Extremely High Aluminum Levels Found in Brains of Familial Alzheimer’s Patients

Extremely High Aluminum Levels Found in Brains of Familial Alzheimer’s Patients
A group of patients with inherited forms of Alzheimer’s disease was found to have extremely high brain-aluminum levels, leading researchers to suggest there might be a link between genetic vulnerability to the condition and a higher susceptibility to accumulate aluminum in the brain. "Aluminium in brain tissue in familial Alzheimer’s disease" recorded some of the highest brain-aluminum levels ever measured, and suggested that the metal could be a factor in amyloid-beta aggregation. The report was published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology. Abnormally high aluminum levels have been found in the brains of patients with sporadic Alzheimer’s, but no studies had examined levels in patients with familial versions of the neurodegenerative condition. Researchers at Keele University in England autopsied the brains of 12 familial Alzheimer’s patients. The patients were 42 to 86 years old and had been diagnosed by genetic analysis or the presence of disease in close relatives, along with an early disease onset. The team found aluminum in all 144 brain parts examined. Levels above 2 micrograms per gram of tissue are considered concerning, and about 40% of all the examined tissue had content higher than that. More than half the tissue — 58% — had levels higher than 3 micrograms, which is considered a significant hazard. In 11 of the patients, the team found at least one brain region with aluminum levels in a hazardous range. Five patients had levels higher than 10 micrograms, with the highest concentr

    Thank you for this article. Many still argue that there is no link between aluminum and health consequences, despite scientists and researchers showing it’s potential and probable impact.
    There’s a documentary about aluminum called Age of Aluminum, based on book Dirty Little Secret – The Aluminum Files. I strongly reccomend looking into this topic further.
    I would say please do your own research and avoid putting trust in those who try to “debunk” valid claims.

    Aluminium ion is a highly attractive oxygen-containing species.
    This property might hinder many biochemical processes that will lead to the disease. If so,this will lead me to the synthesis of
    a novel reagent for the treatment and recovery.

  3. Wadala A. Bashir says:

    The high concentration of ethanol in wine, and when the later is stored in glass bottles, will lead to the leaching of aluminium by ethanol due to some sort of complex formation. The injection of this complex will lead to the accumulation of aluminium in the body.

    When I was very young back in the late 1940s I remember my father refusing to eat anything cooked in an Aluminum pot nor did he allow the use of aluminum foil in our cooking. He pointed out that Aluminum and Zink both have two electrons in their outer shell (also mercury and lead) but have different masses and conductivity. Zink is used by our body in many processes and if aluminum takes its place it could cause a breakdown in the ability tor our cells to divide and for the electrical impulses used in our nervous system to properly conduct nerve impulses. He convinced me and virtually all the family that Aluminum could cause long term harm to the human body. I am not sure how he came to this theses.. But it’s good to see this theory recognized and now proven.

      My grandmother only used cast iron for cooking. When my mother changed to aluminum my father threw a fit because she would not change back to cast iron. Throughout the years I used stainless steel only to discover that Diane’s stainless 6 long steel trachea contains nickel in it. Now I am considering cast iron for cooking. Have you any comments or thoughts? Thank you.

      Laura, please learn how to read. This article doesn’t establish a link between normal use of aluminum & increased risk of Alzheimer’s. It says that the 144 people who had INHERITED Alzheimer’s had abnormally high aluminum levels in their brains. In other words, there is some mechanism that these people have that pulls aluminum into the brain. Normal people don’t have this mechanism.

      • Joshua,

        Are you spreading the drivel that Bigag and Bigpharm are paying trolls to spread now? How idiotic! There is no such thing as a mechanism that pulls aluminum into the brain. Do you really think that corporations who own 90% of US media, are gonna tell us that their products are poisoning the masses?

        I have met lawyers at the CDC and scientists at the WHO and FDA. The American Medical Association was founded by chemical barons to sell chemicals. Medicines are chemicals. The industry has no idea how the combination of these chemicals affect humanity synergistically. We are truly being experimented on. Buyer beware.

        On this day, at my hospital, they are injecting Nurses with the flu vaccine. Some of them could be pregnant or lactating now. The vaccine insert clearly states it has not been tested on that population, but they are pushing it anyway. Why?

        American’s are sick because we are polluted and malnourished. Not a difficult concept to understand.

        The powers that control the USA since Citizen’s United was upheld would love for us all to believe these diseases are genetic. When we do, the finger is pointed elsewhere and we become victims. The book The China Study proved that nothing is further from the truth; hence. the whole field of epigenetics.

        Trust me, avoid all processed foods, vaccines and public water. We are worth more sick.

        Also, neither zinc nor aluminum are used in cell division or in the nerve cells’ process of sending electrical impulses (that’s sodium & potassium).

        • Lynda L says:

          hmmm…time for a fact-check: 1) “zink” is a valid spelling in the German language for English “zinc,” and was the original spelling of the word (derived from “zinke”); so unless current spelling is critical to the conversation and disintegrates any points made, IT JUST DOESN’T MATTER. 2) Zinc plays a role in cell division. It is essential to enzyme systems that influence cell division and cell proliferation (growth). Look it up: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10801966 3) While this particular article discusses the correlation of aluminum levels in the brain and inherited Alzheimer’s, it is widely accepted, and studies have proven, that aluminum is a neurotoxin and causes aluminum-induced neurodegeneration…follow link to report https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27479193 4) yes, zinc has two valence electrons, and aluminum has 3, but the comment was that “both had two electrons” which is a correct statement…he did not say that both only have two. Aluminum’s valence electrons easily bond to oxygen (it is very reactant) to form an aluminum oxide, which “sticks” to aluminum products; however, inside the body, aluminum, being reactant, can combine with oxygen and other materials, and can inhibit important nutrient absorbption in children; the level at which it becomes a problem varies from individual to individual, much like the amount of calcium in one’s blood system varies. 5) Are you related to Dave Tatman, Director of the Kentucky Automotive Industry Association, who advocated for Hansens Aluminum’s new aluminum extrusion manufacturing plant in Kentucky?

  5. Jen says:

    I believe this a hundred percent as my dad was abusing drogs for over 20 years consuming them from aluminium foil. Now he suffers from Alzheimer’s. I’m sure that this is strongly linked!

  6. Kat says:

    So with in the increase in vaccinations constantly being pushed at us and young children it would be interesting to note the vaccination schedules of the patients tested as aluminum is an adjuvant used in many vaccines. Why is this question often overlooked and left out of studies one must wonder?

  7. Bob Basher says:

    Why don’t the scientists look at the environment? The Govt is spraying 20 Million Tons of Aluminum Sulfate into the atmosphere each year which all settles down on all of us. This is the Geoengineering program. I contend that we all have varying levels of aluminum in our systems right now. We need to stop looking to Big Pharma for a solution, we need to stop spraying the atmosphere with these toxins.

    • Bob, this is true. It is happening. I have met past POTUS candidates who confirm the geo engineering program world wide. Some scientist who acknowledge it is happening are saying it is for the protection of humanity because we have destroyed the eco-system. I am not so trusting. I have visited The Georgia Guidestones.

  8. As a holistic practitioner, I’m going to have to review this issue once again. I know I was convinced of this argument twenty years ago (and have been using stainless steel cookware for many years now), and will mention that quite a few meds today contain “aluminum lake” as a coloring agent, while there are other choices available for this purpose.
