Copper pipes and Alzheimer's disease

Atualizado: Ago 5


About 11% of people over age 65 are suffering from dementia. And for people over 85, the figure grows to a staggering 32%. Today we’ll look at an intriguing theory that may go a long way toward explaining the epidemic.

.

After World War II, use of copper pipes in home construction took off in developed countries. It’s estimated that 90% of US homes now have pipes made from copper. And when you drink water from copper pipes, you ingest a bit of the metal with each sip.

.

“Organic” copper is the kind you get from the food you eat and you NEED it to function properly. However, there’s also “inorganic” copper – copper in its elemental form, not bound to anything else. When inorganic copper is in your bloodstream, it’s called “free copper.” And it’s NOT good.

.

People with Alzheimer’s disease have a much higher level of free copper. The higher the level, the worse their cognitive decline.

.

Where does inorganic copper come from?

.

It comes mainly from two sources. One is drinking water that flows through copper pipes.

.

The results of a six-year, 3,718-person study done in a Chicago community were downright shocking.

.

The study participants who consumed higher amounts of inorganic copper and who also ate higher amounts of saturated and trans fats suffered a much faster cognitive decline. And the more copper they consumed, the faster their brain functioning went downhill.

.

Our recommendation: if you drink water from your faucet and don’t know if you have copper pipes, you can get your water tested. Or you can just switch to filtered water, which is what I recommend.

.

Stay safe.
