HEALTHY LIVING . GUIDE



The 66 year-old Caucasian man developed an aggressive form of early onset Alzheimer's disease after eight years of occupational exposure to aluminium dust, which scientists conclude "suggests a prominent role for the olfactory system and lungs in the accumulation of aluminium in the brain." This is not the first time high aluminium levels have been found in the tissues of someone who died from Alzheimer's disease. For example, in 2004, high aluminium levels were found in the tissues of a British woman who died of early-onset Alzheimer's. This was 16 years after an industrial accident dumped 20 metric tons of aluminium sulphate into her local drinking water. And there are many studies showing elevated aluminium levels in living individuals displaying a wide range of neurological symptoms.
