You’ve ingested it, probably had it injected into yourself and/or your children and you most certainly have cooked with it.
Aluminum. It’s such a common staple in today’s kitchen that many have probably not thought of it as part of the ever-growing list of items that potentially cause cancer. It has been said that approximately 10 to 25 percent of diseases are caused by genetics and heredity. That means that environmental, dietary and lifestyle choices can potentially be a greater factor in the causation of disease and cancer.
According to www.rawforbeauty.com:
“A concerning new study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry demonstrates clearly that exposure to aluminum can increase migratory and invasive properties of human breast cancer cells. This has extremely important implications, because mortality from breast cancer is caused by the spread of the tumor and not from the presence of the primary tumor in the breast itself. This profound difference, in fact, is why a groundbreaking new National Cancer Institute commissioned expert panel recently called for the complete reclassification of some types of non-progressive ‘breast cancer’ and ‘prostate cancer’ as essentially benign lesions – bittersweet news for the millions who were already misdiagnosed/overdiagnosed and mistreated/overtreated for ‘cancer’ over the past 30 years.”
In addition, another study in 2011, published by the Journal of Applied Toxicology, found that the “primary form” of aluminum (aluminum chloride) found in anti-perspirants was “capable of altering breast cancer cells in a way indicative of ‘neoplastic transformation,’ or, the transformation of a healthy cell into a cancerous one”.
Sadly, regulators in the United States have determined that aluminum is “perfectly safe to eat, apply topically, and inject into our bodies.” This puts the onus on the consumer to be vigilant about keeping the more ubiquitous version of aluminum out of the home and away from the body (aluminum foil, commercial anti-perspirants, canned foods, etc.) to protect themselves from the more obvious forms of exposure.
The good news? You have more control over your environment and food choices than you do your genetic and hereditary make-up. Be active in keeping out the toxins and keep your family safe!
