• More evidence of aluminum’s role in Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, MS and other autoimmune conditions;
• Findings on the consequences of aluminum contamination in infant formulas; and
• Reports on the potential hidden dangers of aluminum adjuvants in vaccination and immunotherapy
These are among the many findings of scientific research conducted worldwide in 2015 and anticipated in 2016 according to Keele University’s Professor of Bioinorganic Chemistry and renowned expert in aluminum, Dr. Christopher Exley.
“The genie is out of the bottle now – there’s no going back,” says Dr. Exley. “The evidence is now overwhelming that human exposure to aluminum is a major health concern for the 21st century” “
Dr. Exley has been on the forefront of aluminum research in the environment and the human body for over 30 years and has published several ground-breaking studies, including one in 2013 that demonstrated cognitive gains by Alzheimer’s patients who consumed silicon-rich water to leach aluminum from their bodies.
On March 16th, he will be conducting a worldwide webinar on exciting new research into aluminum and autoimmune diseases, which will be live streamed on Facebook.
“Aluminum is pervasive in the products we use and consume – as well as in the vaccines we inject -- so it has been very difficult to get government funding for major studies on its potential role in the alarming rise of autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases, like Parkinson’s, ALS, MS and Alzheimer’s,” says Dr. Exley.
Along with leading researchers from Canada, France, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Portugal and the US, he will be presenting at a CMSRI-sponsored international symposium on vaccines at the annual Autoimmunity Congress in Leipzig, Germany in April. Several thousand scientists and medical researchers are expected to attend the conference.
“We will be demonstrating how subjecting a small area to an acute toxic event – injecting the aluminum adjuvant – in order to stimulate the immune system can produce a catastrophic effect,” says Dr. Exley. “The cells that come flooding into the injection site are capable of picking up large amounts of aluminum and travelling throughout the body and potentially crossing the brain-blood barrier.”
Dr. Exley will also be discussing, during the live Facebook webinar and in Leipzig, the soon-to-be published findings of his innovative research on the brains of 12 deceased Alzheimer’s Disease patients. Aluminum is non-magnetic so MRIs, CT scans and other methods have been useless in uncovering the concentrations and locations of aluminum in the brain. Using fluorescence and a fluorescence microscope, however, he and his team at Keele University will be able to identify even small amounts of aluminum and determine if these are in the areas of the brain affected by Alzheimer’s Disease.
“The number of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s – particularly early onset Alzheimer’s -- is increasing and the disease is progressing more quickly,” says Dr. Exley. “Our research has the potential to finally draw high-level attention to aluminum toxicity and hopefully, to force governments to dedicate adequate funding toward conducting the kind and scale of studies that we know will determine answers.”
There are many ways that humans are being increasingly exposed to aluminum – from daily household products and foods to prosthetics and implants -- and there are ways to avoid these. Dr. Exley will be discussing and taking questions about these, as well as about recent and upcoming research, on the Facebook live webinar on March 15th.
