Aluminum and Alzheimer's Disease May 9, 2013


After my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in 1992, I began my research into what was known then about this disease and I try to keep up with the increased studies and information out there today not only because my husband now has the disease but also to protect my own brain health as I age. One of the purposes of this blog is to share with you the reports on the research I find useful.

One of these is the qestion about the relationship between aluminum-foil,cooking pans and utensils and anti-perspirant to the development of Alzheimer's disease.In a spate of research projects that date back to 1965, excess aluminum has been found in autopsies of brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. There has been controversy about the meaning of that finding, and no conclusions or recommendatons have been drawn from it. The follow-up studies have been mixed and since aluminum is the third most frequent element in nature, it is difficult to study-- the results can be very easily contaminated.

Now the experts are saying there are more important studies to undertake to find the cure or cause of Alzheimer's disease and aluminum has fallen out of favor as a study project. But just as I watch my salt intake and my mercury intake, I can watch my aluminum intake and I have switched to deodorant which doesn't include aluminum, I use only stainless steel pots and I have greatly reduced my use of aluminum foil. I can do these things easily. Why not err on the side of caution?

The researchers, however, want us to concentrate on  other factors iwhich include things such as diabetes and heart disease — that studies have shown are strongly associated with Alzheimer’s disease; Other factors we can control are our level of intellectual stimulation and educational attainment and social engagement. These factors may one day help researchers treat and even prevent the disease, 

My mother had neither diabetes nor heart disease and she contracted Alzheimer's disease anyway. My husband was diagnosed with both diabetes and heart disease although he carefully watched his sugar intake, has a high level of intellectual achievement and stimulation and a network of friends. None of these is predictive. We can only live as healthily as we can and live by doing everything in moderation.

  1. Alzheimer's disease has a tremendous impact at any age. With new treatment its more important than ever that you recognize early symptoms and get help as soon as possible.

  2. Rose Weel is my name, I live in USA. I want to say to the whole world how my husband was cured of his Alzheimer’s disease. Brothers and Sisters, my husband is 78 years old. He is a retired US Army. He fought so many wars, and had encounter with so many dangerous diseases. Before he embarked on his last peace mission to Iraq they were administered injections that will enable them carry out their duties effectively. So they went to the battle field where he lost so many of his colleagues and also he was shot on his throat but bullets don’t have much effect on him. So after the battle he survived it and returned back to USA off course he was rewarded heavily by the government, and that lead to his retirement. But after his retirement, he began to behave funny like forgetting all he did in the past, and sometimes don’t recognize me his wife quickly. I took him to Military hospital, and the doctor said some king of liquid in his body is causing him so many reactions, and this is affecting his brain to cut the long story short, after much diagnoses using EEG, and also the test of PROTEIN 14-3-3 all pointing out to the fact that his brain has malfunction. So he was giving medicines but his condition was still becoming worse even while taking the medicines administered. So we went back to the military hospital, and he was finally diagnosed of Alzheimer’s disease and this the doctor said have no cure. So his conditions began to get worst by the day. I cried out for help, but the government only gave us financial support. I all the time surf the web looking for possible cure until I ran into a blog where a man named James Watt gave testimony on how his cousin was cured of CJD by an herbal doctor called Doctor Uwadia Amenifo. In his testimony he imputed the contact detail of the herbalist. So I quickly copied out the contact details of Uwadia, and I contacted him immediately and explained to him what my husband is going through. He encouraged me and promised me that surly he will cure my husband, so after all necessary arrangement was made; he prepared the herbal medicine, and shipped it to me in USA, so I followed his instructions, and gave the medicine to my husband. Behold just like a magic in my eyes my husband was responding positively to the medicine and in just less than 3 weeks I started giving him the medicine, he was very okay, and in less than 7 weeks my husband was totally curd, and as I speak to you now my husband is totally cured, and he is now very okay, and in good health. So please all here shall help me say a big thanks to Doctor Uwadia Amenifo for helping me cure my husband of his Alzheimer’s disease. Please if you need Doctor Uwadia’s contact details, here is it. Email (doctoruwadiaamenifo@gmail.com) and his number is (+2349052015874). God bless all.
