Aluminum Antacid


Presentation

  • The present invention is concerned with an antacid material based on magnesium aluminium hydroxide and with the preparation thereof.[google.ch]

  • Based on the present knowledge, it should therefore be concluded that antacids are of little, if any, therapeutic value in GERD.[hon.ch]
Epilepsy
  • Aluminum poisoning can lead to central nervous system (CNS) damage, like memory impairments, autism, epilepsy, mental retardation and dementia. Research shows that just 4 ppm of aluminum can cause the blood to coagulate.[naturalnews.com]
