Professor Chrisopher Exley of Keele University claims that aluminium present in everyday items like cosmetics and food may be building up in the brain and causing Alzheimer’s disease

Aluminium poisoning may fuel Alzheimer's disease

Aluminium poisoning may be fuelling Alzheimer’s disease, a leading professor has claimed.

Professor Chrisopher Exley, of Keele University, said that exposure to the metal causes deposits in the human brain which can exacerbate other problems.

Writing in the journal Frontiers in Neurology he said: “We are all accumulating a known neurotoxin in our brain from our conception to our death.

“The presence of aluminium in the human brain should be a red flag alerting us all to the potential dangers of the aluminium age

“How do we know that Alzheimer’s disease is not the manifestation of chronic aluminium toxicity in humans?”

Aluminium, he argues, is now added to or used in almost everything we eat, drink, inject or absorb.

The metal is abundant in the Earth’s crust and is naturally absorbed from the soil by plants and foodstuffs.

But aluminium sulphate is also added to water to improve clarity, to cakes and biscuits as a raising agent and it is in tea, cocoa, wine and fizzy drinks.

Cosmetics, sunscreens and antiperspirants are likely to contain aluminium as well as some medications such as aspirin or antacids.

The body naturally excretes aluminium but large amounts are deposited in the nerves, brain, bone, liver, heart, spleen and muscle.

Prof Exley argues that aluminium builds up in the brain until it reaches a ‘toxic threshold’ beyond which neurons cannot cope.

“If the same neuron or brain tissue is also suffering other insults, or another on-going degenerative condition, then the additional response to aluminium will exacerbate these effects,” 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.”

“There are neither cures nor effective treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. The role of aluminium in Alzheimer’s disease can be prevented by reducing human exposure to aluminium and by removing aluminium from the body by non-invasive means. Why are we choosing to miss out on this opportunity? Surely the time has come to test the aluminium hypothesis of Alzheimer’s disease once and for all?”

In 1988, 20 tonnes of aluminium sulphate leaked into the water supply serving the town of Camelford in Cornwall.

Campaigner Carole Cross, 59, died from a rare and aggressive form of Alzheimer’s and her brain was found to contain higher than usual levels of aluminium.

At the time, the West Somerset coroner said she had been exposed to “an excessive amount” of aluminium in the contaminated water.

Spritzer BottleProfessor Christopher Exley’s research has shown that the best and effective way to remove aluminium from the body and to achieve maximum protection against everyday human exposure to aluminium is to drink one(1) litre daily of a silicon(OSA) rich natural mineral water such as SPRITZER. He said this should become normal part of an individual’s diet and lifestyle. The research published in the prestigious Journal of Alzheimers Diseses (2013) (click here and here to view) has demonstrated that long term drinking of a silicon(OSA) rich natural mineral water, such as SPRITZER, can reduce an individual’s everyday exposure to aluminium and lower their body burden of this unwanted neurotoxin. Early indications are that in individuals with Alzheimers Disease the lowering of the body burden of aluminium may benefit cognitive function.

So be a wise consumer, choose SPRITZER-the Silicon(OSA) Rich Natural Mineral Water for your hydration needs and who knows in later years your brain may still be very alert.

OSA also found to synthesise collagen in the body and hence good for collagenous or connective tissues such as bone, skin,hair , nails and blood vessels. Visit or for more news on benefits of OSA.

SPRITZER-the Silicon(OSA) Rich Natural Mineral Water is Malaysia’s best selling natural mineral water and is produced and bottled out of a vast landbank of 330 acres endowed with pristine surrounding of natural tropical rain forest, providing an ideal environment of high and safe quality natural mineral water. From source to bottle, SPRITZER is untouched by human hands.
