The table implies for example that Alzheimer's is 164 times more prevalent in Finland than in Singapore. One would think that would be widely known, if true. There must be essentially zero Alzheimer's in Singapore if these stats are true.
Conversely, if these stats really are true, then they are very important!
You are right, looking at countries that have high and low rates of Alzheimer's can give very important information. Yes Singapore has very low rates of death from Alzheimer's and so does Malaysia. I have attached a table with those rates.
My husband recently looked at the Blue Zones as people there live longer and there are lower rates of dementia and Alzheimer's. In addition there is a great deal of information on these areas as they are well known and have been studied a lot. My husband after a great deal of research found the drinking water in all the Blue Zones is high in Silica due to the underlying geology of the areas. We were both very surprised by these findings. Each time he would go to research the next Blue Zone we would wonder will he be able to find the data and would there be high levels of silica in the drinking water. When he got to the last Blue Zone, Loma Linda I thought there was no way he would find high silica in the drinking water. Their drinking water is high in silica and one of the tenets of the 7th day Adventists religion is to drink 8 glasses of water a day.
Here are the 5 Blue Zones:
• Okinawa, Japan – The largest island in a subtropical archipelago that has the world’s longest lived women.
• Villagrande, Sardinia – A small mountainous region on an island off the coast of Italy with the world’s highest concentration of male centenarians.
• Ikaria, Greece – An island off the coast of Greece in the Aegean Sea that has one of the lowest rates of middle age mortality in the world and the lowest rate of dementia in the world.
• Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica – A region where residents have one of lowest rates of middle age mortality in the world and the second highest concentration of male centenarians.
• Loma Linda, California – City with the highest concentration of Seventh-day Adventists in the U.S.A. where they live ten years longer than the average American.
Regarding Finland there is a recent study 2017 titled Why does Finland have the highest dementia mortality rate? Environmental factors may be generalizable Arnold R.Eiser Mold was one of the things they looked at. This study didn't look at aluminum or silica water.
Finland the highest percentage of people with APOE4 in Europe or the modern -westernized world. Might that play a role Apoe4/western lifestyle?
I agree metal over abundance in the brain may play one of many roles in causing Alzheimers as Amyloid is used to clear it from the brain. Silica may be a help in clearing excess Aluminum or other metals but I have my doubts it alone would prevent Alzheimers or be the driving force behind longevity.

I put a heaping tablespoon into a small glass of water once a day and drink it. I’ve found it keeps you clear of parasites and also cleanses you of toxins like aluminum, so this all makes a lot of sense to me. I’m 3/4. Very inexpensive and easy to do yourself as opposed to buying silica bottled water...

I am going to place a small bet on silica but I am also going to cover my bet on Silica by placing larger bets on other seemingly very large important variables such as Research, Exercise (mind and body), Sleep, diet...etc..

Nice to know. I am in a facebook group for drinking silica water for removing aluminum, people frequently post when there is a sale on Fiji water. I will keep whole foods in mind.

In the meantime, I'm using the large Fiji bottles to make bottle bricks. I've filled four in two weeks with all kinds of little and cut up things that can't be recycled, at least where I live. Some day they will be the inside of an exterior bench or wall. I'm having so much fun doing that with my non-recyclables, I may have to keep buying Fiji water to sometimes to keep up! You can pass this on to the group. Good project for kids too, and they it seems to bring the kid out in me. You have to get to know just what your local recycle facility is and isn't using, and keep the nots out of the bin so they don't ruin the batch. I was making a lot of recycling mistakes without realizing it.
