Synopsis:

Aluminum is booming and found its way into every facet of our lives: deodorants, sun lotions, vaccines or filtered drinking water. But what do we actually know about the side effects of our daily companions? The light metal comes with heavy consequences. Latest research links it to the increase in Alzheimer's, breast cancer and food allergies. The complicated mining of aluminum is also an ecological issue.
