Which, by the way, is how I see news stories much of the time and how seeming fact is actually a distortion of truths not told by those that were quoted.

While I am no scientist, I have read articles in Science Journals on the subject and am personally satisfied that two generations of lifetimes eating meals cooked in Al pots ie Magnalite etc, none of the family members have suffered from Alzh. Although, we do suffer from mild cases of obesity from the foods most often cooked in them. Fat, dumb and happy comes to mind.
