If I copy that section of the post and quote it, here, the link is truncated into working order (clipboard viewer `correction' - better than I thought...?, or on your end?). Would consider the original fault was a result of my `singular'
editing during original posting, but I've copied the link, from that post, more than once, into other threads without issue and, when I have the time, recheck links in older posts to update/replace those gone `stale.'

Not directly related to `worms' this study on dietary DE on broiler performance doesn't reveal any exemplary `additive' value. Indeed, the research (searching for probiotics/mineral compounds to replace antibiotic growth promoters) indicated that ADE appears to decrease digestibility of `food' : http://docsdrive.com/pdfs/ansinet/ijps/2008/862-871.pdf
Does this mean ADE is worthless againt internal `bugs'? No, but what is available relates to its use a mechanical adjunct in litter (most of us who use are familiar with this), or is being `ground' into nano-particles (lipophilic mechanism again on a much smaller scale and by a different mechanism ).
