KUALA LUMPUR — Eating soil can produce better results compared to taking slimming pills, claimed researchers from an Australian university.
China Press reported that researchers from the University of South Australia were looking for a way to improve the body’s absorption towards medication to prevent mental illness.
They accidentally found out that soil does not only attract fat, it could also stop fat from being absorbed into the body and bypass the digestive system.
This was the basis for claims that eating soil might make it easier for the body to excrete fat compared to taking slimming pills.
However, they are still testing to see if eating soil is safe for the body or if it could cause any side effects.
