I attribute it to the growing popularity of craft beers and the decline of mass produced beers like Budweiser and Miller.

Typically a mass produced beer is consumed from a can. They are lighter, safer, and easier to dispose of than bottles. But the aluminum leaches into the beer and causes Alzheimer's.

With more people getting turned on to craft beers, more and more beers are being poured from a bottle and not a can. So all these beer drinkers who would have been mentally waylaid by shiatty can beers are now living longer, healthier lives due to bottled beers.

A very disturbing trend, though, is canned craft beer. Due to things like stackability, shelf life, and sheer convenience, some craft brewers are trying to can their beers rather than bottle them. This puts us right back where we started, unfortunately.

The only way canned beers can be safe is with lined cans which prevent the leaching from happening. So if you're going to reach for a can of beer, make sure it's safe and smooth.

HFCS did it.  Sure it will make you fat and diabetic, but at least you'll be able to remember you are fat and diabetic.

Alzheimers freaks me out. That's why I do everything I can to die young. Not in a suicidal way, just in a way that makes sure I check out before I forget who my loved ones are.

If I had to choose between drinking Keystone Light or suffering a long slow debilitating decline of Alzheimer's...


You know, I'd have to really think about this one.

Was the alleged link between aluminum and Alzheimer's ever substantiated? I didn't think it was.

Nobody can retire anymore. It always seemed to me that the moment an elderly person starts slowing down they went right into the home and began drooling into their pudding.

Income inequality is really just a way to save people from Alzheimer's. Remember to thank your banker.

The attempt to link them usually depended on "through the skin" when the problem was more likely inhalation through spraying.

You aren't going to absorb dangerous levels of aluminum through a roll-on, and use of sprays has plunged to almost nothing. Before CFCs and aluminum zirconium were banned, people couldn't help but inhale that stuff in large quantities daily. Even worse - people didn't bathe as much as they do today, so deodorant usage was greater back then, too.

I don't think it is a coincidence that the rate of alzheimer's has gone down as the population that used spray deodorants dies off.

No no no. The Chemtrails are to dumb us down gradually as part of an agreement with the alien lizard men to prevent us from crossing the intellectual benchmark at which their policy would necessitate destroying us before we became a threat to them.

Duh.

Aluminum is definitely found in Alzheimer's plaques. Exactly how it ends up there is still unclear, and in theory Alzheimer's could gather aluminum into brain tissue without aluminum doing anything. But that seems unlikely.

from www.alz.com (Alzheimer's Asociation website)

http://www.alz.org/alzheimers_disease_myths_about_alzheimers.asp

Myth 4: Drinking out of aluminum cans or cooking in aluminum pots and pans can lead to Alzheimer's disease.
Reality: During the 1960s and 1970s, aluminum emerged as a possible suspect in Alzheimer's. This suspicion led to concern about exposure to aluminum through everyday sources such as pots and pans, beverage cans, antacids and antiperspirants. Since then, studies have failed to confirm any role for aluminum in causing Alzheimer's. Experts today focus on other areas of research, and few believe that everyday sources of aluminum pose any threat.

I certainly wasn't saying anything about drinking or eating out of aluminum containers.

Pre-80s aerosol deodorant sprays let you breath large amounts of aluminum zinconium, which rides nicely on the CFCs that were used in those products. Breathing it in means you directly ingested it through your lungs, directly into your blood.

I'm sure Alcoa and other corporations heavily vested in the uses of aluminum threw money at lots of studies about eating and drinking from aluminum containers - nice bit of misdirection, but still doesn't disprove anything, other than the idea that you could somehow consume aluminum with that method.

Since aluminum zinconium and CFCs were both banned by the end of the 70s, ingestion through the lungs dropped off. Unfortunately, people who had been using spray deodorants for decades still had large buildups of aluminum in their brains - now that population is dying off.

You're joking, right?

The dangers of lead have been known for literally thousands of years. We just didn't know until last century how little of an amount of lead was necessary to make you a violent retarded.
