Eating soil is good for health, said Dr. Ashok K Patra, , Director ICAR, Indian Institute of Soil Science, Bhopal provided that its quality must be of high level, an agricultural scientist said during a plenary session during the ongoing 106th Indian Science Congress in Phagwara. He said, “We get minerals, iron and zinc from soil only. If soil is healthy, it can be even eaten directly.”

He gave example of a mythological story where Lord Krishna ate soil as a child. “His mother asked him to open his mouth. When he opened his mouth, she saw the entire universe inside.”
