Autism Findings

Increased aluminum levels in the brain are indicated in autism. Why?

My understanding of simple cell replication (now there’s an oxymoronical statement) is this – when a cell replicates itself it looks around for all of the nutritional elements necessary for the chemical/biological creation of the new cell. If there is a deficiency in any particular necessary nutrient, for example Boron, then it doesn’t stop the replication until sufficient Boron is ingested by the host (that’s us). Instead, it looks for an element in the periodic table that has the same valence.

In the case of Boron, Aluminum has the same valence, part of the Group 13 elements.

Group 13

Thus, Aluminum can be incorporated into the cellular structure if enough Boron is not present.

A study of hair trace elements content in children suffering from autism spectrum disorder has shown…wait for it…that autistic children had 42% less Boron present than the control group of non-autistic children.

Add to that this finding: “Cervical cancer is the second most frequent cancer in women worldwide, yet in Turkey it ranks only ninth, which is 2 to 5 times lower than in Europe and North America.101 Although the reasons for this difference surely involve a combination of factors, including sociocultural differences, lack of population-based screening programs, or a lower human papillomavirus (HPV) prevalence rate in Turkey, it has been suggested that the low incidence of cervical cancer in Turkey correlates with its boron-rich soil.102 HPVs are the main cause of cervical cancer. HPV-16 and HPV-18 cause approximately 95% of all cervical cancers, and boron interferes in the life cycle of HPV.”

So, now we find Boron not only is essential in reducing Aluminum uptake in the body (and brain), but, it is important in the immunological response to viruses, which has been shown to be critically important in autism.

Double whammy…if you are deficient in Boron. Take your minerals everyone!
