Why is "Silicon dioxide" in our "Supplements"?



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 . . .


Anti-caking agent

Adsorbent

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!!!!
