Aluminum has been long known to be neurotoxic, with mounting
evidence that chronic exposure is a factor in many neurological
diseases, including dementia, autism, and Parkinson’s disease.
However, definitive scientific proof is difficult to establish
due to the the lack of longitudinal studies, as well as
pushback from industries that use aluminum in their products.
Despite the shortage of conclusive studies, mounting scientific
evidence leaves little room for doubt.
UK unequivocally shows high levels of
aluminum in the brain of an individual exposed to aluminum at
work, who later died from Alzheimer’s disease.
While aluminum exposure has been implicated in Alzheimer’s and
a number of other neurological diseases, this case claims to be
“the first direct link” between Alzheimer’s disease and
elevated brain aluminum following occupational
The Aluminum-Alzheimer’s Link
The 66-year-old Caucasian man developed an aggressive form of
early onset Alzheimer’s disease after eight years of
occupational exposure to aluminum dust, which scientists
conclude “suggests a prominent role for the olfactory system
and lungs in the accumulation of aluminum in he brain.”
This is not the first time high aluminum levels have been found
in the tissues of someone who died from Alzheimer’s disease.
For example, in 2004, high aluminum levels were found in the
tissues of a British woman who died of
This was 16 years after an industrial accident dumped 20 metric
tons of aluminum sulphate into her local drinking water. And
there are many studies showing elevated aluminum levels in
living individuals displaying a wide range of neurological
The ‘Dark Side’ of Aluminum Exposed
The featured documentary, The Age of Aluminum, reveals
the “dark side” of this toxic metal, exploring the scientific
links between aluminum and diseases such as breast cancer and
neurological disorders. Also exposed is how aluminum mining and
manufacturing have created acute ecological problems across the
globe, leading to environmental disasters in Hungary, South
Africa, and the UK. In the film, neuroscientist Christopher
“Many researchers are beginning to accept that aluminum has
some sort of role to play in neurodegenerative diseases such as
Alzheimer’s. Whether it does in others is still an open
question, but Alzheimer’s is really coming into focus and it’s
fairly clear that the body burden of aluminum from all the
sources to which humans are exposed may be contributing to
Does Your Frozen Dinner Come with a Side of Aluminum?
Aluminum contamination in our food supply is a more significant
problem than you may think. In a study published in the journal
Europe, researchers analyzed 1,431 non-animal
foods and beverages for aluminum content.
This is what they found:
-77.8 percent had an aluminum concentration of up to 10 mg/kg
-17.5 percent had aluminum concentrations between 10 and 100
-4.6 percent of the samples had aluminum concentrations in
excess of 100 mg/kg
Aluminum compounds are often used as additives in foodstuffs.
Additional contamination occurs when
food comes into contact with aluminum equipment and other items
because aluminum is unstable in the presence of acids and
Aluminum equipment has a protective oxide film, but this
can be damaged as fine fissures develop from normal wear and
tear. the study, Table 3 shows the aluminum content of
everything from flour and baking mixes to soup, chocolate, beer
and wine, and herbal teas. Some products show a wide range of
contamination levels, and others are more homogenous.
goods are very high because of the common practice of baking
and storing foods on aluminum trays. The report has numerous other tables
that demonstrate how prevalent this toxin is in your food.
If you cook your food in aluminum foil, you are introducing
your own contamination. One investigation found that cooking
meats in aluminum foil increases their aluminum concentration.
Researchers concluded, “eating meals prepared in aluminum foil
may carry a health risk by adding to other aluminum sources.”
As with many toxins, it isn’t one exposure here and there that
is so concerning—it’s the cumulative effect of many
smaller exposures over time that can lead to a toxic metal
overload and erosion of your health. According to a 2006 study,
cooking meat in aluminum foil increased aluminum levels as
-Red meats cooked in aluminum foil showed an increase in
aluminum by 89 to 378 percent
-Poultry increased by 76 to 214 percent
-Aluminum levels increased with higher cooking temperatures and
longer cooking times
Aluminum Heads Straight to Your Brain
Aluminum is to your central nervous system as cigarette smoke
is to your lungs. Scientists are clear that toxic metals damage
brain tissue and lead to degenerative disease by producing
oxidative stress—and aluminum is one of the worst offenders.
With Alzheimer’s rates
skyrocketing, today’s multiple avenues of aluminum exposure
are of great concern. Just as with particles in the
environment, once aluminum is in your tissues, your body has a
difficult time releasing it. This toxic metal serves absolutely
no biological purpose, so the less of it you ingest, the
Once in your body, it travels around easily, unimpeded,
piggybacking on your iron transport system. It crosses
biological barriers that normally keep other types of toxins
out, such as your blood-brain barrier. Over time, aluminum can
accumulate in your brain and do serious damage your
neurological health—regardless of your age. Aluminum toxicity
may be doing as much damage to our children as to our seniors.
Brain Inflammation in Both Children and Adults
Vaccines present a particularly problematic source of toxic
metal exposure. Aluminum is the most commonly used vaccine
adjuvant and is considered “safe” even though research shows
it may induce serious immunological disorders and
neurological complications in humans.
