Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research outlining how the dangers of aluminum in everyday products is becoming more of an issue.
As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/general-health-2/hidden-metals-and-toxins-hiding-all-over-your-house/) According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, aluminum is extremely abundant and widely distributed and you will always be exposed to it through food, water, and air.
Aluminum is a heavy metal that is used for a large variety of industrial applications and it is also one of the greatest toxins found in consumer products today. Aluminum enters the body through your lungs, through the digestive tract and through the skin. It builds-up in your kidneys, liver, brain and thyroid and it attacks the central nervous system. Studies have found that aluminum and other hidden metals are potent toxins that harm the brain by causing both inflammation and free radical induced damage.
In fact, aluminum exposure is associated with memory loss and a decline in cognitive abilities in the elderly, as well as degenerative brain disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease. A high level of aluminum exposure may also lead to reproductive issues, anemia, nervous system disorders, headaches, insomnia, soft and brittle bones, glucose intolerance and cardiac arrest.
As the Bel Marra Health article reads, although aluminum is naturally present in many of the foods that people eat, the levels of aluminum are generally low enough to be considered safe. However, if you are truly concerned about aluminum exposure, consider eliminating tea, all products made with baking powder, processed cheese and grain products, because they tend to contain the highest amounts of aluminum.
Aluminum is especially abundant in a medical cabinet. Many antacids contain aluminum and studies have linked a large intake of aluminum-containing antacids to calcium loss and osteoporosis (weak bones). Due to the fact that post-menopausal woman have a higher risk for developing osteoporosis, it is considered especially important that they avoid aluminum-containing antacids.
