Aluminum and Microbes: Research Linking these Factors to Dementia

Dementia Causations 

The epidemic of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease effects countless numbers of families worldwide, mine included. In an effort to understand the root cause of this relatively new phenomenon, I spent over 80 hours reading through scores of research studies and the data that I uncovered may startle you, but also give you hope. Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease is not “normal” or our fate. There are clear causative factors which can be mitigated once you understand them. There is a lot of information to cover so this exposé is being presented in three parts to make it easier to digest. This week, part two takes a look at the research linking aluminum, microbes and dementia. If you missed part one click here: Mercury: Research on the Environmental Neurotoxin’s Link to DementiaNext week, the third part will offer possible solutions.

Aluminum and Dementia


In 2011, The International Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease published a study stating, “It is widely accepted that aluminum is a recognized neurotoxin, and that it could cause cognitive deficiency and dementia when it enters the brain and may have various adverse effects on the CNS.” [1] It has been confirmed that aluminum crosses the blood brain barrier, enters the brain, and accumulates. [1, 2] In fact, researchers have found, “the most prominent aluminum accumulations occur within the neurofibrillary tangle itself”. [3, 4] In the past, aluminum toxicity was an issue for dialysis patients when aluminum was not removed from the water used during treatment. The Clinic for Neurology and Psychiatry, Institute of Medical Biochemistry, and Medical Clinic of the University of Graz in Austria studied this concern and wrote “It can be concluded from our finding that in dialyzed patients there is a correlation between serum aluminum levels and the appearance of dementia and EEG changes.” [5] A publication in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease written by a scientist from the Neural Dynamics Research Group, University of British Columbia concluded, “The hypothesis that aluminum significantly contributes to Alzheimer’s is built upon very solid experimental evidence and should not be dismissed. Immediate steps should be taken to lessen human exposure to aluminum, which may be the single most aggravating and avoidable factor related to Alzheimer’s Disease”. [6] Researchers from Toronto General Hospital concluded, “The evidence thus far indicates that aluminum is toxic to the brain and it is probable that it has a pathogenic role in Alzheimer's disease”. [2] In areas where there is elevated aluminum in drinking water, there is a higher incidence of AD. [7] Professor Chris Exley from Keele University in England has been researching aluminum for over 30 years, his nickname is Mr. Aluminum. In one of his research articles published in Frontiers in Neurology, he makes the case that “an individual's exposure to aluminum is impacting upon their health and is already contributing to, if not causing, chronic diseases such as Alzheimer's disease.” [8] Two scientists from the University of British Columbia have also studied this exposure and in one of their publications stated, “The literature demonstrates clearly negative impacts of aluminum on the nervous system across the age span. In adults, aluminum exposure can lead to apparently age-related neurological deficits resembling Alzheimer's and has been linked to this disease”. [9]

As far as sources of aluminum, childhood vaccines are responsible for a significant early exposure. Approximately 17 of the vaccines administered by the age of 18 months contain an aluminum adjuvant. Proponents claim that the exposure is lower than what is ingested through food and not an issue. But research into how the aluminum adjuvant responds when injected into muscle shows a different story. An article published in Frontiers in Neurology stated, “poorly biodegradable aluminum-coated particles injected into muscle are promptly phagocytosed in muscle and the draining lymph nodes, and can disseminate within phagocytic cells throughout the body and slowly accumulate in brain. This strongly suggests that long-term adjuvant biopersistence within phagocytic cells is a prerequisite for slow brain translocation and delayed neurotoxicity.” [10] In other words, injecting children with vaccines containing aluminum isn’t as benign as proponents would like us to believe.

Other sources of aluminum exposure in our daily lives include: most antiperspirants, toothpastes containing aluminum oxides, most cosmetics, infant formula, beverages in cans, antacids and aspirin, black and green teas, baking powders unless labeled aluminum-free, many non-dairy creamers, processed cheeses such as American cheese, most pickles, table salt, aluminum foil, aluminum pots and pans, throw away aluminum pans/containers, foil wrapped candies and other products, aluminum siding, vehicle emissions, emissions from manufacturing facilities and other industrial activities, and water that has been purified using aluminum sulphate.

where is part three?

There are also high levels of aluminum nanoparticles in the air we breath now, from the ongoing geoengineering or the jet fuel, neither want to take responsibility for it, but that dosnt change the fact that it is there and it's getting in our brains and blocking out the sun with a dingy haze almost every day now

I misplace a case of coke. Found it 2 years later. One can was full, one half full and all the others were empty. That coke ate its way right out of the cans. If this coke has been drank before it started leaking, it would equal to lots of aluminum in your body. What is the safe period to store Sodas. Even in some stores that case in the back on the lower shelf might have been there for a very long time.
