Don't worry, theres not bad side effect or anything. I've been eating clay since I was 8 , and now im 17. I Love the taste of it, and I love how it melts in your mouth. But this craving is known as a pica disorder. According to 'The Clay Cure' by Ran Knishinsky, clay can be credited by healing a wide range of illnesses. These include constipation, diarrhea, anemia, chronic infections, skin aliments such as eczema and acne. The particles of clay are said to carry a negative electical charge, whereas impurities, or toxins carry a positive electical charge.
When we eat clay,the positively charged toxins are attracted by the negatively charged edges of the clay mineral. An exchange reaction occurs where the clay swaps it ions for those of the other substance. Electrically satisfied, it holds the toxin in suspension until the body can eliminate both.(:
