#219 Is Aluminium Foil Toxic? With Dr Rupy

25 Oct 2023

In todays episode we’re going to be addressing aluminium in cookware. Every time I use foil on social media I always get comments about how toxic foil is to the brain and how I shouldn’t be promoting it,  given my position as a doctor.

So I decided to review the evidence for these claims with the team and do a thorough dive into this topic and find out if there’s any evidence for these inflammatory comments.

Today we talk about …

  • What aluminium actually is
  • How it’s handled by the body
  • Whether foil leeches aluminium into food
  • How much the human body can tolerate
  • And finally, what practical steps we can take to reduce our exposure if you choose to do so
