Admit it.  You, me, most of us have aluminum foil in the kitchen for cooking uses.  It’s easy, convenient, and it works.  But in this case what is easy and convenient isn’t necessarily what is healthy.  According to medical experts, the exposure to this heavy metal can cause long lasting adverse effects including mental decline, loss of balance, memory decline, coordination decline, etc. You know, the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

 

Numerous amounts of people are sill unaware of the fact that when aluminum foil is exposed to high temperatures, it will emit parts of the metal into the food, thus you will be consuming the heavy metal aluminum when you consume the food.  Dr. Essam Zubaidy, a chemical engineering researcher at the American University of Sharjah, has evaluated the effects of aluminum on cooking and found that a meal cooked in aluminum foil can include up to 400mg of aluminum.

 

This means that “The higher the temperature, the more the leaching, the more aluminum you consume via the food.  Foil is NOT suitable for cooking and is NOT suitable for using with vegetables like tomatoes, citrus juice or spices.”

 

According to the WHO (World Health Organization) the Recommended Daily Allowance for aluminum is limited to 60mg daily.  So cooking with aluminum can mean you have the potential of consuming up to 7 times the recommended daily allowance.

 

There’s some food for thought!
