(NaturalNews) A recent report found that 35 million people around the world have Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. The number is expected to double every 20 years "unless there is a medical breakthrough." Dementia rates have grown 10% over what was predicted just a few years back, and this is attributed to faster than expected growth rates in developing countries. However, far more important than any medical breakthrough would be the widespread understanding of the common things people do each day that cause and contribute to brain dysfunction and dementia. The obvious next step then, is to end those destructive habits.
Aluminum in the brain is commonly associated with Alzheimer's disease and most people apply aluminum to their skin each day in the form of deodorant. Even worse, females regularly apply aluminum-based deodorant to freshly shaven pits, which are likely to have small nicks and cuts in them. Even without those little cuts, most of what is applied to the skin ends up in the bloodstream, and this applies to ingredients in lotion, make-up and to the aluminum in deodorant.
Aluminum is also common in cooking, and aluminum pots and pans are common in homes and restaurants. However, when heated, the toxic heavy metal leaches into your food and from there, it ends up inside your body.
Particularly in developing countries, toxic cookware can be the only option available. The choices are often Teflon or aluminum, both of which are associated with serious problems, and problems that are growing at tremendous rates. In fact, this may account for the unexpected increase of dementia in developing countries.
Many people also see fit to wrap, or worse, cook foods in aluminum foil. Especially when heated, the toxic heavy metal will find its way right into your diet, and perhaps become lodged in your brain. Food packaged in aluminum cans and soft drinks are also part of the problem.
Soft drinks in aluminum cans are disturbing because soft drinks are so acidic, that they are known to eat through metal. In fact, a study in 1993 showed that rats fed soda from aluminum cans had "significantly higher" levels of aluminum in their blood, liver and bones, when compared to rats fed soda from a glass bottle.
The same study found "a 69% higher bone aluminum concentration and 16% lower femur weight in rats fed aluminum canned soft drinks" when compared to rats given distilled water. The reduced femur (large leg bone) weight is likely connected to the acidic nature of soft drinks, because acids in the body contribute to bone loss. It's also interesting that in soil, aluminum is far more toxic in acidic, rather than alkaline, environments.
If there wasn't enough to be concerned about with genetically modified foods, one of the things they are working on is producing plants that can be grown in highly toxic environments. According to Wired Magazine, this includes growing our foods in areas that are polluted with aluminum. Normally, aluminum damages the plant's root structure, but they're finding ways to grow our food there anyway. A pro-GMO blog even ran an article with the title "GM Crops that Can Grow on Poisonous Soil."
Because genetically modified foods don't require labeling in much of the world, by consuming plants that have been altered to grow in poisonous environments, most people will never have a clue how they'll have been contributing to their own brain failure when it eventually comes about. Unfortunately, this particular type of brain failure will destroy your quality of life and often the quality of life of your loved ones, while sucking every penny dry for constant care.
While dementia is associated with aging, it's not really aging that gets people. It's the fact that older people have had a longer time to accumulate poisons, including aluminum, in their brains and bodies. In fact, a nine year old girl has been diagnosed with dementia, showing that age is far from the only factor in who is tormented by the disease.
The U.S. Alzheimer's Association is urging for increased spending to research the disease - from just over $400 million to one billion dollars. They want to study the plaque that develops in brains with dementia, while ignoring several studies that show aluminum causes this plaque to grow. According to Dr. John McDougall, MD, aluminum has been found at the center of each of these plaques. If Dr. McDougall is correct, it's likely that the body forms the plaque as a protective measure against the poison, and to keep it away from the tissue. But, as with many of the body's efforts to contain and protect us from the abundant poisons that the average person keeps taking in, these protective measures will cause problems over time too.
Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.
Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them. Here's a little from the upcoming book... In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters. A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them." Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them. In Numbers 1:1 – 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old. In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name. Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased... In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean. Kim's book Cleaning Up! is here http://www.cleaningupcleanse.com.
