Good choice in sticking with the apple. Smoking out of aluminum for over some time will definitely yield lock jaw so I'm glad your looking out for your health. Happy tokins
What evidence do you have to back this up?

with aluminum cans its not the aluminum its the paint on the outside of the can, burning any ink will harm you, i read on here that its not aluminum that harms you but other substances in aluminum foil products
I mean, if there is even a tiny chance smoking out of aluminum foil could hurt me then why would I do it? It's just easier than making an apple pipe every day for the next week, but I'll take an extra 10 minutes to stay healthy and avoid that .0000836% chance of getting hurt. And the dude with lockjaw got lockjaw. Even if it wasn't definitely from aluminum, it might have been. And I have bad luck when it comes to getting hurt so the apple pipe it is.
Common misconception. Not true at all.
Alzheimers patients SOMETIMES have higher concentrations of aluminum in their brains. That does not mean you can intake aluminum from smoking out of it, nor that the aluminum caused the alzheimers. You absorb far more aluminum from your antiperspirant.
There is a tiny chance that driving could hurt me, so why would you I do it? It's just easier than walking every day for the next week, but I'll take an extra 10 minutes to stay healthy and avoid that .0000836% chance of getting hurt.
Haven't a lot of people been cooking baked potatoes forever by wrapping them in aluminum foil and sticking them in the oven? Wouldn't some harmful chemical vape into the potato if it was really that bad for you? I don't really know, or have researched, just wondering, has anyone read up on this?
Hey guys. I made a waterfall bong a little while back and I've been using aluminum foil as the bowl. Now I have heard some people say it's terrible for you and it'll kill you instantly. Then the others say it's harmless, the melting pt of aluminum is a thousand degrees and you won't get vapor until then. I really do want to know because if aluminum will kill me I'll obviously go buy myself a real bong.
Please don't tell me I'm a dumbass for using aluminum as a bowl, I only did it because I'm kinda short on cash. But if you actually know either way let me know. I've only used this bong about 6 times and I'm getting a vape soon, but I'll probably use it every day next week just for a heads up in case that makes a difference. So I geuss my question is, should I be making firecrackers next week or am I good to smoke out of my aluminum?
thanks for helping me out.
Is smoking out of an aluminum foil pipe hazardous to your health?
What Is Known About Aluminum Foil
Aluminum foil is very pure- in fact it is 99.9% pure, with the .1% being various residues from the manufacturing process that are burned off at low temperature and other impurities found within the material.
Humans contact aluminum from various sources throughout their everyday routines. Common uses for aluminum are: food (naturally occurring) & food additives, antacids & other pharmaceuticals, cooking utensils, soil, drinking water, air, and electronics.
Aluminum has a shiny and a dull side- there is no difference to the two sides, this is caused by the manufacturing of aluminum. The sheets are too thin to cut one at a time, so they cut two pieces at a time, causing a shiny and dull side.
Average human intake of aluminum is around 3grams (a little higher inCanada because the drinking water is treated with higher concentrations of aluminum).
Aluminum, at temperatures below melting point, does not give off gas or vapor.
What Is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s Disease is a progressive disease that affects the brain- causing mental deterioration, disorientation, depression, memory lapses.
When studies have been perform on patients with Alzheimer’s Disease scientist have found that patients have high concentration (10-30 times the normal) of Aluminum in their systems.
Studies were conducted in order to find out if people who drink water with high concentrations of aluminum had a higher risk at developing Alzheimer’s Disease. These studies did show there was an increased risk- HOWEVER, studies have been done where individuals drank water without being treated with aluminum and found the same risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
These two test indicate that there may be genetic reasons why some individuals develop Alzheimer’s.
Studies performed on patients have not found a common factor in the development of Alzheimer’s Disease
Scientist do not know if Alzheimer’s Disease causes higher concentrations of aluminum, or if it is caused by high concentrations of aluminum.
Smoking Using Aluminum Foil
Most brands of aluminum foil (Renoyld’s Wrap with the anti-stick coating and similar brands being the exception), are untreated and remain 99.9% aluminum (again with the .1% being residues and other agents in the manufacturing process)
In order to inhale aluminum it would have to be changed from a solid to a vapor. This requires a lot of heat. More heat than what it produced by a butane lighter. A butane lighter is not even capable of melting aluminum, if a lighter fails to melt the aluminum, it will not be able to change the aluminum into a vapor.
I put this together so individuals can make an educated decision on if they want to use aluminum foil for smoking marijuana.
