  • She orders her clay online.
  • People in indigenous cultures all over the world eat clay daily.
  • Clay and dirt are made from different matter; they are different earth materials.
  • She eats a teaspoon a day.

  • Clay binds to other material in your body and helps your body excrete materials like toxins and heavy metals.
