A description of the experience

The following list comes from Dr Duke's phytochemical database.  It shows which plants can take up aluminium.  It is both good news and bad news.

If the plant can take up aluminium - a toxin - and secrete it in a part of a plant that we eat, we are always in danger of eating a toxic plant if the plant has been grown on polluted soil. 

On the other hand the same plants could be used a chelating agents.  In effect grown on polluted land and then after they have absorbed the aluminium buried again in a deep pit and covered, away from any chance of further polution.

Furthermore, if the plant is being grown on unpolluted land and the part we eat can chelate, it may  chelate us of aluminium.

The links take you to Dr Duke's database and away from our site.
