In addition to contaminated foods, which contain chemicals, kitchen utensils also contain noxious substances.
To ensure that the body absorbs clean, non-toxic food, in addition to choosing fresh and organic foods, choosing the right kitchenware is also important.

However, an article from the Journal of Alzheimer’s shows that the relationship between people consuming aluminum and people with Alzheimer’s disease, as well as other neurodegenerative diseases.
Most aluminum tools (such as pots) are safe to use, as they are oxidized. But aluminum foil is different, they are not oxidized and when used at high temperatures, the risk of aluminum ingesting food is very high.
This is especially true when you use aluminum foil in the cooking of acidic foods such as tomatoes, they can speed up the process of washing away aluminum from aluminum foil.

In particular, aluminum tools are not coated with external antioxidants, it is easy to release metal into certain foods – including acidic foods (for example tomato sauce) and alkaline foods (salted blooms).
Although aluminum cookware is generally considered relatively safe and difficult to penetrate metal, consumers should still avoid using uncoated aluminum.
Safe alternatives are candle papers, glass or porcelain.
