Hi docs, would occasionally ingesting aluminum foil make you go crazy within a couple months?

Hi docs, would occasionally ingesting aluminum foil make you go crazy within a couple months?

No: Dialysis dementia resulted in part from aluminum toxicity but that was introduced in fairly sizable amounts into the bloodstream itself. There's a "pop" claim about aluminum in drinking water "correlating with" Alzheimer's but when I chased down the actual article it showed a NEGATIVE relationship, the facts being misrepresented by the scaremongers. I decided it was noise -- no real relationship. ...Read more

I have eaten a small amount of aluminum accidentally (from food wrapping) . What will happen to me?

No worries: The small amount you consumed shouldn't be a problem. Aluminum is one of the most plentiful elements that we are exposed to. It is toxic so our bodies have mechanisms to clear it. It isn't a good idea to expose yourself to more than necessary and especially don't cook in aluminum pans or use foil on acidic foods. One way to remove aluminum out of the body is to consume silicon rich water. ...Read more

Just to be sure you may wish to wrap the potato in paper suitable for baking (parchment paper) and then wrap it in aluminum. ...Read more

Even much of the government stuff is subscientific. ...Read more
