Evidently Alzheimer's Disease came along after people started using aluminum cookware. Isabel Jansen, R.N., wrote of a simple experiment regarding the use of aluminum pots, where it's easily proven that the aluminum and the fluoride content in water, both increase dramatically.

Fluoridated water activates dormant aluminum

"In January 1987, experiments performed at the Medical Research Endocrinology Dept., Newcastle upon Tyne, England, and the Physics Dept of the Univ. of Ruhana, Sri Lanka, showed that fluoridated water at 1 ppm, when used in cooking in aluminum cookware, concentrated the aluminum up to 600 ppm, whereas water without fluoride did not. (Science news 131:73)

They suggested that because of the known fact that aluminum is neuro-toxic and is in abnormally high concentrations in the brain of Alzheimers and other neurological disease victims, including AIDS, that these findings raise questions about adding fluoride to the water supply of communities to reduce tooth decay....

Because of these findings, a test was made of Antigo, Wisconsin water which has been fluoridated for 33 years. The water was examined by a certified Wisconsin laboratory, and showed that when it was used in cooking in aluminum cookware, it concentrated the aluminum by 833 times and increased the fluoride content by 100%.

The maximum allowed aluminum content of water is set by the World Health Organization at 200 micrograms per liter. This makes Antigo water, when cooked in aluminum, 75 times over the maximum. No test was made of distilled water, as the Antigo Water Dept. does not dispense distilled water.

Antigo water pipes are also encrusted with (calcified) fluoride from 26 to 3,100 ppm. This latter was analyzed and diagnosed by the Wisconsin Dept of Hygiene as being aluminum fluoride.

Regardless of which findings are true, to chance exchanging a hole in a tooth—which can be repaired at a nominal fee—for dementia (organic brain disorder) in later years, for which there is no remedy at any price, hardly seems to be a good bargain.

Therefore, it would seem imperative that other communities test their water in the same manner to see if it produces the same results, as tests may vary depending on the mineral variations of the water (and the type of aluminum cookware). This simple test can be done by anyone, with the help of a laboratory to do the analysis."

You might not be aware that many water treatment facilities commonly use quantities of aluminum (alum) as a standard procedure, for removing sediment when treating the drinking water supply just prior to fluoridation.
