Aluminum factory....should i be worried?
« on: December 29, 2007, 06:56:32 AM »
DH works at an aluminum factory and has for 13 years. I worry sometimes that after years of breathing in this stuff he may get alzheimer's (spell) and i wonder if i should be trying to make him take something. He is on the superdad vitamins as of Christmas day and i have heard that eating an apple everyday will help take out heavy metals. I don't know if that's true or not. Will the superdads help him or should i try to get him to do something else with them?

You may want to begin incorporating mustard greens (raw) into the diet. I'm not sure whether or not it would have the same effect on the human body, but it would be worth a shot as mustard plants (Brassica juncea) are used for Phytoremediation.

This plant is used to remove heavy metals from the soil in hazardous waste sites because it has a higher tolerance for these substances and stores the heavy metals in its cells. The plant is then harvested and disposed of properly. This method is easier and less expensive than traditional methods for the removal of heavy metals.It also prevents erosion of soil from these sites preventing further contamination.

Here's another article on how it is used for soil remediation:

I would think it's worth a try anyway.
