By Steve Miller, NBC NewsPublished May 13, 2018 12:01:50A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found aluminum is the leading environmental toxin in the United States.
Aluminum is used as an ingredient in many consumer products, including aluminum foil and aluminum-coated steel.
Aluminum also plays a role in manufacturing, transportation and manufacturing-related industries, including aircraft, computers and electronics, and the aluminum industry.
The CDC study found that aluminum in consumer products is the second most toxic metal after lead, with an estimated 1,000 tons of aluminum in the U.S. annually.
Aluminum has been linked to respiratory problems, liver damage, neurological disorders and cancer.
It is found in more than 20 different products, according to the CDC.
Aluminum is also used in construction materials, but that is a problem.
An estimated 17.7 billion pounds of aluminum used for construction was shipped to the U., which accounted for nearly a third of all the aluminum shipped to North America in 2020, according the CDC’s National Survey of Environmental Health.
The United States imported approximately 30 million tons of aluminosilicate, or alumina, for use in aluminum.
Aluminum oxide, also called alumina oxide, is used in the manufacture of certain electrical components, including copper wire, aluminum sheet and aluminum foil.
Alumina oxide is also found in many types of food and beverages, including beer, coffee, soft drinks, soft cheese, ice cream, cheese products, yogurt and cheese-based desserts.
Alumina is also present in some of the more commonly consumed beverages, such as tea, tea flavored soft drinks and coffee beverages.
The CDC study also found that the majority of aluminum compounds found in food and beverage products are not carcinogenic.
Aluminium has also been linked with neurological disorders, especially attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.
Some researchers have linked aluminum’s toxic effects to a chemical called cadmium.
Cadmium is also an environmental pollutant and a possible neurotoxin.
The National Toxicology Program reported that there were 2,813 cases of cadmial poisoning and 2,903 cases of attention-related poisoning in the nation’s cities in 2016.
