Aluminum and mercury are two of the most prevalent heavy metals to which humans are exposed, whether via food, water, occupational and environmental exposures or from medical-dental products such as vaccines and amalgam fillings. These exposures are a particular concern during critical neurodevelopmental stages.
Given that neurotoxicity is already a major concern for aluminum and mercury when considered on their own, what happens when we’re exposure to both together? Toxicologists have known for a long time that “co-exposure to multiple metals can result in increased neurotoxicity compared to single-metal exposure, in particular during early life.” Government regulators are also well aware of these facts, so why are no alarm bells ringing?
