In the latest shocking assault on academic freedom, Keele has now disabled Exley’s website and prevented him from receiving any philanthropic/charitable funding to support his research in the bioinorganic chemistry of aluminum and neurodegenerative disease — essentially the group’s main research theme over the past 29 years.
Exley and colleagues have studied, with great persistence, many different routes of human exposure to aluminum, including ingestion (dietary exposure and infant formula), topical application (cosmetics and other personal care products), inhalation (tobacco and cannabis) and injection (adjuvant-containing vaccines).
As a result of his insatiable scientific curiosity, Exley has become a “world authority on the link between human exposure to aluminum in everyday life and its likely contribution” to Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Who are those “major funders and partners”? One major funder is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which supports activities at Keele’s Institute for Global Health — one of the university’s “strategic research areas.” Among other activities, Gates funding supports studies on gene-drive mosquitoes and efforts to develop standard norms for assessing children globally.
In his reply to Keele’s pro-vice chancellor, Kennedy speculated that the university’s decision to reject his $15,000 donation to Exley’s research group was “likely the product of the pharmaceutical industry’s open, aggressive and rather sinister campaign to defund Professor Exley” due to the latter’s efforts “to accurately characterize, for the first time, the health impacts of aluminum adjuvants in vaccines.”University Shuts Down World-Renowned Aluminum Expert’s Research After Big Pharma Sets Up Shop on Campus • Children’s Health Defense
