If you’re baking fish, roasting vegetables or preparing a piece of meat for dinner tonight, chances are that you’ll wrap your food in aluminium foil. What you may not realise is that some of the foil will leach into your meal – and this could be bad for your health.
Research that I conducted with a group of colleagues has explored the use of aluminium for cooking and preparing food. Aluminium doesn’t just appear in foil: it is the most popular cookware material used by people in developing countries. Pots and pans are lined with it and it is found in some kitchen utensils like large serving spoons. Copper used to fulfil this role, but over time it’s been replaced by aluminium because it is cheaper to mass produce and easier to clean.
But while cooking your food in aluminium pots or pans isn’t a bad thing, placing it in foil and putting it in the oven is problematic. This is especially true with acidic or spicy food that’s prepared at high temperatures.

GMO’s are ubiquitous throughout the United States and many other nations, making them difficult to avoid. Although presumed safe or GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by governmental authorities and GMO manufacturers, studies have shown that a number of problems can occur in animals as a result of eating a GMO diet, including physiological issues and excessive cell growth in stomach or intestinal lining. Digestive issues typically improve when GMO’s are removed from the diet, but nonetheless GM foods can negatively affect digestion which is key to the body’s overall health.
“An astonishing 85% of respondents reported improvements in their ‘digestive problems,’ the ailment most commonly cited. Of these respondents, 80% said their digestive issues were ‘significantly improved’, ‘nearly gone’, or ‘completely recovered’.” – Jeffrey M. Smith
For years it has been a supposed mystery, but it is finally being acknowledged that a primary cause of cancer in the world today is diet. Studies are now showing that obesity plays an enormous role in one’s chances of getting cancer, and the main cause of obesity is the type of foods people eat. It is in large part a lifestyle disease, and the most important relevant lifestyle choice is food.
“Overall, we estimated that 40.8% of incident cancer cases were attributable to exposure to the 24 factors included in the analysis (Table 2). Tobacco smoking was responsible for the greatest cancer burden, accounting for an estimated 15.7% of all incident cancer cases (2485 cases), followed by physical inactivity and excess body weight, which were responsible for an estimated 7.2% and 4.3% of incident cancer cases, respectively. All other exposures of interest were estimated to be responsible for less than 4.0% of incident cancer cases each.” [Source]
