Review: Nonstick 9-Piece Pots And Pans Cookware Set, Red
here is what i have to say to the people using non stick crap
well the non stick crap skillets are made from two chemicals called Teflon (hence the brand name T Fal) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA)
Teflon and PFOA have the potential to be a health concern because they can stay in the environment and in the human body for long periods of time.
Studies in laboratories.
Studies on lab animals have found exposure to Teflon and PFOA increases the risk of certain tumors of the liver, testicles, mammary glands, and pancreas . In general, well-conducted studies in animals do a good job of predicting which exposures cause cancer in people.
Studies in humans
Studies in humans have found that people with workplace exposure to PFOA and Teflon have higher risks of bladder and kidney cancers.
The chance of having testicular cancer tended to increase as the level of exposure to Teflon increased. The study also showed a possible link to kidney cancer due to PFDA but this increase in risk was small .
What expert agencies say
Several national and international agencies study different substances in the environment to determine if they can cause cancer. (A substance that causes cancer or helps cancer grow is called a carcinogen.) The American Cancer Society looks to these organizations to evaluate the risks based on evidence from laboratory, animal, and human research studies.
At this time, these agencies have not formally evaluated neither denied whether PFOA and Teflon can cause cancer.
Do they cause other health problems?
The major health effect linked with Teflon is the potential release of dangerous fumes from coated pans that are overheated. These fumes can cause flu-like symptoms in humans (a condition known as polymer fume fever) and can be fatal to birds.
Some studies have suggested that higher than average PFOA blood levels in humans is linked to higher than normal cholesterol levels, thyroid disease, and reduced fertility.
Bon appetit , enjoy your eggs, good luck with chemo and for the guys , i hope you are not planning on having (more) kids .
