than Wiki: http://www.deq.state.or.us/er/docs/L...hFactSheet.pdf

    My main concern with this this stuff is breathing the dust. I'm looking for articles where it is actually tested, but cannot find any. I don't like the idea of breathing this stuff in, even if the Oregon DEQ says the food grade is just as safe as any other dust. Particles this size can go right through a dust mask, and I don't like using a real respirator. I would like to see some data. Any of you who use the stuff looked into this?
