The Dangers of Aluminum

January 11, 2011

If you don't already know, aluminum poses a very serious danger to the human body, and in small amounts. Here's a little background about aluminum.

Aluminum does not occur as a free metal but is found in minerals and ores. In its natural state it doesn't pose a threat. It's plentiful, (most abundant metal in the earth), and it is cheaply extracted for use in many things. It is resistant to corrosion and very light weight.

For these reasons, aluminum is used widely, in places you may not even thing to look for it. We wear it, cook in it, with it, eat and drink it and there is no use for aluminum in the human body. It is dangerous, toxic, to the human body and we continue to use it. Broad uses of aluminum in consumer products include:

Aluminum in the Home:

 

  • Cookware
  • Foil
  • Flatware
  • Cans Used for Food & Drink
  • Aluminum in Health & Hygiene Applications:

     

    • Antacids
    • Buffered Aspirin
    • Vaccines
    • Vaginal Douches
    • Hemorrhoid Medications
    • Anti-Diarrhea Medications
  • Astringents
  • Nasal Sprays
  • Baby Powder
  • Dentures
  • Lipsticks
  • Talcum Powder
  • Aluminum Is Commonly Added To:

     

    • Baking Powder
    • Self-Rising Flour
    • Table Salt
  • Pickling Salt
  • Processed Cheese
  • Cake Mix
  • Natural Dangers are Largely Unavoidable

    Not only do we use it in all sorts of products, but acid rain also plays a part in presenting the metal in forms that we can ingest. Acid rain breaks down aluminum in the earth which then runs off into our water supplies. It then contaminates the seafood. It's in cigarette smoke so we breathe it in as well.

    How does aluminum behave in your body?

    Once ingested, aluminum accumulates in various tissues in the body, including the kidneys, brain, lungs, liver and thyroid. Aluminum competes with calcium for absorption and it can result in reduced skeletal mineralization. In infants this retards growth. It also interferes with phosphorous absorption, zinc and selenium.

    What are the Dangers from Aluminum Toxicity?

    Remember that living cells make no good use of aluminum. Aluminum can make you very ill. Some people are allergic to aluminum and will develop a skin rash (contact dermatitis).

    Possible Dangers from Aluminum Toxicity:

     

    • Malfunction of the Blood-Brain Barrier
    • Stomach & Intestinal Ulcers
    • Gastrointestinal Disease
    • Parkinson's Disease
    • Skin Problems
    • Hyperactivity
    • Mental Retardation in Infants
    • Learning Disorders in Children
  • Liver Disease
  • Headaches
  • Heartburn
  • Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Colicky Pain
  • Lack of Energy
  • Flatulence
  • Are there Alternatives to using Aluminum?

    Eating foods cooked in aluminum cookware can cause an inflamed colon. Consuming antacids that include the toxin aluminum hydroxide, distresses the digestive system to the point of disrupting healthy bowel function.

    There are alternatives to cooking with aluminum. There are choices for different cookware, such as glass. There are organic supplements that reduce the impact of acid indigestion. A healthy diet of organic foods, grown in areas where the pesticides are not poisonous is a good practice. You can grow your own food in areas where the toxins are relatively minor.

    

    I suggest you look for Aluminum-free products. A great alternative deodorant is made by Tom's Of Maine and can be found at Walgreens, CVS and Walmart.

     

    AZ shooter and Congress Woman romantically involved?

    January 10, 2011
    If you have seen the coverage of the AZ shooting, Jared Loughner (the suspect) has been painted as a anarchist lunatic. But with careful review of the available evidence online, one can paint another picture. In a strange turn of events, the  Congress woman Gifford, who was hospitalized after being shot was actually a subscriber of Jared Loughner's youtube page. You can see a screen shot taken from her youtube account here.

    Another interesting followup is that the suspect who was originally t...

    Assertive Chinese Held in Mental Wards

    November 13, 2010
    Xu Lindong, a poor village farmer with close-cropped hair and a fourth-grade education, knew nothing but decades of backbreaking labor. Even at age 50, the rope of muscles on his arms bespoke a lifetime of hard plowing and harvesting in the fields of his native Henan Province.

    But after four years locked up in Zhumadian Psychiatric Hospital, he was barely recognizable to his siblings. Emaciated, barefoot, clad in tattered striped pajamas, Mr. Xu spoke haltingly. His face was etched with exhaus...

    Absolute Fabrication

    November 11, 2010
    Over the past 2 months, NFormd radio and some of the hosts have endured daily harassment by what we now believe to be a network set up to tear apart the movement. After several articles with mostly fabricated lies being posted on their site, that have no bearing on what this movement is or stands for, I have decided to debunk all of this. I want to assure our listeners and anyone else who reads this, that NFormD radio has no "beef" with anyone and we will continue in a forward motion.

    Jail for parents who skip kids' school conferences

    November 4, 2010
    Detroit — Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy is pushing for a law that calls for jail time for parents who skip parent-teacher conferences, a plan some call inspired and others consider the nanny state run amok.

    Worthy pitched her plan Tuesday to the Detroit City Council and is shopping it to the Wayne County Commission and state Legislature. Drawing a link between parental involvement and youth crime, Worthy wants a sponsor to guide the idea to law.

    Her plan would require parents to attend a...

    Millions Of Pieces of Halloween Candy Found to be poisoned!

    November 1, 2010
    For years now parents have been taught to check their children's halloween candy for pin holes, tears or other signs that the candy may have been tampered with. But most parents fail to look at the obvious sign of poisoning, the ingredients on the package. After digging through my own children's bags looking for something to cure my sweet tooth, I began reading the labels. Interesting chemicals I found in most of our favorite treats.

    Friendly Reminder: Study Shows You are More Likely to Killed By a Cop Than a Terrorist

    November 1, 2010

    After 9/11, the fear of another attack on U.S. soil cleanly supplanted the fear of having one`s penis chopped off by a vengeful lover in the pantheon of irrational American fears.

    While we`re constantly being told that another attack is imminent and that radical Islamic fundamentalists are two steps away from establishing a caliphate in Branson, Missouri, just how close are they? How do the odds of dying in a terrorist attack stack up against the odds of dying in other unfortunate situations?
