It’s important to note that Aflatoxin is a mold-like compound that is emitted by organisms that live on different crops. The problem is that these toxins are detectable in cooking oils and peanut butter. According to research, these substances can have a negative impact on the immune system. Aside from this, Aflatoxins can also lead to liver damage. Based on animal models, it has become evident that bentonite clay can help with the prevention of health damage caused by the ingestion of aflatoxin.
VOCs, which is short for volatile organic compounds is a term that refers to different chemicals that come out of cleaning supplies, office equipment, paint, pesticides, permanent markers, and building materials, just to name a few. Most people breathe in these places. According to experts, bentonite clay absorbs VOCs and reduces your exposure to the dangerous substances. Research is still on to find out the proper use of bentonite for fighting VOCs.
Typically, bentonite clay is used to clean your system of toxic compounds, especially toxic metals that degrade your health with the passage of time. As a matter of fact, metals that cause the most damage include benzene, lead, cadmium, and mercury, just to name a few. Aside from this, the metals are also found in building materials, drinking water and the environment. According to a study, bentonite clay reduces the effects of the harmful metals.
Land near roads or highways is also contaminated with different metals, toxic chemicals, and pollutants, just to name a few. Most of the soil contamination is the result of decades of accumulation. Many of the chemicals interfere with the soil quality and the production of crop. Moreover, organic chemical compounds, such as xylene, toluene, and benzene are found in this type of contaminated soil. Aside from this, the exposure to these chemicals may result in severe health effects. Also, bentonite clay can reduce soil contaminates.
