Bet you have heard that exposure to aluminum can cause it, right? Here is what the Alzheimer's Association has to say about it:“Myth 4: Drinking out of aluminum cans or cooking in aluminum pots and pans can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.Reality: During the 1960s and 1970s, aluminum emerged as a possible suspect in Alzheimer’s. This suspicion led to concern about exposure to aluminum through everyday sources such as pots and pans, beverage cans, antacids and antiperspirants. Since then, studies have failed to confirm any role for aluminum in causing Alzheimer’s. Experts today focus on other areas of research, and few believe that everyday sources of aluminum pose any threat.” Still worried? Don't be. If you wear your aluminum bracelet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for the rest of your lifetime, you still won't absorb as much aluminum through your dermal layers as you take in by eating a single antacid tablet.
