Abstract

Aluminum is a chemical element atomic number 13. It is white-silver, insoluble in water under normal conditions. Despite its natural abundance, aluminum has no known biology function. It is a toxic residue, aluminum sulphate having an LD50 of 6207 mg/kg body, corresponding to 500 g per 80 kg person. Extremely acute toxicity without harm to health is of interest in view of the widespread occurrence of the element in the environment and in trade. Toxicity can be tracked after deposition into the bones and the central nervous system and is particularly high in patients with renal insufficiency. In very high doses, aluminum can cause neuro toxicity associated with altered function of the blood-brain barrier.
