Aluminium is in our anti-perspirants, soaps, and in our baked goods also. It is suspected in old-timers' disease, but the aluminium industry poo-poos that idea.
Tums® and Rolaids® are calcium carbonate; the human body cannot absorb calcium in this form. It is totally useless as a calcium supplement. You can use it to write on the sidewalk, though, since that is what chalk is.

How much aluminum did she get from that?
As you can see... I'm still angry about it... and the more I read the angrier I get. I am hoping that the research I do will help my process it and learn to move forward.
