Biochar as a Medicine – Eating Charcoal

charcoal
There is some explanation from this 2008 article on Paxherbals.net that biochar can be used to cure certain illnesses. Even monkeys and elephants use them to cure themselves of illnesses. I can imagine how biochar could be effective in “absorbing” the bacteria in our gastrointestinal systems but I will wait until some clinical trials. Somehow eating something so dark and glass-textural doesn’t conjure up a delicious dish to me.
