The dispute

What is the real cause of Alzheimer's? So far it's obvious that it's aluminum.

However, the aluminum link, as well as the aluminum cause and effect are heavily disputed by the aluminum industry, and by the scientists who receive grants from the aluminum industry.

They assert (but unable to prove) that
  • Bioavailable aluminum cannot enter the brain in sufficient amounts to cause damage;
  • Aluminum is efficiently excreted from the body; and
  • Aluminum accumulation in neurons is a consequence rather than a cause of neuronal loss.
However, scientific research reveals that:
  • Even very small amounts of aluminum will produce neurotoxicity;

  • This criterion is satisfied through dietary aluminum intake;

  • Aluminum uses different transport mechanisms that actively traverse brain barriers;

  • Incremental acquisition of small amounts of aluminum over a lifetime favors its selective accumulation in brain tissues;

  • Since 1911 experimental evidence has repeatedly demonstrated that chronic aluminum intoxication reproduces neuropathological hallmarks of Alzheimer's;

  • Misconceptions about the bioavailability of aluminum may have mislead scientists regarding the significance of aluminum in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's;

  • The hypothesis that aluminum significantly contributes to Alzheimer's is built upon very solid experimental evidence that shouldn't be dismissed. Immediate steps should be taken to lessen human exposure to aluminum, which is the single most aggravating and avoidable factor related to Alzheimer's. (1) ...More >>
