    Consumer Reports: Activated charcoal health, beauty trend

    Curious about the recent trend in food, health and beauty? It's called activated charcoal. It's used in emergency rooms as an antidote for some drug overdoses and poisons, but now it can be found in soaps, beauty face masks, supplements, and more as a simple way to 'detox.' Consumer Reports looks into the claims.

    Activated charcoal has a spectacularly large surface area and can adsorb a variety of organics. Great for pumping toxins out of a stomach, and also useful in chemical synthesis/purifications. It's also usually acidic as hell. I wouldn't be excited to rub it on my face.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.
