Ongoing Research Shows Aluminum Exposure a Likely Contributor to Alzheimer’s Disease
AluminumA new review article entitled “Why industry propaganda and political interference cannot disguise the inevitable role played by human exposure to aluminum in neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease,” published in Frontiers in Neurology, argues the role of aluminum in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. The study author, Professor Christopher Exley, Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry, Aluminum and Silicon Research Group at The Birchall Centre's Lennard-Jones Laboratories at Keele University, UK is a renowned researcher on human exposure to aluminum and its impact on disease. In this review, Professor Exley discusses the human brain as a target for aluminum, and its accumulation throughout a person's lifetime. As a result, this accumulation inevitably has detrimental effects to brain function and thus represents a potential driver for Alzheimer’s disease. The author highlights the urgency to test the aluminum-Alzheimer’s disease link, which will only be possible by controlling aluminum levels, particularly by decreasing its burden on the brain and how it impacts Alzheimer’s incidence, onset, and aggressiveness. “The biological availability of aluminum or the ease with which aluminum reacts with human biochemistry means that aluminum in the body i
