Natural Clay Can Be Toxic

Just remember that clays are toxic. I built a hot tub out at my place big concrete one. And I wanted to color the cement, so I got natural oxide to color it, but what happens is after you know, about five or six days of that water settling in there oxides started coming into the water and I started getting symptoms.

And the way I found that out was because I let the algae grow and after it turned green and was very thick, all of a sudden, it started to turn yellow. So, the cadmium oxide was a part substance of that natural clay when I put in the cement, so it was killing the algae. It was turning yellow and dying.

So, um, I'm debating whether I'll tile it now.

So, even natural clays can be toxic, you just have to be careful. If there's cadmium in it, it's a yellow clay without a lot of iron in it like [unclear]. [unclear] doesn't have enough iron in it to chelate to the cadmium.

So, you just have to be careful. I've learned so much in the past six months of studying this clay, I'm still not satisfied to be able to provide.

So, coral calcium is probably the least toxic clay to use.

Yes, I'm working with it right now. I'll let you know in a couple months, I just got it three weeks ago


What clay?




What is that?


It's a clay.


Is it a green clay?


No, it's a beige clay, but it comes from a thermal bed, which I'm not happy with because those mienrals are cauterized at high temperatures.

And this thermal bed is like 700 degrees deep in the earth.

So, of course that was millions of years ago, but I still don't like using cauterized minerals.
