(NaturalNews) British researchers claim they have confirmed that aluminum plays a strong role in the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are nowthe leading causes of death around the world, superseding heart disease. More than 5 million persons in the U.S., where it is the sixth leading cause of death, have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, according to the Alzheimer’s Association; in the U.K., 850,000 people are living with the brain disorder.
By mid century, the number of Alzheimer’s suffers could range from 14 to 16 million.
Aluminum is said to be the most widely used metal on the planet and is found in cookware, aspirin, antacids, baking soda, and flour, as well as vaccines. And let’s not forget the old reliable aluminum foil.
Natural News previously reported that in a 15-year study of French elderly men and women, regular consumption of tap water was associated with aluminum toxicity and increased prevalence of dementia.
Many childhood vaccines also contain aluminum, as Natural News has separately detailed. Aluminum is included in vaccines as an “adjuvant,” a component that boosts the body’s short-term immune response in order to produce antibodies to the vaccine agent faster. This very function may be part of what makes aluminum in vaccines risky. Aluminum also is a neurotoxin that has reportedly been linked to various types of brain damage in both kids and adults.
A 2013 study in the journal Immunologic Research apparently confirmed that aluminum toxicity has a negative impact on the body’s nervous system “across the age span.” In adults, over-exposure to aluminum in the system can lead to age-related neurological conditions that resemble Alzheimer’s disease. Similar outcomes were observed in laboratory animals, the researchers noted. (Click to Article)
