Aluminum contamination has been found in number of products on the market, from foods and beverages to pharmaceuticals, which suggests themanufacturing process plays significant part in aluminum contamination.
Aluminum has been found in a shocking number of foods and consumer products, including:baking powder, self-rising flour, salt, baby formula, coffee creamers, baked goods and processed foods, coloring and caking agents.
Aluminum has also been found in products such as: Drugs, antacids, analgesics, anti-diarrheas’, and others; additives such as magnesium stearate.
Cosmetics and personal care products such as antiperspirants, deodorants (including salt crystals, made of alum), lotions, sunscreens, and shampoos
Aluminum products, including foil, cans, juice pouches, tins, and water bottles
What cigarette smoke is to your lungs, is aluminumto your central nervous system.Scientists have been clear. 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. Because, once aluminum is in your tissues, your body has a difficult time releasing it. Aluminum has absolutely no biological purpose. So the less of it you ingest, the better.
There is no way of accurately predicting who might get Alzheimer’s. But, this may be changing. According to researchers at Georgetown University and University of Rochester, there is a blood test that predicts with 90 percent accuracy—and incredibly, with NO false negatives.If further research confirms what researchers expect, this is a medical breakthrough of epic proportions.
How to Detoxify Aluminum
A number of potent chelators can be used to detoxify aluminum. The first step is avoiding further exposure to aluminum. This means avoiding products such as:
- Toothpaste containing aluminum oxyhydroxide
- Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride, aluminum chlorohydrate, or aluminum-zirconium compounds
- Aluminum laminated pouch drinks
- Aluminum cookware
- Aluminum espresso makers
The evidence is clear, aluminum has a big role in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. And, it really shouldn’t 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, because aluminum targets exactly these areas of your brain and nervous system.