In the video above, Dr. David Ayoub discusses how the
aluminum in vaccines may be even
more dangerous than mercury. The number of
aluminum-containing vaccines children receive
today has quadrupled over the past 30
years. In the 1970s, children got only four
aluminum-containing vaccines in their first 18 months of
life, but now they typically receive 17.
And as children’s aluminum burden has increased, so has the prevalence of
childhood neurological disorders. In one school, 90 percent
of the children developed ADHD during the course of a single
school year, and their toxicity profiles all revealed massive
amounts of aluminum.
Aluminum is also in vaccines and is used as an adjuvant.
If you go by the aluminum content on vaccine labels, the
amount kids are getting is excessive, but if you add in the
aluminum NOT listed on the labels—”accidental exposure” due
to contamination—it’s a much more serious problem. Dr. Ayoub
cites one study that found five to six times more
aluminum in vaccines than what was actually listed on
When you review the signs and symptoms of aluminum toxicity,
they are shockingly similar to the symptoms of autism, ADHD,
Parkinson’s, and other neurological diseases. Vaccine
adjuvants can cause serious chronic
brain inflammation. Aluminum targets your cerebellum and
autonomic nervous system—the part responsible for biological
processes over which you have no conscious control
(breathing, blood pressure, balance, coordination, etc.).
When you look at the MSDS sheet for aluminum, you will see
symptoms strikingly similar to those in common neurological
diseases, including memory problems, speech impairments and
aphasia, dementia, depression, muscle weakness, motor
disturbances, and other neurological difficulties.
The list goes on and on.
How to Detoxify Aluminum
There are a number of potent chelators you can use to
detoxify aluminum. Clearly, your first step would be to avoid
further exposure to aluminum. This means avoiding products
- Toothpaste containing aluminium
- Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride, aluminum
chlorohydrate, or aluminum-zirconium compounds
- Aluminum laminated pouch drinks
- Aluminum cookware
- Aluminum espresso makers
For serious Alzheimer’s disease, the following chelating
agents can be helpful:
- Silica-rich water, such as Fiji
water, which contains 83 Mg of
silica per liter. Research published in 2013 showed that
drinking up to one liter of a silicon-rich mineral water
daily for 12 weeks effectively excreted aluminum via the
urine, without detrimental effects on essential metals such
as iron and copper. According to the authors: “We have
provided preliminary evidence that over 12 weeks of
silicon-rich mineral water therapy the body burden of
aluminum fell in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and,
concomitantly, cognitive performance showed clinically
relevant improvements in at least 3 out of 15
- Melatonin: Research shows that
melatonin has a metal binding role and is a useful
supplement in the treatment of neurological disorders in
which oxidative stress is involved, which includes
Alzheimer’s. Melatonin can travel freely across all
cellular barriers, facilitating the removal of toxic metals
such as aluminum. It also appears to suppress the oxidative
activity of aluminum in your brain.
- Anything that raises your glutathione.
Your body synthesizes glutathione from three amino acids:
cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. Raw fruits and
vegetables, particularly avocado, asparagus, grapefruit,
strawberries, orange, tomato, cantaloupe, broccoli, okra,
peach, zucchini, and spinach are rich in the precursors
glutamate and glycine. Dietary sources of cysteine include
eggs, meat, red peppers, garlic, onions, Brussels sprouts,
whey protein, and wheat germ. Other helpful treatments for
improved glutathione metabolism include:
- Exercise: Exercise affects your adenosine
triphosphate (ATP) levels needed to help produce
- Optimizing your vitamin D levels
through sun exposure: There’s some evidence vitamin D
increases intracellular glutathione levels
- Epsom salt baths
- MSM supplementation
- The supplement N-acetyl L-cysteine (NAC) may also be
useful. NAC is the rate-limiting nutrient for the
formation of the intracellular antioxidant glutathione
- Curcumin: Research suggests that
curcumin has a protective effect against
aluminum-induced damage by modulating the extent of
oxidative stress. It also decreases beta-amyloid plaques
associated with Alzheimer’s, delays neuron degradation,
chelates metals, decreases microglia formation, and has an
overall anti-inflammatory, antioxidant effect. Studies have
shown that curcumin can help improve memory in Alzheimer’s
patients. There are some contraindications that curcumin is not
recommended if you have biliary tract obstruction (as it
stimulates bile secretion), gallstones, obstructive
jaundice, or acute biliary colic.
It can no longer be argued that aluminum does not have a role
in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s—the evidence
is very clear and growing. It really should not be surprising
that people with aluminum toxicity display many of the same
symptoms as those with dementia, Parkinson’s, ADHD, autism,
and other neurological diseases, becausealuminum targets
exactly these areas of your brain and nervous system.
The best way to protect yourself is to be careful about your
choices in food and personal products, and minimize your use
of vaccines and other drugs that are often contaminated with
Optimizing your dietary sulfur is also essential, as your
body needs sulfur to manufacture its number one weapon
against aluminum overload: glutathione.
By taking a few steps
to protect yourself, you’ll minimize your exposure while
maximizing your body’s ability to rid itself of this toxic
metal, which will move you toward a long and healthy life
well into your senior years.
