Aluminum Foil Leaches Toxins
It has been scientifically proven that heat causes aluminum from the foil to leach out into foods.
Aluminum is destructive and has absolutely no use to our bodies. Aluminum accumulates in the kidneys, brain, lungs, liver, and thyroid where it competes with calcium for absorption and may prevent your bones from absorbing minerals.
Once you are not able to absorb minerals, your bones will get weaker and weaker leading to osteoporosis.
Study after study has proven, without a shadow of a doubt, that aluminum is toxic to virtually every system of the body, including the brain.
A serious problem is that aluminum is very difficult to remove from the body and will continue to accumulate in the bones and brain.
A 2011 study reveals that aluminum is “a widely recognized neurotoxin” and it directly inhibits more than 200 biologically important functions and causes various adverse effects in plants, animals and humans.
This same study illustrates how aluminum compounds directly cross the blood-brain barrier, embedding into key areas of the body responsible for energy production, gene expression and enzyme catalysis.
Another study found dangerously high levels of aluminum in foods after being cooked, reheated and even cooled on aluminum foil.
When it comes to aluminum leaching into food while cooking, it was shown:
“The higher the temperature, the more the leaching. Foil is not suitable for cooking and is not suitable for using with vegetables like tomatoes, citrus juice or spices,” according to a study.
However, It is okay to wrap cold foods in aluminum foil, without any leaching.
STOP COOKING WITH ALUMINUM FOIL
Millions of people cook meats using aluminum foil, without being aware of the serious harm.
A study showed that cooking meats using aluminum foil greatly increase aluminum concentration in the food.
According to a 2006 study, cooking meat in aluminum foil increased aluminum levels(in food) as follows:
- Red meats cooked in aluminum foil showed an increase in aluminum by 89 to 378 percent
- Poultry increased by 76 to 214 percent
- Aluminum levels increased with higher cooking temperatures and longer cooking times
STOP DUMPING TOXINS INTO YOUR BODY AND HEATING UP OR COOKING FOODS WITH ALUMINUM FOIL.
A great alternative to using aluminum foil is banana leaf. Cultures around the world use banana leaf to cooking, warming up, grilling, or barbecuing foods. It is a great replacement for aluminum foil, and will great your food great amazing flavor, minus the toxins of aluminum. You will taste a difference!
