Medicinal clays may heal ulcers
Clays have long been used for stomach aches, paper processing, sealing wells and other applications.

"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."
