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. Aluminum is used widely, in places you may not even think to look for it. Once ingested, aluminum accumulates in various tissues in the body, including the kidneys, brain, lungs, liver and thyroid. Aluminum competes with calcium for absorption. Even though aluminum is found everywhere – air, water, earth. It’s been indicated that over exposure to aluminum is a possible cause of Alzheimer’s disease because the brain cells of patients suffering from this disease were shown to contain 10-30 times more aluminum than the average brain cells.
