New research from scientists in the UK and France suggests that human exposure to aluminium may be a significant factor in falling sperm counts and reduced male fertility.

Fluorescence microscopy using an aluminium-specific stain confirmed the presence of aluminium in semen and showed aluminium inside individual sperm.

And the team of scientists, at the universities of Lyon and Saint-Etienne in France and Keele in the UK, found that the higher the aluminium, the lower sperm count.

The research, led by Professor Christopher Exley, a leading authority on human exposure to aluminium at Keele, and Professor Michele Cottier, a specialist in cytology and histology at Saint-Etienne, measured the aluminium content of semen from 62 donors at a French clinic.


Professor Exley said: “There has been a significant decline in male fertility, including sperm count, throughout the developed world over the past several decades and previous research has linked this to environmental factors such as endocrine disruptors.

“Human exposure to aluminium has increased significantly over the same time period and our observation of significant contamination of male semen by aluminium must implicate aluminium as a potential contributor to these changes in reproductive fertility.”

The mean aluminium content for all 62 donors was found to be very high at 339 ppb with the aluminium content of semen from several donors being in excess of 500 ppb. A statistically significant inverse relationship was found between the aluminium content of semen and the sperm count. Higher aluminium resulted in a lower sperm count.

The paper is published in the leading journal Reproductive Toxicology (www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0890623814002548).

I'm assuming that the aluminum does not have to be directly applied to the testicles in order for it to permeate the skin and enter the sperm ... aluminum deodorant plus alcohol are huge contributors to breast cancer.

Though ... Gen Y tho no doubt give the gonads a good coating with this stuff from time to time ...

however, there are many other aspects of the agenda in play - from impaired immune systems , gender bending to borg / post humanism .

Aluminum hydroxides are also used by some water authorities as a flocculant - it makes murky water clear.

Then people drink it and cook with it.

What Foods Contain Harmful Aluminum?

'' The human body does not need aluminum, but because food additives and cooking utensils '
contain aluminum, you may get exposed to this potentially harmful.''

''Because aluminum makes up a significant portion of the earth’s crust, soil and water contain aluminum,
which means that most foods contain at least trace amounts of this metal. Ingesting small amounts of
aluminum may not cause harm, but over time aluminum builds up within your body.
Some foods, like baking powder and processed cheeses, have higher than natural levels of aluminum
because they contain aluminum-based food additives.''

'' U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers the following food additives as
“GRAS – Generally Recognized as Safe”:


aluminum ammonium sulfate,
aluminum calcium silicate,
aluminum nicotinate,
aluminum potassium sulfate,
aluminum sodium sulfate,
aluminum stearate,
sodium aluminum phosphate
aluminum sulfate.

''Even if you avoid eating foods containing aluminum food additives, you could be adding aluminum
to your food without even realizing it.
Cookware manufacturers choose to use aluminum because it conducts heat effectively and uniformly,
allowing foods to cook evenly. Cooking foods, especially acidic foods like fruits, tomatoes and wine,
in pans made from aluminum can cause aluminum to leach into your food.''

To prevent this, manufacturers developed anodized aluminum, which retains the heat conductivity
properties but creates a hard surface that does not react with food. To prevent scratches that can harm the
surface and allow aluminum into your food, use only wood or plastic utensils when cooking food in these pans.''
www.livestrong.com/article/540321-what-foods-contain-harmful-aluminum/

Food Additives:
The following food additives contain aluminum compounds:
E173, E520, E521, E523 E541, E545, E554, E555 E556, E559.
Aluminum is a common food additive found in foods such as processed cheeses, table salt, baking powders,
pickles, bleached flour, prepared dough, cake mixes, non-dairy creamers, vanilla powders and some donuts
and waffles. Milk formulas for babies can contain up to four hundred times more aluminum than breast milk.''

''Medications: Antacids quite often contain aluminum trisilicate as does buffered aspirin. Antacids can contain
200 milligrams or more of elemental aluminum in a single tablet.
Certain popular antacids contain aluminum hydroxide. Aluminum is present in popular over-the-counter and
prescription medicines such as certain pain-killers and anti-diarrhea medicines.
Other products containing aluminum: Aluminum can be found in toothpastes, nasal sprays, anti-antiperspirants,
dental amalgams, cigarette filters and pesticides. Some metal cleaners contain aluminum oxide.''

Sort of related...

I had cauda equina... then, now.. I am being checked out for suspected mutliple sclerosis.. but I am in the acceptance part of all this.... I love the universe god though I don't understand it, but I know it has a logic, and I know I am a part of it. Like stars are a part of us.

