Now, a new study has revealed that cooking food in tinfoil can risk your 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 Organization," she said. Bassioni explained that pots and pans are also lined with aluminium but these tend to be oxidized. They have a layer, which prevents aluminium finding its way into our food.
