The chemical compound silicon dioxide, also known as silica (from the Latin silex), is an oxide of silicon with a chemical formula of SiO2 and has been known for its hardness since antiquity. Silica is most commonly found in nature as sand or quartz, as well as in the cell walls of diatoms. Silica is the most abundant mineral in the earth's crust. Silica is used in the production of:
- Soda-lime glass, typically found in drinking glasses, bottles, and windows.
- Raw material for many white-ware ceramics such as earthenware, stoneware and porcelain.
- Raw material for the production of Portland cement.
- A food additive, primarily as a flow agent in powdered foods, or to absorb water.
Slica is the powder in the small packets that are included with electronics and transistor components to reduce moisture. It is also in the small packages in some powdered food products (like pills and health powders) so the powder doesn't clump or the pills don't destabilize or decompose from excessive moisture. On the packets it is clearly marked we should not eat silica.
Slica blocks body energy and unnecessarily absorbs water, both of which have a detrimental effect on our bodies. It is an insulator and interrupts the dynamic body energy processes. Silica is quite detrimental to body energy and when added to powdered MSM, makes the sulfur less efficient. Our estimate, after ten years research, is from 50% to 70% less effective. Silica is a packaging agent that shouldn't be in our bodies and blocks the sulfur from doing its job.
