A diatom is a single-cell organism so tiny that for it to be seen it would have to be magnified thousands of times. Diatoms are present in all types of water reservoirs on Earth, both fresh and salt. They are found even in damp soils. Those organisms constitute primary food for all kinds of creatures living in water environment. They may be called “sea grass”. Presence of higher forms of life in water environment depends on the presence of diatoms in large volumes. Without them, such forms of life could not exist. Diatoms are so fertile that if you got all of them together and placed on one end of a see-saw, and all other land organisms, trees, plants, etc., on the other end, the land organisms would end up high in the air. In other words, diatoms are much more numerous than all other land organisms put together.

Why is this tiny organism so important? 
We don’t know how much fish or other seafood is in your diet, but millions of people would starve if they had no access to the sea and fresh water fish.

Majority of all sea creatures would not exist if they had no access to diatoms. This tiny sea organism is, for example, main food of gigantic baleen whales that weigh even 90 ton. We don’t know if whales are aware that such organisms exists – they surely can’t see them. Whales open their huge mouths, take in tons of water and filter out microscopic organisms. The largest living creature on Earth owes its existence to the smallest organism on Earth.

How important are diatoms to you? It doesn’t matter if you’ve ever heard of them. They are important for your wellbeing and maybe for your existence. We are sure that the human race could not exist – at least as we know it – if it wasn’t for diatoms. It is very important that you have some knowledge about those organisms and know why they are so important – because the human race is currently putting at risk its own existence destroying the living organisms most important for the Earth.

Microscopic shells of the diatoms of diatomaceous earth are built mainly of silicon dioxide SiO2 and traces of other mineral elements. Diatoms were created in water environment, so they are insoluble in water. They pass through the digestive system of humans, animals and birds almost unchanged; also by their stomachs where they are exposed to caustic stomach acid. Only very small amounts are digested. When they are passed through the digestive system, several important things take place.


They are of physical nature and are safe for your body.

The shape of the shell and the size of holes in its wall are very important. Additionally, each shell has strong negative electrical charge. Many harmful substances that are present in living organisms are positively charged. Diatoms – thanks to their negative charge – act like a magnet that attracts, absorbs, and destroys positively charged harmful substances which are sufficiently small to get into the holes in diatom shells. Diatoms pass through the stomach and intestines cleaning them of substances dangerous for your health.

 

Diatoms passing through your digestive system brush against parasites causing their damage and subsequent death. Diatoms themselves pass through your body not causing any harm.

 

Most living creatures come in contact with parasite eggs every day. Parasites may be killed with toxic substances or equally effective and harmless diatomaceous earth.

Those processes are partially chemical, as small parts of diatoms are subject to chemical reaction in the presence of digestive gastric acid. In the contact with gastric acid in your stomach, diatom shells are transformed into highly digestible and safe orthosilicic acid that is absorbed by your body greatly improving your health. More details can be found in the Applications and Literature tabs.

In the modern world most food (animal feed and human food) and most water and air contain dangerous substances which cripple your immunological system engaging the energy that could be used in case of animals to produce meat and milk. For example, Canadian veterinarian Dr. Johnson discovered that diatomaceous earth absorbs bacteria responsible for diarrhea and removes such bacteria from their bodies. Animals are protected from unnecessary stress and potential death.

Animals fed with feed with addition of appropriate amount of good quality fossil flour are not affected by parasites and toxic chemicals and draw maximum benefits from the feed and water they consume. As a result, veterinary care costs may be reduced by even 75%.
