The Age of Aluminium [Documentary]

Throughout the history of mankind, we've been coming up with new ways of doing things, discovering new materials, new technologies...

With our limited understanding and very limited capacity for inquiry into impact of such materials/technologies might have on the environment and ourselves, we've been subjecting ourselves to dangerous substances, for decades unknowingly making the our daily lives a huge experiment.

I think we all remember a highly toxic substance called asbestos, used in fire retardant coatings, concrete, bricks, pipes and fireplace cement, heat, fire, and acid resistant gaskets, pipe insulation, ceiling insulation, fireproof drywall, flooring, roofing, lawn furniture...

There is a huge cost to the environment and our own health with these materials. What saddens me the most is that with the money involved, the truth about the harmful effects rarely reach the people exposed to these materials on a daily basis.
There are people that put the profit, before the health and lives of other people.

I wanted to share a documentary that talks about another of harmful materials. It's called aluminium and is present in deodorants, food, cars, cooking utensils, baking trays, pots and pans, vaccines, medicaments... It's everywhere...

I would advise everyone to get acquainted with the subject. Whether You want to keep using products containing harmful materials is up to You. All I want is that You have the awareness and are able to choose for Yourself.
