Burning aluminum foil produces toxic fumes?

Postby kenan » Wed Jun 27, 2012 10:52 am

I felt bored and stuck a piece of aluminum foil into the flame of a candle. My friend told me that it produces toxic fumes that cause cancer or something. Is this true? If so, what other harmful things does it do?
