#011: Aluminum, Autism and Alzheimer’s Disease

We are living in the Age of Aluminum according to Prof Chris Exley. Today’s show is an enlightening journey into the world of Aluminum.

We discuss how Aluminum has been removed from the earth’s crust and entered nearly every facet of our lives – from our environment, to the animals and up the food chain to human beings. Chris explains how we become toxic, the impact of vaccines and how Aluminum accumulates in the body. We talk about the health effects of Aluminum including Autism and Alzheimer’s; and whether there are genetic factors, microbiome issues and other metabolic problems with Aluminum detoxification

Lastly, and most importantly, we discuss Chris’s methods for properly assessing the body’s Aluminum load and his cutting-edge research into effective Aluminum detoxification!

Prof Exley is a biologist (University of Stirling) with a PhD in the ecotoxicology of aluminium (University of Stirling). His research career (1984-present) has focused upon an intriguing paradox; ‘how come the third most abundant element of the Earth’s crust (aluminium) is non-essential and largely inimical to life’. Investigating this mystery has required research in myriad fields from the basic inorganic chemistry of the reaction of aluminium and silicon to the potentially complex biological availability of aluminium in humans.

    MS, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson, ADHD, Autism, Rheumatism, Psoriasis, Morbus Chron, Alzheimer’s is a diagnosis, CFS a name given to a bunch of symptoms, some lab work and pathologic and or radiologic findings. It is known, that there is a genetic predisposition to get the particular disease, but also a genetic predisposition to be heavy metal-sensitive (ApoE 4, GSTP1) and this is when environmental factors come into play. We don’t know, when the genetic predisposition overrides the order of the system and expresses the code, MS or the others, which were not diagnosed before, neither do we know, why the symptoms are getting better or worse, changing all the time, let’s say, on daily bases, without a drug can help !

    The importance of environmental factors plus heavy metal-sensitivity, mainly mercury, and it is not the amount of mercury (toxicologically), that is important, it is the vibration, irritation, each molecule can propagate on your system, which disturbs the order of your system, which determines the severity of symptoms, all the way to dysautonomia.

    Let’s say, the intracellular amount of mercury was about the same last and this week, but the symptoms varied in intensity; this means, that the daily exposure or contact with the molecule varied and is important. For example: you can eat a fish, even Tuna, which was never exposed to mercury, having super omega 3’s for you and you feel great, and the next day you get a fish, loaded with mercury, and you feel terrible and you look for reasons and you don’t find an explanation for it.

    That’s why it’s important for you to know how to avoid the molecules of mercury you ingest, inhale or put on your skin and to learn how to test everything before it enters your system and disturbs the order of your system ( Cosmetics, detergents, soap, water, paper, herbs, fruits, medications, dental material, etc. EVERYTHING).

    Other patients are sensitive to Aluminum, Fluoride or Iridium for example. Very important are also dental foci excreting mercaptan and thioether, weakening the order of the system. Treat the cause and not the symptoms !
    Sensitivity vs Toxicity

    You have to understand the difference between sensitivity and toxicity. If you are sensitive to mercury, your body reacts to the exposure of each single molecule of mercury from inhalation, ingestion or transdermally and disturbs your order of your system, especially influences the predisposed weak spots of your system (skin, immune system, joint fluid, etc.).

    Mercury-sensitivity and ApoE4, Boyd Haley PhD explains why the apolipoprotein-4 (APOE-4) genotype represents a genetic susceptibility to mercury toxicity .
    In 1997, APO-E4 was identified as a significant risk factor for early onset of Alzheimer’s with APO-E2 being identified as protective against AD. [18] Several subsequent papers failed to clarify the reason. APO-E has 299 amino acids with different ratios of cysteine and arginine at position 112 and 158. APO-E2 has 2 cysteine’s, apo-E3 one cysteine and one arginine, and APO-E4 two arginine’s.[19]As arginine, unlike cysteine, lacks the sulphydryl (SH) groups to potentially bind bivalent metals such as mercury, lead, copper or zinc, it would be logical to suspect the possibility of increased metal accumulation in those chronically exposed individuals who had not inherited APO-E2. Godfrey 2003 found there was a statistically significant increase in adverse effects in those patients having APO-E4/4 and APO-E 3/4 where those patients were chronically exposed to mercury. Godrey went on to explain why this occurs:

    According to Saunders, the underlying reason for the Apo-E-associated differences in AD susceptibility remains a mystery. However, a logical biochemical explanation has been proposed by Pendergrass and Haley, based on the different amino-acid configurations of the three ApoE.

    isomers and their potential relevance to mercury elimination. Only E2 (with two cysteine -SH groups), and to a lesser extent E3 (with one –SH group), are able to bind and remove mercury from the brain and cerebrospinal fluid. This would oppose accumulation of mercury which is reported to be causal for the unique brain lesions that typify the AD brain including neurofibrillary tangles.

    If you are not disturbed by this vibration or frequency of mercury, your body is able to take care of all other toxins (Arsenic, Aluminum, Meds, Alcohol, Pesticides, Mycotoxins, etc., not in a toxicological dose), you are getting exposed to and your body is able to use compensatory pathways to make up weaknesses (genetic), If disturbed, your body is not able to do this and will even react uncontrolled , irrational, dysautonomic (allergic). Other patients are sensitive to Aluminum, Fluoride, Palladium, Iridium, Indium, Gold, Titan, Silicium, Formaldehyde and react to the vibration of this particular element and not to mercury. The word ‘Multiple Chemical Sensitivity’ should be individually narrowed down to the one or seldom two chemical elements. The patient is sensitive to a product (fragrance, food, cosmetics, etc.), because it contains, in trace amounts, the chemical element, and this can vary from charge to charge.
