Daily Health Tips: Is It Healthy To Eat Clay?


Q: Please is eating of clay(ulo) healthy? This is urgent.Please reply. Thanks

A: Eating clay and other non-food items is referred to as pica consumption. Ingestion of clay is known as geophagia. People eat clay for different reasons. Some claim to like the taste and the texture. More commonly, some pregnant women claim that it helps them to prevent the nausea and vomiting of early pregnancy.

Indeed, some new ‘regimens’ claim that clay has a detoxifying effect on the body when ingested. Well, I haven’t seen any evidence for this claim. There is however, evidence that some of these clay products eaten may be contaminated with arsenic or lead leading to arsenic or lead poisoning with attendant complications.

So, to answer your question simply, is eating clay healthy? No it’s not.
