Question EXCESSIVE ALUMINUM=ALZHEIMER'S?

Anyone heard of this?

Many people suggest using punctured foil on top of your bowl underneath the coals. DID YOU KNOW THAT EXCESSIVE ALUMINUM IN THE BODY CAUSES ALZHEIMER'S? Smoking from household aluminum isn't good for you anyway, there are also bonding agents that give off fumes. Don't be afraid with OCCASIONAL smoking, but don't make it a habit; don't use household foil on your personal hookah. There is foil available made especially for hookahs, or use a screen meant for hookahs. The latter is recommended, but your bowl will last much longer with foils if the holes are done correctly.

I agree with Scoop. I would think that if aluminum foil was that bad it would have been banned from all food prep use years ago.

Aluminum foil doesn't produce poisonous fumes until a certain degree. I remember reading some where that cooking with it is fine because most conventional ovens don't reach the heat capability of actually burning the foil. A simple lighter or match will produce higher and more intense heat that will burn foil unlike an oven though.

Can anybody tell me exactly how foil sold by your various hookah hawkers is at all different from the common Reynolds Wrap most people use, other than being pre-cut?

the whole aluminum thing is so silly. and even if its true, i would hope that i would get alzheimers because i do think that everyone needs to have some sort of disease, it adds character to people.

I know the hookah foils I have seen are considerably thinner than Reynold's HD foil. I'll take the thicker foil and cut it myself.

yea, i notice it also. way too thin. and sometimes the precuts just wont cover a phunnel bowl. it sucks when you buy a the precut hookah foils thinking that it should work but when you get home, pack your bowl, and you find out that the precut foil is just too small for the bowl.

*slaps forehead*

NOOOO aluminum foil DOES NOT make you get Alzheimer's!

The only reason why that myth has been made is cuz people who have Alzheimer's have aluminum their brain. But, no one has substantial evidence to back the myth that you get Alzheimer's from aluminum foil. So basically....it isn't true
