Effect of Large Dose of Attapulgite on Animal Growth and Blood Microenvironment
Effect of acute toxicity and chronic toxicity on attapulgite for animal was studied by Kunming mice and SD rats experiment through administering intragastrically with large dose of attapulgite suspension. The results showed that the mice were normal and grew well, and they did not appear death and toxicity symptoms when they received the same amount as 286 times of the adult dose, indicating that attapulgite mineral powders did not contain acute toxicity and administering intragastrically with large dose of attapulgite suspension had no obvious influence on blood environment and normal growth of rats, and attapulgite did not contain chronic toxicity.
