There have been unconfirmed suspicions that aluminum toxicity is at least a factor for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. There seems to be no doubt that aluminum is a neurotoxin, but whether there is an aluminum link to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, has not been fully explored just recently.
A new study, “Aluminium [British spelling] in brain tissue in familial Alzheimer’s disease” does just that. A pathological brain study of deceased individuals whose bodies were donated by family members. It was conducted in King’s College of London and Keele University of Staffordshire, UK, and published December 2016 in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology.
The association of aluminum as a neurotoxin related to several neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), is often ignored or marginalized even as AD and other neurological disorders continue to rise in epidemic proportions.
This may be due to massive vested interests that use aluminum in ways that depend on its injection into the body or its inadvertent breathing in of nanoparticles.
Alzheimer Aluminum Study Details
The study abstract states:
“We have made the first ever measurements of aluminium [British spelling] in brain tissue from 12 donors diagnosed with familial Alzheimer’s disease.”
Later in the text they defined familial Alzheimer’s disease (eFAD) as early onset AD found among those who had other family members with AD or who had died with AD.
This allowed the genetic influences to be a factor in the researchers pathology, which involved thoroughly analyzing frozen tissues from four main sections of the brains from those who had died from Alzheimer’s and were donated for this research.
Within the scientific community, there is some discord with how much AD is genetically predisposed and whether amyloid plaque and the tao protein accumulation actually cause AD. The researcher’s mission was to simply notice the amounts of aluminum toxicity in brain tissue from all four major parts of the brain.
The purpose of finding aluminum in their brain tissues was to point out aluminum as a definite contributing and exacerbating factor for early onset dementia, which hastened its increased pathology. All 12 AD victims had died with at least stage IV Braak levels, most of them were Braak stages V and VI, the highest Braak stage.
Braak staging, named after its developer German professor, Heiko Braak, MD, involves the abundance of neurofibrillary tangles and other pathological manifestations that form in the nerve cells undergoing degeneration in Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease that regionally correlates with the degree of the disease.
One of the 12 AD victim had passed away at 42 years with stage VI Braak, another at 47 with stage V Braak. Only one of the 12 died later than 65 years of age. Using state of the art techniques, the research team discovered high levels of aluminum in all four quadrants of all the brains.
The researchers noted from earlier studies that the brain’s amyloid beta binds with aluminum. They observed this correlation in the brain tissues studied, suggesting amyloid beta (the seeds of amyloid plaque) had a role in the retention and accumulation of aluminum in brain tissue among those genetically predisposed with familial AD.
The study’s conclusion:
Aluminium is neurotoxic and the concentrations of aluminium found in these familial AD brains are unlikely to be benign and indeed are highly likely to have contributed to both the onset and the aggressive nature of any ongoing AD in these individuals. These data lend support to the recent conclusion that brain aluminium will contribute towards all forms of AD under certain conditions.
Aluminum toxicity is more rampant now than ever due to issues covered next. The good news is that there is an simple remedy for Alzheimer’s even after it has progressed to final stages. The high fat ketogenic diet supplemented with coconut oil daily has been empirically shown to reverse dementia and AD. Supplementing with coconut oil alone has proven effective at staving off Alzheimer’s at early stages. (Source)

A Source of Aluminum Toxicity That Affects Most of Us
Aluminum is the most abundant element in the earth’s crust. But there it is bound with other elements to form various benign compounds. It is believed that aluminum unbound from the earth’s even more abundant element silica, if assimilated in any fashion, is very harmful, especially neurologically. It’s even harmful to plants.
The phrase “most of us” in the subtitle was used because some of us don’t get vaccinations or have our kids vaccinated. And almost all vaccines contain aluminum as an adjuvant to heighten an immune reaction. It’s economical. Less viral antigens are needed to produce an antibody response, cutting production costs, to produce the same immune response.
This antibody immune response from vaccination does not guarantee immunity. It’s considered efficacious only from that immediate response with the combination of viral antigen and the adjuvant involved, which now is usually aluminum. That’s as far as testing a vaccine goes. It gets an immediate antibody reaction at least partly, maybe mostly, from its adjuvant and it’s considered “effective.”
