Prove Link Between Aluminum and Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease
By: Christina England, BA Hons
today's world, aluminum is omnipresent, building up within our system from
everyday products. Now, we are learning that aluminum toxicity can manifest
itself in alarming ways.
As many of us
are aware, the human body is being bombarded with aluminum in everyday products.
Many of our foods, vaccinations, medications, baby products, cosmetics,
cleaning products and even soft furnishings contain aluminum and it appears
that we are powerless to prevent the ever-increasing onslaught.
This is extremely
worrying because, according to Professor Exley, a scientist from Keele University
in Staffordshire, aluminum can accumulate in the body and has the potential
to do harm wherever it ends up.
Little Background Information
a 2014 press release, Exley stated:
biological availability of aluminium or the ease with which aluminium
reacts with human biochemistry means that aluminium in the body is unlikely
to be benign, though it may appear as such due to the inherent robustness
of human physiology. The question is raised as to ‘how do you know
if you are suffering from chronic aluminium toxicity?’ How do we
know that Alzheimer’s disease is not the manifestation of chronic
aluminium toxicity in humans?
some point in time the accumulation of aluminium in the brain will achieve
a toxic threshold and a specific neurone or area of the brain will stop
coping with the presence of aluminium and will start reacting to its presence.
If the same neurone or brain tissue is also suffering other insults, or
another on-going degenerative condition, then the additional response
to aluminium will exacerbate these effects. In this way aluminium may
cause a particular condition to be more aggressive and perhaps to have
an earlier onset - such occurrences have already been shown in Alzheimer’s
disease related to environmental and occupational exposure to aluminium.”
2014, the link between Alzheimer’s disease and aluminum was largely
unproven, but since then a lot has changed.
Between Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease and Aluminum Now Proven
For many years,
scientists have claimed that a link between aluminum and Alzheimer's disease
has existed. However, up until now, there has been little evidence to support
their claims, which has left the scientific community confused.
to scientists from Keele University in Staffordshire, recent studies have
now confirmed that aluminum does play a role, in some, if not all, cases
of Alzheimer’s disease.
In an article
titled, Strong evidence linking Aluminum to Alzheimer’s, recently
published on The Hippocratic Post website, Exley explained that:
already know that the aluminium content of brain tissue in late-onset
or sporadic Alzheimer’s disease is significantly higher than is
found in age-matched controls. So, individuals who develop Alzheimer’s
disease in their late sixties and older also accumulate more aluminium
in their brain tissue than individuals of the same age without the disease.
higher levels of aluminium have been found in the brains of individuals,
diagnosed with an early-onset form of sporadic (usually late onset) Alzheimer’s
disease, who have experienced an unusually high exposure to aluminium
through the environment (e.g. Camelford) or through their workplace. This
means that Alzheimer’s disease has a much earlier age of onset,
for example, fifties or early sixties, in individuals who have been exposed
to unusually high levels of aluminium in their everyday lives.”
most recent study, published by the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine
and Biology in December 2016, titled: Aluminium in brain tissue in familial
Alzheimer’s disease, is one of the many studies that he and his team
have conducted on the subject of aluminum over the years. However, this
study in particular is believed to be of significant value, because it is
the first time that scientists have measured the level of aluminum in the
brain tissue of individuals diagnosed with familial Alzheimer’s disease.
disease or AD is considered to be familial if two or more people in a family
suffer from the disease.)
their paper, the concentrations of aluminum found in brain tissue donated
by individuals who died with a diagnosis of familial AD, was the highest
level ever measured in human brain tissue.
now show that some of the highest levels of aluminium ever measured in
human brain tissue are found in individuals who have died with a diagnosis
of familial Alzheimer’s disease.
levels of aluminium in brain tissue from individuals with familial Alzheimer’s
disease are similar to those recorded in individuals who died of an aluminium-induced
encephalopathy while undergoing renal dialysis.”
Alzheimer’s disease is an early-onset form of the disease with first
symptoms occurring as early as 30 or 40 years of age. It is extremely
rare, perhaps 2-3% of all cases of Alzheimer’s disease. Its bases
are genetic mutations associated with a protein called amyloid-beta, a
protein which has been heavily linked with the cause of all forms of Alzheimer’s
with familial Alzheimer’s disease produce more amyloid beta and
the onset of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are much earlier
Do Their Findings Mean?
