Long-term exposure to bauxite dust can lead to Alzheimer’s, says researcher


By: New Straits Times Online – January 6, 2016

KUANTAN: Long-term exposure to bauxite dust can lead to miners and residents living along transport routes developing Alzheimer’s disease, said Research fellow at Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin’s (UniSZA) Air Quality Division of the East Coast Environmental Research Institute, Dr. Azman Azid.

He said bauxite contained aluminium hydroxide and if inhaled, the bauxite dust which is released into the air over a long period of time could block the oxygen supply to the blood and nervous system. “When the brain does not get sufficient oxygen, a person is exposed to the risk of Alzheimer’s or suffering memory loss,” he told Bernama when contacted here today.

Most of you would have read about the bauxite issues in Kuantan, Pahang. Today in the Malay Mail, “Bauxite mining has adverse impact on food chain, geologist warns” (click here for article), Assoc. Professor Dr. Habibah Jamil from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) stressed the same warning that long term exposure to aluminium hydroxide can cause Alzheimer’s disease.

Bauxite is the raw material for aluminium. Whether we realise it or not, today we are living in “The Aluminium Age” implying that aluminium is ubiquitous or present everywhere in our daily living, ranging from CD’s, cars, kitchenware, electric power lines, computers, furniture, aircraft to food and medicines.

Below are sources that will have an effect of our health.

Aluminium is a known neurotoxin and all of us are accumulating this toxin into our brain from baby to our death. Aluminium builds up in the brain until it reaches a “toxic threshold” that may trigger memory loss and eventually lead to Alzheimer’s disease.

However, there is good news. Research performed on SPRITZER – the Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water at Keele University in UK showed that aluminium can be effectively removed from your body through urine, just by simply drinking one litre daily of SPRITZER – the Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water. The research concluded that long term drinking of Spritzer – the Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water, can reduce an individual’s everyday exposure to aluminium and lower their body burden of this unwanted toxin. Early indications are that in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease the lowering of the body burden of aluminium may benefit cognitive function (brain health).