So why is aluminum, a known toxin, used as an adjuvant in most vaccines and in even higher amounts with Merck’s HPV vaccine Gardasil (which has a very high rate of paralysis and death from those vaccinated)?
From a very comprehensive Vaccine Impact article covering key points of Dr. Suzanne Humphries, “Aluminum is Toxic to All Life Forms: So Why is it Used in Vaccines?” comes this answer from the World Health Organization (WHO) – with British spellings converted to American English:
Assessment of the safety of aluminum in vaccines is important because replacement of aluminum compounds in currently licensed vaccines would necessitate the introduction of a completely new compound that would have to be investigated before licensing. No obvious candidates to replace aluminum are available, so the withdrawal for safety reasons would severely affect the immunogenicity and protective effect of some currently licensed vaccines and threaten immunization programs worldwide. (Emphasis added – Source)
Considering the text emphasized, one could translate them into “we have to assume aluminum is safe because if we find it isn’t and withdraw it that would be economically disastrous for the vaccine industry.” Aluminum has never been found to be safe. It is recognized as a toxin universally.
An Even More Ubiquitous Source of Aluminum Toxicity
Look up at the sky often and you’ll see what most consider benign jet engine vapor trails from high altitude aircraft. But vapor contrails are condensations of vapor particles in cold temperatures that don’t persist. It’s like breathing vapors from one’s mouth while on a cold day, especially when it’s a bit damp. The breath’s vapor doesn’t stick around or expand.
But if you look up often enough you’ll see some trails that extend from horizon to horizon and persist, even widen and spread out into wispy clouds. Those are considered persistent contrails that many prefer to call chemtrails, geoengineering aerosol spraying of chemicals, perhaps for military and weather control purposes.
The scientists behind this endeavor and its pilots deny chemtrails even exist. They publicly speak of implementing geoengineering to protect against global warming as though it isn’t actually going on now.
Chemtrail deniers explain that persistent contrails of condensation from jet engines when the temperature, altitude, and other conditions are just right do occasionally occur.
But the extreme persistence and behavior of stretching from horizon to horizon and expanding their width, and the spraying aircraft flight patterns that are not on normal commercial flight patterns but often go back and forth and crisscross each other contradicts that concept. (Source)
They’re the elephants in the sky that go unnoticed by almost everyone on the ground who simply shrug and say “those are just jet trails” even as the jet trails become artificial clouds.
But those trails and clouds don’t stay up completely forever. The nanosize particulates of metal in them, strontium, barium, and aluminum drift to the ground. The few who don’t agree with the many who deny what they see have collected these metals in water and air traps, even found them in rainwater and snow on mountains after aerial spraying events.
Retired neurosurgeon and professor, now author and lecturer on neurotoxins and neurological disorders, Dr. Russell Blaylock offered the following in one of his video lectures:
The internet is littered with stories of “chemtrails” and geoengineering to combat “global warming” and until recently I took these stories with a grain of salt. One of the main reasons for my skepticism was that I rarely saw what they were describing in the skies.
But over the past several years [prior to 2012] I have noticed a great number of these trails and I have to admit they are not like the contrails I grew up seeing in the skies. They are extensive, quite broad, are laid in a definite pattern and slowly evolve into artificial clouds. Of particular concern is that there are now so many dozens every day that are littering the skies.
My major concern is that there is evidence that they are spraying tons of nanosized aluminum compounds. It has been demonstrated in the scientific and medical literature that nanosized particles are infinitely more reactive and induce intense inflammation in a number of tissues.
Studies have shown that these particles pass along the olfactory neural tracts, which connect directly to the area of the brain that is not only most affected by Alzheimer’s disease, but also the earliest affected in the course of the disease. It also has the highest level of brain aluminum in Alzheimer’s cases.
The good news is there are some detox potentials for aluminum. Silica binds with aluminum naturally. It’s what keeps aluminum safe from harm in the earth’s crust. Some recommend consuming lots of cucumbers high in silica, drinking real mineral waters that show high levels of silica content on their labels, and/or using an extract or tincture of the herb horsetail, which is very high in silica also.
