New research now shows that plants are being poisoned by aluminium, casting further doubt on government and medical assurances that ingestion of the metal is harmless to humans.
The study by renown Japanese scientist Yoko Yamamoto, of Okayama University showed that aluminium poisoned plants (in this case tobacco) by stunting the roots which kills them.
The research paper by Yoko (a great friend of the world authority on aluminium, Professor Christopher Exley, of Keele University) entitled Aluminum toxicity in plant cells: Mechanisms of cell death and inhibition of cell elongation, can be viewed at: https://doi.org/10.1080/00380768.2018.1553484
