Aluminum toxicity may cause brain and spine problems.
Aluminum may be harmful to the brain:
Researchers have evaluated work related exposure (working in a factory with high aluminum concentrations) and environmental exposure (cooking on aluminum foil or aluminum pots and pans).
Some people who work for a long time in Aluminium Factories have been found to have Cognitive Impairment (problems thinking and remembering).
Some researchers have determined that long term aluminum exposure may be associated with Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia associated with down’s syndrome and cognitive decline in renal dialysis (kidney failure) patients.
Other scientists have studied brain tissue and determined that there may be a significantly elevated content of aluminum. This association (patients with these maladies have more aluminum in their brains than normal) has been reported in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorder and multiple sclerosis.
Aluminum may be especially dangerous to the developing brain (the brain of a baby or a fetus). Scientists have reported that high concentrations of aluminum may negatively alter stem cells in the brain.
Heavy metal and your spine:
Researchers have reported that too much environmental exposure to aluminum and other metals (mercury, cadmium, lead, nickel, chromium, iron) may result in osteoporosis and increased fracture risk.
