    Hi I do all I can to keep aluminum out of my body. But then I found out that the government’s of this world drop chem trails all over the place poisoning us and the land where we grow our food. We will never win this side of heaven.

  2. What is a good alternative for aluminum foil? It keeps pans from getting dirty and it keeps food warm.

    I was gifted a fancy aluminum water bottle, as a camping and hiking accessory. Since it is for cold water use and not hot, is it safe to use?

  4. Grandma never had any aluminum foil. She used a lot of iron skillets to cook in with cast iron lids. they were heavy and did a good job of keeping food warm and they only gave extra iron as a side effect. Just because they never had all these ways to test the folks of yesterday doesn’t mean they needed it. Too many today run to the dr for everything.
    Doctors do perscibe medications to make them money..and often cause side effects. Beware ! Eat healthy and Raw foods an fruits fit much better in the diet. If they milked a cow they also didn’t pastuerize it..and it was much better to use. And most foods of the early days was ate before it spoiled, but’s food is so full of preservatives the embalmers say most are half embalmed before they die. Preserved foods are just not healthy.
