I bought some canned salmon the other day...
Expiration date was 2014. That's the longest expiration date I've seen on some canned foods at your regular grocery store.
Tuna is 2012
Canned vegetables are generally 2010

You are so right!!! My wife always wants to throw out prescriptions
as soon as they hit the expo date. I tell her they just want you to
buy them over and over. They lose a little potency over time, is all.

You have to be careful with bottled water, since you mentioned it, as the plastic will eventually start to leech into the water, and it is filled with carcinogens and other chemicals.
I would imagine aluminum cans do the same thing over a long enough period of time, although I've never heard one way or the other.

Do not ever use aluminum to store water or anything else. Aluminum is A cause of alzheimer's disease. There is aluminum in alot of things we use everyday and part of the problem is we are being over exoposed. Antacids, deodorant, water, and cooking utincils all have aluminum in them. Autoposy of alzheimers victims have shown elevated aluminum in the brain as compared to non alzheimers patients. It isnt the total cause but a piece of the puzzle. After watching my grandmother die with alzheimers we got rid of every thing Aluminum. We use cast iron pans only now and for stomach upset we look for non aluminum based antacids. There are a few deodorants out there if you look hard enough. Just minamise your exposure as much as possible to survive with your brain intact to a ripe old age.
