Say No to Non-stick!

It was a big hit when it was first

introduced in the market.

I remember my mother being

very much excited about it.

She really used to live it!

It is called -Non Stick and

everyone who would cook would love it for

2 major benefits of non-stick cookware-

  • You need less oil to cook
  • They are easier to clean

However, this convenience comes with a price of your health.

Non-stick cookware are non-stick because, they have a

special coating which prevents oil from getting stick to the cook ware.

Now we know that his coating is made up of toxic chemicals.

Your non-stick pans are coated with

poly and perfluoroalkyl substances.

When you heat them, these fluorinated chemicals are

converted to Perfluorooctanoic acid [PFOA].

This PFOA is having many health hazards like-

  • Infertility
  • Thyroid disease
  • Increased risk of miscarriage up to 16 times

and many more……

As the awareness about the health hazard of

PFOA and Teflon is increasing,

recently some manufacturers claim to have

non-stick which are free of PFOA.

The fact is- they have just replaced PFOA

with few other new substances.

And, they are equally toxic!!

In next Tuesday tip we will discuss which

other cookware you should avoid &,

which cookware are good for your family’s health.

Till then….. take care…..

& stop using Non-Stick cookware!
