First Case Study to Show Direct Link Between Alzheimer’s and Aluminum Toxicity - This Can NOT be Ignored!

The link between aluminum and many neurological diseases, including dementia, autism, and Parkinson's disease has been known for some time, as well as being identified as a neurotoxin.

But a new study by Keele University in the UK1 has revealed an indisputable link between an individual who had high levels of aluminum in the brain due to exposure to aluminum at work, who later died from Alzheimer's disease. 

This is said to be the first direct link that proves the evidence that has been surround the issue.

Identifying The Link

The patients was a 66 year-old Caucasian man who developed an aggressive form of early onset Alzheimer's disease after eight years of exposure to aluminum dust due to his occupation. Scientists concluded this "suggests a prominent role for the olfactory system and lungs in the accumulation of aluminum in the brain."

The link between aluminum exposure and Alzheimer's goes back further than this. In 2004, the link was detected when high aluminum levels were found in the tissues of a British woman who had died of early-onset Alzheimer's.16 years previously due an industrial accident 20 metric tons of aluminum sulfate was deposited into her local drinking water. There are also a number of other studies which link high aluminum levels to a wide range of neurological disorders..3

Aluminum Risks The Workplace

If you work in the fields of mining, factory work, welding, and agriculture you are at risk from daily contact with aluminum, and it is present in cigarette smoke, whether directly inhaled or by passive smoking.

When you inhale aluminum dust or vapors, it sends aluminum particles directly into your lungs in a highly absorbable form, where they pass into your bloodstream and are distributed into different parts of you body, such as the bones and brain. Aluminum powder has been proven to cause pulmonary fibrosis, and aluminum factory workers are more prone to suffer from asthma.

Aluminum: it's everywhere

Aluminum naturally occurs in soil, water, and air, however we are adding to the naturally occurring aluminum with the mining and processing of aluminum ores, manufacturing of aluminum products, and the operation of coal-fired power plants. It is present in the air and is deposited in our water supplies every time it rains. Living in an industrial area puts you at a higher exposure than the normal average.6

The CDC states that the average adult in the US consumes around seven to nine mg of aluminum a day in food, and a smaller amount from air and water.

Laboratory tests have shown that aluminum is present in a shockingly high number of foods and other products we consume day-to-day, many you wouldn't expect such as: 

Foods: it was found in baking powder, self rising flour, salt, baby formula, coffee creamers, baked goods and processed foods, coloring and caking agents 

Drugs: antacids, analgesics, anti-diarrhea tablets, additives such as magnesium stearate 

Vaccines—Hepatitis A and B, Hib, DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), pneumococcal vaccine, 

Gardasil (HPV) 

Personal care products: antiperspirants, deodorants (including salt crystals, made of aluminum), lotions, sunscreens, shampoos and other cosmetics 

Aluminum products: cans, foil, juice pouches, tins, and water bottles

Detoxify Aluminum at home

You at home can take steps to reducing the amount of aluminum you come into contact with daily, thus reducing your risk of Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders. Reduce, or better still, eradicate altogether your use of:

  • Toothpaste containing aluminium oxyhydroxide16
  • Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride, aluminum chlorohydrate, or aluminum-zirconium compounds 
  • Aluminum laminated pouch drinks 
  • Aluminum cookware 
  • Aluminum espresso makers 

The evidence that aluminum is bad news for our brains' neurology is overwhelming. With these steps you can decrease you risk of of harming your brain and other organs with aluminum exposure. Daily sulphur supplements are also a great weapon in the fight against aluminum as it needs it to create glutathione which actively fights aluminum build-up.
