Pork rinds and beer?

"Although it may seem "stranger than science" as veteran newsman Frank Edwards, used to say, pork rinds and beer are concentrated sources of silicon, although most nutritional adepts would frown on the former, at least.

Nevertheless, you need not look far to find (other) natural sources of silica, since Noble recommends that, "If a person has symptoms of silicon deficiency, such as very dry hair, of silica, including horsetail or oat-straw, or food sources, such as wheat bran, soybeans, beets, leafy vegetables and brown rice." However, keep in mind that the less adulterated the secondary source of silica is, the more benefits it will have to offer. So, strive to find organic, unprocessed sources of these products. Silica supplements containing standardized orthosilicic acid are also available, some fortified with silica partners such as magnesium, potassium and calcium."

-------> reply....interesting because I've been using gelatin rich foods for years for my osteoarthritic ankle. Pork skin is one of the best sources for gelatin....throwing a piece of pork skin into a broth increases the gelatin content by 100X and the broth tastes great.

Oh boy the beer sounds like a lovely addition to my dinners!!! Of course in the name of medicinals.

So...the silica content of gelatin might be really high. I also use wild fish head stocks which are also really amazingly rich in gelatin. I bet these are also Iodine loaded and probably selenium.
