Resumen This profile draft was prepared in accordance with guidelines set by the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and the EPA. The key literature related to the toxic effects of aluminium is identified and reviewed. Contents: public health statement; health effects; relevance to public health; chemical and physical information; production, import, use and disposal; potential for human exposure; analytical methods; regulations and guidelines; glossary. Heavy exposure to aluminium dust may result in respiratory or neurological damage. There is inconclusive evidence of a relationship between high levels of aluminium exposure and Alzheimer's disease. IARC have concluded that primary aluminium production was carcinogenic to humans, but this is probably due to exposure to carcinogens such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. (Update of CIS 00-653).
