'Doctors then were diagnosing these patients with tuberculosis, which was quite common then,' he recalls. 'But they did not understand why the usual treatment for TB was not working.' Dr Baris discovered that the patients were actually suffering from mesothelioma, a virulent form of cancer caused by exposure to (airborne) asbestos. The rates in Tuzkoy were hundreds of times higher than anywhere else in Turkey. But there was no asbestos in the region. Further research showed the cause to be a rare mineral called erionite, which has similar properties to asbestos, and is commonly found in the rock around Tuzkoy. As the rock is soft and powdery, it is very easy to inhale the erionite fibres.
'Women would often go into their
barns and brush the dust off the
walls,' says Dr Baris. 'Then they
breathe in the fibres. Even if a
child born in the village leaves
during childhood, he cannot run away
from mesothelioma. It is a horrible
disease, causing great pain.'
[Erionite Belongs to a group of
minerals called zeolites, is
Usually found in volcanic ash
altered by weathering and ground
water, has some properties similar
to asbestos, and is Listed by the
International Agency for Research on
Cancer as a Group 1 Carcinogen.]"
"Zeolites are porous
minerals that form naturally where
volcanic rocks and ash layers react
with alkaline ground water. Zeolites
(used orallly) have the unique
ability to adsorb (adhere to and
remove toxic) molecules by particle
size. Ironically, humans exposed to
fine (dust) particle zeolites in
their lungs may develop a form
of cancer called mesothelioma."

"Zeolite, which is a volcanic
mineral that has the ability when
cleaned and processed to suck out
all the volatile chemicals and heavy
metals from our body. Ironically,
these volcanic mineral is literally
full of heavy metals and volatile
substances. It was discovered that
by using a certain process; the
mineral properties that sucked in
the pollutants in the 1st place
could have the reverse effect when
processed using a patented method.
Literally Zeolites properties that
caused it to be full of contaminants
could be reversed and used to suck
out the toxins from our
body...Others who see a huge
potential for making a quick buck on
this product...bypass the (heavy
metal) extraction method and mine
the Zeolite without any thought of
the consequences. Zeolite without
the extraction process is known as
low grade Zeolite.
If the extraction method is
bypassed, you can literally die from
ingesting low grade Zeolite."
