There have been unconfirmed suspicions that aluminum toxicity is at least a factor for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. There seems to be no doubt that aluminum is a neurotoxin, but whether there is an aluminum link to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, has not been fully explored just recently.

A new study, “Aluminium [British spelling] in brain tissue in familial Alzheimer’s disease” does just that.

It was conducted in King’s College of London and Keele University of Staffordshire, UK, and published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology.
