The Age of Aluminium

Based on Bert Ehgartner’s groundbreaking book Dirty Little Secret – The Aluminium Files, The Age of Aluminium is the first film to explore the metal’s little-known darker side. Through interviews with leading scientists and researchers, along with the personal stories of several individuals, the film reveals how aluminium exposure has triggered serious health consequences and environmental damage.

Long known as a neurotoxin, many scientists suspect aluminium is linked to such modern scourges as breast cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, allergies and autism. The documentary looks at how aluminium may be the “universal toxin” underlying the increase in epidemic levels of chronic illness and age-related neurological disorders.
