Prof. Christopher Exeley, Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at Keele University, has discovered that in the autistic people he studied of around 13, 14, and 15 years of age that “there (was) more aluminium than seen in any other circumstance” (detected in their bodies).
Professor Exeley states that his research career (1984-present) has focused upon an intriguing paradox; “How come the third most abundant element of the Earth’s crust (aluminium) is non-essential and largely inimical to life?”
“I am also fascinated by the element silicon in relation to living things which, as the second most abundant element of the Earth’s crust, is also almost devoid of biological function.
One possible function of silicon is to keep aluminium out of biology (biota) and this forms a large part of the research in our group. We are also interested in biological silicification.”
Toxic aluminium found in alarmingly high amounts in the autistic brain.
“This is the first time in any human brain tissue we have seen this, this is a standout and unique observation in autism. For myself, it very much implicates aluminium in the ethology of autism. That doesn’t mean aluminium causes it, but it means it’s almost certainly playing a role in the disease.”
“When we looked at people’s brains with a diagnosis of autism, we found something that we have never seen yet in any other set of human brains. We found that the majority of aluminium was actually inside cells; intra-cellular. Some of it was inside neurons, but actually the majority of it was inside non-neuronal cell populations.”
“So we found that these cells were heavily loaded with aluminium. We also found evidence that cells in the lymph and in the blood were passing into the brain. So they were carrying with them a cargo of aluminium from the body into the brain.”
Most shockingly, this urgently needed study was not funded by any government, but by non-governmental philanthropy.
Autism, which is one of the major illnesses of our time, is not being actively studied in mainstream science.
Exeley stated in the interview that “no government funded this research, it came because of philanthropy, it came because of individuals who wanted to know answers and were prepared to use their own money.”
“We pay our government, and our government should really be using our money to fund this type of research.”
They key difference to highlight is that when we ingest aluminium orally, it is subjected to our digestive tracts; and gets excreted rather than absorbed — as aluminium has no role in the human body.
When it is injected, aluminium bypasses our bodies’ natural defenses, and lodges itself in tissues throughout the body, most notably the brain; which is a highly absorbent, 60% fat organ that sees high bloodflow compared to other areas of the body.
This means lots of resources are being transferred through the brain all the time, a blood-brain barrier is a natural way of keeping out unwanted substances and absorbing useful resources like oxygen, it is highly likely that an intravenous injection of toxic substances like aluminium may breach the blood-brain barrier and implicate toxicity.
This distinction is of toxicological significance — and implicates aluminium adjuvants in intravenously applied vaccines as something of serious concern.
Getting aluminium out of the body.
Silica has been found to reduce aluminum levels drastically in the body. It does this by binding with its molecules and extracting them out of brain cells and ultimately out of the body through urine and other means.
Ground-breaking research done by Dr. Exeley found that water high in silicic acid (oxygenated silica) had a positive effect on autistic children. Exeley has found that aluminum levels were lower in the children by 50 to 70 percent who drank this kind of water.
He then did the same study with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) patients. After 13 weeks of drinking high-silica water, the same results were achieved. In the AD patients, eight out of fifteen no longer showed neurological deterioration and three showed “substantial cognitive increase.”
Dr. Exeley used Spritzer (a Malaysian bottled water) for the study, but other waters that contain high amounts of silica include Volvic and Fiji (Fiji comes in a BPA-free bottle). His suggested protocol for helping to remove aluminum from the brain is to consume 1.5 liters of high-silicic water for at least 5 days. He suggests drinking the entire 1.5 liters within an hour for the best results. Higher aluminum toxicity levels may require higher amount of water.
Diatomaceous earth (DE) is another great source of silica since it is made up mostly of the substance. Diatomaceous earth is actually millions of tiny, fossilized aquatic microorganism called “diatoms” that are ground up into a fine, white powder. Besides aluminum detoxification, DE also chelates other heavy metals, helps with GI health, and can give you more energy.
In addition to high-silicic acid waters and DE, cucumbers, bananas, bentonite clay, and horsetail herb also contain high amounts of silica.
Add at least one of the following nutritional substances to your diet every day. All of these not only have the ability to detox the body from heavy metals, but are also neuroprotectants and immune system boosters:
- Cold pressed unrefined organic coconut oil
- Chia and flaxseed
- Milk thistle
- Vitamin C (and foods rich in this vitamin)
- Spirulina and chlorella
- Foods such as garlic, cilantro, and parsley that can help eliminate heavy metals such as aluminum and mercury from your body
- Fresh, filtered water (and plenty of it!)
- Carbon 60, may chelate metals in the safest way currently known.
- The Andy Cutler Protocol, which is also a safer way of chelating metals from the brain and body.
