Remove Teflon from your Kitchen

Remove the Teflon from your kitchen. I know it’s convenient but seriously, we need to protect ourselves where we can when we can. Teflon is the non-stick material on many pots and pans and it actually leaches a very harmful chemical into your food. Avoiding consumption of PFOA (perfluorooctanoate) is going to help us stay healthy in an increasingly poisoned world. *A 2005 New York Times article discusses a study where 600 children were tested and a staggering 96% had PFOA in their blood from Teflon. The FDA claims that 90% of adults have the toxic PFOA in their blood.
