Teflon Cookware Dangers Documented - The Devil We Know 2018 - The Chemistry Of A Cover Up Documentary Movie -  Why Nonstick Cookware is Harming Your Health - Types of Cookware That Are Much Safer To Use - PFOA Polytetrafluorethylene, PTFE, Perfluorooctanoic Acid, PFAS, PFAS



TOXIC TEFLON? 


Poofy Organics by Sweet Melissa's Non stick pans are coated with Teflon which contains perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) made by the biotech company DuPont.


When heated it leaks into your food and after a while of use starts peeling up and specks of it stick to your food and get consumed. Ever made eggs in a non stick pan and notice the tiny specks of black from your pan in them? Yikes.

This coating is extremely toxic and any level of exposure to it is dangerous to brain health, reproductive health and the immune system. It also has links to cancer. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) categorizes this chemical in the same league as asbestos and lead. 

If you own any Teflon coated pans I urge you to toss them immediately. There are safer alternatives!!! Buy stainless steel pots and pans or cast iron pans.

LIES OF BIG INDUSTRY, WHICH LEADS TO MORE BIG C


EVER USED TEFLON COOKWARE? … THIS IS A ‘MUST SEE’ DOCO IF YOU ARE CONCERNED AT ALL ABOUT YOUR HEALTH, THE LIES OF BIG INDUSTRY & THE BIG ‘C’
Don’t believe the lies of big industry when they tell you something is safe. Look for the proof it’s been tested. Unfortunately these behemoths are not required to test their products thoroughly in fact you are their guinea pigs. Like Monsanto (now morphed into Bayer) telling us glyphosate / Roundup are safe as dish liquid in the ’70s & in spite of all the independent research they still drag their feet & deny. 

DuPont in this instance after a 7 year long challenge to their fake science they were forced to withdraw the offending chemical in Teflon ware … however … not to be defeated they’ve produced another chemical, like its predecessor not fully tested and on it goes. These giants are like slippery two headed snakes, they will get you one way or another. Profits matter, you don’t. Watch also The Corporation doco. An expose of the lies.

THE CHEMISTRY OF A COVER UP DOCUMENTARY MOVIE


The Devil We Know 2018 - The Chemistry Of A Cover Up Documentaries
VIDEO: https://youtu.be/Zjs3hsIFCHw  1 hour 29 min.

THE EPA AND PENTAGON DOWNPLAYED, IGNORED, DENIED OR SUPPRESSED A TOXIC THREAT, BECAUSE IT WOULD THREATEN PROFITS OR POWER


How the EPA and the Pentagon downplayed a growing toxic threat
The PFAS compounds might not exist if weren’t for a lab accident in 1938, when a frozen block of refrigerant turned into an extraordinarily slippery white, waxy mass. A decade later DuPont was manufacturing it as Teflon. 3M developed its own version, the molecularly similar PFOA in 1954, when a chemist inadvertently spilled a mixture of chemicals on her shoe and found the stain was impervious to soap or water. They called it Scotchgard.

These products work, in part, because the chemicals they contain are made up of some of the strongest and most resilient molecular bonds in existence, thanks to a unique structure that keeps them from breaking down. There are thousands of variations, all characterized by extremely strong daisy chains of carbon and fluorine molecules and differentiated mostly by the length of their “tails” — the string of carbon molecules that can be anywhere from two to 14 units long.

In the mid-1970s, with the use of the chemicals proliferating, Dupont and 3M began privately testing the blood of their plant workers and others. The companies had grown increasingly concerned about the toxicity of PFAS compounds, learning that they “bio-accumulate” in food and people and that they could cause harm. But it wasn’t until 2000, when 3M pulled Scotchgard from the market, that the EPA began to investigate PFAS’s potential damage to human health and the environment, and soon after, that the blood tests became public.


My Health Tips PLEASE NEVER USE TEFLON..

I know cooking and cleaning with Teflon is so easy, but it is full of Toxic Materials. They are Carcinogen Chemicals, So Dangerous for Our Health

The nonstick coating used in DuPont’s Teflon® pans has been found to release one or more of 15 different Toxic Gases (These Toxic Gases affect your pets so easy, Especially Your Birds ) when heated to certain temperatures, but is generally safe when used according to manufacturers' specifications. Which chemicals are released depends on the temperature of the pan. This outgassing can be fatal to pet birds and can cause "polymer fume flu," also known as "Teflon® flu," in humans.

Teflon® flu creates flu-like symptoms of chills, headache, fever and nausea. Usually, symptoms subside within a few days, and chances are many people who have experienced it mistook it for the flu. However, there are also more serious risks.

