Lots of claims are made about various risk and protective factors for conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Some of these have scientific merit and some of these don’t but, because a lot of them are discussed in the media, it makes it really hard to unpack what is a genuine protective or risk factor and what isn’t. Let’s briefly discuss some of the factors that appear to be more hype than hope.

人们做出了许多关于诸如阿尔茨海默病的病症的各种风险和保护因素的声明。有些具有科学价值,而有些没有,由于它们中的很多在媒体上被讨论过,的确很难揭示哪些是真正的保护或风险因素,而哪些不是。让我们简要讨论一些似乎炒作嫌疑比比希望更大的因素。



Aluminium is a common metal found in the earth’s crust, in the food we eat and in the water we drink. It has various uses from building cars, trains and other vehicles, right through to more domestic uses, such as pots and pans, cutlery. It’s even used for some cosmetics, such as anti-perspirant deodorant. During the ‘60s and ‘70s, there was a lot of concern that exposure to aluminium might increase a person’s risk of developing dementia. Since then, there have been various studies looking at the different ways in which people are exposed to aluminium and whether this might be associated with an increased risk of developing dementia. In one of the most cited studies in this area, researchers from the UK estimated aluminium consumption via water over a 10 year period. They looked at people who developed Alzheimer’s Disease, brain cancer and other diseases that cause dementia. Their results found no support to suggest that the consumption of aluminium via water would increase your risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease, brain cancer or any other disease.

铝是一种在地壳中,在我们吃的食物和饮用的水中发现的普通金属。它具有各种用途,从建造汽车,火车和其他车辆,甚至更多的生活用途,如锅和平底锅,餐具。它甚至用于一些化妆品,如止汗除臭剂。在60年代和70年代期间,很多人担心暴露在铝中会增加一个人患认知症的风险。从那时起,人们已经进行了观察人们接触铝的不同方式,以及这是否可能与认知症发生的风险增加有关的各种研究。在该领域最常被引用的研究之一是,英国的研究人员估计在10年内通过水的铝消耗量。他们观察发生阿尔茨海默病,脑癌和其他导致认知症的疾病的人。他们的结果发现没有证据支持通过水消耗铝会增加您患阿尔茨海默病,脑癌或任何其他疾病的风险。



Even exposed to aluminium at high levels, for example a chemical spill, has not been shown to have long term consequences for brain health. To date, there is no evidence that supports a link between every day aluminium exposure and an increased risk of developing diseases like Alzheimer’s or other diseases that cause dementia.

甚至暴露于高水平的铝,例如化学溢出,也没有表现出对脑健康的长期后果。到目前为止,没有证据支持每天的铝暴露和增加患阿尔茨海默病或其他导致认知症的疾病的风险之间的联系。
