NON-STICK COOKWARE is beyond dangerous!
Non-stick cook and bakeware has become enormously popular. Not only because of its convenience. Foods slide right off. NO real cleaning is required. But we pay a HIGH price for such a convenience. As the word convenience already states. It’s a convenience. Just like convenience foods. BAD BAD BAD!
Toxic Fumes from Non-Stick Cookware!
One of your favorite kitchen utensils is probably your non-stick cookware. From pots to pans to bakeware you may use your non-stick on a daily basis. Do you know that you may unknowingly be exposing your family to hidden dangers? Non-stick cookware is also made using a carcinogenic chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). So everytime you use your NON-stick cookware it starts emitting toxic fumes that you inhale every time you cook.
Poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are also used to create these surfaces. They are not only toxic BUT also highly persistent, both in your body as well as in the environment.
PFAS are fluorinated chemicals and it is actually the fluorine atoms that provide that hallmark which is known to us as ‘slipperiness’. I’ve known about the toxicity and the dangers of fluoride-impregnated non-stick coatings for a good 20 years and have never even owned such cook or backeware.
At high temperatures, the coating of non-stick cookware will break down into a chemical warfare agent, which is well known as PFIB. and lets not forget to mention that the coating contains a chemical analog of the WWII nerve gas phosgene.
So, what you think is your best friend in the kitchen may actually be one of your family’s worst health enemy. Did you know that it only takes 5 minutes for non-stick cookware emits at least six toxic gases?
Safety over convenience!
Shocking really if you like your non-stick convenience cooking utensils. They are likely to scratch and break at some point, increasing your risk of releasing poison in your home and your body!
- cancers associated with PFOA
- flu-like diseases caused by inhaling fumes from non-stick cookware
- effects of PFOA to expecting women
- the deadly illness that causes poisoning in birds and other species
- toxic for neurology system and other organs
……to name but a few!
I love cooking and preparing meals. It is a labor of love. Using non-stick cookware has turned that labor into a hazard. We should be taking in the delicious, succulent aroma of food, but instead you are inhaling toxic fumes.
So, the choice is yours and what are you going to do about it?
You can choose to continue using your toxic non-stick cook and bakeware. Or you can get rid of it and start living a healthy lifestyle.
I know what I’d do. Choose my health over convenience.
