Recently two studies in China showed a drop in IQ of children exposed to fluoride in the water supply of between 5 and 19 points.

Several Chinese studies have reported from places of naturally high fluoride concentration, and in coal mining areas. The news is not good. The Leading Edge Research Group has published those paper abstracts on the Internet.
Aluminium and Alzheimer’s disease
High Aluminium concentrations have been found in the brains of Alzheimer’s victims, and the appearance of Alzheimer’s has coincided with the introduction of Aluminium cookware.
Also, “In January 1987, experiments performed at the Medical Research Endocrinology Dept., Newcastle upon Tyne, England, and the Physics Dept of the Univ. of Ruhana, Sri Lanka, showed that fluoridated water at 1 PPM, when used in cooking in Aluminium cookware, concentrated the Aluminium up to 600 PPM, whereas water without fluoride did not.” (Science News (131:73)).
That research was also confirmed in America when the research results in England and Sri Lanka were investigated. A test was performed on Antigo Wisconsin water.
Antigo had been fluoridated for 33 years. The water was examined by a certified Wisconsin laboratory, and showed that when used in cooking with Aluminium cookware, it concentrated the Aluminium by 833 times, and increased the fluoride content by 100%.
That made that water's Aluminium content 75 times higher than the maximum allowed by the WHO. That information is taken from a paper by Isabel Jansen, R.N.

To pursue the Alzheimer's-Aluminium connection further, one place to start is the letter and references of Dr. William Grant's letter to the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, p. 92, in the June 1999 issue.