I was a bodybuilder/athlete... I trained and worked to the point of stupidity.. I totally lived the work hard/play hard ethic.. sometimes putting in 40 hour work stints before sleep. And I trained with weights for an hour a day for most days over twenty years... These days if I manage an hour of tidying up it's a bonus and I am grateful! Despite the Tories best efforts to stop me eating I am still here! Make your cuts, I'll manage on one meal per day.... sod off you Etonian twats... but god bless this world and all of you.

I digress...

I recently started using megadoses of vitamin d3... now I have a damaged spine and nerves, but this stuff has made me pretty damn frisky for the first time since my problems began! I heartily recommend you try some! I've been popping about 25000IU per day... made me feel much better than I did...

So er.. yeah.. aluminium and plastics and smoking etc = bad fertility. Vitamin D3 = hello what you doing up!

Fluoride? Soft metal fillings are a zinc/mercury amalgam. Meanwhile fluoridation....
Sodium fluoride (NaF) was the first compound used and is the reference standard.[31] It is a white, odorless powder or crystal; the crystalline form is preferred if manual handling is used, as it minimizes dust.[32] It is more expensive than the other compounds, but is easily handled and is usually used by smaller utility companies.[33]
Fluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6) is the most commonly used additive for water fluoridation.[34] It is an inexpensive liquid by-product of phosphate fertilizer manufacture.[31] It comes in varying strengths, typically 23–25%; because it contains so much water, shipping can be expensive.[32] It is also known as hexafluorosilicic, hexafluosilicic, hydrofluosilicic, and silicofluoric acid.[31]
Sodium fluorosilicate (Na2SiF6) is the sodium salt of fluorosilicic acid. It is a powder or very fine crystal that is easier to ship than fluorosilicic acid. It is also known as sodium silicofluoride.[32]

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_fluoridation

Most soluble salts would use group 1 metals

according to Pfiz all science is cabbali..Kabballahis.. bollocks

But in the REAL world the periodic table is remarkably well understood.

You are thinking of the DuPont story, where fluoride is a BY PRODUCT of aluminium smelting, the extraction of metal from bauxite ore.

However you gave me an idea for a thread, which I will donate back to you if you like, entitled The Lies of Wikipedia

Starting with
Fluoridated water has fluoride at a level that is effective for preventing cavities

I suspect they put it in fertilizer (which DOES have these things in it) .. and get farmer joe to spread it on his land, of which there is no shortage of in oz. Wont mention names as dont want to INCITE anything PIVOTal.

Some probably goes into the urban drinking water also, so the corporations get peoples insides to dispose of it. :facepalm:

@Oracle .. the S/W of Australia is one of the major bauxite mining sites with 4 alumina refineries. Alcoa operates 3 and BHP Billiton 1.

These are the tailing ponds near the refinery in the heavy industrial strip south of Perth (Alcoa).



This refinery though is small as was the Alcoa prototype built in the 60s to perfect technology for much larger refineries 1 to 1.5 hours further south.

The "tailings" (highly toxic liquids) are contained in ponds which are left to evaporate. More dirt is then poured on top to cover and the process continues. The tailing mounds must rise 20m to 30m and I understand lose toxicity through evaporation and time ... though no residential population is allowed within 1.5km of the ponds.

Sounds not too far out.
I suspected they either export the most toxic stuff, and some fucking stupid and corrupt moron somewhere say Russia buys it.
Or they dig a hole somewhere in central Aus and dump it there, fill the hole and pretend they never dug a hole.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_mud

Anyway, the fertilizer would make sense, but I can't imagine they put arsenic waste in there?


PS: I found pure nonsense on english wik having your energy saving thread in mindi:
Aluminium wire was once widely used for domestic electrical wiring. Owing to corrosion-induced failures, a number of fires resulted.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminium

Total BS. The fires resulted due to bad wiring and miscalculated expansion coefficient of Al wire.
Al is a good electrical conductor even if the wire is oxidized, the oxide layer is very thin and can be neglected.

@Oracle ... the tailings just sit in situ for decades. They don't get moved anywhere. That must happen when the refinery closes down under the "make good" obligation under the State Agreement which governs the development and use of the land for refinery purposes.

These are from a much larger Alcoa refinery in S/W Australia.




From Alcoa
  As every six tonnes of bauxite makes two tonnes of alumina, and every two tonnes of alumina makes one tonne of aluminium, there is a significant generation of residue in the process of converting bauxite ore into aluminium metal. 
 
Alcoa of Australia’s residue is made up of two components of roughly equal quantity – sand and mud. Much of the sand is reused for construction of and within the residue drying areas (often called residue storage areas). The residue mud is dried in layers within our storage areas. As it dries, more mud is laid on top to form a residue stack.

Residue drying areas are ‘fields’ of what looks like mud or clay. The mud is generally not visible outside Alcoa’s operations because it’s contained within engineered embankments.  Alcoa rehabilitates the embankments which are visible to the community, and in some cases it can take many years to form an effective visual screen.

