I debated what should be today's title. The top choices included, Best Bentonite, The Witch Doctor is in Today or Best Bentonite Users Meet Evolution's Theory of Natural Selection. Just when you think the public cannot be any more gullible, here comes the folks buying Best Bentonite. The FDA has warned the public about lead levels in Bentonite. And so after reading the FDA warning I get to wondering what is Bentonite and how are people using it that the FDA would become involved?

It is used for body wraps, foot baths and mud baths. Here is your lower level Genetic Link to helping to speed up the time it takes to kill more of your brain cells by wrapping yourself in a nice bath of lead laced Bentonite. 

Darwin's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. More individuals are produced each generation that can survive. Phenotypic variation exists among individuals and the variation is heritable. Those individuals with heritable traits better suited to the environment will survive. And those who aren't won't. It is really this simple.

And so still not believing what I'm reading I go to the Best Bentonite site thinking I'm going to get denials about lead being in it, because lead causes irreversible harm to humans, brain damage being at the top of the list. And here is what I find. "It would not be bentonite if it didn't." I'm serious, they posted this statement when discussing the lead content of their Bentonite, just follow this link. First Ernst, then Trump and now people buying Bentonite to improve their inner selves. What's next, eating radioactive fallout from Japan? No wonder people voted for Ernst and Trump. 

Here is how the Best Bentonite website describes the product they sell:

Best Bentonite Clay  is historically known for its highly absorptive and adsorptive properties and its ability to draw out and bind. 

Geologically Bentonite is a mineral rich volcanic ash that was deposited in sea water approximately 60 million years ago. It is a swelling-type bentonite containing only 14 to 17 elements. One of the lowest number of elements to comprise a mineral on earth. This low mineral count is believed to be partially responsible for the high absorptive properties in the clay

The Best Bentonite occurs in Wyoming. It's also known as western or sodium type bentonite. This type of Bentonite is capable of absorbing 7 to 10 times its own weight in water, and swelling up to 18 times its dry volume. 

Because of it's unique properties and characteristics, Wyoming Bentonite is the standard against which all other bentonite in the world is measured. And that's why it's the only bentonite that we use. 

Amazing that the FDA has warned about elevated lead levels in this product and it is still for sale. $10.00 for 2 pounds. I wonder how much lead is in the two pounds? All I can think of is Wow! Really? If you will buy Bentonite then I have some dirt to sell you. I miss eating quahogs... (see photo to the left)
