“Concentrations of aluminium in the range of those detected in human
tissues promote chromosome instability in mammalian cells”.

  • What is the background of your research?

Aluminium, added to many products of regular use, is a suspected human carcinogen. Chromosome Instability (CIN), consisting of high rates of structural and numerical chromosome aberrations, is a well-known hallmark of cancer and is associated with poor prognosis and multidrug resistance.

  • What did you do?

We exposed Chinese hamster V79 cells, frequently used for the assessment of chemical carcinogens in regulatory toxicology, to aluminium concentrations in the range of those measured in human tissues and investigated its cellular uptake and impact on the numerical and structural integrity of chromosomes.

  • And what did you find?

 We found that the cells incorporate aluminium in a dose-dependent manner and predominantly concentrate it in the perinuclear space of the cytoplasm. Intracellular aluminium accumulation leads to a significant and dose-dependent increase in chromosomes carrying DNA double strand breaks (DSB) and numerical abnormalities. When entering mitosis, V79 cells exposed to aluminium assemble abnormal multipolar mitotic spindles and appear to cluster extra centrosomes (the organelles forming the spindle poles), possibly as an attempt to divide in a pseudo-bipolar manner. The effects observed upon aluminium exposure are well-recognized sources of chromosome DSB and segregation errors.

  • What new conclusions could you draw from this study?

 Hence, our findings show that the range of aluminium concentrations detected in human tissues promotes chromosome instability (CIN) in mammalian cells, thus supporting the hypothesis that aluminium is a human carcinogen.

133 Malaysians are diagnosed with cancer every day.  This is indeed a wake up call for all to take every precaution to live a healthy life.

Aluminium is a known toxin and is present everywhere (ubiquitous) in our diet and environment. We cannot escape the scourge of this element living in today’s Aluminium Age.

However, there are two very simple ways to reduce this aluminium risk .

(1) Try to avoid or minimise the exposure to aluminium as much as possible.

(2) Drink daily at least 1-1.5 litre of Silica( Silicon) Rich Natural Mineral Water to flush off the aluminium from the body . Silica (Silicon) as Silicic Acid ,the soluble form of Silicon is the earth’s natural protector against the toxicity of aluminium.

Two clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals vouched for the effectiveness of silica(silicon) rich natural mineral water in removing aluminium .

Below is the mechanism of what is happening in your body when you drink a Silica(Silicon) Rich Natural Mineral Water .

With the mandating of vaccines to fight the virus, the need to drink adequate amount of quality water is to be one the utmost priority of all consumers. What better choice than a Silica (Silicon) Rich Natural Mineral Water coming to you from a vast landbank of 330 acres surrounded by natural tropical rainforest far away from all pollution.
