Dear Dr. Knox. What a ridiculous statement, coming from a presumably intelligent person with a scientific education it is trebly so.

I'm surprised that academically versed individuals turn to Wikipedia as an authoritative source of information.

Here is a link from the Alzheimer's Association disposing of the link to Aluminium and aluminium Hydroxide:

Aluminium & Alzheimers

And another from the Alzheimer Society - Canada.

"In summary

At this point, there is no convincing evidence that aluminum increases a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease."

I am sure the intent is based upon sound concern but there is a point where it become scaremongering.

Warnings should be back up by verifiable and academically sound medical evidence not Wikipedia where even my teenage son can post to.

Good info Peter thanks for your input. Lets say the the warning was 100% spot on and there was a problem with aluminum hydroxide. It has already been bypassed by the ACE Cell design. You can read more about it here.

What is aluminium hydroxide?

Aluminium hydroxide is, among other things an antacid.

Aluminium hydroxide is used to treat symptoms of increased stomach acid, such as heartburn, upset stomach, sour stomach, or acid indigestion.

Aluminium hydroxide is also used to reduce phosphate levels in the blood of people with certain kidney conditions.

Other uses:

A flame retardant and smoke suppressant filler in plastics like: cables, rubber products and carpet backing.

A raw material for fertilizers, and fibre cement board products.

An extender and bodying agent in paper, solvent- and water-borne paints, UV curable coatings, inks, and adhesives.

A polishing and cleansing agent, mould wash and separating agent.

A filler of cast polymer products such as onyx and solid surfaces.

As you can see Aluminium Hydroxide is a most useful substance and is considered safe in all these applications.

The above Warning is I am sure well intended but a little misleading.

Kind regards,

Dr. Knox -- Thank you for your insight. 

As I read the reference (about aluminum hydroxide) posted by gabet123, I noted the following from the Wikipedia page:  "In the 1960s and 1970s it was speculated that aluminium was related to various neurological disorders including Alzheimer's disease.[19][20] Since then, multiple epidemiological studies have found no connection between exposure to aluminium and neurological disorders.[21][22][23]

Also, from the Wikipedia reference, "aluminium hydroxide is used as an antacid. Brand names include Alu-Cap, Aludrox, Gaviscon or Pepsamar. It reacts with excess acid in the stomach, reducing the acidity of the stomach content,[14] which may relieve the symptoms of ulcers, heartburn or dyspepsia.  Because of the use of aluminum hydroxide in pharmaceutical products, and because of FDA oversight, it seems that your warning may not be well known in the pharmaceutical industry.

Clearly, your warning deserves more attention.  Can you cite biochemistry references to provide more information regarding your warning?

Kind regards, Howard

Dr Knox,

Thanks for your input on the health issues associated with aluminum hydroxide here is a Wikipedia page with more info on the material for those that are interested.
