Editor's Notes

  • Brimstone means, "burning stone" or, "the stone that burns.
    Although sulphur is infamous for its smell, frequently compare to rotten eggs, that odor is actually characteristic of hydrogen sulphide (H2S).

  • 1) The density of a substance is the relationship between the mass of the substance and how much space it takes up (volume).
  • Sulfur is an element of the earth and is vital to the human body, without it we would not survive. Sulfur is the sixth most abundant macro-mineral in human breast milk.
    It is not discussed much in nutrition books, mainly because it has not been thought to be essential—that is, sulfur deficiency does not cause any visible problems.
    The average person takes in around 900 mg of sulphur per day, mainly in the form of protein.
  • produce an important antioxidant in your body called glutathione, which protects cells from damage. Also create connective tissues that support your joints.
    Sulfur is present in four amino acids: methionine, an essential amino acid; the nonessential cystine and cysteine, and taurine, which is not part of body tissues but does help produce bile acid for digestion.
  • So eating a protein rich diet is one of the best ways to ensure the body gets an ample amount.
    Lean Meat is a meat having low fat contents
    Brussels sprouts is small green vegetable like cabbage
  • Kale is a dark green vegetable close to cabbage
    Lettuce is a plant with green leaves used in salad
    Kelp is a type of brown seaweed
  • 1) Convulsions is a sudden shaking movement which cannot be controlled
  • A study in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism found that many people, particularly a large segment of the elderly population, are not getting enough sulfur in their diets. This is important, say the study authors, because without sufficient sulfur, your body has difficulty ridding itself of toxins via your liver.
  • Amino acids turning into sulfur compounds necessary for proper functioning. Because these amino acids aren’t normally stored in the body.
    The amino acid can build up in the body if you cannot metabolize cysteine properly and
  • Migraine is a severe type of headache which often makes a person feel sick and have difficulty in seeing.
  • Sulphur is a very important chemical element on earth. If it is said that Life can’t be survive on this earth without sulphur, it will be true.
    As it is discussed above that sulphur has many useful advantages and some serious disadvantages as well
    It’s all depend on us that how we are using that thing. Here if we deal with sulphur in controlled way than there will be no harmful effect of sulphur on us.
