Why shouldn't you use one?
Don't mind if I do!

Could it not be more logical to assume it was improperly diagnosed or attributed to "old age?". Just saying...jonmohno said:Cancer was not even around until the last century
FYI cancer has been around thousands of years. Also, life has improved remarkably because of advances in pesticides and factory farming because chemicals in your food are not nearly as bad as a lack of proper nutrition due to proper food being unavailable. That being said, now that we have advanced, it is time to advance further and eliminate hormones/harmful chemicals from our diets. Also, I do agree that we need to take what the FDA says with a grain of salt because a lot of times its either total bull**** or not enough time has passed to know possible side effects.I would be more worried whats in your cupboard or watersupply really.Ive always stayed away from any aluminum but i dont want to debate,its just my preference.The fda tells you all kinds of things are ok when they are not so i dont beleive them anyway.Cancer was not even around until the last century and look at how we do things so differnetly than they did centuries ago.I blame the pharmacetical,and food industry and those associated,way to go greedy muther****ers,trying to thin the herd and reduce the population count.Microwaves,Pft..deathfood.List goes on and on. I think its extremley funny how pharmacuticals have no long term study and the population is just an experiment,look at all the deaths, what fraud.
I know this was a bit off topic but not really this is part of what its all about.After finding out the craploads of stuff they get away with making a buck,i have no respect for deceit.
Aluminum will transfer heat faster than stainless steel (of similar thickness) so it can burn more easily. So you need to either adjust your heat down a little, or keep a closer eye on it. On the flip side, it cools down faster. One of the first things you should do with a new AL pot is boil water in it for 30 minutes or so to create an oxide layer. I don't think there are any credible links to Al and cancer or Alzheimer's (if there was, I probably forgot about it...)funny this was brought up i've been using an aluminum kettle since i started which was not too long ago.. i've got about 8 batches done and a few of them were extract. is anyone aware being that aluminum kettles conduct so well and they tend to be thin, does this make me more at risk to burning or rather carmelizing the lme ? i've got more of a twang on some of my beers and for what i can discern over the weeks and months of some the twangy sour almost taste has not gotten worse..leading me to think its not infection.. i;m at a loss , since i've gone all grain and am tryng to norrow done what this problem is..
forgot to mention today is the first day i've ever decided to splash 4ish gallons in my kettle and boiled it for about an hour.. i can see the oxidized layer now, could this be a contributing factor to my taste?
Do you go to restaurants? If so, I guarantee you that you're eating food that's been cooked in aluminum.I don't use aluminum and won't knowingly eat out of it. As was said before though not gonna argue about it. I did notice however that reynolds wrap has a new foil that has a paper backing to keep the aluminum from contacting the food for some reason.
Good pointgr8shandini said:Do you go to restaurants? If so, I guarantee you that you're eating food that's been cooked in aluminum.
As for the foil, I think that's to keep acidic foods away from the foil so it doesn't dissolve over long storage periods.
Also, for whoever mentioned that aluminum pots are usually thin and can lead to scorching, you might want to look into a heavy duty stockpot. My boil kettle is a 40 qt stockpot that's 6mm thick (roughly 1/4"). $75 at my local restaurant supply store.
True! And for those who overindulge :cross: in the beer they brew, the alcohol is doing much more damage than any aluminum could.I would be more worried whats in your cupboard...
Ha! Most people just died before they had a chance to get cancer.Cancer was not even around until the last century...
