are losing their minds to Alzheimer’s disease. It’s an epidemic and it’s not
typical of what’s going on in the rest of the world.
World Health Organization estimates that there are 18 million people with
Alzheimer’s. Over 4 and1/2 million Americans have the disease. We account for
25% of all Alzheimer’s cases, even though we represent only 4.6% of the world’s
population. Europe is experiencing half our rate of disease. For Americans over
85 years of age, 50% are thought to have Alzheimer’s. The question is, “Why”?
was first discovered in 1906, about 20 years after aluminum cookware was
introduced. It is not a part of normal aging says the National Institutes of
Health (NIH). The NIH contends that the cause of Alzheimer’s is “not known”.
They say, “Prior theories regarding the accumulation of aluminum, lead,
mercury, and other substances in the brain have been disproved”.
believe that crap! Federal agencies have a talent for not finding environmental
causes for many diseases. They live by the motto, “Do not seek and thou shall
not find”. Kind of like their outlook about mad cow disease. Genetic triggers
and lifestyle choices get the research dollars for pretty obvious reasons –
their findings don’t hurt polluters’ profits.
scientists and government researchers have not taken aluminum off the
scientific table as a causal factor in Alzheimer’s. Research scientists, with
the International Aluminum Network report, “Aluminum has been implicated as a
potential factor or co-factor in the Alzheimer syndrome as well as in the
etiopathogenesis of other neurodegenerative diseases, Parkinsonism, Amyotrophic
Lateral Sclerosis and other diseases”. Whaaat?
it was thought that aluminum might be the sole cause of Alzheimer’s. Persons
with Alzheimer’s have been found to experience increased absorption of aluminum
in the brain, as well as exhibit densities of senile plaques and
neurofibrillary tangles. However, there are no reports that suggest plaques and
tangles do not always signify Alzheimer’s, and vice versa.
clouding the issue are patients on kidney dialysis machines. They are unable to
excrete aluminum, plus they may also be treated with medicines that include
reports say that dialysis patients don’t develop Alzheimer’s, although they can
develop dialysis dementia if the equipment doesn’t filter out aluminum. And
therein lies the problem.
process of kidney dialysis requires very purified, non-fluoridated water. Do
you get the feeling that fluoride is aluminum’s partner-in-crime?
1998, Julie Varner and two colleagues published research on the effects of
aluminum-fluoride and sodium-fluoride on the nervous system of rats. They
concluded, “Chronic administration of aluminum-fluoride and sodium-fluoride in
the drinking water of rats resulted in distinct morphological alterations of
the brain, including effects on neurons and cerebrovasculature”. In laymen’s
terms, it looked like fluoride and aluminum could cause Alzheimer’s. Although
the study was not definitive, they may have been on to something.
along with fluoride, is in our drinking water, foods, beverages, processed
foods, and consumer products. Europe, which is largely unfluoridated, (the U.S.
is over 60% fluoridated) has half our Alzheimer’s rate. It doesn’t take rocket
science to see a definite correlation.
are other intriguing issues as well. Why do people with thyroid disease have an
increased risk for Alzheimer’s?
U.S., thyroid disease has reached even greater epidemic levels than
Alzheimer’s, with as many as 20 million American victims. Besides problems with
iodine intake, a common cause of thyroid disease is radiation.
are also unbelievable similarities between Alzheimer’s and Creutzfeldt-Jacob
Disease (CJD) aka mad cow disease. Mad cow disease is linked to feeding animal
parts back to vegetarian animals through livestock feed and fertilizer.
what do radiation, livestock feed, fluoride, and fertilizer have in common
which may have led to the emergence of the Alzheimer’s epidemic? The phosphate
use was not a common practice in the U.S. until after 1870, when phosphate and
lime were applied to crops like cotton and tobacco. By the end of World War II,
an era of intensive agriculture began.
phosphate produced in Florida, about 95% is used in agriculture (90% goes into
fertilizer and 5% into livestock feed supplements). The remaining 5% is used in
a variety of foods and beverages, plus personal care, consumer and industrial
products. So says the Cargill Fertilizer Company, the largest producer of
phosphate fertilizer in the country and the largest source for the fluoride
products which are added to the water supplies in the country.
Glasser writes in the Earth Island Journal, “Radium wastes from filtration
systems at phosphate fertilizer facilities are among the most radioactive types
of naturally occurring radioactive material wastes. Uranium and all of its
decay-rate products are found in phosphate rock, fluorosilicic acid (fluoride)
and phosphate fertilizer”.
Florida Institute of Phosphate research says, “Removal of uranium as a product
is no longer profitable and all of the extraction facilities have been dismantled.
The uranium that remains in the phosphoric acid and fertilizer products is at a
low enough level that it is safe for use”.
This is not very reassuring as chronic exposure to low levels of contamination
can be as dangerous, or more so, than chronic high levels of exposure or acute
particular interest is calcium silicate, another by-product of the phosphate
fertilizer industry used as an anti-caking agent in iodized table salt. Is
calcium silicate also radioactive? Would that have a significant impact on the
thyroid? Given the relationship between Alzheimer’s and thyroid disease,
Alzheimer’s may be destined to increase exponentially.
phosphate fertilizer industry seems to be the common thread in Alzheimer’s and
maybe also in thyroid and mad cow type diseases. Aluminum by itself may not
cause Alzheimer’s, but in combination with the radioactive products of the
phosphate fertilizer industry, it could be wreaking havoc on our health.
this: flu vaccines, like Tamiflu, contain enormous amounts of mercury and
aluminum. Two substances that do wonders for the brain. Guess who the “powers”
scare into taking flu vaccines? The elderly. Guess which section of the
population is succumbing to Alzheimer’s type symptoms? The elderly. Draw your
the cause, we deserve real answers to the Alzheimer’s epidemic, not the red
herrings of research on genetics and lifestyle. The number of American victims
is totally out of proportion to the incidence of Alzheimer’s worldwide.
the organic sulfur crystals are proven to reverse Alzheimer’s. Why doesn’t
anyone tell us that?
a funny story about Alzheimer’s reversal. A wife was in a nursing home with the
big A. Her husband would visit her every day and bring her a liter bottle
filled with sulfur crystal lime punch. He would always bring back the empty but
leave her a full one. This went on for about 9 months. He walks in one day and
his wife says, “Hi Honey, let’s get the hell out of here”. They are now living
in Costa Rica and she has no Alzheimer’s.
