Throughout the history of humankind, one of the major problems is
having to share our grain with insects. Various methods have had
different levels of success, but modern people thought they had the
answer when they started manufacturing toxic, persistent and deadly
At first it seemed to work, but two things began to happen. People
began to develop illnesses from the residues of these chemicals left in
the grain they used for food. Also, the insects began to develop
immunity to any chemical, regardless of how toxic.
In 1962, the PERMA-GUARD COMPANY got a patent on the use of pure
"food grade" Diatomaceous Earth, which, when added to grain killed the
bugs that were present, and protected the grain from further invasions.
And the bugs could not become immune, They were killed by
physical action--not chemical !
Seven pounds of pure, "food grade" Diatomaceous Earth, added to the
grain so that every kernel is coated, can protect the grain for as long
as needed. Instead of retreating grain every six months as the chemical
people do, Perma-Guard Grain Protectant need be added only once,
regardless of how long the storage lasts.
When the grain is to be used, the Diatomaceous Earth can be easily
removed, but need not be. Actually, since the product is "food grade,"
makes no difference in taste or in cooking quality, and adds 14 trace
minerals, why not leave it in?
