How much do you know about the tin foil and plastic wrap you use in your kitchen? Do you know the health risks? Do you know about the environmental impact these products have? I believe we all have a right to know exactly what is in the products we spend our money on and bring into our homes. Plastic wrap(or Reynolds wrap) and aluminum foil are convenience products. They are meant for single use, to be thrown away and forgotten about. The manufactures of these products are in it for one thing….profit.
Let’s start with aluminum foil. The biggest problem with this, is it’s link to Alzheimer’s, bone disease and reduced growth rate of brain cells. When food is cooked in aluminum foil the heat allows it to leach into the food you consume. Which then is stored in your body and mostly affects the brain. For the unfortunate people who have died from Alzheimer’s, autopsy have shown elevated levels of aluminum. Alzheimer’s is a tragic disease that affects memory.
