A study of the Federal Institute for risk assessment (BfR) comes to the conclusion that for some groups of the population are in danger of harmful amounts of aluminum from food or body care products. To minimize potential health hazards, give the experts tips on how the recording can be reduced.
The average intake of aluminum from food, reached about 50 percent of the limit value of a milligram of Aluminium per kilogram of body weight per week. Some people, however, run the risk to exceed this value, such as infants who are not breastfed exclusively, and small children who require specially adapted diets, for example, in the case of soy-based, lactose-free or hypoallergenic diets. If, in addition, personal care products, pharmaceuticals and aluminum-containing packaging materials are considered, also threaten young people and adults Exceedances of the limit value.
"There is scientific uncertainties still exist, especially in the evaluation of the long-term. consequences, as well as the actual levels of Intake of Aluminium over the Haut"… BfR President Professor Dr. Dr. Andreas Hensel says. The BfR therefore advises to reduce the precaution of recording from avoidable sources, and gives some tips:
•In the first six months of life infants should be exclusively breastfed. •Aluminum-containing antiperspirants and toothpaste to use sparingly. •A varied diet, as well as changing products and brands can help to reduce the risk by a single strong aluminum-containing products. •In particular, acidic and salty food should not be used in uncoated aluminum articles or aluminum foil, and stored prepared.
