Aluminum dangers – What they don’t want you to know

(Natural News) A known neurotoxin – aluminum has been linked to autism in children and Alzheimer’s disease in older adults. In fact, according to Dr. Christine Schaffner, this dangerous substance is currently the number one toxin found among her patients suffering from metals exposure – ahead of mercury and lead. Keep in mind, there is absolutely no (good) reason to have this material inside the human body.

Clinical Insights from the Sophia Health Institute

Aluminum and Glyphosate
There is growing awareness of the increasing environmental exposure of aluminum and glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup.

We have been tracking both of these toxicants in our patients and use several treatment strategies to decrease the body burden of both of these harmful substances.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff first opened our eyes to the biological impact of glyphosate. Her recent paper “Aluminum and Glyphosate Can Synergistically Induce Pineal Gland Pathology: Connection to Gut Dysbiosis and Neurological Disease” demonstrates the synergy of aluminum and glyphosate.1
