    Great article. Thanks. Question:

    Do you know how activated charcoal compares to pure clay? Both are adsobents, and both detoxify. I was wondering if you had any information or opinion on comparing the two -- like, are they basically the same on all the aspects, or is one better than the other?


    Thank you,
