DEBUNKED: Natural News - Nanosized AL in chemtrails causes alzheimer's.

A rehash / repost of old bunk from Natural News appeared today -

http://www.naturalnews.com/041201_chemtrails_nanoparticles_degenerative_disease.html#ixzz2ajXnPMka

To paraphrase the essence of the article:

It's essentially old claims rehashed to reinforce the currently fashionable conflation of the chemtrail theory with 'geo-engineering is bad' sentiment, in the form of a tabloid style scare story.

It links the work of Russell Blaylock, who posited an increase in Altzeimers rates due to nanoparticle exposure, to the usual chemtrail conspiracy claims. A skeptical background on Blaylock can be found here.

The article assumes from it's opening paragraph that geoengineering is on-going around the world. There is no evidence for this, as this debunking thread on the matter explains, amongst many others here on Metabunk.

The post cites a very selectively referenced New York Times article as a source. This article refers to a draft study on a possible geoengineering strategy -

Nowhere are nanosized aluminium, strontium, and barium particles mentioned, yet this is the claim in the Natural News piece.

I particularly liked the contradictory language below -

I will play Devils Advocate here. There is a link between Al and Alzheimers. At present there is no causal link but there certainly is an accumulation in brain tissue. Nano particles don't have to be present just in chemtrails as they are inbiquitous in the food chain. There does appear to be an increase in Al in our food and stuff, which for me is a concern, so I don't know about been able to debunk the general claim.

I'm sure science can come up with GMOs that resists Al absorbtion. :)

Fair enough Dave, I need to edit the thread title. I'm interested in debunking the link to supposed aluminium chemtrails.

Without any evidence of ongoing spraying, there can't be any link between alzheimers and chemtrails regardless of whether Blaylock's research into the effects of aluminium are correct.

This is apparently an interview with the man -


As this is one of the evidence sources that resurfaces periodically linked with chemtrails theory, I thought it could do with a solid, single post rebuttal that's easily googled.

There is another thread on the subject of Dr Blaylock and AL chemtrails, but it was derailed fairly early on.

I have spotted on PMC/PubMed an interesting recent peer-review paper explaining the history and the science of the alleged link between Aluminum exposure and Alzheimer's disease:

Some fascinating things in there, anti-aluminum quackery and profiteering, 100 years ago.
