Aluminum in Vaccines Now Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease

An average American adult consumes about 7 to 9 mg of aluminum each day in their food and lesser amounts from drinking water and air, this according to the CDC. About 1 percent of this aluminum will be absorbed by your body, with the remainder flushed out through your digestive tract, assuming of course that your digestive system is working properly.

If you think aluminum isn’t that much of a problem, consider these insidious ways that we come into contact with it:

  • Vaccines:  Influenza, hepatitis A and B, pneumococcal (pneumonia), Gardasil, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and many others all contain aluminum
  • Foods: Baking powder, baby formula, coffee creamer, baked foods, salt, and self-rising flour
  • Containers: Cans, juice pouches, soda cans, water bottles, foil for covering food
  • Drugs: Anti-diarrhea, analgesics (pain relievers) antacids
  • Cosmetics/Beauty: Deodorants, antiperspirants, body lotions, shampoo, sunscreens

Of course, cooking foods in aluminum simply makes the matter worse. Even cooking with aluminum foil increases the concentration of aluminum in foods. Aluminum is as toxic to your brain and central nervous system as cigarette smoke is to your lungs.

Once aluminum enters your body, it moves around quite easily via your blood stream, taking a piggyback ride through the body’s iron transportation system. It can cross barriers that are intended to keep out other toxins. This means aluminum easily passes through the blood-brain barrier.

Aluminum in vaccines is quite possibly even more of a threat to our health than the mercury they contain. The number of vaccines that contain aluminum and are given to our children has more than quadrupled over the past 30 years. In 1970, children received only 4 aluminum containing vaccines during their first 18 months. Now, children receive about 17 vaccines. This problem becomes obvious when you realize that, in one school study, about 90 percent of the children developed ADHD, and toxicity profiles show that all the children had massive amounts of aluminum in their bodies.

With Alzheimer’s rates going through the roof, it’s fairly obvious that we are paying a heavy price for our overexposure to aluminum. Once this metal is inside your system, your body has a difficult time expelling it.

This metal has no biological purpose in the body. None. This means it does not serve any purpose, so the less aluminum you can take in, the better off you will be.
