If you are referring to aluminum being a suspected cause of
Alzheimer's disease or whatever, that's BS. I read somewhere (probably
McGee's On Food and Science) that that story was introduced by
stainless steel industry to discourage aluminum cookwares. If you go
to any restaurant supply store, you'll see a lot of large bare
aluminum cookware with no anodizing or teflon. If you look at the
labels of baking powders, antiacid tablets, etc., they often contain
aluminum compounds. Plus, remember white alum is used for food.
