Study Reveals How Aluminium Promotes Cancer Growth

Hayden’s Note towards end of article

We are all unwillingly exposed to a range of cancer-causing chemicals and substances every day. One substance that the globalists and government don’t want you know about that could be causing you considerable harm and health problems is aluminium.

The fact is most people are exposed to aluminium on a daily basis. Very little is publicized about the risks and dangers of being exposed to aluminium, and most of us are unaware of how many common products use aluminium as a medium of storage or control.

New research published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology has revealed that long-term exposure of MCF-10A human mammary epithelial cells to aluminium results in anchorage-independent growth, a key hallmark of cultured tumour cells and of cells on the way to malignant transformation. This study also found that shorter (7 days) exposure to aluminium results in diminished cell numbers owing to cellular senescence.

A commonly used household product that contains aluminium is deodorant (antiperspirants). The aluminium contaminant found in most antiperspirants is Aluminium Chlorohydrate. A 1990 study discovered an association between exposure to aluminium and long-term use of antiperspirants and Alzheimer’s disease. Observations made indicated a trend toward a higher risk with increasing frequency of use. [1]

Due to the ease of Aluminium being absorbed through the skin in the daily application of antiperspirants containing high concentrations of aluminium, this type of exposure can increase the risks of being exposed to Aluminium Chlorohydrate well above what would be considered normal.

The effect of aluminium on cellular proliferation and cellular senescence is strikingly similar to that of activated oncogenes, which increases DSBs and cellular senescence by inducing proliferation stress when transfected into normal cells. The study found this effect surprising for aluminium, present in antiperspirants at high concentrations because, presumably, it is considered harmless for the breast area. In contrast to gallium and indium which belong to the same group as aluminium in the Mendeleev Table, they did not induce anchorage-independent growth in MCF-10A cells, showing that the effects reported in this study are specific for aluminium. [2]

Although most of us are exposed to aluminium at home, many are exposed to aluminium during the production of aluminium products. Aluminium production and metalworking industries have shown consistent elevated risks for pancreatic cancer [3]. In Canada, the mortality of a large group of men employed in aluminium production using the Söderberg process was examined between 1950 and 1977, and compared with the pertinent rates for the Province of Quebec. Workers exposed to condensed pitch volatiles exhibited significantly increased mortality from all cancers (304 observed, 246.6 expected), and from esophageal and stomach cancer (50 observed, 32.8 expected), lung cancer (101 observed, 70.7 expected) and other malignancies (60 observed, 45.3 expected) [4]. 

Other Products That Contain Aluminium

The number of products that contain aluminium is unbelievable. The globalists and the government don’t want you to know what products contain aluminium. So why are the government and the globalists not advising you, the consumer, of the risks of using products that contain aluminium? The only logical reasons I can think of would be because many of the globalists have vested interests in organisations that produce profitable products that contain aluminium, and the government is reaping millions of dollars in tax from the purchase of products that contain aluminium.  The following is a list of household products that the globalists and the government don’t want you to know that contain aluminium.

  • Antiperspirants
  • Antacids
  • Many body lotions and creams
  • Most cosmetics
  • Shampoos and conditioners
  • Soaps
  • Suntan lotions
  • Lip Balm
  • Processed cheese
  • Baking powder
  • Cake mix
  • Frozen dough
  • Pancake mix
  • Self-raising flour
  • Pickled vegetables.

Also, the following food additives contain aluminium compounds. They are E173, E520, E521, E523 E541, E545, E554, E555 E556 and E559.

Hayden’s Note:

I might mention that I have moved almost exclusively to cast iron skillets and pans in order to avoid aluminum and many other chemicals used in “non-stick” cookware.

The real problem is NOT the digestion of aluminum, per say, as it exists in nature all around us.  The issue is the digestion and absorption of synthetic or highly processed aluminum and other metals, not found in nature.  Many fruits and vegetables have metals and minerals in healthy amounts that the body can handle and process to its benefit.

The aluminum added to the soil from Dow Chemical, large farm run-off, beauty products, and other contaminant sources is not a healthy, natural form.  At the risk of sounding like a tree-hugger, I will say that we must protect our soil, our local gardens, and most importantly, our bodies.

Just because something is beneficial or convenient in one regard, does not mean it is healthy for us.

Aluminium salts are also found in many common medicines.

  • Antacids
  • Anti-diarrhea products
  • Anti-hemorrhoid preparations.
  • Vaccines

Please note, if your doctor has prescribed the above three medicines, please do not discontinue using them. Speak to your doctor at your next appointment and ask if there are any suitable alternatives. 

Other Risks

The risk of developing breast cancer from excessive use of aluminium is also evident. A study published in 2003 by the European Journal of Cancer Prevention found a correlation…. Read more » (at Activist Post)
