Silica vs. Silicone
Silica is found naturally in the form of Quartz. It’s also found in a diverse range of living organisms, and it’s one of the main sediments of sand.
Silicone is a synthetic polymer. For the most part, the FDA deems silicone safe for food-grade applications and products. But, according to “Life Without Plastics,” their research and peer-reviewed scientific studies found --- you should be cautious about silicone.
In the study, it reports silicones CAN leech synthetic chemicals at low levels, and the risk is increased with fatty substances such as oils. Another study found silicone was released from bakeware where there was fat from food.
And according to a 2005 report by the Danish Ministry of the Environment, it found animals exposed to silicone caused impaired fertility, and had potential carcinogenicity. The EU considers certain silicone to be endocrine disruptors.
