A friend recently made such a comment on seeing me cook in such a pot. She 
said that Aluminum is not safe to cook in using ingredients which are 
acidic in nature, such as tomatoes, yougart and vinegar, it makes such food 
toxic, if the answer is yes then why do they sell such pots with no warning 
for safe food handeling from the FDA?
