    Hi everyone,

    Have we reached a consensus on whether Micro-crystalline Cellulose is dangerous? If so, what damage can it cause? What are the effects on someone such as myself who has ingested enormous amounts in supplements over the years?

    And the same questions for silica as well.

    Thanks!

    quote from Nathan Hatch
    " Silicon dioxide is very irritating to tissues because of its hardness, and our bodies also cannot metabolize it in that state so it harms tissues when ingested. I always warn people not to buy products that contain it. Silicic acid on the other hand is plant-derived silica which we can use and can help with a lot of body functions as well as help remove things like aluminum and mercury and is often marketed as "plant sourced" silica or in/from horsetail."
