Falling Sperm Count May Be Due To Toxic Aluminium
PRESS RELEASE: September 2017
Could recent finding “Sperm count drop could make humans extinct” from BBC News, 25 July 2017 (view article here), by 60% could actually be attributed in one way to human exposure to aluminium, a toxic metal that can be found in things we consumed and used every day?
In two latest publications, “How Bad is Aluminum Exposure to Reproductive Parameters in Rats?” at Biological Trace Element Research 8 September 2017 (view paper here) and “Aluminum Exposure for 60 days at Human Dietary Levels Impairs Spermatogenesis and Sperm Quality in Rats” at Reproductive Toxicology 17 August 2017 (view paper here).
The authors concluded that lab rats fed aluminum-treated water even at low doses had impaired spermatogenesis and sperm quality and testicular inflammation. The data demonstrated that 60 day sub-chronic exposure to low doses of aluminum in drinking water, which reflect human dietary aluminium intake, reaches a threshold sufficient to promote male reproductive dysfunction.
These findings confirmed with those of another team of French and British researchers who found the sperm of men seeking infertility treatment were loaded with aluminium (view article here).
This might be an underlying reason for the sudden spike in infertility that affects one in five couples today. It is very prudent for the public to reduce their exposure to this toxin, aluminium by minimizing the consumption and usage of this ubiquitous toxic metal. Below list of our everyday exposure to aluminium.
Another very important and effective step to reduce aluminum from the body is to simply drink a silicon rich natural mineral water like SPRITZER daily. A clinical trial by Keele University scientists have found that drinking a liter a day of silicon-rich mineral water is an effective and non-invasive way to remove aluminum from the body (view Keele Press Release here and view paper here).
