Years ago I stopped using Teflon to cook with. I still have many friends and family who still use it. I wish they wouldn't. We have enough toxins in the environment to deal with each day. Why add to it by cooking with chemicals which will eventually make you sick. I'm big on stainless steel cookware and am in the process of looking for cast iron. Sure they may be more of a pain to clean, but it's a small price to pay for healthy meals.
"Multiple studies have shown how toxic this stuff is; so would you like a side of polytetrafluoroethylene or perfluorooctanoic acid with your eggs? Did not think so. Teflon is toxic so avoid it at all costs." David Quilty
