    "Scientist can not remember if Alzheimer’s Disease causes higher concentrations of aluminum, or if it is caused by high concentrations of aluminum."


    :stoned: :stoned:

    I think more studies need to be done :)

    Interesting read though

    Habitually smoking tobacco lowers your risk of Alzheimer's Disease. So smoke aluminum foil AND cigarettes just in case! :p

    Aluminum foil beeing dangerous is news to me...
    Everyone I know use it when cooking. You get the best fish ever if you make yourself a nice little fire outside, put a recently fished fish inside aluminum foil, and put it over the fire. I thought that was what aluminum foil was for?!
    I seriously doubt that's dangerous at all. I also use foil when smoking every time.

    Even if the fumes aren't released from burning it(which they are, lol), you still have it on your mouth.

    That's a good point.
    Combustion makes vapor, impurities from incomplete combustion (leaving black residue, not white) can make that vapor acidic, and that combination can corrode the aluminum so it DOES become mobile.
    Plus your saliva is acidic.
    If I had to smoke out of metal, it would be either stainless steel, anodized aluminum, titanium, or bronze, which are all pretty resistant to corrosion.

    Never used it, never will. I dont see the point, when you can just go but a pipe, or some real screens for a bong. I wouldnt risk it.

    incomplete combustion produces less carbon dioxide and more carbon ("black residue") and carbon monoxide. carbon monoxide is a poison because it replaces the oxygen in your blood. neither carbon or carbon monoxide are acidic and hence do not corrode the aluminium. and your saliva is not acidic (your stomach ACIDS are but not saliva), instead it contains enzymes which start to breakdown any starchy foods you eat.

    i always use AL if i'm out of gauzes......plus people use it in the oven with FOOD and thats heated to the same (if not most likely higher) temps than a lighter and for longer time periods. so shove that in your pipe and fuck off

    You're assuming that cannabis is made of nothing but pure carbon.
    Which it isn't.
    Take coal for example, which is made of plant material. Lots of carbon but that's not all.
    The nitrates, phosphates, etc found in plant matter are still in the coal, which, when burned, releases them into the atmosphere and they are part of acid rain (nitric and phosphoric acids).

    You have a nice day too, now, y'hear?

    didnt read but i gathered info from the posts. I hardly use it but before I was a daily toker I used it ALL the time cause I didnt have anything else. now i got bongs, pipes, vaporizers galore so the aluminum just comes into play when I make gravity bongs which isnt too often anymore
