Almost 70% of the dishes contain a layer containing PFOA which means perfluorooctanoic acid (so -called non-stick pans), and other compounds which are also used to make garments resistant to spots. Many scientists and studies agreed that these non-stick pans are detrimental to your health. When the non-stick pans are heated, they release toxin in the air in your kitchen. When they are heated to 680 degrees, they release six toxic gases.
When making non-stick metal plates, materials and substances marked with PFAS are used. All these toxic vessels are characterized by the so- called "non-stick coating", which provides the food to burn or stick to the bottom.
Recent studies show that some kinds of PFASs cause severe liver toxicity, disruption of metabolism and immunity disorders. Also these can cause several types of cancer (cancer testis and kidney cancer). It is also considered that the toxins impede the baby while it is in the uterus.
Unfortunately, these toxins are not transmitted only on the food, they are also spread in the air, drinking water, earth and they pollute the entire environment.
What is more alarmingly is the fact that vessels heated on 1000 degrees emit the harmful agent PFIB (perfluoroisobutene). These toxins can be accumulated in the blood, and can lead to chronic disease.
In order to avoid this non – stick pans, it is the best to use ceramic or glass cookware. Experts say that consumers should be aware of the potential health risk when using products containing perfluorooctanoic acid.
