Cutting..? Yick, I'd like to see those reports. <:)
I don't know if Montmorillite is considered a Bentonite clay or nor. I've have to research the subject.
I can just stay teensily on the subject of Iodine though, I mixed my Lugol's powder into a 30% solution with distilled water some two days ago, and have been using between 2-3 drops of it in my supplement-juice. I've been using the kelp powder otherwise. Lots and lots. (well, up against that tiny 500-mcg spoon they put in the container, a half-teaspoon is huge!)