In Western Australia the low grade of the bauxite ore, compared with bauxite from other locations around the world, makes sustainable residue management an even bigger challenge here. The lower the alumina content in the ore, the larger the amount of residue produced.
 
The main challenges for Alcoa of Australia around our residue drying areas are:
 
• The size of our storage areas
• Their location in relation to neighbours
• Dust
• Visual amenity
• Community perceptions and community access to factual information about residue.
 
Alcoa of Australia has found ways that our by-products can be useful to the community.  Alcoa’s global refining research and development group, based at Kwinana in Western Australia, has designed a 'Carbon Capture' process whereby bauxite residue can be treated with waste carbon dioxide (which also locks up carbon emissions that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere).  This process neutralises the alkalinity of the residue which has opened the door for residue reuse external to Alcoa’s operations.  Research spanning over 20 years has identified a number of bauxite residue by-products. Read more.  
 
The potential for dust to be generated from the surface of the residue storage areas as they dry poses another significant challenge, and Alcoa of Australia goes beyond our environmental licence conditions in relation to dust management. Our primary form of dust control is via a comprehensive network of sprinklers over the storage areas, which keeps the surfaces moist to prevent the wind picking up fine dust particles.  Read more about our many other dust control measures.
 
Finally, there are a number of misconceptions about residue within the community which present challenges for Alcoa of Australia and highlight the importance of us making available factual information about our residue operations.  One of these misconceptions is that bauxite residue contains dangerous levels of radioactive elements. This is not true - residue does not contain levels of radioactive material that provide any cause for health concerns.

The red mud is reused though in various ways. As an ingredient for cement through to ceramic tiles.

“The fluosilicic acid brands used in artificially fluoridating Australia’s water supplies are known to be contaminated with lead, arsenic and mercury—major public health hazards for which no safe level exists” (Awofeso 2012, p. 8).

“Fluosilicic Acid is an aqueous solution of 20% H2SiF6 used for the Fluoridation of drinking water. Incitec Pivot manufactures the product in Geelong and Portland, Victoria, and distributes it nationally. Fluosilicic Acid is the most widely used fluoridation agent in Australia, and has several advantages over powdered fluoridation products, including the elimination of manual handling, dust control, and slurrification. The product is particularly suitable in mid sized to larger water treatment plants” (Incitec Pivot 2012).

“When I graduated from University, we weren’t given any information about where [fluoride] came from. We all assumed it was [pharmaceutical-grade] calcium fluoride… We’re drinking industrial-grade fluoride chemicals” (Alexander 2011, p. 7).
“I didn’t realise that we weren’t using natural fluoride, so-called natural fluoride… but we were using a common industrial waste. This industrial waste is coming mainly from the super-phosphate industry, but also recently, industrial waste from China, of which we really don’t have a good idea of the origins… it’s not a pharmaceutical grade; it’s an industrial grade. Some of the contaminants are aluminum, mercury, low levels of uranium, beryllium, cadmium; and this has quite shocked me”

“In this article we report recovery of mesoporous silica from the waste material (hexafluorosilicic acid) of phosphate fertilizer industry” (Sarawade et al. 2010).

“This is a hazardous waste – no question about it… It’s not only Hexafluorosilicic Acid, but there’s a lot of other crap… it’s got lead, and arsenic, and mercury, and radioactive isotopes… If someone buys it from them [the phosphate fertilser companies]… you take away the label “hazardous waste,” and it becomes a “product.”

And who’s going to buy this stuff from them? Our water departments!

So the water departments buy this hazardous waste; it becomes a product; and now, they put it in our drinking water” (Connett 2010).

THE Port of Melbourne has for four years allowed water contaminated with massive levels of cancer-causing arsenic to leach from one of its properties into the Maribyrnong River.

The arsenic is leaching from iron oxide used for decades to fill the banks of the lower Maribyrnong and probably the Yarra. One consultant estimated there were 70,000 cubic metres of the spent iron oxide and contaminated fill — six metres deep in some places and covering half the property — at the former Pivot site alone.

And yes, there is arsenic in fertilisers also, its not just in the fluoride that they sell to the water authorities, as well as lead and mercury among other things. They state it on their products, but the disclaimer is that its less than the allowable limits as defined by regulations etc etc.

So yes i do think they eliminate the waste in this way, and i speculate that companies do deals with eachother to deal with their wastes.

It is truly insane, the most insane part is that it goes in the water.

Heres a PDF for ICL MAP , just search the word arsenic, its in there www.iclfertilizers.com/Fertilizers/Knowledge%20Center/ICLSF%20Catalogue%20Australia.pdf

Then you might want to scroll all the way to the bottom too.

Its in other brands also, its just that they dont like admitting it on their promotional pdf's online... but when you actually buy the stuff you see whats written on it, which is required that they state it.
I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.
