Effects of Aluminum
Acute aluminum poisoning has been associated with constipation, colicky pain, anorexia, nausea and gastrointestinal irritation, skin
problems, and lack of energy. Slower and longer-term increases in body aluminum may create muscle twitching, numbness, paralysis, and
fatty degeneration of the liver and kidney.
It is worse with reduced renal function. Aluminum may reduce the absorption of selenium and phosphorus from the gastrointestinal tract.
The loss of bone matrix from aluminum toxicity can lead to osteomalacia, a softening of the bone. Skin rashes have occurred with local
irritation from aluminum antiperspirants.
Aluminum toxicity has been implicated in the brain aging disorders. Alzheimer's disease and parkinsonism have both become more prevalent
as the incidence of aluminum toxicity has increased. Areas with high amounts of aluminum in the drinking water are showing an increase in
the incidence of Alzheimer's disease (alum and aluminum sulfate are used to treat water in many cities). Although increased aluminum has
been measured in the brain and other body tissues in Alzheimer's diseases, other factors may be contributing as well. There seems to be a
weakening of the blood-brain barrier in Alzheimer's disease, and this may allow a variety of brain toxins to reach the central nervous
system. What is causing this breakdown of the barrier between the brain and the rest of the body is not yet clear. It is also important
to examine aluminum toxicity in children with hyperactivity and learning disorders, as it has been implicated in these problems.
