“The result of the analysis revealed a frightening chemical and biological composition.
The silica level detected is 14.20, which is at least 400 times higher than the World Health Organisation’s acceptable maximum of 0.03. Phosphate, a chemical that causes digestive problems to both human and animal, is five times higher (at 5.176) than the maximum level permissible by the WHO (1.0). The analysis also reveals 0.498 level of Lead, a dangerous carcinogenic metal.”
