Aluminium overload linked to epilepsy for the first time
UK scientific research has revealed for the first time a correlation between epilepsy and aluminium overload.
Newly developed aluminium-specific fluorescence microscopy highlighted for the first time unusually high levels of aluminium in brain tissue belonging to an individual who died following an overdose of alum salts in tap water. This was caused by an overload of aluminium salts being dropped into a water treatment plant in the Cornish town of Camelford over 30 years ago. View the science at:
