Aluminum Is Poisoning Our Brains And Causing Alzheimer’s, Professor Warns

Fact checked
Aluminum is causing Alzheimer’s, leading professor claims

Aluminum found in medicines, cosmetics, and food are poisoning our brains and causing widespread Alzheimer’s disease, a British professor has warned. 

The toxic metal builds up in the brain, eventually causing Aluminum contamination – a factor that likely causes Alzheimer’s disease, Professor Christopher Exley, of Keele University claims. reports:  The metal compound is found in most processed foods, tea, wine, fizzy drinks, cosmetics and drugs like aspirin.

Professor Exley said the very fact that studies have revealed aluminium deposits in the brain should serve as a warning that we are being contaminated.

He said: ‘The presence of aluminium in the human brain should be a red flag alerting us all to the potential dangers of the aluminium age.

‘We are all accumulating a known neurotoxin in our brain from our conception to our death.

‘Why do we treat this inevitability with almost total complacency?’

His latest report builds on his previous work, in which he suggested there was a link between the aluminium found in deodorants and cancer.

Aluminium is the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust, and is naturally found in food because plants absorb it from water and the soil.

While 50 years ago we may have ingested small amounts of aluminium from vegetables and the pots they were cooked in, today it is added to almost everything we consume.

Aluminium sulphate is added to water to make it more clear, and it is added to cakes and biscuits as a raising agent.

It is also found in most processed foods, food colouring, tea, cocoa, malt drinks, wines and fizzy drinks.

Cosmetics, talcs, toothpaste, suncream and antiperspirants contain aluminium, as well as drugs such as aspirin, antacids and vaccines.

The body excretes aluminium, but if more is ingested than the body can excrete, it is deposited in the bone, brain, liver, heart, spleen, and muscle.

Professor Exley argues the human brain is both ‘a target and a sink for aluminium’ when it enters the body.

At some point, the aluminium accumulated in the brain will reach a ‘toxic threshold’ and the affected area of the brain will not be able to cope, he said.

If the same part of the brain is suffering from other conditions, then reacting to the presence of aluminium will make the condition worse, he added.

He concluded that aluminium could fuel early onset on Alzheimer’s, a condition affecting memory, and make the disease worse.

He said: ‘In this way aluminium may cause a particular condition to be more aggressive and perhaps to have an earlier onset – such occurrences have already been shown in Alzheimer’s disease related to environmental and occupational exposure to aluminium.’

Reducing exposure to aluminium and removing it from the body could prevent Alzheimer’s disease, and further tests should be carried out to test the link, he concluded.

His report was published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology.


  1. Even though Alzheimer’s is actually dangerously low levels of fat/protein (myelin) in the brain, due to removing saturated fat from the diet…

    Oh wait, that’s just a conspiracy theory, I’m sorry.

  2. Heavy metals are depleting the body of valuable nutrients like magnesium. Magnesium oil goes a long way in neutralizing this chemical reaction by detoxifying heavy metals like mercury, aluminum, barium, etc. You will find that you will sleep better with regular use particularly before bed. It both relaxes the body and increases energy. Relaxation of the body is actually an active process requiring energy. Low energy means no sleep. It liquifies the blood improving circulation as well.

  3. This is a very old hypothesis, dating back to at least the 1980s (when I first read it). The thing about aluminum (an element, not a “compound,” as this ignorant professor calls it) is that it is quite inert in biological systems: it is as difficult to remove it from the brain as it is to get it across the food/blood barrier in the intestines. We do not “excrete” most of the aluminum we eat after absorbing it; we excrete it in or feces after not absorbing it.
