132 Soil Minerals and Human Health: I

Poster Session
S09 Soil Mineralogy

Soil minerals can have both beneficial and adverse effects on human and animal health. Many minerals in soils can convert biological and synthetical toxins to nontoxic or less toxic forms through degradation or adsorption. With increasing awareness of emerging organic compounds, mycotoxins, and nanoparticles in the environment, understanding the interactions of soil minerals with those compounds and the related health problems to human and animals are critical for both preventing the adverse effects and for exploring the use of minerals to alleviate the problems.
