DEtox CONCERNS FOR CHILDREN AND PREGNANCY
Also, as noted in the immune system care and feeding article, the DEtox may be inappropriate for young children and pregnant or nursing women unless adequate mineral supplementation is carefully applied to offset any depletion of nutritional minerals. It would be far better to wait for careful studies in animals to establish its safety in children and pregnant or nursing women. At the same time, the DEtox reportedly eliminates diarrhea (scours) in calves being weaned from their mothers, with dramatic improvements in the animals' health. Faced with otherwise intractable and life-threatening health problems, such as food poisoning from E. coli, Giardia, or severe metal poisoning, the benefits of the DEtox to these unstudied groups may far outweigh the risks. Diatomaceous earth has been reported in the literature to absorb methyl mercury, E. coli, endotoxin, poliovirus, protein (presumably proteinaceous toxins as well), drugs, and organophosphate and pyrethroid insecticide residues.
