aluminum foil after cooking in an oven for 1.5 hrsA new study published in the International Journal of Electrochemical Science has discovered that cooking with aluminium increases the risk of developing Osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s Disease.

The human body can tolerate 1mg of aluminium per 1kg of bone weight before it begins to accumulate in the brain.

ASTONISHINGLY, it was found that up to 139.2 milligrams of aluminium per person could be consumed in one meal depending on how the food was prepared.

It is common practice around the world to cook, prepare and store food in aluminium. When aluminium is cold, leakage into food is minimal. However, when food is prepared in environments above 150c, aluminium leakage into food becomes alarming.

The researchers examined five different types of meat (beef, water buffalo, mutton, chicken, and turkey) that were packed in aluminium foil and cooked in ovens at various temperatures above 150c. They found that aluminium concentration exploded by 378% in red meats and 215% in poultry.

It was also identified that fat content in meat, in addition to the cooking process, impacted on how much aluminium was found in food.

It was also revealed that highly acidic foods wrapped in aluminium foil contained twice the amount of aluminium and that the size of an aluminium cooking pan also determined how much aluminium leaked into food.

FOOD manufacturers frequently use aluminium to store and preserve food. It’s cheap and highly malleable. However, there are ways to reduce your intake of aluminium from your diet.

How to Reduce Aluminium from Your Diet

1) Ordinarily, drinking water contains low levels of aluminium. Therefore, try to avoid drinking water and fizzy drinks that are stored in aluminium containers.

2) Avoid using antiperspirants (deodorants) that contain aluminium. Many leading brands of antiperspirants contain large quantities of aluminium. In fact, a study published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology found that long-term exposure of human mammary epithelial cells to aluminium resulted in an elevated risk of developing cancer.

3) It is recommended to take calcium, magnesium and zinc supplements to help prevent your body from accumulating high levels of aluminium.

4) There are alternative remedies and food that can help detox the body of aluminium. Lemon Juice, Tumeric, Garlic, Kelp and Cilantro are all widely used to detox the body of Aluminium. Also, soaking your feet for 30 minutes or more in a solution of Epsom salts (1/2 cup) and sea salt (1/2 cup) can remove aluminium through your feet.

Final Remarks

This study concluded that Aluminium foil is not suitable for cooking, especially with food that is highly acidic, and that ingestion of food baked with aluminium foil could aid the development of life-threatening illnesses.

There is enough evidence now to suggest that people who are exposed to high levels of aluminium are at risk of developing terminal illnesses and other complications to their health.

The difficulty we all face is that aluminium is used in almost all of our foods.

In comparison to the difficulties we face in removing fluoride from our diet, aluminium is so prevalent that it’s almost impossible to remove all artificially derived aluminium from our lives.

THE best thing we can do is create awareness in our community about the dangers of aluminium and seek the government to label the risks of exposure to aluminium, especially when cooking.

    hey we use aluminium cookers for cooking thing…..ike boiling potatoes….coking sabji..etc…..is it safe for us..???? plss reply

    Thank you for this. I am very concerned about the amount of aluminum we are using.

    Way too many products (e.g. gum wrappers, toothpaste, etc.) use this insidious element.

    Maybe the fact that it was one of the most difficult metals to extract from the Earth, despite its abundance, tells us something.

    I have been looking to buy a barbecue for some time. Almost all of the barbecues, in a reasonable price range in North America, have a coated aluminum oven. When the high temperatures are used, does this create the possibility of aluminum being released (e.g. as a vapour)? I have not seen any research to this effect. However, back in the 70′s virtually every hiker/backbacker got rid of their aluminum pots and pans due to concerns about its health effects.

    I have also learned that using fluoride (e.g. in toothpaste) increases the likelihood and ease of aluminum ingestion. Recently my town stopped fluoridating its water supply.

    My soccer buddies always have a beer or two after our practices and games. They consume it from aluminum cans. I bring my own in glass bottles. Another problem is that the cans are lined with bisphenol A, and it isn’t just a problem for children.


    Whether you are a conspiracy theorist or not, it is scary to think that, under the guise of “controlling our climate”, our skies are being sprayed on a regular basis with chemicals that include aluminum oxide.

    Your advice is good. Do you know about Type 3 Diabetes and the use of coconut oil to reverse it? This news broke in early 2013 and is now being investigated with clinical studies by a brain institute in the U.S.

      Cook your food on stones! You can pick them up by the sea side.

      That way its nature on nature roasting or boiling!

      Great flavor too!

    Andrew, a very effective way of removing Aluminium is to drink a silicon rich mineral water. See http://www.osa.com.my/index/news/59.html

      I never knew that, thanks for sharing the link with everyone.

    A great way too cook without ever needing to use Aluminium Foil or Aluminium products is to cook with a ‘Slow-cooker’. They’re easy to use, and you can pretty much cook anything in one.

    Hey everyone… Some people have been asking if they could see a copy of the publication this article makes reference too. There is a link to download the publication at the end of the article. Alternatively, here is the full URL to the report.
