    Mercury is the cause of Alzheimer’s: Boyd Haley, PhD

    Posted by .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
    Tuesday, January 29, 2019 11:18 am Email this article

    Mercury is the only material ever found to cause the exact same five (5) biochemical changes seen in Alzheimer’s Disease according to Boyd Haley, PhD, former Prof. and Chairman of the Chemistry Dept. at the University of Kentucky, who has been studying mercury toxicity since 1987.

    1. Mercury causes Tubulin to fall apart which you see in Alzheimer’s.
    2. Mercury causes Neurofibrillary Tangles which you see in Alzheimer’s.
    3. Mercury causes overproduction of Beta Amyloid which you see in Alzheimer’s.
    4. Mercury causes Hyper-phosphorylation of Tau protein which you see in Alzheimer’s.
    5. Mercury causes inhibition of Creatine Kinase which you see in Alzheimer’s.

    Mercury is found in dental amalgams (mercury / silver fillings which are 50% mercury) and some vaccines, as well as being found in fish, and is released into the air from coal-fired power plants.


    Blood mercury levels 2-times higher in Alzheimer’s, 3-times higher in early-onset Alzheimer’s

    Blood mercury levels were 2-times higher in Alzheimer’s patients and were almost 3-times higher in early-onset Alzheimer’s than age-matched controls according to a 1998 study (Hock, 1998).

    Boyd Haley, PhD has been studying mercury toxicity since 1987

    Boyd Haley, PhD has a PhD in chemistry and a PhD in biochemistry.

    Boyd Haley, PhD is a former Professor and Chairman, Dept. of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky.

    Boyd Haley, PhD has been studying the toxic effects of mercury since 1987 (for 32 years).

    Boyd Haley, PhD has been studying the toxic effects of mercury from dental amalgams / mercury fillings since 2000 (for 19 years).

    Boyd Haley, PhD has lectured all over the world about mercury toxicity.

    Aluminum and Alzheimer’s: Aluminum makes mercury more toxic

    In the 1980’s, some people said that aluminum was the cause of Alzheimer’s disease because they found elevated levels of aluminum in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.

    But Boyd Haley, PhD has noted that aluminum makes mercury more toxic.

    (So it is really the mercury causing the problem.)

    Copper and Alzheimer’s: Mercury displaces copper from binding sites, leading to free copper

    Some people claim that copper is the cause of Alzheimer’s disease because they find elevated copper levels in the blood of Alzheimer’s patients.

    But Boyd Haley, PhD has noted that copper is never free in your body.

    Boyd says that free copper cannot get from your gut to your brain.

    Boyd says that copper is always attached to a protein which carries it into the brain.

    But Boyd Haley, PhD has noted that mercury displaces copper from it’s binding sites which creates free copper.

    (So again, it is mercury causing the problem.)

    Why Don’t the NIH and CDC Talk About Mercury Causing Alzheimer’s?

    The NIH and CDC would lose their credibility because, for years, they said mercury in vaccines and dental amalgams were safe, but this is not true

    Why don’t the NIH and the CDC talk about this?

    Imagine if the NIH and the CDC had to admit that mercury from dental amalgams (mercury fillings) and mercury from vaccines were the cause of Alzheimer’s disease.

    Imagine the size of the lawsuit if people knew this, that Alzheimer’s was caused by the mercury fillings in their mouths, and from the vaccines recommended by the CDC.

    Do you think that the NIH and the CDC would lose credibility?

    Yes, of course they would! Right?

    Why don’t Alzheimer’s researchers talk about this? Because drug companies would lose a lot of money of people knew mercury is the cause of Alzheimer’s!

    Why don’t Alzheimer’s researchers look into this and talk about this?

    Boyd Haley, PhD has suggested that it is because of money!

    (I’ll get to the money part shortly.)

    Boyd Haley, PhD has said that he had grants from the NIH for 27 years to study various things, including grants at the end of the 27 years, to study the possibility that mercury might be involved in Alzheimer’s disease.

    But Boyd Haley noted that once he started talking about the fact that it looked like mercury was the cause of Alzheimer’s, the NIH stopped funding his research!

    The NIH essentially said, “We’re not interested in studying this any more.”

    Does that sound like someone in search of the truth or someone trying to hide the truth?

    It sounds to me like someone trying to hide the truth! Right?

    Boyd Haley, PhD has never been invited to speak at an Alzheimer’s conference

    Boyd Haley, PhD has also said that he has never been invited to speak at an Alzheimer’s conference.

    Why not?

    Boyd Haley says that his data is dramatic.

    Boyd Haley has suggested that it is because the drug companies would lose a lot of money if people knew that mercury was the cause of Alzheimer’s!

    Their drugs would be unnecessary!

    Boyd Haley has said that drug companies have 70 drugs in development for Alzheimer’s disease, and…

    ... if Boyd Haley presented data showing that mercury was the cause of Alzheimer’s disease, and that all you had to do was get the mercury out of the body to prevent Alzheimer’s, then all these drugs would be unnecessary, and drug companies would lose a lot of money!

    So, it’s not about truth, it’s about money! Right?

    An Alzheimer’s brain is easy for anyone to see, it’s 25% smaller, and yet an Alzheimer’s brain was not identified until 1906. Why?

    An Alzheimer’s brain is 25% smaller than a normal brain

    Here is another fascinating thing that Boyd Haley, PhD has pointed out.

    Boyd Haley, PhD has said that it is very easy for anyone to identify an Alzheimer’s brain.

    An Alzheimer’s brain is 25% smaller than a normal brain.

    Autopsies common in the 1500’s, 1600’s, 1700’s and 1800’s, and yet an Alzheimer’s brain was not identified until 1906. Why?

