There is unequivocal evidence that a disturbed glucose metabolism underpins all stages of metabolically induced dementia. In ALL cases of metabolically induced dementia, the brain becomes insulin resistant and cannot take up sufficient glucose to support normal activities. This results in impaired brain-function and brain-shrinkage.
Many in the scientific community are now calling this metabolically-induced dementia “Type 3 Diabetes” and I call it T3D.
Most people will tell you that there is nothing that can be done – although many sufferers are given false hope by the promise of magical pharmaceutical drugs. However, they don’t work on you – they work for the drug company’s bottom line.

A 2014 article has reignited the concerns about aluminium’s affect on your health with potential to cause neurological damage and Alzheimer’s.
Given that there do not appear to be any normal biological processes that require aluminium, consumption of aluminium should probably be strictly avoided. It is probably worth Googling and getting your own view.
A quick summary of direct sources of aluminium ‘poisoning’ include:
- Vaccines – many vaccines contain aluminium as an ‘adjuvant’ to help boost the immune response.
- Antacids – Aluminum Hydroxide, Magnesium Hydroxide are antacids used together to relieve heartburn, acid indigestion, and upset stomach [ref]
- Food additives – many processed foods contain stabilizers such as Sodium Aluminium Phosphate and/or Sodium Aluminium Sulphate. Salt may contain Sodium Aluminosilicate. [ref1, ref2] – Cheeses and baked goods appear particularly bad.
- Public water supplies. As well as a small amount of aluminium from natural sources, Aluminium Sulfate (alum) may be added to drinking water to ‘clarify’ or coagulate solids.
Indirect sources include skin-care products, moisturizers, face powders, deodorants, anti-antiperspirants and anti-fungal treatments, some ear drops [ref].
As if you need another reason to reduce carbohydrate consumption. As you read, remember that nearly all carbs are converted to glucose.
