If aluminium is so bad why do we allow it to be the 3rd most abundant element in the Earth's crust? If it was toxic wouldn't we find a way to stop it being there and treat it somehow? Sure wouldn't we all be dead by now if it the aluminium in our soil was normally toxic? How would the plants grow? What would the cows eat? We'd all starve for sure. So it must be a good thing.
If 8 out of every 100 grams of soil are made of aluminium can they be wrong? Okay that's only an average as the Mayo Echo points out being average is dangerous. Some soils have a lot more than that. It must be a good thing.
Aluminium saucepans are very handy - nice and light and strong. Excellent.
Drink cans - raw alminium printed in bright colours - so easily opened, drunk, crushed and recycled. Bring bank here we come.
Turkey foil - brilliant at Christmas - that awful toxic substance right around your Christmas turkey - raw metallic aluminium at that not your old aluminium-silicates or any of that inert stuff. Gobble Gobbel excellent aluminium protecting the bird from burning in the oven.
