Doctors Are WARNING: If You Use Aluminum Foil, Stop It Right Now And This is The Reason Why

We all use aluminum foil in the kitchen, for cooking, and wrapping, and we often use it to treat some common ailments. Yet, a recent study has found that there are some important things we do not know about this kitchen staple.

First of all, aluminum is a neurotoxic heavy metal that has severe side-effects on the function of the brain and has even been associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

According to medical experts, the exposure to this heavy metal might cause long- lasting adverse effects, including mental decline, and loss of balance, memory, coordination, and bodily control.

This study has found that cooking with aluminum foil affects the bones, as aluminum builds up inside the bones and takes the space of calcium, reducing its levels.

Moreover, researchers have related cooking with aluminum foil with pulmonary fibrosis and other respiratory issues as a result of the inhalation of aluminum particles. The same effects are achieved in the case of grilling with aluminum.

    I thought this was disproved 20 to 30 years ago when most of us changed from aluminum cookware to stainless steel. Is aluminum foil different in emission than the cookware?

  6. Can you provide more information, particularly your sources for this article?

  7. I’d like to know more info about this, where the proof is?

  8. I call bullshit…

    I use glass cooking utensils and stainless steel and cast iron…Never put plastic in the micro…May cause brain problems..Glass cookware is wonderful, coat it with a little oil and it’s non-stick.

  10. I still use aluminum foil in the oven. I just put a layer of parchment paper between it and the food so the foil never touches the food–I hope that’s okay. Also, I use it to wrap celery and then refrigerate to keep it crisp. I’m hoping that’s not a problem either (since it stays cold the whole time).

    R u sure?

  12. Most deodorants contain aluminum and have been found to cause breast cancer. Aluminum in any form doesn’t appear to be safe.

    I always heard this about Soda in Alumium cans would cause altimers and plastc causes cancer. Water in plastic bottles. I guess we’re dummed. I don,t cook in alumium foil. I try not to drink from plastic. thats hot. Glass is good. Canning and Soda. raising your own food. People that are perfectly healthy have altimers and die with cancer. We have toxins in the Air.

  14. My husband had aluminum poisoning from drinking out of aluminum cans. He lost his memory & sense of smell. He had chealation therapy and is back to his normal self now. Aluminum is a major health issue. We were told by several lawyers that it does no good to sue places like Alcoa, etc because no lawyer will take the case because of the giant aluminum producers. We would never win the case. Sounds like a major cover-up to us.

  15. bullshit, I have my blood tested regularly and they have never shown a high level of aluminum

  16. From – y’all do your research, before you start to believe what you are reading….

    • Lol, Snopes are not scientist or any degrees profession, do your research BBC reported about plastic in some rice, Snopes said no!

  17. So then all pie plates, muffin tins, lasagna square… Alltoxic no wonder we all have memory problems.. Get em off the shelf then..

  18. If it’s something the cavemen wouldn’t have cooked with, I’m not cooking with it. Just because you can…doesn’t mean you should.

      Since cavemen didn’t drive cars, sleep in beds, own a TV, have glassware, a stove to cook on or have air conditioning. Are you giving up all that too? What a dumb comment.

  19. What about soda cans?

  20. Snopes is not the good source to check out anything…it’s proven false news ….Aluminum is toxic. We use to cover spegetti with it and found it to get little holes all in the ten foil. Little did we know…we were young…new it was bad news tho…stopped using it to cover a dish.

    There are so many things our government knows and is not telling us. Not only about aluminum, but the flouride in our water is a heavy toxin, the microwaves we use are killing all the vitamins in the food within the first 7 seconds, the chemical trails the jets are leaving in our atmosphere to come down to the ground, and many more.

  22. I’ve got a kind of demented cousin who doesn’t remember our playing together as kids or going to high school together… He worked for years at an aluminum plant where they made aluminum foil amongst other things… I wonder…

  23. My father worked at an aluminum plant for over 30 years. He developed Alzheimer’s like symptoms. After many Drs and testing they determined he had aluminum poisoning. His brain was gone. I’m a believer.

  24. I call Bullshit mostly. MOST of use do not cook in Aluminum foil. I haven’t in 20 years. Its primary purpose is to cover meatloaf or pies until time to brown, or to cover brownie pans for transport. They are correct that aluminum leeches heavy metals. That’s no bueno. But if you wrap your camp dinner in it twice a year…your ok. Just don’t cook in it regularly.

    I still would love it if there was credible medical research published with articles like this to validate the content.

  25. I worked in a foundry all we made was aluminum and zinc parts is this the same or worse?

  26. Found on Snopes, for what it’s worth…

  27. This is so very true. Do a little research on your own. It doesn’t take long to find the proof with all of the testing that’s been done. I’ve know about it for years. There is Aluminum in so many things you don’t realize. Aluminum air and water pollution alone is enough. Get rid of the aluminum you know about. Aluminum has been known for some time to be a contributor to Alzheimer’s disease.

  28. Don’t trust Snopes, either, because they do not tell the truth. And that’s the truth.

  29. I use aluminum foil when I cook Fish, have have been doing it for approximately 60 years, and I am 83 years old.

  30. Vaccines have and still do save lives.

  31. I am allegic to aluminum. I have had blood poisoning from being cut by aluminum siding. Had to go to a dermatologist from using deodorant with aluminum chlorhydrate.
    Replaced all my aluminum cookware with stainless but still have been using aluminum foil for some cooking and grilling. I guess I should know better.

    Will I be safe driving a new Ford pickup truck?

  33. I only use cast iron to cook on or a high grade stainless steel pot. Grilling also outdoors, no matter whether it is lava rocks, or charcoal briquettes causes carcinogens – eating Cancer. So for those who question what should they use for outdoor grilling? You shouldn’t be doing out door grilling to begin with unless you want to develop Cancer.

    Read what the CDC had to say.It’s best to try to limit Alluminum usage. I’
    m going to get myself stainless steel pots and pans and lessen the alluminum foil usage. Inconvenient but necessary. I’ll try the parchment paper, but what do I line the bottom ofmy oven with? Parchment?

  35. and the air we breath is not good for us or will kill us , the same goes for water and who knows what else , and over time glass , etc. will be determined not safe to us = darned if we , darned if we don’t !!!
