As for aluminium, while the link has been rumoured for years, only recently
has data been available showing a correlation with high brain levels of
aluminium and senile dementia/alzheimer's, and the legal machinery moves
slowly and laboriously.

Correlation != Causation. Is there any data that indicates that
increased aluminum intake leads to increased levels of aluminum in the
brain? Until there is hard data demonstrating this, the legal
machinery has every reason to move slowly.

(I'm not specifically advocating aluminum, I just havn't seen any
_real_ proof yet.)
