aluminum cans are lined with a film. Poly I think.

In the cooking pots I am talking of no food actually touches the metal. It is heals on a trivet and the aluminum is used for an oven.

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.

What ever happened to the Teflon scare of the 70's?

I am with this, every day some one is quoting some study that says if you do this/don't do this, this is what will happen to you. Like lead, how much do you ingest before it hurts you? I use to ask our safety guy that and they never could give me an answer.

You should not cook with aluminum as there is a link between Alzheimer's
and aluminum comsumption. I have Alzheimer's in my family history so I
am sensitive to aluminum content in and around my food.

Get rid of the aluminum replace it with glass, stainless or cast iron.

I am a rock climber and I use a lot of aluminum carabieners, and repeling devices. After a day of working with all the aluminum tools my hands are gray. I never use aluminum in cooking for the simple reason that it just comes off to easily and I don't want my body to have to process that.

I do know that golf club manufacturers use acid to turn their etched logo dark so it stands out when polished.
