Aluminum: Found in Brains of Alzheimer, MS and Autistic subjects
Aluminum in the Brain in Multiple Sclerosis: Regulatory and Funding Agencies Silent, Complicit
In a new case series study, brain tissue from 14 donors with a diagnosis of MS was studied in a case series by Mold et al (2018) using transversely heated graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry. The study found high aluminum content (>10 ug/g dry weight) in all areas of the brain studied, with some areas exceeding 50 ug/g.
Elevated brain aluminium, early onset Alzheimer’s disease in an individual occupationally exposed to aluminium
While aluminum is a known neurotoxin and occupational exposure to aluminum has been implicated in neurological disease, including Alzheimer’s disease, this finding is believed to be the first record of a direct link between Alzheimer’s disease and elevated brain aluminum following occupational exposure to the metal.Feb 12, 2014
