NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Higher levels of aluminum in drinking water appear to increase people’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, whereas higher levels of silica appear to decrease the risk, according to French investigators.

“Alzheimer’s disease is a multifactorial disease, and aluminum concentrations in drinking water may have an effect on cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease,” Dr. Virginie Rondeau told Reuters Health.

The results of some studies suggest that silica reduces the oral absorption of aluminum or increases the excretion of this metal.

Rondeau, at the Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale in Bordeaux, and her colleagues examined associations between exposure to aluminum or silica from drinking water and the risk of cognitive decline, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease among elderly subjects followed for 15 years.

Daily aluminum intake of at least 0.1 milligram was associated with greater cognitive decline during the course of the study, the team reports in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Comment from Leslie

Add in aluminum in vaccines, deoderants, aluminum foil, cookware Рit all causes neurological damage. Big Pharma can negate vaccines causing brain damage because of all the other environmental toxins which prevent a precise pin point to the damage.  As Dr. Moulden states Рit is cumulative, additive and sumative Рand how each person reacts and when depends on their existing level of toxicity. Tricky Dick Рas we used to say.
