So the question for today is this . . . why does the pharmaceutical industry use "silicon dioxide" in our tablets, capsules and pills???
Well . . . simply put . . . it's cheap to use . . .
And they use it in our supplements as an . . .
Disintegrant or glidant . . .
And this . . . is to allow the powder in the supplement . . . to flow freely when it is being processed.
BUT . . . with all that . . . it "ALSO" increases "blood glucose" levels.
And the Journal of Applied Toxicology states . . . that the higher concentration and the longer the human body is exposed . . . "silicon dioxide" interferes with "cell cycle" . . . and "inhibits cell growth" in the gastrointestinal tract.
They go on to say . . . more research is needed.
But . . . due to this "uncertainty" . . . the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) . . . "DOESN'T" classify "silicon dioxide" as "SAFE"!!!
So what's the real deal here???
Well . . . In 1997, the international Agency for research on Cancer classified "silicon dioxide" as a Group 1 "CARCINOGEN" FOR HUMANS.
But our government . . . doesn't agree!!!
And therefore . . . nobody talks about that . . .
READ YOUR "LABELS" PEOPLE!!!!
