Washington, DC (July 6, 2015) Inspiring the general public to question aluminum safety policies is the goal of a new social media campaign, entitled “Makes You Wonder,” that is being launched by the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI).
According to CMSRI, while the evidence against the safety of aluminum in foods, cosmetics and skincare products continues to mount, consumer awareness and acceptance of the research results has lagged far behind. The non-profit research organization is highlighting the contradictions in the government’s safety policies so consumers can question what they’ve been told and come to their own conclusions.
According to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, aluminum is toxic to the human body -- specifically to the central nervous system -- when ingested, internalized or applied. Studies by respected medical institutions worldwide link aluminum to autoimmune diseases, particularly degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control, brain and bone disease, also caused by high levels of aluminum in the body, have been seen in children with kidney disease.
CMSRI is launching a series of “Makes You Wonder” photo quotes on Facebook and Twitter and is calling on food and drug safety advocates to Like, Share and Comment on them. The photo quotes feature a single fact and contradictory policy, such as:
CMSRI believes that aluminum, like lead, should be avoided due to adverse health effects.
CMSRI’s research and education program’s aim is to inspire a shift in consumer preference for aluminum-free products that will provide an incentive for all manufacturers to remove it.
The Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute is a medical and scientific collaborative established to provide research funding for independent studies on causal factors underlying the chronic disease and disability epidemic. The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is publicly funded and 100% of donations support new CMSRI research.
