Would supplements that contain silicon dioxide effect a diet that has plenty of sulphur in it?

and would it be possible to heal past acne damage with a type of organic sulphur, what info could you provide me on that.
Thanks your time is very much appreciated.

Sulfur is missing in our diet because it comes from the soil. We don't get enough of it because the soil used to grow foods are chemical fertilizers. Minerals are usually transferred from the soil to the plants but that's no longer the case because chemical fertilizers lack minerals these days.

New book rethinks the relationship between sulfur and crops

MADISON, WI, October 1, 2008 - As a nutrient, sulfur is often overlooked in favor of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, but a new book explains its crucial role in soil condition, plant growth and nutrition. For agricultural professionals, understanding how plants use sulfur is essential for optimizing crop yield and quality. Sulfur – A Missing Link Between Soils, Crops and Nutrition, a new book from the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and Soil Science Society of America, provides detailed information on the importance of sulfur.

Edited by Dr. Joseph Jez of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri, Sulfur provides a unique perspective on the relationship that sulfur plays in the dietary needs of humans and animals. Dr. Jez was careful to include a highly regarded group of authors to share their insights on this timely topic, with expertise ranging from the molecular level to practical field work.

The book examines the central role that sulfur plays as a nutrient affecting crop yield and quality, animal feed value and human diet. Most previous books have dealt with the topic as it relates to molecular biology and the biochemistry of sulfur metabolism, but new insights are available here for a more comprehensive understanding.

The first chapter begins with a discussion of the different forms of sulfur and the cycling process in soil, and how those relate to sulfur fertility. Chapter titles include "Soil Sulfur Cycling in Temperate Agricultural Systems", "History of Sulfur Deficiency in Crops" and "Availability of Sulfur to Crops from Soil and Other Sources".

With its fresh look on the importance of sulfur to crop, Sulfur – A Missing Link Between Soils, Crops and Nutrition provides practical and useful information for a wide range of professionals.
