High Aluminum Levels (Overview)

Well it depends what you are talking about. We are not supposed consume high amounts of aluminum. It is usually found in the water and deodorant. In general metals are harmful to us. This is why its better to drink bottled water than tap. Heavy metals are more dangerous. If you consume too much aluminum, it could deposit in tissues...Not good. Hope this helps. Detox!
