It seems to make life so much easier to line the bottom of the baking dish, potatoes for baking, corn for grilling, and all sorts of other food in aluminum foil, right? And seriously, who doesn’t lick the aluminum foil top when you take it off the coconut yogurt
? It seems like every easy-to-use, nonstick pan has aluminum in it. Plus, it’s nearly impossible to get a can of soda pop, beer or snarling water without aluminum. It’s true, using aluminum makes day to day life easier. But does it make life better?
According to the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR), research studies “show that people exposed to high levels of aluminum may develop Alzheimer’s disease”. Further, aluminum has been linked to: kidney disease, bone disease, brain disease and lung problems. Plus, the nervous system is a real target for aluminum.
