Pollution particles are being discovered inside samples of brain tissue. Particles of iron oxide could contribute to diseases like Alzheimer's although evidence is lacking. Wheaties, the cereal, was "iron fortified" with iron particles. You could take a magnet and literally magnetize the iron fillings out of the cereal.
Earlier this year, the World Health Organization warned that air pollution was leading to over 3 million premature deaths per year.
Nanoscale particles of magnetite are believed to be small enough to pass from the nose into the olfactory bulb and then via the nervous system into the frontal cortex of the brain. Magnetite is one of the main oxidates of iron. Iron is very reactive so it is no surprise that it would cause some damage to the brain. Welders, beware. You must wear protective respirators.
These particles could be an important risk factor for conditions such as Alzheimer's. They have been found in the middle of plaques that accumulate in the brain which could suggest they contribute to the plaque formation itself.
Although the causes of dementia and Alzheimer's are currently unknown this provides a new step in the direction of finding out the cause.
Another thing to watch out for in protecting yourself from dementia and Alzheimer's is aluminum which is found in antacids, cosmetics, sunscreen, antiperspirant deodorants and vaccinations.
We end up with a "toxic load" or total body burden that knocks out our ability to cope biochemically. It kills neurons in the brain.
Early and progressive aggressive Alzheimer's is linked to environmental exposures to aluminum. Read labels and avoid known sources of Aluminum. Teach your children to "kick the can" and get rid of aluminum.
