For over 40 years, the study of Alzheimer’s has included the controversial correlation it has with aluminum. In some cases, there is an increased level of aluminum present in the brains of those suffering from Alzheimer’s. This relationship has sparked interest in the medical community for years… and for good reason!
Food and products that often times contain aluminum:
– Infant formula
– Pharmaceutical drugs
– Processed foods
– Tap water
– Aluminum Foil
The reason aluminum can effect a person’s brain is because over the years, it can slowly build up in the brain and cause serious neural damage. Your body is capable of expelling most toxins, but because we are so constantly exposed to aluminum, we are retaining ot faster than our bodies can expel it.
Many medical professionals prefer to brush of the effects of aluminum or chose to ignore the blatant correlation between this metal and Alzheimer’s. Generally speaking, aluminum will not affect someone in the short term, so it is extremely easy to ignore the potential damage.
It is only when you have years of exposure that the effects will begin to show, beginning with memory loss, dementia, and then in some cases, Alzheimer’s.
More than 5 million Americans are suffering from Alzheimer’s and every 67 seconds another person is diagnosed! If there is even a small possibility that our exposure to aluminum could be contributing to this disease, then our medical practitioners need to take this seriously!
People diagnosed with Alzheimer’s have been found to have a higher aluminum build up in their brain than those without the disease… this can’t just be a coincidence!
Women should be particularly concerned since 2/3 of the Alzheimer population are in fact women, and every 1 in 6 female above 60 years old will suffer from some sort of dementia.
Nobody knows exactly what causes memory loss and Alzheimer’s but there are certainly foods that can help protect your body from this fatal and heartbreaking disease.
The foods below can help strengthen and build your memory:
– Fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna)
– Kale, broccoli, spinach
Make sure you buy all the above foods organic and local if possible! Buying organic and local will decrease the chance of there being any pesticides or toxins in your food!
These have different active ingredients but they all contain at least one of the following ingredients that have been shown to contribute toward a healthy memory;
– Omega 3 fatty acids
– Vitamin E
Try and protect yourself against Alzheimer’s as much as you possibly can by eating right, and exercising your mind and body. We have to look out for ourselves becomes it seems large corporations and the FDA are not!
