Aluminium is a fascinating metal. Stainless, light and a small reaction time, it is used as fireworks and rocket fuel, as cosmetica and medicine.

    • Synopsis
    • Not even a century ago Aluminium was largely unknown. Now it’s almost everywhere: We drink out of aluminium-cans. Our cars have alloy rims. We use it to clean up the water we drink. We apply it on our bodies when we use cosmetics, deodorants or sun cream. We even inject aluminium-adjuvants into the muscles of our youngest in vaccinations.
      The Aluminium-Industry booms - but also draws a lot of criticism because of pollution and the enormous amounts of energy it needs. Now more and more evidence shows that aluminium could be the long sought “environmental factor” that plays a role in the genesis of diseases like Alzheimer‘s and other plagues of modern civilisation.
