Health risks of aluminum have been known for over a 100
years, yet we coincidentally find aluminum added and/or concentrated in so many
things we consume, wear, and use daily. This includes: commercially made bread products,
American cheese, tap water, filtered water (activated alumina, reverse osmosis),
medicine (pill buffers, nasal sprays, vaccines), clothing, personal and baby
care products such as shampoos, deodorants, toothpaste, makeup and
unfortunately plenty more too.
Do not blindly trust in just any filtered water,
for reverse osmosis filtration can concentrate the dangerous heavy metals
mercury and aluminum! Beware of activated alumina filters, and Aluminum
Fluoride as well.
Alum powder is used
as the acidic component of every major commercial baking powder, including a well-known major brand that is known traditionally by some for not using alum in its' residential size packages. Alum was used by
bakers in England during the 1800's to make bread whiter. In 1875, the Sale of
Food and Drugs Act prevented this and other alterations.
the April 1995 issue of the international science journal, Neurotoxicology,
reported that the widespread use of aluminum salts to purify water may lead to
brain damage and may account for the large scale loss of memory experienced by
people suffering from Alzheimer's disease! The Australia Institute of Bio-medical Research, based in Sydney, reported that experiments with rats
showed that tiny amounts of aluminum consumed in water found its way to their
brains and accumulated there. It has been known for twenty years that if
aluminum accumulated in the brain over a period of time, it could kill off
neurons and cause memory loss. Institute researcher Judie Walton noted the
worldwide massive increase in Alzheimer's disease over the past 70 years. She
pointed out, "We are drinking it and eating it throughout our lifetimes, so by
the time we are quite old we have had a lot of exposure to aluminum."
research on rats found measurable amounts of aluminum in their brains after
just one glass of aluminum treated water. Walton observed, "We really should
look seriously at revisiting this possibility that aluminum addition to foods
and drinking water is a health hazard. Using aluminum to purify water may be
even more dangerous than the use of fluoride and chlorine in our water. It is
believed that the problem is worsened by the action of fluoride in facilitating
the absorption of aluminum."
Vaccine Ingredients... Ex: aborted fetal tissue, mercury, aluminum,
formaldehyde, antifreeze, and more (http://www.informedchoice.info/cocktail.html).
intriguing and disturbing fact about fluoridation is that over 90% of the agent
used in US fluoridation schemes is not pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride, on
which practically all toxicological testing has been performed, but industrial
grade hexafluorosilicic acid obtained from the air pollution scrubbing systems
of the superphosphate industry (e.g. Cargill Fertilizer). By law, this waste
cannot be dumped into the sea but the EPA allows it to be diluted down with our
public drinking water. The union representing scientists at the EPA
headquarters in Washington, DC has gone on record as opposing this bizarre form
of hazardous waste management (See www.fluoridealert.org).
