Aluminum can change genetic expression of proteins in the brain
In the 15-year French study, researchers found out that dietary aluminum from water sources could be a risk factor for developing dementia. How much greater could direct unfiltered aluminum affect a small, developing body and brain? The sad answers are all around us. Not only have negative neuro-behavioral outcomes from aluminum exposure been measured in animal studies (restlessness, muscle tremors, loss of response to stimuli), but they are also seen in humans today, with increasing numbers of children falling into the autism spectrum. The presence of aluminum in central nervous system tissue causes altered expression of certain genes in the brain. Aluminum is changing our genetics, destroying who we are with every dose.
.1mg Al per day in drinking water increased dementia risk in seniors
A 2009 report from the American Journal of Epidemiology details this 15-year study from France. The study followed the lives of 1,925 elderly patients between the years 1988 and 2003. All of the elderly men and women were selected from 91 different municipalities with different water sources in southern France. Their aluminum intake levels were studied, from water and other sources, as the researchers investigated the metal's role in bringing about dementia throughout the 15-year period. During that time, the researchers also investigated the impact of silica in reducing participants' risk of dementia.
Of the nearly 2,000 elderly studied, none showed any signs of dementia beginning in 1988. Aluminum from drinking water was correlated with increased dementia in the 15-year study.
The researchers ruled out environmental aluminum intake factors during the study and focused solely on aluminum intake from water. The participants' daily consumption of tap and bottled water was recorded. Reliable water assessment data was analyzed. In the study, aluminum consumption greater than or equal to 0.1 mg per day from drinking water was correlated with declining cognitive ability. Over the years, the accumulation of aluminum inflicted negative mental effects, welcoming dementia in what was once a mentally healthy group of elderly adults. Using the scientific Cox model, the researchers found that highest exposure to aluminum may be a risk factor for full-blown dementia.
Direct, compounding aluminum injection on small, developing bodies retarding the next generation
If parents follow the CDC's recommended vaccine schedule that most doctors push, then in year one of a child's life the infant will be injected with more than 4,000 micrograms of aluminum from a myriad of vaccines that claim prevention. How does this overload of aluminum retard a child's cognitive development, especially since an infant's body is much smaller, more vulnerable, and in crucial stages of development? When aluminum is consumed over time (as in water) only a small amount is absorbed into cells (if the kidneys are properly filtering it from the body). With injected aluminum, the risks are greater because it is injected directly into muscle, where it may be absorbed at nearly 100% efficiency over time and can accumulate in organs, including the brain.
Aluminum from vaccines a much greater threat to cognitive development and ability
If .1 mg of daily consumption of aluminum was equated to the onset of dementia, and if much of that is being filtered out by seniors' kidneys, then how devastating could aluminum damage be, if infants are injected with roughly 4000+ mg of aluminum in their first year of life (if they are forced to endure the CDC's vaccine schedule). In trying to prevent disease with runaway vaccine ideology, health authorities are inadvertently poisoning small developing bodies with inane amounts of aluminum while looking past nutrition's role for providing immunity for all disease. Since the US is the most vaccinated country in the world, its people are the most poisoned by direct aluminum exposure in muscle tissue. The neurological damage is evident.
Researchers find a solution to aluminum toxicity
The French researchers did find a helpful solution to counter aluminum toxicity and thus thwart dementia. They found that the mineral silica could help decrease the risk of aluminum-induced dementia in elderly patients.
Hoping to the help the participants, the researchers looked further and assessed silica intake for its ability to reduce dementia. What they discovered was that when participants increased their silica intake by 10 mg/day, incidences of dementia subsided. The change was drastic.
This discovery coincides with the expert analysis of Dr. Chris Exley, PhD. At a January 2011 vaccine safety conference in Jamaica, Dr. Exley talked about ways to reduce the toxic effects of aluminum in the body. He talked about the importance of silica and mentioned two brands of silica-enhanced water, Volvic and Spritzer. After conducting several urine tests, Exley and his team of researchers proved that high-silica mineral waters help remove aluminum from the body. In a presentation involving victims of Gardasil vaccine's adverse reactions, Exley showed how silica improved the negative outcomes caused by aluminum-laced vaccines. Based off 20 years of study, Dr. Exley recommends drinking a liter of silica-rich water daily to reduce the burden of accumulated aluminum in the body. There are also many great whole food supplements on the market today that contain silica.
Sources of silica
Silica mineral water and silica supplements aren't the only places to find this important mineral. According to the 1993 book Silica: The Forgotten Nutrient, by Klaus Kaufmann, silica can be found primarily in the following foods: (Silica content is measured in mg.)
- Oats: 595
- Millet: 500
- Barley: 233
- Potatoes: 200
- Whole wheat grain: 158
- Jerusalem artichoke: 36
- Red beets: 21
- Corn: 19
- Asparagus: 18
- Rye: 17
Horsetail - top source for silica
One of the sources of silica not mentioned above is horsetail. Respected as a strong diuretic and astringent herb, horsetail is a fern-like, nonflowering weed that is loaded with silica. The tall, hollow stems resemble asparagus and often grow in bunches. When the plant begins to dry, silica crystals form in the stems and appear to look like feathery tails. This herb can be purchased as a dry powder and can be used raw to make tinctures. The silica content of horsetail is unmatched and is famous for helping people grow healthy hair, nails and skin.
With its high silica content, horsetail may be good for removing aluminum from the body, warding off dementia, and helping children and young adults detoxify from the insane amount of aluminum they were exposed to as a child.
