Dr. Russell L. Blaylock has authored a paper linking aluminum's neuro-toxic effects to excitotoxic processes in the brain. It is even more harmful when linked with fluoride. And it is not easy to remove from the body/brain. It builds up, and soon leads to neurological problems such as trembling, seizures, equilibrium disturbances, etc:
“…Interestingly, much like aluminum, other neurotoxic metals commonly found in the environment such as mercury, lead and manganese, have also been shown to activate glial cells, promote both inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain…It is worth emphasizing that all of these metal-induced neurotoxic effects are indicative of excitotoxic processes…It is of significant concern that low-levels of environmental aluminum are sufficient to induce neurotoxic outcomes…It is of considerable interest that 50% of the animals given subcutaneous injections of aluminum glutamate developed neurological disturbances such as trembling, equilibrium disturbances and convulsions…leading to death. This is suggestive of an excitotoxic effect.

Where is aluminum found? How many people use aluminum foil to cook and store foods? They also cook in aluminum pots. Not wise. It can also be found in baking soda, cake mixes, deodorants, process cheese, drink cans, vaccinations, antacids, shampoos, lotions, etc.
It often only takes small amounts - which can easily build up - to lead to neurological problems such as chronic fatigue, dizziness, dementia, epilepsy, ADD, etc:
"The following food additives contain aluminum compounds: E173, E520, E521, E523 E541, E545, E554, E555 E556, E559. Aluminum is a common food additive found in foods such as processed cheeses, table salt, baking powders, pickles, bleached flour, prepared dough, cake mixes, non-dairy creamers, vanilla powders and some donuts and waffles...Aluminum can be found in toothpastes, nasal sprays, anti-antiperspirants, dental amalgams, cigarette filters and pesticides..."
How important it is to eat organic, and read ingredients - especially for those already showing sensitivity to toxic metals, etc.
