  1. I will probably get some of hate responses for this but: I believe from much research that Diatomaceous earth flours used in grains storage and food processing account for an increase in celiac like illnesses. Real world Quality control is lacking and basically you get a quantity of basically silica-flour content. It is used also as a filler in many of the products listed to avoid. It act as an allergen and abrasive to villi. And face it: if it kills insects and worms by abrading and moisture absorption, how can it be good for you gut unless you do have a parasitic infection. There has not been enough study to prove its long term health impact and saying it is non-toxic only implies that you dont have adverse affects in the short term. read: http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/NTP/Noms/Support_Docs/Silica%20flour_oct2009.pdf http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/ar/archive/jul98/sci0798.pdf ( even though this is a pro article it describes the toxicity mechanism on insects )
