Sorry, Bad news.
While there is evidence that aluminum is toxic, and can cause Dementia,
Personality Changes,
and Seizures (Gross& Nagy 1992) the theories regarding excessive
aluminum amounts in the brain
have been discredited in part because regions with increased
concentrations of aluminum in the drinking
water have not had increased levels of Alzheimer's, and laboratory
experiments with al injections in animals proved contradictory. (Kendall
& Hammen, 1995)
