u guys seen how foil is made? such a simple process, low quality foil for me is foil that is really thin, which sucks so just make sure to buy a good quality foil and u will be fine, even tho the thin wouldn't make different to your healthy than make u burn the tobacco, which is really bad!

Actually, the whole "aluminum cause alzheimers" is geared toward aluminum welders, fabricators, smelters, and metal workers. The study was done based on fumes cause by high amperages of welding, forging, and other allied processes (grinding).
Foil is actually taken from a decent grade of aluminum.
I remeber this from a AWS seminar few years back with WestArc in California.

Yea, It's actually better to smoke and change the foil than to consistently use one screen

aluminum is a symptom of ALz as apposed to a cause. the disease allows the brain to open up and have the metal settle into it thus why the people with the disease have more al in their brain than those with out it.

you are fine, dont worry about it

There's no way aluminum gets hot enough to mess up with your brain with just those coals.

if you burn your al you can get metal poisoning but that just sucks really bad for a while and might mess up some CNS/brain functions but not give you alztimers

Lol nah, about this whole entire foil things seems a little far fetched. I mean it sounds possible but not like with the heat off the coals. Call me crazy but I don't even think coals burn that hot.

al melts at like 1400-1800 (cant remember right off hand)*F and there is no way a coal will get that hot by it self on top of your hookah... now put an empty soda can in a nice roaring fire and it will burn up but that takes a lot of heat
