Can aluminum damage our health?

Aluminum is one of the most common metal on Earth.
Accordingly, it is found in small quantities also in the air, water and food.

In terms of food, it is possible to find this metal in some recipients. In addition, aluminum sheets are very used to cook and store foods.

Can these factors damage our health?
We can stay relaxed. The aluminum content of food and medicine is not to be considered a problem because only a small part of this metal is absorbed by our body.
The aluminum content that penetrates into the food we then eat from the leaves and containers depends essentially on some factors such as the temperature (if it is high, aluminum can be easily absorbed), or some ingredients, which can increase the traces of metal.

It’s obvious that an abuse of this metal can bring some damages to our health.
However it is impossible to avoid aluminum completely. At the same time, thanks to some precautions, we can reduce the quantity of aluminum assumed.

For instance:
1. Instead of using aluminum sheets, when it is possible, we can replace them with oven paper.
2. Avoid to cook with high temperatures
3. Reduce the use of aluminum utensils.
