Here we are going to discuss why the use of aluminum foil for wrapping of heating food is dangerous to the human body. Today most of the people in the world are using aluminum foil for wrapping food. They are unaware of the hidden harms of this aluminum foil. Aluminum foil is not a good thing to wrap or to heat food. When we wrap food in aluminum foil it leaches out and makes it harmful for our health. The more the food is heated more will be the leaching. It is more reactive to acidic and spicier food. It is easily absorbed by the acidic food. So it is not recommended to make food in aluminum pots and wrap in aluminum foil.
Today most of the household use the oven for cooking. The food to be cooked into the oven is first wrapped in the aluminum foil and then it is heated inside the oven. People used to cook meat in the oven which is first wrapped in the aluminum foil and that meat is aluminum contaminated. The amount of absorption depends on the time spent in the oven and on the temperature of the oven during cooking.
When aluminum is entered through food inside our body our digestion system is unable to digest it. So it is accumulated in our body in our liver, kidneys, bones and in our brain tissues. Due to this people can suffer from abdominal pain or feel tired. Its accumulation goes on increasing because our excreta system is unable to extract it from our body. It affects our nervous system and causes diseases like Alzheimer and depression. it causes memory loss and anxiety. A significant amount of aluminum is found in the brain tissues of the patient suffering from Alzheimer diseases. This is caused due to the food wrapped in aluminum foil or cooked in aluminum pots.
However, we can wrap cold food like soft bread or sandwiches. But never wrap acidic food in aluminum foil. Never wrap vegetables like tomatoes in aluminum foil.
Diseases caused due to aluminum leaching
All the above diseases are very dangerous and are caused due to the use of aluminum foil and aluminum utensils. So it is recommended not to use aluminum foil for wrapping food or for heating food. So stop using aluminum foil and also all aluminum kitchenware these are not good for our health. So say no to these aluminum items and live a healthy life.