To explain the
team’s findings in more depth, Exley wrote:
new research may suggest that these genetic predispositions to early onset
Alzheimer’s disease are linked in some way to the accumulation of
aluminium (through ‘normal’ everyday human exposure) in brain
is the main risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease and aluminium accumulates
in human brain tissue with ageing. Environmental or occupational exposure
to aluminium results in higher levels of aluminium in human brain tissue
and an early onset form of sporadic Alzheimer’s disease. The genetic
predispositions which are used to define familial or early-onset Alzheimer’s
disease also predispose individuals to higher levels of brain aluminium
at a much younger age.
is accepted as a known neurotoxin, for example being the cause of dialysis
encephalopathy, and its accumulation in human brain tissue at any age
can only contribute to any ongoing disease state or toxicity.”
is extremely worrying for any pregnant women who have a family history of
Alzheimer’s disease, especially if they are considering being vaccinated
during pregnancy. Out of the nine vaccinations covering 13 diseases that
are currently being offered to pregnant women, five contain aluminum, which
could potentially put the baby at greater risk.

Under the Age of 2 Are Being Vaccinated with 4,925 mcg of Aluminum
If babies are
being exposed to an unusually high level of aluminum from the moment that
they are conceived, then surely, they could face greater risk of neurological
disease later in life. The mere fact that scientists have discovered exceptionally
high levels of aluminum in the brain tissue of individuals who have died
with a diagnosis of familial Alzheimer’s disease, should, if nothing
else, alert parents to the dangers of aluminum.
However, it appears
this is not the case, as according to one researcher, despite the fact that
aluminum is a known neurotoxin, infants and young children are being repeatedly
vaccinated with vaccinations containing aluminum during critical periods
of brain development.
In his recent
paper titled, Aluminum in Childhood Vaccines Is Unsafe, Neil Z. Miller explained
that not only are babies being bombarded with vaccinations containing aluminum
in the womb, but recent changes to the vaccine schedule have resulted in
babies receiving a substantial rise in the number of vaccinations containing
aluminum at an earlier age.
to the mercury phase-out (pre-2000), babies received 3,925 micrograms
(mcg) of aluminum in their first year-and-a-half of life. After pneumococcal
and hepatitis A vaccines were added to the immunization schedule, babies
began receiving 4,925 mcg of aluminum during the same age period—a
25% increase (Figure 1). In 2011, CDC recommended that pregnant women
receive a pertussis vaccine (Tdap), which also contains aluminum. Studies
show that aluminum crosses the placenta and accumulates in fetal tissue.
Thus, millions of babies in utero, infants, and young children were injected
with, and continue to receive, unnaturally high doses of neurotoxic substances—mercury
and aluminum—long after unsuspecting parents were led to believe
that vaccines were purified and made safe.”
other words, today’s children now receive an extra 1000 micrograms
of aluminum in their childhood vaccinations in the first 18 months of life.
This increase, plus the aluminum they have already received in utero, has
the potential to lead to a lifetime of health problems.
that there are more and more vaccinations containing aluminum being added
to the vaccine schedule, which can lead to multiple health problems. To
demonstrate just how dangerous aluminum can be once it is injected into
the body, Miller detailed study after study outlining the serious effects
that this neurotoxin can have on the body.
studies provide compelling evidence that injected aluminum can be detrimental
to health. Aluminum is capable of remaining in cells long after vaccination
and may cause neurologic and autoimmune disorders. During early development,
the child’s brain is more susceptible to toxins and the kidneys
are less able to eliminate them. Thus, children have a greater risk than
adults of adverse reactions to aluminum in vaccines.”
is extremely worrying, especially if you have a family history of Alzheimer’s
disease, as according to Mr. Miller, rats that were given extremely small
amounts of aluminum, “showed behavioral, biochemical, and histological
changes similar to those associated with Alzheimer’s disease.”
metals such as aluminum do not belong in prophylactic medications administered
to children, teenagers, or adults. Vaccines are normally recommended for
healthy people, so safety (and efficacy) standards must be impeccable.
Parents, especially, should not be compelled to permit their loved ones
to receive multiple injections of toxic metals that could increase their
risk of neurodevelopmental and autoimmune ailments. Safe alternatives
to current disease prevention technologies are urgently needed.”
alternatives may be needed, but with more and more vaccinations being made
mandatory, parents feel as if they have little choice but to play Russian
roulette with their children’s lives.
to Reduce the Body’s Burden of Aluminum
As a solution,
Professor Exley has suggested that we aim to reduce the accumulation of
aluminum in our brains through everyday activities. One of the ways that
Professor Exley has suggested to help reduce the accumulation of aluminum
in the body is by drinking a silicon-rich mineral water. According to Exley,
silicon protects the body against the toxicity of aluminum, and by drinking
a silicon-rich mineral water, his studies have revealed that the aluminum
is removed from the human body through the excretion of urine.
