Charcoal is made from bamboo as well. It has a number of practical uses, like for purifying air and water. It will help keep vegetables longer when kept with them in the fridge. The porosity acts as an absorbent. When made from green bamboo, the water can get collected and it has uses for health benefits and as a nutrient when growing plants. Some added to bath water will add alkalinity for a more hot spring like effect. I read where the liquid was said to be an aid in growing back hair., but I got tired of going around smelling like smoke before finding out if that that was really true or not. :) They sell the liquid extract in garden supply places and hardware stores. I never heard where it's good to drink it.
