Description

Evidence indicates that Alzheimer's disease and aluminum toxicity are two different disease processes with distinct clinical, microscopic, and neurochemical features. There is at present no evidence to substantiate that Alzheimer's disease is induced by aluminum toxicity. Thus, physicians have no reason to recommend that patients change aluminum cookware or avoid reasonable exposure to aluminum-containing compounds.
