Abstract

Only a few of the large number of papers on aluminum in nutrition have considered the effect of this element on reproduction and lactation. McCollum, Rask, and Becker (1), Myers and Mull (2), Lyman and Scott (3), and MacKenzie (4) reported no ill effects on reproduction and lactation from the addition of aluminum to the diet. The amounts of the element ingested varied from 0.02 per cent to 0.12 per cent, usually as potassium or sodium aluminum sulphate; although McCollum and co-workers employed A1Cl3 as the source of Al. Schaeffer and co-workers (5), using alum phosphate baking powder in bread, reported a decrease in the number of young mice born and a detrimental effect on the growth of rats and chickens.
