The Link Between Aluminum and Alzheimer’s Disease

Research has shown that aluminum is in fact a neurotoxin. With chronic exposure, it is increasingly demonstrated to be a contributing factor when it comes to the onset of neurological diseases like dementia, autism, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and many other illnesses. However, establishing a preponderance of scientific evidence is a continual challenge due to persistent denial and disregard of the science by those opposing aluminum safety research. While the issue of adverse reactions caused by aluminum exposure is not new, a recent study from Keele University in the United Kingdom provides “unequivocal data” that chronic exposure to aluminum can lead to Aluminum induced Alzheimer’s disease with fatal implications.

The case involves a 66-year old man who suffered from an aggressive early development of Alzheimer’s disease after he spent eight years working with constant exposure to aluminum dust. The man later died due to the onset of Alzheimer’s and failing health. Researchers studying his case made a discovery concerning the significant aluminum content found in his brain and the resulting condition of his brain tissue. Strong evidence suggests that the olfactory system played a prominent role in aluminum accumulation in the lungs and brain.

There may be multiple contributing factors to Alzheimer’s disease, and all are yet to be specifically determined, but some scientists believe environmental factors play a significant causal role. If inhalation of dust from an occupational exposure is considered an environmental exposure, this case would provide an example of this theory. This case study follows other cases which have already been published where aluminum exposure through ingestion and injection demonstrated cause and effect. These cases include accidental aluminum contamination of water supplies and dialysis fluids. Research methods used in this case study enabled a careful analysis of the location, distribution and quantity of aluminum throughout this man’s brain. Combined with the knowledge about his health history, route and timing of exposure, this study provides the virtual certainty researchers have been seeking. As many sources of aluminum are insidious and occur over decades rather than years, establishing the cause and effect relationship has been elusive.

Additionally, researchers from around the world have been drawing correlations between aluminum and other chronic illnesses. A charitable organization that has identified this area of research as a priority is Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute. CMSRI funded researchers have studied aluminum as it pertains to the adverse health of children and adults who have received vaccines containing aluminum adjuvants. Some of these adverse reactions include secondary amenorrhea, primary ovarian failure, a variety of autoimmune diseases and even death.

Despite numerous scientific reports, studies and cases, authorities are just beginning to initiate serious inquiries into the safety of aluminum adjuvants. The inevitable conclusion that is hoped for is that more stringent safety requirements will be adopted and alternative adjuvants for use in vaccines will result. As parental awareness of the effects of aluminum toxicity on the developing brain and the immune system increases with each study that emerges, the potential for informed decision-making when it comes to vaccines may help play a role in improving safety. The more we know about aluminum, the better we can defend ourselves from hidden exposures and prevent chronic illnesses such as Alzheimer’s.

New Version of Gardasil Doubles Aluminum Content

Recently, the FDA approved a ‘new and improved’ version of Gardasil dubbed Gardasil 9 in which the amount of aluminum is more than double than in the original formulation. With that being said, Gardasil 9 also was approved without being consulted by the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) that ‘is responsible for reviewing and evaluating data concerning the safety, effectiveness, and appropriate use of vaccines and related biological products.’

During the approval, a signed FDA letter by Marion Gruber who is the Director of Office of Vaccines Research and Review, stated that Gardasil 9 ‘did not raise concerns or controversial issues,’ thus was approved without examination by VRBPAC. The controversial issue at hand is that this new formula was approved with more than double the amount of aluminum content while there are numerous reports and data from adverse health effects related to the original formula.

With that being said, David A. Geier and Mark R. Geier, a father-son research team, published a study just two days before Gardasil 9 was approved, that found thousands instances of adverse events documented that was related to the original formula. In their study, they examined data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) with dates ranging from January 2006 to December 2012. Upon reviewing the database, they were pinpointing autoimmune adverse events (SAAEs) in women between the ages of 18 to 39 years old.

The two researchers analyzed the data and found 22,011 adverse events in the VAERS database from women who were administered Gardasil. These women suffered the following SAAEs:

  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus,
  • Arthritis
  • Vasculitis
  • Alopecia
  • Central Nervous System Conditions

They suggest that there is significant evidence of a causal relationship between Gardasil and the resulting SAAEs. Not only does their study document many adverse events following the administration of Gardasil, but other CMSRI funded researchers have published reports of similar findings in which women experience adverse reactions after receiving doses of Gardasil and some reactions have resulted in deaths. This new study highlights the strong links between this vaccine and certain autoimmune adverse reactions which previously have been linked to neurotoxic aluminum used in Gardasil. Doubling the amount of aluminum without conducting further research on how it may affect the already significant rate of adverse reactions is fraud and negligence on behalf of health agencies responsible for ensuring the safety of the vaccines recommended, and in some cases, mandated for use.

Other studies have dismissed the increase in reported autoimmune reactions after Gardasil, claiming their appearance after receiving the vaccine is only a “coincidence.” In that case, there has been an epidemic increase of “coincidence” since Gardasil has been approved, especially “severe coincidences.”

As Gardasil 9 is released and marketed as the “new and improved” version of Gardasil, health-conscious consumers should take note of the additional toxic ingredients in the formula, which includes more than double the amount of aluminum adjuvant that has already demonstrated harm at lower levels, as well as other potentially harmful ingredients.

Based on the results of this and several other independent studies, Gardasil has demonstrated risks that exceed the benefits, and this should make parents think twice about the new vaccine which contains more than double the amount of aluminum.
