Aluminum

Aluminum toxicity is a serious condition that occurs when a person absorbs excessive amounts of aluminum—a metal that often deposits itself in the brain. Aluminum is the most abundant metallic element in the earth’s crust and is introduced into the body through the digestive system, lungs and skin, before it is absorbed into the tissues.

The highest exposure to aluminum is most frequently due to chronic consumption of aluminum-containing antacid products. Research shows that aluminum builds up in the body over time, creating an increased health hazard as people get older.

Aluminum toxicity can lead to symptoms similar to Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis and can impair kidney function. Aluminum toxicity can also lead to colic, rickets, gastrointestinal problems, poor calcium metabolism, anemia, headaches and decreased liver function. A disturbing pattern of aluminum accumulation and interference with normal neurological function appears to be supported in many scientific arenas.

Recent studies suggest that aluminum contributes to neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, senile and pre-senile dementia, clumsiness of movements, staggering when walking, and the inability to pronounce words properly. Autopsies, performed on people who have died of Alzheimer’s disease, showed accumulations of up to four times the normal amount of aluminum in the nerve cells of the brain. Levels were especially high in the hippocampus, which plays a central role in memory.

There are also geographical links between Alzheimer’s disease and high aluminum in drinking water. Elevated hair aluminum has been observed in Alzheimer’s patients. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, another neurodegenerative disease, may also be linked to aluminum content of water supplies. Behavioral difficulties among schoolchildren have also been associated with elevated levels of aluminum and other neurotoxic heavy metals. Studies show that dyslexic children have higher levels of aluminum in their hair, when compared with controls.
