Aluminum is one of the most widely used metals

A lot of research is being done about Alzheimers
and aluminum. High concentrations are being studied
for their cause of health problems. The water-soluble
form of aluminum causes the harmful effects, these
particles are called ions.
Some of the reported affects of aluminum in the
- Damage to the central nervous system
- Loss of memory
- Severe trembling

Many everyday products are reported to cause aluminum
toxicity in the body. Small amounts of aluminum
is reported to cause health problems.
Aluminum cookware, utensils, and aluminum foil
[use stainless steel cookware]
Antacids [use digestive enzymes and make dietary
Anti-inflammatories OTC [use Original-MSM]
Antiperspirants [use natural deodorants]
Baking powder [use natural alternatives]
Beverages in aluminum cans [use bottles]
Bleached flour [use 'whole' flour products]
Dental amalgams [replace]
Douche [use natural recipes]
Grated cheese and various commercial cheeses [avoid]
Municipal treated water (tap water) [use purified
Nasal spray [use natural alternatives]
Over-the-counter pain medications (e.g. aspirin)
[use natural alternatives]
Shampoo [use natural shampoo]
Table salt [avoid; use sea salt]
Tobacco (smoke) [avoid]
Toothpaste [use natural toothpaste]
Aluminum toxicity can cause a variety of debilitating
symptoms and health problems including: anemia,
bone softening, calcium deficiency, colic, decreased
liver and kidney function, gastrointestinal disturbances,
headaches, memory loss, muscles pain and weakness,
nervousness, rickets, and speech problems. Source

Alzheimers was almost non existent prior to 1980
and now is number 7 in the selected causes of death.

Aluminum is used in city water purification, "Aluminum
coagulants remove sediment, nutrients, microbes
and dissolved organic carbon, improving greatly
the quality of water. Good coagulation clarifies
water to the point where disinfection is easier,
better and safer." Source
"For years, researchers have puzzled over
the surprisingly high levels of aluminum that turn
up in the shrivelled brains of Alzheimer's disease
victims." "The latest evidence of a link
emerged when Australian scientists reported that
aluminum used to purify water accumulated in the
brains of laboratory rats." Source
"The intake of large amounts of aluminum can
also cause anaemia, osteomalacia (brittle or soft
bones), glucose intolerance, and cardiac arrest
in humans." Source
"DETECTION OF ALUMINUM TOXICITY There
is debate whether blood testing for aluminum has
much value. Blood levels definetly do not indicate
total body load of aluminum. Hair aluminum
levels appear to correlate well with bone levels
of aluminum. Several hair tests may be needed before
aluminum is revealed on the test. This is becasue
the aluminum may be tightly bound within body tissues,
and several months on a nutrition program may be
required to mobilize the aluminum." Source
Information to remove aluminum from the body
"Eat a diet high in fiber.
Include apple pectin in the diet to help remove
aluminum from the body. Use only stainless
steel, glass and iron cookware. Stainless
steel is preferred. Avoid products containing
aluminum or dihydroxyaluminum."
In accordance with FDA regulation, we do not
make any therapeutic claims for any Dietary
Supplements in accordance with the Dietary
Supplement Health and Education Act.
Possible Dietary Supplements that help remove
Apple Pectin is reported to bind with metals
in the colon and excretes them from the body.
Calcium and Magnesium may bind with aluminum
and help remove it from the body.
Coenzyme A, may support the immune systems
Garlic is a natural detoxifier.
Kelp detoxifies the body of excess metals.
Lecithin heals the brain and cell membranes.
L-Glutathione blocks damage from toxic metals
Multivitamin and Mineral Complex stabilizes
vitamin and mineral imbalances in the body.
SAMe reduces stress and nervousness caused
by excess aluminum.
Vitamin B Complex rids the intestinal tract
of excess metals.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects
cell membranes and improves circulation.
Burdock Root, Echinacea, Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba
and Fiber can block damage to the body by
toxic heavy metals and radiation. Source

Summary: Whether one believes Aluminum causes health
problems or not one thing is very intrusting. It
is that Alzheimers and unexplained diseases relating
to mental and immune systems have increased in direct
correlation to the increase in aluminum in products,
drinking water and our environment.
Blood tests are inclusive and are not reliable
in evaluating heavy metals. Hair analysis is one
way to test for heavy metals. The medical profession
still refuses to recognize hair analysis or health
problems from heavy metals if it is not present
in a blood test.
Aluminum is being evaluated by an increase of medical
professionals yet most still refuse to recognize
its relationship to the drastic increase of mental
and immune system diseases within the last 20 years.
DEFEROXAMINE - INJECTION by a physician may remove
aluminum and iron Source
"Although deferoxamine has
not been approved by the FDA for aluminum chelation,
deferoxamine has been used since 1980 as a first-line
of treatment in cases of aluminum toxicity.
(Important: Remember that deferoxamine is used
to chelate iron. Therefore, during chelation
treatment for aluminum, iron would also be chelated.)
EDTA may also be used (Wentz 2000)." Source

|Quote "Choosing foods with high fiber
content and supplementing the diet with additional
fiber (e.g., psyllium, acacia, apple pectin,
and oat and wheat bran) aid the body in ridding
itself of toxins. When adding fiber to your
diet, use small amounts at first so that your
digestive system can adjust to the added fiber.
If gas or bloating occurs, reduce the amount
until tolerance is achieved."
