New research links aluminum to breast cancer

(NaturalNews) Recent studies point to a strong link between aluminum and breast cancer. The correlation between aluminum and brain damage, including Alzheimer's disease, has been established by extensive research and is reason enough to avoid aluminum exposure. Recent studies find a strong connection between aluminum levels and breast cancer, giving additional motivation to avoid this toxin. Aluminum is found in cosmetics, foods, cookware and vaccines.

Research studies linking aluminum and breast cancer

Two recent studies have linked aluminum to breast cancer. A study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry in July 2013 found that breast cancer patients had significantly higher levels of aluminum in their nipple aspirate fluids when compared to a control group of healthy women without breast cancer. The study compared 19 breast cancer patients with 16 healthy women in a control group. This study reinforces the findings of a 2011 study published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology which also found higher levels of aluminum in the fluids of breast cancer patients compared to healthy women.

Another recent study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry found that aluminum can increase the spread of breast cancer cells. Because the malignancy or spread of cancer is correlated with increased mortality, this finding is highly significant.

Common sources of aluminum

Aluminum is found in food items, cosmetic products and vaccines. Aluminum cookware is another common source. There is more aluminum in the environment today than ever before in human history. While there has always been aluminum in the environment, the amount available for absorption into the human body is at an all time high.

What to avoid

Foods that contain aluminum include processed cheese, table salt, baking powder, bleached flour, cake mixes, prepared dough and baby formula. Medicines that contain aluminum include antacids, buffered aspirin and painkillers.

The cosmetic and personal care product industries are unregulated for harmful ingredients and many contain aluminum powder, which the Environmental Working Group lists as having high health concerns as a neurotoxin. Aluminum powder is found in 1,718 products listed in the EWG database. The EWG provides an independent database with ratings of safety for personal care products based on toxicity of ingredients. The products found to contain toxic aluminum include eye liner, eye shadow, mascara, lip gloss, nail polish, hair spray, deodorant and hair color.

Aluminum pans used for cooking have been shown to leach harmful aluminum into the food items that are cooked in them, so these should be eliminated whenever possible.

Almost all vaccines contain the heavy metal aluminum hydroxide in them, which is likewise considered to be a dangerous neurotoxin. Pediatrician Bob Sears has written extensively about the dangers of aluminum to the brain and the lack of research to show safety of aluminum content in vaccines. Vactruth.com is a helpful website that provides a comprehensive listing of the many toxins, including aluminum hydroxide, found in vaccines. The website also provides information on the health dangers associated with vaccines, which have never been proven to be safe or effective in the prevention of diseases.


Research continues to reinforce the need to avoid aluminum whenever possible. Limiting toxins such as aluminum in one's environment can reduce the likelihood of cancer and brain damage. Primary sources of aluminum include processed foods, personal care products and cosmetics, cookware and vaccines. Individual vigilance and responsibility will be required to avoid this powerful toxin, because regulatory agencies do not protect against aluminum in food, medicine, cookware, personal care products or vaccines.
