Aluminum vs. Aluminium[edit]

Moved to Talk:Aluminium/Spelling#Aluminum_vs._Aluminium

In Canada the usual spelling is Aluminium although both are used. See, for example, [1] and [2]. The two small references to spelling in Canada need correcting accordingly.

Strange unit[edit]

Under "Health concerns" there is written:

there is evidence of some toxicity if it is consumed in amounts greater than 40 mg/kg/day.

The unit mg/kg/day does not make sense. I would expect an amount per unit of time. Can someone check this? There is a reference, but I do not have access to the paper. Hulten (talk 16:21, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Seems clear as mg/kg of body mass/day. Vsmith (talk) 21:45, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
Okay, this is clear now. Other people may also not understand, so I clarified it in the article. Hulten (talk) 11:22, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
