Aluminium is use most commonly as it is cheapest utensil and

It conducts heat very fast.

But the hazard is that,

It leaches toxins in food while cooking, especially sour food,

Like tomato sauces, backing soda, vinegar, lemon. Etc.

These toxins crosses blood/brain barrier and

are more harmful to your neurons-known as neurotoxins.

This leads to ALZHEIMER’S disease.

Sale of aluminium vessels is prohibited in Germany, France,Belgium,Hungary and Brazil.

Food cooked in copper pot can lead to your gastrointestinal tract distress and light headaches.

called surgical steel.

Stainless steel is costlier than Aluminium,

but it is always advisable to spend money

for the sake of your health rather then on mobiles and other gadgets.
