  7. Great set as usual with fun company then my muse asked me Is aluminum harmful to the environment? so joy and love I share with you.
    Large parts of both the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems are affected.In the aquatic environment, aluminium acts as a toxic agent on gill-breathing animals such as fish and invertebrates, by causing loss of plasma- and haemolymph ions leading to osmoregulatory failure.
