What About The Aluminum We Eat, Wear and Breathe?

How safe is your family and the products you use every day? 


Do you have any family members with Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease?


Did you know that Alzheimer's disease is now the seventh leading cause of deaths in the USA. 


Heavy metals in the brain (60% fat) cause Alzheimer’s.


Many scientific resources as well as a leading Indian scientific authority warns that the use of aluminum cookware may contribute significantly to the development of Alzheimer's disease and other nervous disorders. Toxic levels of aluminum have also been associated with Parkinson's disease, various dementia's and bone diseases.

The Matrix - the world we live in - has become deadly. At every turn, there is danger. There is poison everywhere - in the air (chemtrails), the soil (pesticides), your food, your water, your cookware, and even your toothpaste and shampoo.

Aluminum is a metallic element that makes up about 8.2 percent of the earth’s crust. Since the discovery of cheap processes to extract aluminum from compounds like aluminum oxide and bauxite in the late 1800s, aluminum has been used in a variety industries and products. The human body does not need aluminum, but because food additives and cooking utensils contain aluminum, you may get exposed to this potentially harmful element.


Medications: 

Aluminum is present in many popular over the counter and prescription medicines such as antacids, pain-killers and anti-diarrhea medicines. 

Antacids can contain 200 milligrams or more of elemental aluminum in a single tablet - ten times more than the allegedly acceptable 20 milligrams per day. A very popular antacid, Amphojel, consists of aluminum hydroxide.

And vaccines - according the the CDC website! Click here to view.


What Foods Contain Harmful Aluminum?

Because aluminum makes up a significant portion of the earth’s crust, soil and water contain aluminum, which means that most foods contain at least trace amounts of this metal. Ingesting small amounts of aluminum may not cause harm, but over time aluminum builds up within your body. Some foods, like baking powder and processed cheeses, have higher than natural levels of aluminum because they contain aluminum-based food additives. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers the following food additives as “GRAS – Generally Recognized as Safe”: aluminum ammonium sulfate, aluminum calcium silicate, aluminum nicotinate, aluminum potassium sulfate, aluminum sodium sulfate, aluminum stearate, sodium aluminum phosphate and aluminum sulfate. Many still question the safety of these food additives, however. The group known as the Department of the Planet Earth petitioned the FDA in September 2005 to rescind the GRAS rating for these additives, citing studies linking aluminum food additive ingestion to Alzheimer’s disease.    It was rejected.

 


Pickles add flavor and crunch to your favorite foods, but may also add aluminum. 

Pickles may contain a significant level of aluminum. Some manufacturers add alum, an aluminum salt such as aluminum sulfate or potassium aluminum sulfate, during the pickling process to add firmness and crispness to the pickles. You can avoid ingesting aluminum by choosing pickles that do not contain alum. 

Aluminum is added as an emulsifying agent in many processed cheeses, especially those which are single sliced.


Webmaster note: 

BTW, I sent the email below to the customer service dept of the Daiya Foods Inc, maker of non-dairy Daiya cheeses - and  waiting for a response. 

I will post their response as soon as it arrives.

I mailed this question to you a couple years ago - but never received an answer. The silence told me the answer was  -YES.   However, I thought I would try again…

I discovered that dairy cheeses get their ’stretchiness’ from being processed with aluminum. In fact, it is one of the highest sources of aluminum in the human diet. Aluminum is not listed in the ingredients because it is used in the processing - and not as an added ingredient.    

So my question is - does Daiya Foods use aluminum in the processing of their cheese products?

I thank you for your response in advance.

Sincerely,

Other Foods That May Contain Aluminum:

Baking powder: Some brands contain aluminum.  

Chocolate Mixes: Highly absorbable aluminum maltol is used in instant chocolate mixes. 

Coffee Whiteners/Nondairy Creamers: Like Coffee-mate - Sodium Aluminosilicate. 

Doughs: Some ready made doughs can contain it. 

Flour: Self rising flour may contain aluminum. 

