Look for aluminum-free baking powder the next time you go shopping. Aluminum may pose potential risks to our health as a neurotoxin. While the dose makes the poison, some studies show a relationship with aluminum that is stored in the body and neuro-disorders (such as Alzheimer’s disease.) Limiting exposure to all metals is a protective measure we can take to optimize our health.
