Is Eating Clay Essential Now?
Why this old detox/cleaning method is getting popular again..? Could eating clay become essential in todays world? Bentonite clay benefits.
In old times eating clay was essential because of food poisoning from unknown plants and decayed food. There was not refrigerators or freezers. People ate a lot herbs from wild and among there could be poisonous plants. So they ate clay constantly to avoid food poisoning.
Today we don’t really have that problem, common food today is so processed that you cannot really get food poisoning anymore. We have refrigerators and freezers to store foods. We don’t really need eat wild herbs which we don’t know anything. So eating clay habit has been dismissed.
But could todays world have something that we should be eating clay..?
Yes, air pollution, pesticides on foods, radiation. Small amounts but everything adds up with time.. So you should at least consider adding clay to your diet. Benefits are huge and it’s cheap and fast to eat, so nothing to lose by eating it.
