You could probably predict this one based on my last post.
Companies use plenty (metric fucktons) of aluminium machinery (watch any episode of How it’s Made online) because the odds of you proving the connection and the odds of tracking it back to their production and the odds of you suing is practically nil and they keep profit margins fat. Abstaining from “junk food” might make you feel better because you cut down on your foods processed using aluminium as a powder (e.g. for baking) or aluminium machines (most dangerous/leeching when handling acidic contents AKA most “junk” plus random popular foods like tomato sauce).
It would be so easy to force them to switch to (clean, no other pollutants) stainless steel but that’s more expensive and there’s no public pressure. I link to these to help that end.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is perhaps the principal example of cognitive failure in humans,
and currently over 5.5 million Americans suffer from this incapacitating and progressive disorder of thought, reasoning and memory. Our laboratory has been evaluating the potential contribution of environmentally bioavailable neurotoxic metals to the onset, development and progression of AD for about 30 years
(Lukiw et al., 1987). Largely because of its known multiple and potent neurotoxic effects, much of our research has focused on the potential contribution of aluminum to the AD process
Yeah, why do Americans get it so much, Aluminium Machine Manufacturing America????
And the generation who grew up with “safer” aluminium “tins”…
While I’m activating almonds.
Other elements might be iffy too, if you’re a man with titanium jewelry (skin contact), consider replacing it.
If it seems cheaper and better than (good thing), it’s probably a slow acting toxin.
Why don’t you get Trump to announce companies have to label which metals (elements) are in their products, especially important for say, kitchenware compounds (e.g. stainless steel)? You already have the lead law although that’s in dire need of a re-write because they now label everything as a lawsuit proofing measure.
You need to know what you’re buying, literally.
Simple consumer liberty. Why aren’t we funding this?
