Dear Heloise: I’ve recently read a couple of articles on the dangers of cooking with aluminum. We’ve used aluminum foil on our grill for several years. Is this really something to be concerned about? -- Lynn N., Beaverton, Oregon Lynn, the main worry with aluminum foil is that it can leach aluminum into foods that are cooked with it, especially when foods are being cooked at high temperatures. There’s been research done on this problem. One of the studies found that when an item, such as a fish, is wrapped in aluminum foil, it goes from an aluminum- concentration factor of Acidic ingredients, such as tomatoes, lemon juice, vinegar or salt, seemed to increase the amount of aluminum that gets leached into the food. Not only did this apply to meat, fish and chicken, but it also applied to vegetables cooked with aluminum foil as well. Grilling vegetables is fine, so long as they are not grilled on an aluminum sheet.
