Cooking with aluminum foil is being found to contribute to alzheimer's (sp?).

I too have read about that. One thing I read mentioned, drinking from cans, eating Rolaids and using aluminum pots and pans.
Kubota L-4200, Ford 8N, S-10 4WD Beater truck, Chainsaw, Bush Hog, couple ATV's and 141 acres of trees I'm not sure what to do with but I sure do have fun and enjoy being in the woods!

On this last topic, My mom cooked with aluminum pots and frying  pans ll my young life.
This was also a topic in the 90's.
But neither my dad nor me or my 2 brothers have any symptoms so far.
Dad died just short of 89 not from Alzheimer's .
Mom at 81
My moms sister and her mother also had Alzheimer's
But I' m still going to eat em any way I can.
Heading to my Adirondack camp tomorrow morning for the week end and will tak e the last one from our stash.

Pete, I have some EXTRA if you'd like some, let me know!

When you're at the camp, we're only about 5-6 miles apart!

I thought I had already replied to this, Ah well, maybe too much aluminum!

My mother used to say it isn't I true Vidalia onion unless its grown within 20 miles of Vidalia.

That is correct from a labeling and marketing standpoint.  There is a defined geographic area.

Like to make blomming onions with them. Sliced from one end, spread open, battered, and deep fried. Can make a meal of a big one.
Old doesn't bother me, its the ugly that's a real bummer.
