Aluminium is an abundant metal and widely used in many of our products. Aluminium will accumulate in the kidneys, liver and other parts of our body.
Calcium is very important for women, especially when our hormones start to decrease and the menopause start to affect us. Aluminium competes with calcium for absorption and calcium is a very important mineral for our bones and it also interferes with other vital minerals such as phosphorous, zinc and selenium.
Metal toxicity can interfere with fertility and other health issues, such as hyperactivity, learning disorders in children and is linked to many other health issues. Pregnant women and those who are breast feeding their infants should try to avoid all sources.
We have aluminium in many products we use, such as our pots and pans, antacids that have aluminium hydroxide; these can cause disruptions to the digestive system. Glass would be a far better option to use. Other products that include aluminium are toothpastes, deodorants, aluminium coil (contraceptive), foil, juice boxes, kitchen utensils, beverage cans.
The following additives contain aluminium compounds: E173, E520, E521, E523 E541, E545, E554, E555 E556, and E559.
Iron is a good mineral to take in support of reducing the aluminium effects in the body. Those on low aluminium intake have been shown to suffer less from irritability, headaches and memory improvement likewise with concentration levels.
I have just recently read an article about a leakage happening at a water treatment works. Twenty-four years ago, one of the UK’s most notorious pollution disasters occurred. At a water treatment works on the edge of Bodmin Moor, 20 tons of aluminum sulphate leaked into the water supply serving the nearby town of Camelford. He believes Mrs. Cross death was affected by the consumption of this mineral.
But Prof Exley, a world-renowned expert on aluminum, hopes the inquest will do more than finally establish the truth about why Mrs. Cross died (he is convinced that aluminum from the drinking water played a role in her mental deterioration).
