Professor Chris Exley of Keele University in the UK writes in The Hippocratic Post: “Does human exposure to aluminium have a role to play in autism spectrum disorder (ASD)?” In a new study he discovered some of the highest amounts of aluminum yet measured in human brain tissue.
“Research at Keele University published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology provides the strongest indication yet that aluminium is an aetiological agent in ASD. The aluminium content of brain tissues from 5 donors who died with a diagnosis of ASD was found to be extraordinarily high, some of the highest values yet measured in human brain tissue.
While the aluminium content of each of the 5 brains was shockingly high it was the location of the aluminium in the brain tissue which served as the standout observation. The majority of aluminium was identified inside non-neuronal cells including microglia and astrocytes.
Aluminium was also found in lymphocytes in the meninges and in similar inflammatory cells in the vasculature. There was clear evidence of inflammatory cells heavily loaded with aluminium entering the brain via the meningeal membranes and the blood-brain-barrier.
Perhaps there is something within the genetic make-up of specific individuals which predisposes them to accumulate and retain aluminium in their brain, as is similarly suggested for individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease. The new evidence strongly suggests that aluminium is entering the brain in ASD via pro-inflammatory cells which have become loaded up with aluminium in the blood and/or lymph, much as has been demonstrated for monocytes at injection sites for vaccines including aluminium adjuvants. Perhaps we now have the putative link between vaccination and ASD, the link being the inclusion of an aluminium adjuvant in the vaccine.”
Professor Exley has previously presented evidence linking aluminum with Alzheimer’s.
Aluminum is now the most commonly and widely used metal on Earth and there are myriad ways in which we are exposed to it in our everyday lives including; our diet (particularly processed drinks and food); medicine (notably antacids, buffered aspirin, vaccinations); cosmetics (examples including antiperspirants and sun blocks); aerosols ( the air that we breathe can be full of particulate materials composed of aluminum).
As a preventative he suggests: We all excrete aluminium from our body in our urine. However, this does not prevent aluminium accumulating in the body with age. We have found that through regular drinking of mineral waters which are rich in silicon (more than 30 ppm silica) the excretion of aluminium in urine is facilitated in such a way that over extended periods of time aluminium is removed from the body. The body burden of aluminium can be significantly reduced.
Exley has put kids who had autism spectrum disorders or other neurological damage from vaccinations on a form of silica known as silicic acid with excellent results. Silicic acid is basically oxygenated silica. Exley considers this the best and most bio-available way to get silica through the gut and into the blood, then into brain matter where it binds with the aluminum molecules and leads them out of brain cell tissue safely through the urine.
He had used a Malasysian mineral water called Spritzer on aluminum toxic children suffering from autism spectrum disorders with significant success. Aluminum is in almost all vaccines. Later he and his team had 15 Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients use that water at the same rate of one liter per day for 13 weeks.
Aluminum levels were lower by anywhere from 50 to 70 percent in all the subjects involved, and of the 15 AD patients, eight no longer deteriorated and three actually showed substantial cognitive increase.
USA accessible mineral waters with similar levels of silicic acid to Spritzer,which can penetrate the blood-brain barrier, are Volvic and Fiji.
The suggested protocol is at least five days consuming a 1.5 liter bottle of water daily. More is required for high levels of aluminum toxicity. Dr. Exley considers drinking the whole bottle within an hour as the most efficient method of detoxing aluminum from the brain.
