    According to, aluminum does have some neurotoxic properties, but it is still pretty safe to use aluminum foil for cooking and storing food. The amount of aluminum that could come off of foil or pots and pans is no more than what would be in asprin or other medications that include aluminum.

    The consensus is that there is little cause to worry over using aluminum foil. Aluminum is not classified as being a carcinogen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Toxicology Program. Furthermore, the aluminum that may be ingested through the use of aluminum foil, pots, and/or utensils is only a fraction of the amount considered safe to ingest.
