Silica Water the Secret of Healthy Longevity in the Aluminum Age 

by Dennis N Crouse PhD


 This book is about silica water containing an overlooked miracle molecule that protects our life and maintains our health. It is in our bodies even before birth but during our life it ebbs and flows and needs supplementation to be steadily maintained. This superstar of a molecule is called orthosilicic acid (OSA). For most organisms, including humans, it is essential for life. In fact, it is said that OSA is the most important molecule for life on earth. OSA is a miracle molecule because it protects plants, animals, and even humans from toxic forms of aluminum. We are fortunate on earth to have oxygen and silicon as the two most abundant elements in the earth’s crust. Over millions of years silicon has become oxidized by oxygen to a variety of silicon oxides that have in turn formed into a variety of silicon containing minerals as described in Chapter 1. One of these silicon oxides is OSA a water soluble oxide of silicon. As life evolved on earth so did unique ways to use OSA for protection from aluminum, the third most common element in the earth’s crust. The mechanisms by which plants and animals, including humans, use OSA as protection from aluminum toxicity are described in Chapter 2.

ALUMINUM WELDING: Welding, brazing, soldering and joining aluminum. Tools and techniques that are used with other metals 

by Kevin Max

Welding, brazing and soldering are all options for joining aluminum. Aluminum is often joined to the traditional tools and techniques that are used with other metals. Sometimes, however, it may be necessary to use specialized equipment or techniques. Process selection is influenced by the alloy, joint configuration, strength, appearance, value, and cost. Each process has its own advantages and disadvantages. Aluminum can be found in light grays to silvers and is very bright when polished. It becomes dull when oxidized.

A fracture in aluminum sections reveals a smooth, bright structure. The aluminum does not give off sparks and doesn't show any red before melting. On the molten surface, a thick layer of white oxide forms immediately.
Aluminum is lightweight and has good ductility even at sub-zero temperatures. Aluminum is resistant to corrosion and has good electrical and thermal conductivity. It also has high reflectivity to heat and light.
Pure aluminum melts at 1220oF ‘660oC’, while aluminum alloys melt between 900 and 1220oF ‘482–660Oc’. Aluminum does not change color when heated to the welding/brazing range.
Aluminum is the second most widely used metal for welding because of its combination light-weight and strength.

Aluminum Detox: An Easy Solution 

by Dr. Bill McGraw

Measureable amounts of pure aluminum has not existed in our environment before the process to separate it from aluminum ore began on an extraordinary large scale during the last few decades. It has been shown through experimental research that as much as 85% of the aluminum that we take in through air, water, food, medicine, vaccines and cosmetics ends up in our brains, resulting in killing 35% of all elderly over the age of 80 in our modern world. This number is expected to increase to 50% during the next 20 years. Imagine if the 100s of millions of deaths from aluminum toxicity can be stopped with one easy solution.

Moreover, vaccines containing aluminum provoke an entirely different inflammatory response compared to live attenuated vaccines that don’t contain any heavy metals. It has been shown through documented research repeatedly, that heavy metals in vaccines are detrimental to health and have caused countless amounts of suffering and death. The importance of this information currently goes without saying.

From the blue zone with the special mineral waters that have been imperative to reinforce the answer, follow this incredible journey with Dr. Bill McGraw. He provides all the details of how to prevent aluminum toxicity in the human body and how to remove this deadly heavy metal. Alzheimer's is a leading cause of death and the cause and cure of this disease is not only known but being widely suppressed by modern medicine. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Read this book and spread the word so that the horrible suffering of neuro-degenerative disease can end.

Mechanical Behaviour of Aluminium Alloys

By Ricardo Branco, Filippo Berto, Andrei Kotousov

Aluminium alloys are the most common non-ferrous materials utilised for a wide range of engineering applications, namely, automotive, aerospace, mould and structural industries, among others. The wide spread of these alloys in the modern word is due to the unique combination of material properties combining lightness, excellent strength, corrosion resistance, toughness, electrical and thermal conductivity, recyclability, and manufacturability. Last but not least, the relatively low cost of aluminium extrusion is important as it makes aluminium alloys very attractive for applications in different key sectors of the world economy. Despite great interest, extensive previous research, and knowledge accumulated in the past, recent advances in production and processing technologies, combined with the development of new and more ingenious and competitive products, require a profound understanding of the physical and mechanical behaviour of such alloys, specifically in terms of modelling and predictions of the fracture and fatigue life of aluminium alloy components. This Special Issue aims to gather scientific contributions from authors working in different scientific areas, including the improvement and modelling of mechanical properties, alloying design and manufacturing techniques, the characterization of microstructure and chemical composition.
