According to the CDC's own statistics, more than 10 million vaccines are given every year to infants. Not so well publicized, however, is the fact that aluminum — a known neurotoxin — is routinely used as an additive in many common vaccines to increase their long-term effects.
In fact, children today receive a staggering 17 shots that contain aluminum – a huge increase over the four they would have received in the 1970's and mid-1980's.
Why are they poisoning our children with a known neurotoxic agent? On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Christopher Exley, PhD – a professor of bioinorganic chemistry and leading authority on aluminum toxicity – talk about the dangers of aluminum, along with natural solutions and techniques for preventing and reversing neurological damage.
Experts sound the alarm about the dangers of neurotoxic aluminum in vaccines
Aluminum is the third most abundant element of the Earth's crust. But, the mining and processing of aluminum ores, as well as the widespread production of aluminum products, are causing a wide variety of health issues – never seen in human history.
According to Dr. Exley, we are now living in the “aluminum age,” with this unwanted element found in a dizzying variety of foods, drugs and cosmetics – including baking powder, antacids, sunscreen, deodorant and baby formula, to name just a few. Yet, there is absolutely no (good) reason for aluminum to be put inside the human body.
Even more disturbing than the presence of aluminum in common products, however, may be its use in vaccines. Due to the ever-increasing vaccination schedule promoted by government health agencies, aluminum is being injected directly into our children on a daily basis – in such common vaccines as DTap (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) and the Hepatitis B vaccine, which is routinely given to newborns.
Do you know if you or your child suffers from aluminum toxicity? Join Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Exley for a show that addresses the effects of aluminum exposure plus, practical solutions.
Aluminum is being linked to autism and Alzheimer's disease
It would be a double tragedy if aluminum – which threatens the health of our children, when injected into infants – is also shown to cause neurological impairments in our senior years – but this is the picture that is beginning to emerge.
The brain is a “target for aluminum,” Dr. Exley warns that a lifetime's accumulation of aluminum in the brain can finally reach a “toxic threshold” – and set the stage for neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases. Dr. Exley reports that aluminum toxicity can cause Alzheimer's disease to develop earlier in life, as well as causing a more aggressive and rapid progression.
In fact, injected aluminum – in animal studies – have been shown to cause behavioral changes and cognitive deficits, including increased anxiety, reduced attention to tasks, increased aggression, and memory loss – mimicking a phenomenon that some scientists and psychologists say is being seen more and more frequently in modern human behavior. We're talking about the kind of damage to motor neurons in the brain and nervous system that can trigger Lou Gehrig's disease, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
Join us on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour to discover how you can prevent or reduce your exposure to aluminum, along with natural, non-invasive ways to detoxify the body.
This week's guest: Christopher Exley, PhD – biologist and internationally-recognized expert on aluminum toxicity
Christopher Exley, PhD, a biologist and professor of bioinorganic chemistry in the Aluminum and Silicon Research Group of Birchall Centre at Keele University, received his Ph.D. on the ecotoxicology of aluminum from the University of Stirling, and is one of the world's leading authorities on aluminum exposure and toxicity.
His articles have been published in dozens of peer-reviewed publications, including Frontiers in Neurology, The Lancet, and the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry. He is also the editor of “Aluminum and Alzheimer's Disease: The Science that Describes the Link.”
