Medicinal clays may heal ulcers

Abstract:
Clays have long been used for stomach aches, paper processing, sealing wells and other applications.

But the long history of bogus clay cures and the fact that clay has such lowly origins has made clay research proposals a hard sell to funding agencies, Giese says.

"The previous uses have been low tech," he says, adding that clay particles are truly nature's own nanotechnology.

"I think that if clay was not synonymous with mud and dirt, we would be much further along."
