I think fleas do become immune to pesticides.  Same with roaches, ants and other bugs.  Even though you may have used a pesticide (advantage and the other products) a few eggs or fleas may still live thru the treatment, making them stronger and over a period of time you have an immunity.  WIth the product De Flea, it is not a chemical, it works on dissolving the waxy coating of fleas.  This is something they cannot become immune to.

I suppose that it would work the same way on humans. Why? Do you have an internal parasite?  Wink

Well, I think that people swear by it for their pets and flea problems. I guess I can't speak for everyone, but the reason I love it so much is that it works without chemicals in a purely mechanical way.

I don't think it provides very much in the way of calcium.  You would have to eat about a cup a day for any real mineral benefit...And I don't know that it would be "usable" for our systems.  However, people get parasites too.  We just don't realize it and are rarely treated for them.  You can get white clay though...That's supposed to provide a TON of minerals and stuff that's good for you.  If you are ever stuck in a very small town in AL you will see bags of it for sale.  I can't find it here though...Too resort-y I guess.  There's a dr out in CA that sells the stuff.  He says to eat about a cup a day and that it's an aquired taste.  He swears that's what keeps him healthy.  Whatever floats his boat...
