Joel Wallach is a con man, and tells outright lies in his tapes - not 
only that, but his 'cures' are dangerous, often containing toxic levels 
of mercury, lead, arsenic, selenium, etc. There are a number of sites on 
the web debunking his story, which you can google for if you're interested.

Not that it's necessarily got anything to do with rock dust on crops, 
but ingesting it directly is a different matter.