Various Vegetable and Fruit Breads i.e. Corn Bread, Banana Bread Carrot Bread

Cake Mixes

Salt: Free flowing - like Morton’s (When it Rains - it Pours)

Dipping Batter for Fried Foods

Microwave popcorn

Salted Snacks

Waffles

Pancakes

Flour Torillas

Pizza Crusts

Muffins

Doughnuts

Cookies

Cupcakes

Baking Mixes

Brownies

Pastries


Additives: 

The following additives contain aluminum compounds - E173, E520, E521, E523 E541, E545, E554, E555 E556, E559, bauxite (Aluminum dioxide) 


Cooking

                  Many pans and cooking utensils are made of aluminum. 

Even if you avoid eating foods containing aluminum food additives, you could be adding aluminum to your food without even realizing it. Cookware manufacturers choose to use aluminum because it conducts heat effectively and uniformly, allowing foods to cook evenly. Cooking foods, especially acidic foods like fruits, tomatoes and wine, in pans made from aluminum can cause aluminum to leach into your food. To prevent this, manufacturers developed anodized aluminum, which retains the heat conductivity properties but creates a hard surface that does not react with food. To prevent scratches that can harm the surface and allow aluminum into your food, use only wood or plastic utensils when cooking food in these pans.

       Deodorants contain aluminum. 

Body Care Products: 
Aluminum lauryl sulfate is a common ingredient in many shampoos, while several anti dandruff shampoos, including Selsun-Blue, contain magnesium aluminum silicate. Aluminum is an active ingredient in most antiperspirants (aluminum chlorhydrate). 

Shampoos: Aluminum lauryl sulfate. 
Anti dandruff shampoos, including Selsun-Blue, contain magnesium aluminum silicate. 
Toothpastes: Can contain bauxite (Aluminum dioxide) or aluminum salts and it may not be listed in the ingredients. 
Tooth whitening products also may contain aluminum. 
Antiperspirants: can contain aluminum chlorhydrate. 
Colgate-Palmolive products do contain aluminum zirconium.

Drinking Water: 
Drinking water in many countries contains high levels of aluminum. Fluoride added to drinking water becomes a deadly cocktail. Fluoride has been observed to have synergistic effects on the toxicity of aluminum. Fluoride appears to allow aluminum to penetrate the blood-brain barrier.

Protection: 
Aluminum is more likely to accumulate in the brains of people who are magnesium deficient. This includes a large percentage of Americans. Aluminum inactivates an enzyme that protects nerve cells. Malic acid can pull aluminum away from this enzyme, making a place for magnesium. Take Magnesium Malate or Magnesium with Malic Acid found abundantly in fruits such as apples. This may possibly create protection against Alzheimer's Disease.

Foods that remove heavy metals naturally:
Onions, Blue Green Algae, Garlic, Cilantro, Burdock, Bentonite (high grade), Carrot Juice and Green Tea.
Because it helps the body to rebuild nerve tissues, chlorella has become an excellent treatment option for those suffering from degenerative brain and nerve disorders.

Carrot Juice:
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, October 1985, 
fresh carrot juice can pull heavy metals from fatty tissue and discharge them from the system.


Effects of Aluminum


                                               Cooking acidic foods in aluminum can make it easy for aluminum to leach into your food. 

The New York University Langone Medical Center reports that although small amounts of aluminum usually cause no harm, prolonged exposure or exposure to high levels can cause serious medical problems. Harmful exposure occurs over time, from eating foods that contain the food additive sodium aluminum phosphate or from living near aluminum mining. Short-term exposure, such as from breathing aluminum dust in the workplace, is also harmful. Aluminum toxicity affects the musculoskeletal system and brain, causing muscle weakness, bone pain, osteoporosis, delayed growth in children, altered   mental abilities, dementia and seizures.


Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease are also seriously linked to dry cleaning (tetrachloroethlene), chemtrails, vaccinations (as noted above) and pesticides.
