London: If you are one of those who regularly uses aluminium foil to keep your food warm and clean, here's a bad news for you, which will make you think twice before using it again – seems metal from the foil can get into your food.

As per a recent report, we shouldn't be cooking with tinfoil as it can risk our health.

In a piece for The Conversation, Ghada Bassioni of the Ain Shams University, Cairo revealed how aluminium foil could be damaging our health, reports the Mirror.

"My research found that the migration of aluminium into food during the cooking process of food wrapped in aluminium foil is above the permissible limit set by the World Health Organisation," she said.

Bassioni explained that pots and pans are also lined with aluminium but these tend to be oxidised. They have a layer, which prevents aluminium finding its way into our food.

She added, "My research found that the migration of aluminium into food during the cooking process of food wrapped in aluminium foil is above the permissible limit set by the World Health Organisation."

Other health studies have suggested high aluminium intake could reduce the growth of brain cells or be harmful to people with bone diseases.

Scientists are currently exploring the link between Alzheimer's patients and high levels of aluminium found in their brain tissue.

Studies have linked high doses of aluminium to osteoporosis and kidney failure.
