Plastic liner inside aluminum drink cans?

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV

The plastic keeps you from getting so much soluble aluminum which is associated with Alzheimer's.  It also gives the can a little more strength.

Fascinating!  Who knew!  I wonder if the plastic interferes with the recyclability of the can. 
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

Good question! I am going to make a guess.  Maybe slightly? I am guessing when the aluminum is melted the minute amount of plastic is burned away and what little is left will become impurities which will be filtered in the recycling process.. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Adding: Until this video, I never knew there was a plastic lining in drink cans.
