Study identifies high levels of aluminium in the brains of familial Alzheimer's disease victims

A recently published study of the brains of familial Alzheimer's disease victims has found extremely high levels of aluminium in the tissue, announced Dr. Christopher Exley, researcher and professor at Keele University. This is the first study of its kind to focus on those genetically predisposed to Alzheimer's, using fluorescence microscopy to identify aluminium in the brain tissue.

"For half a century or more, there has been a strong link between human exposure to aluminium and the incidence of Alzheimer's disease," says Exley, who worked on the study with fellow researchers, Ambreen Mirza, Andrew King, and Claire Troakes. "These findings are unequivocal in their confirmation of the role of aluminium in some, if not all, Alzheimer's disease."

Published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, the study of brain tissue from 12 donors found extremely high concentrations of aluminium, in excess of 10 μg/g tissue dry wt. These levels are higher than almost all previous measurements of brain aluminium.

Cases of sporadic Alzheimer's disease, which accounts for most cases, has previously been linked to unusually high exposure to aluminium through the environment or workplace. However, these earlier studies have failed to explain the causes of Alzheimer's in those genetically predisposed to the disease.

Currently, Alzheimer's disease affects more than five million Americans and more than 40 million people worldwide and is the sixth leading cause of death. There is no promise of a cure, no treatment on the horizon, nothing mainstream medicine has offered to even slow its intrusion. It strikes unpredictably, silently crippling neurons, robbing its victims of their memories, shrinking their brains, their independence and judgment, erasing their personalities and eventually claiming their lives.

    Epsom salt baths will chelate aluminum.. Also, transdermal iodine tinticure will serve. (once a week.)

    We have have heard about excess aluminium in alzheimers patients yet most of us eat aluminum every day in the use of popular baking powder.  Non-aluminum baking powder is available but is seldom if ever used in commercial baked goods and mixes.  I have read many times over concern using aluminum cooking utensils but never about baking powder.  If you want to avoid ingesting aluminum you not only have to cook all your own cakes, quick breads, pancakes, etc. and check you have bought non-aluminum baking powder, which I have found is not even available in some stores.  It is much like reading of the lead dangers warnings on plastic water faucets,and leaded crystal but no mention of the tons    of lead pumped in molecular form in the atmosphere from the old leaded gasoline.   Since lead is so heavy it does not wash away easily, so every time the street sweeper goes down the street it throws molecular lead back into the air.  I guess if we are told to watch out for plastic faucets,  leaded crystal, and aluminium pans we are supposed to ignore the main sources of hazardous metal consumption.

    Maybe those with Alzheimer's simply cannot effectively clear aluminum from their bodies rather than al being the cause of the condition.

    This post is not for Chemtrail  deniers , ..... Is not aluminum dust what is being reported  as the largest portion of the poisons they spray over us almost daily ?

  5. Cat Houston Cat Houston United States says:

    I'm wary of deodorant containing aluminum, which is why some natural companies make it without. Putting something on your skin DAILY your entire life, should be reviewed carefully. They are also full of parabens, which they find in HUGE amounts in breast cancer tissue, so I also make sure it is paraben free. Search google for scholarly articles.

  6. Dean Mindock Dean Mindock United States says:

    Seems like the fact that vaccines contain a good dose of aluminum needs to be stated. This stuff goes straight to the brain and induces free radicals, lots of them. Each shot adds more to the load. Other sources are:
    -soy, especially in tofu
    -Chemtrails, nano-sized aluminum are present and always falling to the Earth.
