Rare form of Alzheimer's disease found in Camelford resident

torial by Professor Daniel Perl of Mount Sinai School of Medicine, points out that the association between an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and exposure to aluminium is somewhat controversial, largely because there are few epidemiological data to support the theory.

Relatively little is known about the exact contribution of environmental factors to the development of Alzheimer's disease, he says, and a single case does not clarify that position.

"However," he writes, "if additional similar cases were to appear among the 20,000 exposed individuals then the implications of this incident would become extremely important. Only time will tell."

He continues: "At the very least, increased efforts towards surveillance of individuals exposed in Camelford is certainly warranted."
