 Hi there,
 I happen to be reading a book titled,
 "metals in biological systems", 1992 by M. J. Kendrick, etal.
 that may give you some information about aluminum in biological systems
 (chap 12). There is reportedly an accumulation of Al in the brains of
 patients with several neurological disorders, like Alzheimer's disease,
 Parkinson's disease, dialysis dementia. You could get more information
 from the refs listed, for an example,
 Crapper, D. R.; Dalton, A. J.; Krishnan, S. S. Science 1973, 180, 511.
