Our body requires some amount of metals for functioning. Some of them are magnesium, zinc, and iron which can be found in our food.
But there is no obvious requirement of aluminum in the body.
Thus, our body is not able to cope with the considerable quantities of aluminum that regularly gets ingested into our body through the utensils.
Most of the aluminum are discharged from the body through urine. But still, it is believed that about 15-25% of aluminum is absorbed into the body.
Previously it was found that aluminum is non-toxic in nature and won’t do any harm to the body.
But now we know that the aluminum gets accumulated in the liver, lungs, brain, lymph nodes, bones, and parathyroid glands.This can lead to some serious health problem especially among old people.

Accumulation of aluminum in the brain is directly linked to three kinds of dementia, namely Parkinson dementia, dementia of the Alzheimer type and the dementia of dialysis which is because of severe kidney failure.
Nowadays aluminum salts are extensively used in food additives, clarifying agent and non-prescription drugs.
The bitter fact is, aluminum is found in many food items that we purchase from the grocery shop.
As we have already mentioned above, aluminum is directly linked with the Alzheimer’s disease.
It is found that the aluminum concentration in the brain in case of patients with Alzheimer’s disease is four times higher than normal.
Now when you buy a new aluminum cookware set from the store, it looks all shiny and glimmering. But after eight months or so, it loses its luster and becomes dull.
How does that happen?The aluminum which is present in the cookware has left it and came to the food which we eat. How can we be so sure?

Boil some amount of water in the cookware. Remove it and pour into a glass tumbler.
See the tumbler through sunshine. You will see some amount of aluminum floating in the water.
If the peeled potatoes are kept in the aluminum kitchenware overnight, in the morning, you will see that they have all turned yellow.
And when they are cooked, you will see dark streaks on the inside.Why? Some amount of aluminum got into the potatoes.

Some of the startling fact about aluminum cookware.
Some of them are-
1) If you will boil an egg aluminum cookware, it produces phosphate.
2) If you will boil meat in the aluminum cookware, it produces chloride.
3) If you will boil water in the aluminum kitchenware, it produces the poison of hydroxide.
4) All vegetables produce the poison of hydroxide which is responsible for neutralizing the digestive juices and many gastrointestinal problems.
5) Aluminum can cause acidosis which can destroy the red blood cells. This will induce a condition similar to anemia.
So the next thing which we should do is to throw away all the aluminum utensils and replace them with stainless steel, Teflon and glass cookware.
We have to realize that aluminum is a poison for the human body. The more concentration of aluminum we will have in the body, the more amounts of health problems we will face.
Both the distilled and reverse osmosis water can help to carry out the aluminum out of the body.
