The precise trigger of podoconiosis (endemic non-filarial elephantiasis of the lower legs) is unknown, but epidemiological studies have linked the disease with barefoot exposure to red clay soils of volcanic origin; more quantities of smectite, mica, and quartz within the soil were associated with podoconiosis prevalence. mica | Quartz | Smectite Study subjects Ethiopia Details Elephantiasis
