Aluminum is ubiquitous in our environment; it is the third most prevalent element in the earth's crust. The aluminum we are exposed to is in products we use, such as antiperspirants; in the water we drink; and utensils we use, such as foil and cookware.
People with chronic renal failure, especially if they are on long-term hemodialysis, are particularly susceptible to accumulation of aluminum in their bones.
