Note: Since bentonite, the main ingredient in #7 with its active constituent, montmorillonite, has a such strong adsorptive powers, its consumption could render unavailable some of the necessary nutrients, such as certain vitamins, by adsorbing them from all the alimentary canal. However, independent experiments purposely designed to find out how much this adsorption would adversely affect the growth and health of experimental animals indicated no ill effect when the intake of bentonite was 25% of the total diet, but did adversely affect the health when the intake of bentonite was increased to 50% of the total diet. (From Annals of the N.Y. Academy of Science, Vol. 57, page 678, May 10, 1954.) Since our product is mostly water with only a small proportion of bentonite, to reach this state of toxicity it would mean projecting the results of this experiment so that a person would have to consume each day a supply designed for 1032 days. In other words, mathematically for the bentonite in our product to reach the toxic level of 50% of the diet, it would be necessary to consume a 3 year supply each day over an extended period.
