Aluminum is a source of heavy metal toxicity due to commonly used household items. Unlike other trace elements, the human body does not need aluminum. We consume low levels of aluminum in foods, but when we are exposed to repeated higher quantities the body begins to store it. Higher doses of aluminum builds up in the body after cooking with aluminum foil or pans, consuming antacids, recieving vaccines, drinking canned soda or beer and applying aluminum containing deoderants. When aluminum can not be processed by the body properly so it builds up in the brain, kidneys, liver, lungs and thyroid creating a platform for disease processes. The effects of heavy metal build up in the body associated with aluminum has been well-documented and is shown to cause oxidative stress on the central nervous system leading to conditions such as Parkinson’s disease , Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and bone demineralization. Aluminum in deoderant is also closely linked with the developement of breast cancer.

Step 1: Do not cook with aluminum foil or pans.
Step 2: Stop consuming products that have aliminum additives. Many antacids contain Aluminum Hydroxide and Magnesium Hydroxide.
