Eating dirt isn’t something that sounds very wise, but this book tells us that far from being bad for you, it’s actually the reverse. The author, who found out about the health benefits of clay when ill himself, is a persuasive proponent and has gathered a lot of evidence to support this belief. He tells us that more than 200 cultures worldwide eat clay on a daily basis to aid digestion and overall well being, and cites many clinical studies that have proved that clay has multiple uses from counteracting poison to providing mineral supplements. Clay can also detoxify the body, it has antibacterial and antiviral effects and is used to treat some gastrointestinal conditions. This book is a thorough examination of the science of clay, its importance in some religious rituals and all its proven practical uses, and leaves you in no doubt that clay is well worth trying.
