We are living in the ‘aluminum age.’ Human exposure to aluminum is unavoidable and, possibly, inestimable. Aluminum’s free metal cation, Alaq(3+), is exceptionally physiologically reactive, while biological aluminum is non-essential and possibly toxic in higher doses.
What is Aluminum?
Aluminum is a silvery-white, lightweight metal. It is the most prevalent metal in the earth’s crust and is found naturally in soil, water, and air. Aluminum can be eaten, absorbed via the skin, or breathed (especially in the case of factory workers who breathe fumes or dust with aluminum).
Aluminum poisoning occurs when a person consumes or breathes excessive quantities of aluminum into their body.
Exposure to aluminum is typically not hazardous, but high amounts of exposure can cause significant health issues. If you believe you have been exposed to excessive quantities of aluminum, see your doctor.
Possible Dangers of Exposure to High Levels of Aluminum
Previous research has connected regular exposure to high amounts of aluminum to neurotoxicity (adverse health effects on the central or peripheral nervous system or both), Alzheimer’s disease, and breast cancer, and many more.
So, what are the possible chronic effects of long-term aluminum exposure?
1. Alzheimer’s Disease
Aluminum salts are a crucial component of several commonly used antiperspirant products. The use of such antiperspirants has been related to systemic aluminum buildup and an elevated risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
2. Breast Cancer
Because underarm antiperspirants and deodorants are administered so close to the breast, they can raise your chance of developing breast cancer. Aluminum, for example, is known to accumulate in breast tissue. According to research, personal care products contribute to the body’s aluminum load, and recent evidence has connected aluminum-based antiperspirants to breast cancer.
3. Parkinson’s Disease
Occupational aluminum exposure appears to be a major risk factor for Parkinson’s disease, according to scientific studies. Metal levels have also been shown to be elevated in the midbrains of Parkinson’s disease patients.
4. Bone Disorders
The intestines absorb aluminum and are promptly transferred into bone, interfering with mineralization and bone cell development and function. Its toxicity causes or worsens painful types of renal osteodystrophy, most notably adynamic bone disease, osteomalacia, and other forms of the illness. Read this scientific paper on the chronic effects of aluminum on bone formation.
5. Multiple Sclerosis
Most studies agree that Multiple Sclerosis is likely to entail both hereditary and environmental variables acting either alone or in combination in diverse disease manifestations. Human exposure to aluminum has been recognized as a potential factor in MS.
How Can You Reduce Your Aluminum Exposure?
Consumers have control over their aluminum exposure. Those who want to minimize their aluminum intake should avoid using aluminum-containing antiperspirants, toothpaste, and other household products.
When it comes to food, the BfR advocates a diverse diet and changing goods and brands that promote organic ways of cultivation. This can help to reduce the danger of long-term excessive aluminum intake caused by aluminum-contaminated food items. Several technologies like heavy metal detoxification sprays chelate and remove toxic metals from your body naturally.
Heavy aluminum exposure can result in several adverse side effects. It can be fatal if left untreated. For this reason, we advocate recognizing your daily exposure and working actively to remove these harmful metals from your body.
