Let me stress this one more time..
i cannot stress how dangerous aluminum foil or tin foil is, their the same thing and will both kill you slowly
when you smoke out of that shit, there is stuff in/on it that you are inhaling, and it's been prven to help cause alsheimers and shit like that. please guys, please follow advice and DON'T use Aluminum Foil
ALUMINUM FOIL DOESN'T HURT YOU. It cannot harm you. It is IMPOSSIBLE to melt, vaporize or inhale aluminum from smoking out of it with a BIC/butane/torch/etc. Aluminum foil has a melting point that EXCEEDS 1000 degrees F.
Have any of you ever gone camping and wrapped your baked potatoes in foil and put them in a fire? It is common sense.

In our Center, we do not recommend that people avoid aluminum cooking pans or aluminum-containing antiperspirants or antacids because there is little evidence that such lifestyle changes are helpful. Moreover, it is impossible to avoid ingesting a certain amount of aluminum, which is found naturally in food and water."
"In the mind of many scientists, if aluminum plays a role it is most probably a secondary one. The reasoning for this position is based on the fact that aluminum is one of the most abundant and pervasive elements. It is found everywhere--it is in the water we drink, it is in the dust we breathe, it is in many of he substances we use every day such as coke in glass bottles, food preservatives, many cosmetics and food dyes. Even if we stop using pots and pans or underarm deodorants, it will be virtually impossible to avoid aluminum. Given this type of exposure of the general population, if aluminum is playing a major role then one would expect the numbers of people affected by Alzheimer's to be much higher than they are found in epidemiological studies."
EDIT: PS, you can find/confirm any of this info online if you search for it. I'd encourage you to try and prove me wrong. If more people spent any time researching things they said before spouting off at the mouth they would be a whole lot more informed.
