good article but you have to remember that this is not just the microcrystaline all the celluose today being used in nutreceuticals as well as pharmaceuticals are all nano~ the methods are going to a “nanodelivery” and this is also being utilized in vaccines and in alot of health supplements which when consumed aggragate and agglomerate and morph and get activated with almost any form of frequency and it begins it’s assmblying and as a result it densifies even more
augmentinforce.com has several links on the topic and yes you can get this out but with great difficulty
I copied the Microcrystalline Cellulose Part direct from the document.
Four rats were fed 14C-labelled microcrystalline cellulose at 10
or 20% of their diet. No evidence of degradation or digestion was
noted. Faecal recoveries of radioactivity ranged from 96-104% and were complete for all labelled material. No radioactivity appeared in the urine (Baker, 1966).
In the studies summarized in Table 1, there was no evidence of
toxicity of microcrystalline cellulose preparations administered
either orally or dermally to rats at doses of 5000 or 2000 mg/kg bw,
respectively. The observations seen at necropsy in animals treated
intraperitoneally with Cellan 300 at 3160 mg/kg bw are consistent with an irritant reaction caused by the presence of foreign material. An inhalation toxicity study showed only transient effects at a concentration of 5.35 mg/litre.
An acute inhalation toxicity study using a preparation of Avicel
AC-815 (composed of 85% microcrystalline cellulose and 15% calcium
alginate) with mass median aerodynamic diameter of 8.48-8.61 µm (range
of measures) was dispersed and delivered at a mean concentration of
5.35 mg/litre in a nose-only inhalation exposure chamber to 5 male and
5 female Crl:CDBR VAF Plus rats for a period of 4 hours. The rats were
observed over the 14 days after removal from the chamber. The only
signs of toxicity were on removal from the chamber and consisted of
chromodacryorrhea, chromorhinorrhea and, in one male rat, decreased locomotion; these signs had resolved by the next day. After 14 days no gross lesions were observed at necropsy (Signorin, 1996).
Microcrystalline Cellulose can cause moderate to severe bowel movement when ingusted in large amount. 2. Microcrystalline Cellulose can cause loss of energy and weight when ingusted in large amount as it can not be absorbed and reduces the absorption of other dietary nutrients. 3. Microcrystalline Cellulose can cause allergic reaction in some individuals, the typical reaction is diarrhoea or gas problems.
DANGERS OF MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE
I have some NEW concerns for us to think about as far as using MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE as a filler in Nature Throid, Westhroid and ArmourThyroid tablets.
I am a Registered Nurse, with an extensive background in physiology. It occurred to me that just as the cells cannot keep out artificial sweeteners, but absorb them as if they were ordinary glucose, and that this wreaks havoc in our cells ability to function, leading to many forms of physical discomfort and illness, that the same thing would apply if we use MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE as a filler in our Thyroid products. I remembered reading on this forum about why Armour stopped working well for many people, even when they adjusted their dosage correctly. The reason stated was that they had started using artificial fillers.
Doing some research I came upon this article, and want to share it here. It says exactly that: Our cells cannot stop the micro-nano particles from entering them, and once there they are not able to be useful, but float in and out of the cell membranes, and basically clog up tiny places in our bodies, bioaccumulating as we take more, and causing background inflammation to rise.

Nanotechnology: benefits vs toxic risks,
Feb. 1, 2007 George Burdock | Functional Ingredients
“”Once in the body, some particles have changed the shape or conformation of proteins, creating a protein similar to that produced in Alzheimer’s disease. Changing protein conformation can potentially create new allergenic proteins in organs to which the body could mount an immune response. --While easy entry into the cells of the intestine and target organs can be beneficial, the other side of the coin is that because these particles are so ‘slippery,’ how can they ever be excreted by the body? Because much of our excretory system at the cellular level is based on a cell successfully excreting a substance (as in the kidney) to be flushed away, how can the particle be made to remain in the waste stream if it can so easily gain re-entry into other cells downstream?
While some of the more dramatic examples of actual physical damage are described above, the damage most often seen in response to nano-materials is the generation of reactive oxygen species, resulting in oxidative stress to the biological system. ---In oxidative stress, the universal antioxidant chemical in the body, glutathione or GSH, is converted to the oxidized inactive form, GSSH. As reserves of GSH are depleted and the GSH:GSSH ratio lowers, the body mounts a progressively more assertive reaction. The first stage of oxidative stress is to produce special enzymes to detoxify the new invading chemical; if, however, there is no enzyme for this purpose or the human does not have the capability to produce the enzyme, the body progresses into the next stage, inflammation.””

Listen to this one regarding buying supplements...
buying Stuff...the legitmacy --BIOFILMmmmMMM
Biofilm buildup from the "Other Ingredients" in supplements, such as the cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, etc...
If it ends in "lose" (as in you (u) lose, or your cells lose - CELL U LOSE), then it means polymer. As in veggie capsules from cellullose or pullulan means polyermized capsules. THIS is compromising us. Look CLOSELY at the word CELL U LOSE Hello? Loser? Get it?
Regarding the Pullulan veggie cappsule, here's what Tony said...
here is what it is
Pullulan is a polysaccharide polymer consisting of maltotriose units, also known as α-1,4- ;α-1,6-glucan'. Three glucose units in maltotriose are connected by an α-1,4 glycosidic bond, whereas consecutive maltotriose units are connected to each other by an α-1,6 glycosidic bond. Pullulan is produced from starch by the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans. Pullulan is mainly used by the cell to resist desiccation and predation. The presence of this polysaccharide also facilitates diffusion of molecules both into and out of the cell.
As an edible, mostly tasteless polymer, the chief commercial use of pullulan is in the manufacture of edible films that are used in various breath freshener or oral hygiene products such as Listerine Cool Mint of Johnson and Johnson (USA) and Meltz Super Thin Mints of Avery Bio-Tech Private Ltd. (India). As a food additive, it is known by the E number E1204.
