WHAT CAUSES LACK OF SILICON IN OUR BODIES?
There are different reasons that cause silicon low rates in our organism. We are born with 7g of silicon in our body transferred by our mothers, we use this until we grow, and we start absorbing it from food sources. Scientist states that we are used to diets with 10 times more silicon and only 2-3% of silica consumed from food source is actually absorbed. The reasons of this decreasing rate of silicon are due to aggressive horticulture methods and chemical burns of the microorganisms in the soil, responsible for solubilizing inorganic silicon. Consequently, the soil and then vegetables and animals have less amount of silicon in their structure.
The 21st century diets often differ from the ideal, with refined foods replacing raw vegetables, seeds, roots, leaves and fruits Asian and Indian diets are higher in silica content than Westerners which explains why these groups have fewer injuries as in hip fractures.