One of the main chemicals used in the manufacturing process of Teflon® and other nonstick pans is perflurooctanoic acid (PFOA) also known as C-8. This chemical has led to Cancer and birth defects in lab animals, and may have led to birth defects in DuPont plant workers. In 2005, an independent panel reporting to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared PFOA a likely human Carcinogen.

Talon Toys Remember with all the baking and cooking this holiday season, NEVER USE this very dangerous and deadly cookware! Teflon pots and pans have PFOA a toxic chemical that is released into the air when you cook with it, parrots have dropped dead from this! PTFE stands for polytetrafluoroethylene. It is known by the brand name Teflon. Exposure to PTFE fumes causes flu-like symptoms in humans and almost certain death in birds because of their sensitive respiratory systems. When using pots and pans look for PTFE and PFOA FREE 

PFOA stands for perfluorooctanoic acid (also known as C-8), a petroleum based product. It is a carcinogenic chemical used to bond the nonstick coating to the pan. NEVER TAKE THE RISK! Look for stainless steel or ceramic, even stone pots and pans, cast iron is another wonderful replacement. Also beware of self cleaning stoves as they release fumes at high heat. Cook safe. There is Teflon in hair dryers, toasters, toaster ovens, and irons. Air freshener and candles are also a NO NO! Their very sensitive lungs can not handle them!

REMOVING CHEMICALS LINKED TO TEFLON LIKE COATINGS, LEADS TO FEWER LOW BIRTH WEIGHT BABIES, AND LESS BRAIN DAMAGE, ACCORDING TO STUDY


REMOVING CHEMICAL USED TO MAKE TEFLON-LIKE COATINGS HAS LED TO FEWER LOW BIRTH WEIGHTS AND LESS BRAIN DAMAGE, STUDY SUGGESTS
Scientists behind the research, conducted at NYU School of Medicine, say that studies have long linked the chemicals — famous for keeping food from sticking to pans — with high blood pressure, birth defects, and lower-than-normal birth weights. These damaging health effects were major factors behind a 2006 agreement between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and American manufacturers to curtail and eventually eliminate the harmful chemicals’ production in 2014.

The study authors estimate that the drop in chemically linked low-birth weight babies saved the nation at least $13.7 billion by reducing infant hospital stays and the number of children in need of long-term care after cognitive damage; and by improving the prospects of children going on to achieve higher education levels and get better-paying jobs.

WHY NON STICK COOKWARE IS HARMING YOUR HEALTH


Alternative Healing and Health Why Nonstick Cookware is Harming Your Health
If you use nonstick pots and pans regularly, you’re probably exposing yourself and your family to toxic fumes. Nonstick cookware coating is manufactured using perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA, which is a carcinogenic chemical. The finished nonstick coating itself is called polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE). PTFE is more commonly known by the trademark name Teflon.

When you heat up PTFE coated pots and pans, PFOA can be released in the form of toxic fumes. Inhaling PFOA fumes can cause health problems such as testicular, pancreatic, mammary or liver tumors, abnormal hormone levels and thyroid damage.

Types of Cookware You Can Use: 

1. Cast iron

They can be a little tough to clean, but if you care for them properly, they’ll last pretty much forever. When cooking with quality fats and oils, your pan will become seasoned and food won’t stick to it. Plus, you get the added bonus of adding a little bit of iron to your diet. Find cast iron cookware here:http://amzn.to/1qzjLev
Enameled Cast Iron is also safe to cook with, colorful, long lasting and more nonstick than plain cast iron. Here are some good ones:http://amzn.to/1joQLAN

2. Stainless steel

Stainless steel is somewhat heavy duty and is a much safer metal to use for cooking than aluminum.

3. Ceramic

Crock pots/ slow cookers are made of glazed ceramic or porcelain. 
The slow cooker is another beloved favorite in my kitchen. The glaze makes ceramic cookware nonstick as well. Just make sure you do a little research before purchasing to make sure your brand doesn’t use glaze that contains lead. It’s unlikely that ceramics made in the USA will use lead glaze, but better safe than sorry. Here’s a great set:http://amzn.to/VrYbhL

4. Glass

Glass doesn’t leach any wacky ingredients into your food. I like to use glass bowls that work well for mixing ingredients, cooking and storing leftovers. I also like to bake in my glass casserole pan.
For people who hate to give up their non-stick frying pans and there is good news. People are starting to wake up to the dangers of traditional nonstick cookware and searching for safer options. There are several different brands of safe non-stick cookware available that claim to use environmentally friendly and nontoxic nonstick technology. Orgreenic is one of the best: http://amzn.to/1o7R1Zh