    Boyd Haley, PhD has pointed out that autopsies were common in the 1500’s, 1600’s, 1700’s and 1800’s, and yet an Alzheimer’s brain was not identified until 1906.

    Why would that be?

    Why was an Alzheimer’s brain not identified until 1906 when it is so easy for anyone to see?

    Alzheimer’s caused by breathing mercury vapor from dental amalgams for 50 years? Dental amalgams first used in the 1830’s

    Boyd Haley, PhD has suggested that the reason that an Alzheimer’s brain was not identified until 1906 is because mercury vapor from dental amalgams (mercury fillings) is what caused Alzheimer’s...

    ... and dental amalgams (mercury fillings) were first used in the 1830’s.

    And by 1906, when an Alzheimer’s brain was first described, people with mercury fillings had been breathing mercury vapor for 50 years.

    Dental amalgams (mercury fillings) release mercury vapor every second of every day!

    Mercury fillings are releasing mercury vapor every second of every day… forever!

    Search YouTube for “Smoking Teeth” to see videos showing mercury vapor coming off of a 25-year-old mercury filling.

    Brushing your teeth with mercury fillings increases mercury vapor 10-fold

    Boyd Haley, PhD has done a study in which he found that when you brush your teeth, mercury vapor coming off of mercury fillings increases 10-fold.

    Exposing mercury fillings to hot water increases mercury vapor another 10-fold!

    Boyd Haley, PhD has also done a study in which he found that when your teeth are exposed to hot water 110°F (similar to drinking hot coffee or hot tea or hot soup or hot food), mercury vapor coming off of mercury fillings increases another 10-fold!

    Boyd Haley, PhD has said that he believes this is why Alzheimer’s was not identified until 1906, because the cause was mercury vapor coming off of mercury fillings which were first used in the 1830’s, and by 1906, people with mercury fillings had been breathing mercury vapor for 50 years.

    ApoE2, which lowers the risk of Alzheimer’s, carries mercury out of the body; ApoE4, which increases the risk of Alzheimer’s, does not

    Boyd Haley, PhD has also noted that certain variants of a gene called ApoE are associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s.

    The three major variants of this gene are ApoE2 ApoE3 ApoE4.

    ApoE2 is associated with the lowest risk of Alzheimer’s.

    ApoE3 is associated with a medium risk of Alzheimer’s.

    ApoE4 is associated with the highest risk of Alzheimer’s.

    Cysteine is a thiol-containing amino acid.

    (Thiols are sulfur-containing compounds.)

    Mercury is attracted to thiol groups.

    ApoE2 has two (2) cysteines, so it can bind and remove two (2) atoms of mercury.

    ApoE3 has only one (1) cysteine, so it can bind and remove only one (1) atom of mercury.

    ApoE4 has zero (0) cysteines, so it can bind and remove zero (0) atoms of mercury.

    People with two copies of ApoE2 are 8-times less likely to get Alzheimer’s than people with two copies of ApoE3

    People with two (2) copies of ApoE2, which can remove 2 atoms of mercury, are 8-times LESS likely to get Alzheimer’s than people with two (2) copies of ApoE3, which can remove only one (1) atom of mercury.

    People with two copies of ApoE2 are 37-times less likely to get Alzheimer’s than people with two copies of ApoE4

    People with two (2) copies of ApoE2, which can remove two (2) atoms of mercury, are 37-times LESS likely to get Alzheimer’s than people with two (2) copies of ApoE4, which can remove NO (0) atoms of mercury.

    Risk of Alzheimer’s Associated with ApoE2, ApoE3 and ApoE4

    20% of people with zero (0) copies of ApoE4 genes get Alzheimer’s and the average age of onset is 84.

    (This means they have one or two copies of ApoE2 and/or ApoE3 instead, which means these genes can remove two (2) or three (3) or four (4) atoms of mercury.)

    47% of people with one (1) copy of the ApoE4 gene get Alzheimer’s, and the average age of onset is 76.

    (This means they have one copy of ApoE2 or ApoE3, which means these genes can remove one (1) or two (2) atoms of mercury.)

    91% of people with two (2) copies of the ApoE4 gene, which can remove zero (0) atoms of mercury, get Alzheimer’s, and the average age of onset is 68.

    All this is evidence that mercury is a contributing factor to Alzheimer’s, if not the major cause

    All of this is evidence that as Boyd Haley, PhD says, that at the very least mercury is a contributing factor to Alzheimer’s, if not the major cause of Alzheimer’s.

    Synergistic toxicities: Lead increases the toxicity of mercury 100-fold

    Boyd Haley, PhD also points out that it is not just the amount of mercury in your body that causes problems.

    There are also synergistic toxicities with other toxic metals such as lead which must be considered.

    Boyd Haley, PhD also notes that lead increases the toxicity of a known amount of mercury more than 100-fold!

    LD1 of mercury plus 1/20th the LD1 of lead killed 100% of the rats!

    Boyd Haley, PhD says that the LD1 of mercury (enough to kill 1% of rats) plus 1/20th the LD1 of lead killed 100% of the rats!

    “...the administration of an essentially no-response level (LD1) of a mercury salt together with 1/20 of the LD1 of a lead salt killed all [100%] of the animals [rats].”

    Boyd Haley, PhD says when someone says that a person does not have enough mercury in their body to cause them any problems (not enough to be mercury toxic), but they don’t know a person’s lead levels, they don’t know what they are talking about!

    Does all of this suggest that mercury is the cause of Alzheimer’s?

    Does this evidence suggest to you that mercury is the cause of Alzheimer’s?

    It certainly does to me.
