Brazil nuts niger toes

The Bamboo Charcoal Sponge draws impurities out and provides all the positives qualities of charcoal cleansing.

The Brazil nut Bertholletia excelsa is a South American tree in the family Lecythidaceae , and is also the name of the tree's commercially harvested edible seeds. It is one of the largest and long-lived trees in the Amazon rainforest. The fruit and its nutshell — containing the edible Brazil nut — are relatively large, possibly weighing as much as 2 kilograms 4. As food, Brazil nuts are notable for diverse content of micronutrients , especially a high amount of selenium.

The wood of the Brazil nut tree is prized for its quality in carpentry , flooring , and heavy construction. In Cuba , the nut is alternatively called coquito de Santiago , literally St. James coconut. In North America , as early as , Brazil nuts were sometimes known by the slang term " nigger toes", [2] [3] [4] a vulgarity that faded as the racial slur became less used.

The Brazil nut family, Lecythidaceae , is in the order Ericales , as are other well-known plants such as blueberries, cranberries, sapote , gutta-percha , tea , phlox and persimmons. The tree is the only species in the monotypic genus Bertholletia. It may live for years or more, and can often reach a thousand years of age.

The bark is grayish and smooth. The genus is named after the French chemist Claude Louis Berthollet. As a result, they can be found outside production areas, in the backyards of homes and near roads and streets in the Brazilian North and Northeast [ citation needed ].

The fruit is heavy and rigid; when the fruits fall, they pose a serious threat to vehicles and people passing under the tree. Brazil nut fruit sinks in water, which can cause clogging of waterways in riparian areas. Brazil nut trees produce fruit almost exclusively in pristine forests, as disturbed forests lack the large-bodied bees of the genera Bombus , Centris , Epicharis , Eulaema , and Xylocopa which are the only ones capable of pollinating the tree's flowers, with different bee genera being the primary pollinators in different areas, and different times of year.

The fruit takes 14 months to mature after pollination of the flowers. The capsule contains a small hole at one end, which enables large rodents like the agouti to gnaw it open. Capuchin monkeys have been reported to open Brazil nuts using a stone as an anvil. In Brazil, it is illegal to cut down a Brazil nut tree. In , global production of Brazil nuts was 84 thousand tonnes , including shells, most of which derive from wild harvests in tropical forests, especially the Amazon. The annual total was consistent since Since most of the production for international trade is harvested in the wild, [18] [19] the business arrangement has been advanced as a model for generating income from a tropical forest without destroying it.

Analysis of tree ages in areas that are harvested shows that moderate and intense gathering takes so many seeds that not enough are left to replace older trees as they die.

In , the European Union imposed strict regulations on the import of Brazilian-harvested Brazil nuts in their shells, as the shells are considered to contain unsafe levels of aflatoxins , a potential cause of liver cancer.

Recommended Dietary Allowance , more even than the Tolerable Upper Intake Level , although the amount of selenium within batches of nuts varies greatly. The high selenium content is used as a biomarker in studies of selenium intake and deficiency.

The shells of Brazil nuts contain high levels of aflatoxins , which can cause liver damage , including possible cancer, if consumed. The following table presents the composition of fatty acids in Brazil nut essential oil: [22]. The lumber from Brazil nut trees not to be confused with Brazilwood is of excellent quality, having diverse uses from flooring to heavy construction. Illegal extraction of timber and land clearances present a continuing threat. Brazil nut oil is used as a lubricant in clocks, in the manufacturing of paint, and in the cosmetics industry.

Engravings in Brazil nut shells are supposed to have used as decorative jewelry by unnamed indigenous tribes in Bolivia, although no extant examples exist. Because of its hardness, the Brazil nutshell is often pulverized and used as an abrasive to polish materials such as metals and ceramics, in the same way jeweler's rouge is used.

Having grown up in a family that did not tolerate racism, we still used the term "nigger toes" for brazil nuts, as it was the first name that I learned for them at age 3 or so and was the only name for them that I knew until age 7 or 8. While it provides a source for the usage, it does not support the other content. The sentence reads: "An old pejorative slang term in the United States was 'nigger toes'.
