Next to oxygen and silicon, aluminum is the most common element on this planet's surface. Studies of potential carcinogenics in aluminum workers have been reported to be equivocal, and consequently can give rise to serious global concern. However, studies have not taken into consideration smoking histories. Also a review of published articles suggests that the conclusions have been unduly conservative, and that criteria for causation have not been met.
