Set that is not algebraic

I'd like some hints for the problem:

Show that the following set is not algebraic:

$\{ (\cos(t),\sin(t),t) \in \mathbb{A}^3 : t \in \mathbb{R} \}$

thanks.

Let $A=\{ (\cos(t),\sin(t),t) \in \mathbb{A}^3 : t \in \mathbb{R} \}$. Suppose that $f(x,y,z)\in V(A)$, i.e. $f$ vanishes on $A$. Because $$f(\cos(\theta+2\pi k),\sin(\theta+2\pi k),\theta+2\pi k)=f(\cos(\theta),\sin(\theta),\theta+2\pi k)=0$$ for all $k\in\mathbb{Z}$, we have that for each $\theta\in[0,2\pi)$, the polynomial $f(\cos(\theta),\sin(\theta),z)\in\mathbb{R}[z]$ has infinitely many zeros. What does that imply?
