“Magic Rock” Zeolites are microporous crystalline aluminosilicates resulting from the reaction of volcanic rocks, ash layers and an alkaline groundwater. Zeolites are incorporated the group contain natural silica similarly diatomaceous earth. Zeolites situate apart among the many families of porous materials. They have a number of significant practical properties such as a high adsorption capacity and the ability to cation exchange because of their structure. The present reviews focus on the application of natural zeolites as they were naturally available and abundant, low cost and stable.

Knowledge Attitude and Practice of Body Donation in Medical Students: A descriptive Study
The aim of the study was to ascertain the knowledge attitude and practices of Indian medical students towards post mortem body donation. An online questionnaire was sent to 150 students who have witnessed and performed human cadaver dissection. Even though most of the respondents are aware of the existence of the practice of body donation (98% aware) and are direct beneficiaries of it, a substantial number of them lack an understanding of the laws governing body donation (only 32.7% are aware of the Indian Anatomy Act, 1948 and 26.5% of the Karnataka Anatomy Act, 1957?) and a majority are hesitant to donate their own body for medical research and learning (46.9% are willing to donate). The reason for unwillingness to donate their body could be stemming from hesitation to be the first one in their peer/family circle to pledge to donate (87.8% have no one close to them who has donated), an apprehension that their body will be ill-treated (26.5%), opposition from family/friends (61.2%) and religious beliefs (53.1%).
