neurotoxins

Neurotoxins in meat and fish may be contributing to brain damage (including memory loss and dementia) as well as muscle tremors. Fetuses, infants, and children are particularly at risk, but adults should also avoid foods containing mercury (see also here) present in fish, other animal products, and products containing high fructose corn syrup (see comparisons to amalgam fillings and vaccines). Other potential neurotoxins include copper found in meats, arsenic found in chicken, and acrylamide found in certain fried foods such as french fries. Neurotoxins have been found in the Ayervedic supplements, spirulina, blue-green algae (but not chlorella), fish, and fish oil. Flame-retardant chemicals are also found in retail U.S meat supply. Tofu preserved with formaldehyde may also be toxic. At the same time, ginger and apple juice may be protective against Alzheimer’s disease.
