Okay . . . so as we discovered yesterday . . . consuming "silicon dioxide" . . . may "NOT" be a good idea for us . . . or our pets
And in the world of government regulations and synthetic drugs . . . this element is labeled as . . . (E551) . . .
You see . . . anything labeled with an "E" and numbers after it . . . is a "man-made synthetic" . . . that our government regulates.
Okay . . . so as we now know . . . "silicon dioxide" is MADE by mining "quartz rock" . . .
That's right . . . "silicon dioxide" is obtained through mining activities including sand extraction and quartz purification.
And when "oxygen" is added to this "rock" dust . . . it makes "silicon dioxide" . . . which looks like "plastic".
BUT . . . the BIG QUESTION still remains . . . is it SAFE for humans????
Well . . . the FDA says "yes" . . . due to the "particle size" of this rock being "small enough" for the body to eliminate it . . . as poop.
But . . . many of us . . . "CAN'T" digest "silicon dioxide" properly . . . or "poop" regularly (2 - 3 times a day) . . . and this can lead to "side effects" like . . . digestive upset.
Now . . . I get that manufacturers are looking for something to use as an "anti-caking agent" in their products . . .
But . . . "ROCKS"???
Come on PEOPLE!!!!
Organic regulations through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) state . . . it has moved to "LIMIT" the use of "silicon dioxide in "organic" products" . . .
And under a "final ruling" . . . this substance is "ONLY" permitted as a "defoamer".
Now . . . this is "ONLY" in the "ORGANIC WORLD" of food.
BUT . . . LISTEN TO THIS PEOPLE!!!
Defoamers . . . are used in many industrial processes and products like wood pulp, paper, paint, oil drilling, hydraulics and food processing . . . just to mention a few . . .
BUT WAIT . . . FOOD PROCESSING???
Yes . . . even in our food . . . and this "silicone" food code is called (E-900)
And what foods contain "defoaming" agents you ask???
Well . . . the top offender would be . . .
And sodas like Sprite, Coke, etc.
Okay . . . so let me think a moment . . . that sounds just like our WESTERN DIET we love so much!!!
So why is the USDA on top of this . . . and "NOT" the FDA???
Well . . . that's due to the USDA understanding that "silicon dioxide" can "cross" the "blood/brain" barrier . . . and access the "central nervous" system . . . which can cause . . . "NEUROTOXICITY."
This can also cause . . . "RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS (RA)" . . .
And the USDA also knows . . . that an all natural "defoamer" is "coconut oil".
So next question . . . why do they use "silicon dioxide" in the supplement we take "EVERY DAY"???
Well . . . let's talk about that tomorrow.
