Aluminum Passes Through The Blood-Brain Barrier
Once in your body, aluminum travels around easily, by hitchhiking on your iron transport system. Biological barriers that normally keep other types of toxins out can’t detect it, even your blood-brain barrier. This is why aluminum is particularly detrimental to mental health (7).
Professor Chrisopher Exley of Keele University discovered the first direct link between aluminum exposure and the disease (8).
The case study examined a 66-year-old Caucasian man who died of Alzheimer’s disease and showed significantly elevated brain aluminium content, 2.98 (2.73) μg/g dry weight, n = 46, following occupational exposure to aluminium over a period of 8 years (9).
“The presence of aluminium in the human brain should be a red flag alerting us all to the potential dangers of the aluminium age,” he warns.
“There are neither cures nor effective treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. The role of aluminium in Alzheimer’s disease can be prevented by reducing human exposure to aluminium and by removing aluminium from the body by non-invasive means. Why are we choosing to miss out on this opportunity?”
And if that doesn’t convince you, researchers who conducted another study on the subjects warned:
“Misconceptions about Al (aluminum) bioavailability may have misled scientists regarding the significance of Al in the pathogenesis of AD (Alzheimer’s disease). The hypothesis that Al significantly contributes to AD is built upon very solid experimental evidence and should not be dismissed. Immediate steps should be taken to lessen human exposure to Al, which may be the single most aggravating and avoidable factor related to AD.” (10).
