Overweight people have more aluminium in their bodies


Researchers at Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (RUDN) have discovered that the levels of aluminium found in the hair and urine of obese people is higher than average.

One hypothesis is that aluminium can affect metabolism and provoke obesity. The article was published in Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology.

There are more than two billion obese people on the planet. The main reason for this is overeating and a sedentary lifestyle, although other factors, such as genetic predisposition and environmental conditions, can also push a person towards being overweight.

Studies show that microelements that enter the body can play a role. Mercury, cadmium, lead, as well as tin compounds are the leading metals that can affect the weight of an individual. Aluminium is also considered a toxic metal, that can cause inflammation and oxidative stress in cells. That is why doctors from the group of Anatoly Skalny, head of the Department of Medical Elementology at RUDN University, decided to study if there is a connection between this metal and excess weight.

The research involved 205 people with increased body mass index (BMI) and 206 people with normal weight in a control group. Generally, if the BMI of a person exceeds 30, then a person is believed to be overweight. In the control group, BMI averaged 22.5, and 33.3 in the experimental group.

Each participant of this study was asked if they suffer from hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, or have bad habits, whether they live close to a source of metal emissions, and if they have metal implants. Then, urine and hair samples were taken from all participants and analysed using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), a method that allows detecting even miniscule amounts of chemical elements in samples.

The average levels of aluminium in the hair and urine of overweight people were higher than in the control group members: by 31% and 46%, respectively. Alternatively, no correlation between the metal content and hypertension, atherosclerosis, and other diseases has been observed. The association between increased aluminium and excess weight was observed only if it was found in urine, meanwhile the relation between the increased BMI and aluminium in the hair was not statistically significant, that is, it could have been a product of random deviations.

RUDN University scientists have concluded that the aluminium content in the body indeed increases in individuals with obesity. It remains unclear, however, what comes first: it is both possible that people with obesity simply consume a lot of aluminium with food and that aluminium changes the metabolism and that leads to obesity. Anatoly Skalny and his colleagues are planning further research to find answers to these questions.

The latest health check of Malaysians was just recently released and the prognosis is bad .

50% of Malaysians are obese and WHO named Malaysia as the fattest country in Asia .

Obesity is also shown to be a risk factor for COVID-19 and also predisposes to risk of higher mortality in young COVID-19 patients .

 Could it be that Malaysians may be consuming and exposing to too much aluminium . Since we are living in the Aluminum Age ,where aluminum is ubiquitous ( presence everywhere)

Even the air particulate that we breathe in , are mostly made up of alumin and it gets into our brain directly without going through the blood-brain barrier .

Watch a very brief video of Professor Exley explaining aluminum in air particulate .

So what can we do to minimize the risk of the scourge of aluminum toxicity that we face daily ?

I would suggest , reduce exposure and consumption of products that are known to contain high aluminum additives . Exercise good disciplines of eating nutritional food and healthy lifestyles. Another very effective way of removing aluminum from your body is to take the advice of Mr. Aluminum , Professor Exley , a 35 years expert in studying aluminum toxicity . The professor has discovered that the trace element , Silicon as Silicic Acid is the natural antagonist for aluminum.

Two clinical trials performed on SPRITZER-The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water and results published in independent peer-reviewed journals , showing the very effective removal of aluminum when drank 1 to 1.5 liter daily for just 12 weeks .

Here is a quote from the good professor in his latest talk at the Medical Society of London on 27 February 2020.

“ I am drinking a silicon rich mineral water now and I spent as someone in the audience can tell you , 50-60 pounds a month on buying this , is because science tells me that when I drink this, I pee aluminum ———-. In other words , it helps me get aluminum out of the body. And this is the only ,only only thing that has gone through independent science and peer reviewed that has shown to be the case.”

“ I will drink one of these for the rest of my life because I live in the Aluminum Age, I cannot avoid it . And in some cases I won’t avoid it because I like a ——– and things got aluminum in it . So I drink a silicon rich mineral water to help remove it from my body and maybe it also helps with disease. “

Apart from removing aluminum toxicity , silicon also have these benefits :

So choose SPRITZER-The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water for you and your family daily hydration needs and enjoy the healthy benefits that come with it .
