Can anybody answer, why our ancestors used to live more than 100 years, without getting diseased or anything else? Several factors were there, diet, environment, activeness etc all played a vital role, which is quite difficult now.

What we use mostly?

How can aluminum vessels be bad for health?
Now a question arises, how these vessels can do worse for your health. If you are using aluminium vessels for cooking on daily basis, then you are consuming up to 4 to 5 mg of aluminium daily!
Human body is not able to remove, such a high amount of aluminium from the body naturally.

Steaming vs Boiling; Are you cooking your baby’ food in the right way?
Absolutely right .never use aluminium cooking vessels , it is dangerous to health. Ancient people use . copper and pital with zinc coating. They get zinc
Instead of aluminium, there are many alternatives like copper, silver, iron or earthen wares. These are health friendly and never does harm.
I agree usage of steel vessels. If you have aluminium ones, throw away or give to shopkeeper in an exchange offer. We think, we are to live with the existing aluminium vessels, which not only reduces quality of life but reduces for no fault of ours except for cooking in aluminium vessels.
Thank you for this article. We are going today to replace with steel ones.
This article is wrong and outdated. We absord on 5% of the aluminium we consume. And there is zero scientific consensus that aluminium is the cause or even related to these problems. You haven’t even sited the article to prove you position. Useless article in the end
Please don’t get me wrong but I don’t agree that if it is not sited other articles to prove then its outdated. If possible, please provide the link which supports your thoughts.
