Published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, the study of brain tissue from 12 donors found extremely high concentrations of aluminium, in excess of 10 μg/g tissue dry wt. These levels are higher than almost all previous measurements of brain aluminium.
Cases of sporadic Alzheimer's disease, which accounts for most cases, has previously been linked to unusually high exposure to aluminium through the environment or workplace. However, these earlier studies have failed to explain the causes of Alzheimer's in those genetically predisposed to the disease.
Currently, Alzheimer's disease affects more than five million Americans and more than 40 million people worldwide and is the sixth leading cause of death. There is no promise of a cure, no treatment on the horizon, nothing mainstream medicine has offered to even slow its intrusion. It strikes unpredictably, silently crippling neurons, robbing its victims of their memories, shrinking their brains, their independence and judgment, erasing their personalities and eventually claiming their lives.
