Reviews of Using Diatomaceous Earth Around the House and Yard by Cygnet Brown

James Jenkins reviewed on March 4, 2016

There are about 4 references at the end of the work. There are multiple descriptions of results from "studies" in the work, but these are not given references.

I have some knowledge about diatomaceous earth from some other research I have done, nothing here strongly conflicts with what I have learned in other places. The author is clearly a fan of DE, and may have over stated the benefits, some of the benefits have been shown but more testing is required I think.

For anyone considering the use of DE this is a good work to get you started. If you find one of the claims promising, do a bit more research before buying a truckload of DE,

Inclusion of references to claims made would bump this to a 4 star work.
