Abstract
Review of over 800 references on aluminum published since the mid- fities covering the occurrence of aluminum in soil, air, water, plants and food products, as well as air and water pollution problems, and the existing quality criteria, biology and toxicology of aluminum and its therapeutic and medical uses. It is concluded that absorption and retention or accumulation of aluminum in humans occurs at lower levels of intake than had been assumed formerly, although levels of 5 to 50 times the normal daily intake do not appear to interfere with other metabolic processes. The adverse effects of aluminum reported in the more recent years resulted from the inhalation or ingestion of aluminum in concentrations many times greater than the amounts present under normal circumstances. As in the past, there is still no need for concern by the public or producers of aluminum or its products concerning hazards to human health derived from well established and extensively used products.
