Aluminium contamination

Post by hammered »

Shooting Times 17th July 2015, page 5, a small report states Bees may be suffering a form of Alzheimer's disease due to exposure to aluminium, suggests a study by Keele and Sussex Uni. My thought is could this be a result of or part of the amount of Aluminium bits found in Green waste, as I've detected loads of bits of Aluminium from kitchen fittings on fields that have been spread with wood chip waste that has had mdf chopped up in it. Perhaps someone could contact the Uni or the Bee keepers association to see if this had been considered, as I'm sure the aluminium must leach into the soil and hence into the plants.

I used to have an issue regarding having an inferiority complex, I no longer have an issue with being inferior.

The good and bad thing about aluminium is that its relatively inert. With respect to the shooting times, maybe they could first consider the effects all that lead shot has had on the environment, its proven to cause brain damage, so with more respect to the shooting times reporter, he/she could maybe get tested for brain damage, before pointing the finger at coke cans!
