    Post Is Aluminum Foil bad?

    Is aluminum foil bad even if you only use it like twice a month tops? i always use some aluminum foil for a nice gravity bong but never on custom pipes. I was wondering if it would be bad to put it on a homemade bong and use it as the bowl or should i find a better bowl?

    aluminum and copper are both bad to smoke out of...if at all avoidable you should avoid them, but aluminum won't kill you....

    corse u dont have alzheimers, it takes years to develop. tinfoil is designed for sealing heat in, not burning, its metal for gods sake, you wanna smoke metal?

    Does anyone have any concrete evidence? Studies, etc...


    It's not that I doubt it, but I'd like to know just how bad it is for you...

    like i said, its metal. smoking any plant material is bad for yer lungs, so think of the damage metalic fumes are going to do to yer lungs. also it ruins the taste of the herb

    Aluminum is generally bad for you because I've read that it can credit to having Alzheimer's, but I'm guessing you don't smoke out of aluminum bowls all the time so I wouldn't worry. I usually only use aluminum for buckets and lungs only.

    aluminum sucks ive only used it a few times as a screen for my glass pipe to smoke salvia extract cause the leaves were so fine and you can see flaming bits of aluminum breaking off and going into your lungs

    NO NO NO NO NO NO

    I can't stress this enough.

    ALUMINUM FOIL IS NOT BAD FOR YOU!

    It CAN be bad for you and please read ALL OF THIS to understand.

    NO STUDY has proven that aluminum foil can potentially harm you through cooking, heating, or using as a heat conduit. ALTHOUGH, if you heat aluminum foil to the point that it begins to evaporate and burn, the FUMES FROM THAT CAN HURT YOU.

    Now, for bud usage.

    Do you hold your flame on the bowl for 25-30 second? Do you use a torch lighter for 5-10 seconds? Do you start a big bonfire and hold your aluminum foil boil over the fire for the duration of the session?

    Do you get black tar like smoke arising from your bowl when heating?

    NONE OF THOSE SYMPTOMS = a nice safe happy smoking session.

    Everything gives off a taste.

    Suck on a metal pipe without lighting it.

    Suck on a glass pipe without lighting it.

    Taste a difference. Exactly.

    It is important to note that aluminum foil, especially true for 'non-stick' foil and aluminum cans is coated with one or more other agents. Aluminum cans I can say for certain are coated with layers of ink and a layer for shine on the outside and another layer of something on the inside so the drink doesn't react with the metal.

    Your posts have been awful straightforward and informative of late. How strange.
