Many people use cooking vessels made of aluminium or hindalium (Alloy of aluminium magnesium, manganese, chromium and silicon etc.) for cooking food. Cooking food in such vessels is harmful for health. When such vessels are used for 5 years or more, the harmful effects start becoming visible. Important aspects in this regard are given ahead.

Food cooked in aluminium vessels or in aluminium foil, can absorb aluminium because aluminium dissolves into food and water during the cooking process. This absorbed aluminium goes into the bloodstream and accumulates in different organs in different people causing a multitude of effects. Some unpleasant effects of eating food cooked in aluminium are hyper-acidity, peptic ulcers, indigestion, flatulence, skin problems like pigmentation, eczema, dandruff and chronic inflammation of the intestine, which may be diagnosed or misdiagnosed as Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or as chronic amoebic dysentery. Aluminium reduces growth of bone and predisposes to osteoporosis.

The simple measure of replacing aluminium cooking vessels with stainless steel or cast iron vessels is often effective in curing these ailments.

The poisonous properties of aluminium have been well known for over a hundred years. In developed countries aluminium cook ware usually has a non stick or Teflon coating on it to prevent the aluminium from dissolving in the food. Unfortunately in developing countries this protection is available at a price which makes it unaffordable to large sections of the population. Hence aluminium utensils are widely used in India and other developing countries even often in 5 star hotels.

1. Reasons for these metals being harmful for health

A. Various diseases are caused due to minute particles (Ions) of these metals entering the body

Even if a steel spoon is brushed with force against aluminium vessels, minute particles of aluminium will appear as residue. When food cooked in these vessels is consumed, these particles enter the body through the food. On an average, 5 milligrams of aluminium is consumed everyday through food.

B. Ions in the vessels dissolve faster in acidic materials

When aluminium vessels are used for cooking, ions in the vessel mix with the food, specially if the food contains acidic material such as lemon, tomato etc.

C. Aluminium accumulating in the body becomes slow poison

The human body has limited ability to expel such metals. If the metals accumulated in the body reach beyond this ability, these will start getting stored in the muscles, kidneys, liver, bones etc. Aluminium also stops the growth of brain cells. Thus, aluminium accumulated in the body becomes slow poison.

D. Diseases caused due to food cooked in aluminium vessels

Depression, worry, anxiety, memory loss, osteoporosis, eye disorders, reduction in the ability of the kidneys, diarrhoea, hyperacidity, indigestion, stomachache, colitis, mouth ulcers, skin problems such as eczema etc.

2. Alternatives for aluminium and hindalium vessels

A. Earthen vessels

This is the best alternative. If these vessels are not available in the market, get these made from a local potter. By using earthen pots for cooking food, the body gets necessary minerals through the food.

B. Vessels made of copper and brass

When it is not possible to use earthen pots, vessels made of copper and brass, applied with a thin layer of tin, should be used except for sour food items.

C. Steel vessels

Vessels made of stainless steel can be used. According to a Sanskrut shloka – The first means for performing spiritual practice is a healthy body. Hence, these aspects should be kept in mind without fail.
