Aluminum foil is so popular, and we all use it regularly. However, after understanding this, we should not use it!

According to new research, there are several highly essential facts about aluminum foil that we don’t know. Aluminum is a highly neurotoxic metal with severe consequences for brain function. It has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Yet, we use it regularly in our kitchens?

According to studies, heavy metal exposure may have long-term negative consequences. Mental deterioration, memory loss, and even loss of physical control are all examples. According to the research cited above, cooking with aluminum affects our bones. Aluminum grows within our bones as we use it, taking calcium’s place. Our calcium levels are lowered as a result of this.

It’s been related to pulmonary fibrosis and various other respiratory problems. As a consequence of inhaling aluminum particles, this occurs. When grilling, you may obtain the same results by using aluminum. Dr. Essam Zubaidy, a chemical engineering researcher at the American University of Sharjah, studied the effects of aluminum on cooking and came up with some surprising results. Cooking with aluminum might result in your food containing up to 400mg of aluminum.

This is something that many people are still ignorant of. When aluminum is heated to a high temperature, it releases metal fragments into our meals. More leeching happens as the temperature rises. This hefty metal shouldn’t be used in the kitchen. According to the World Health Organization’s RDA (recommended daily limit), we should only ingest 60mg of aluminum daily. This means that the 400mgs we receive by cooking with it is excessive. We should try to avoid using aluminum foil as much as possible.
