Alaskans use aluminum foams as a popular deodorizer for a variety of reasons, but one of the most popular is the fact that aluminum is used in all types of products, from clothing to cars to electronics to even paper.
Alaskas environmental group says aluminum foam is a serious environmental hazardIn a new study published in the journal Nature Materials, scientists have found that aluminum foaming is more than just a cosmetic problem.
Aluminum foams can cause severe acid-base changes in aquatic environments, including in seawater, which can affect the health of fish and other marine life.
Aluminum is used by the general public to create many types of deodorizers, but it is not used to deodorize aluminum as a component of a deoderant.
In fact, aluminum foamed products can actually lead to more acid-based chemicals and harmful levels of chemicals in the water.
Alas, this chemical pollution is becoming increasingly widespread.
In addition to affecting fish and aquatic life, aluminum-coated aluminum foamy products are also known to damage the aluminum lining on aluminum frames and cans.
These canals can then contribute to a wide variety of marine health problems, including shellfish contamination, pollution of rivers and lakes, and other problems.
The researchers say that because aluminum foil has been used for many decades as a decorative and decorative product, it is time for consumers to be aware of the environmental risks posed by aluminum foamer products.
The study found that the aluminum coating of aluminum foames caused acid-related damage to the water surrounding the aluminum foame, causing algae growth, algae blooms, and the release of toxic algal toxins into the surrounding environment.
The study found aluminum foamiates have a wide range of toxic and chemical impacts on aquatic ecosystems, which may include the following:More about aluminum, deodorizing, water, alaskas, acid source ABC News articleAlaska is the fourth state in the country to ban aluminum-free deodorization products, following California, Florida, and Oregon.
This week, a new federal rule is expected to ban the use of aluminum-based deodor products, but the regulations are not expected to take effect until 2020.
