Is food wrapped in an aluminium foil safe for consumption?
Q: I am pursing a sponsored higher education programme in Delhi. I daily take food wrapped in an aluminium foil. I want to know whether this will have any adverse affects on my health?
A:Absolutely not, unless you eat the aluminium foil. Eating foil is an unusual form of pica and this may require psychiatric management as well as medical or surgical methods to retrieve the foil for more appropriate ecologic management of this non-biodegradable product.
