This study was performed to explorealuminium exposure in healthy individuals, andoccupa- tionally exposed populations compared with neurological diseases patients. The results indicate that a significant differences were found between aluminium concentration in sera of healthy individuals compared with occupationally exposed populations (p<0.01). No significant difference(p>0.05) was observed in occupationally exposed populations compared with Parkinson's disease victims. Serum aluminium levels were much higher in Alzheimer's disease victims compared with aluminiumplan-ts workers (p<0.01). The results indicate that aluminium is not a risk factor to healthy non-ccupati-onally exposed populations, while the adverse effects were observed in occupationally exposed populations, and neurological disease victims.
