Toxic metals are considered major environmental pollutants. Following our study of a case of multiple sclerosis (MS) improvement due to removal of aluminium (Al) and other toxic metals, we have examined the possible relationship between Al intoxication and ND. A rigorous survey of the primary literature further shows that evidence for pre, perinatal and postnatal aluminum neurotoxicity is well established [65-71], even at very low doses of aluminum.
Aluminum (Al) is the third most abundant element in the earth's crust but is not an essential trace metal for mammals. However the concentrations in the body are sufficient to modify the activity levels of several key enzymes and second messenger pathways. Aluminum involvement in neurotoxicity; Contact allergy to aluminium induced by commonly used pediatric vaccines; Aluminum hydroxide injections lead to motor deficits and motor neuron degeneration; Administration of aluminum to neonatal mice in vaccine relevant amounts is associated with long term neurological outcomes Author information: (1)The Birchall Centre, Lennard-Jones Laboratories, Keele University, Staffordshire, UK.
