Aluminum

The awareness of evidence regarding aluminum exposure and its negative effects on our bodies is growing.  Researchers have been linking aluminum exposure to neurological disorders such as Alzheimers, Parkinsons, ADHD, and even cancer for years.  In fact, “there has been a strong link between human exposure to aluminum and the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease for half a century or more” says Chris Exley, PhD, of Keele University in England who has been studying the impact of aluminum on the human body since 1984.1 Aluminum occurs naturally is the soil, water, and air but we are contributing to the load by manufacturing of aluminum products, power plants, pollution from industrialization, “chemtrails” from aircraft in the skies, and vaccines.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Baby, It’s Cold Outside
