And here’s a biggie that most of us probably have lurking in our kitchens… inside the cabinets… waiting to leech into our foods that we consume every evening… I can’t say enough about this poisoning agent:
Perflourinated Componds (PFCS) This bad daddy is found in our nonstick cookware such as Teflon, in food packaging, and all weather textiles. PFCs have been shown to cause cancer growth in certain organs and can be transferred via the placenta and breastmilk.
Although this could be an expensive fix, you don’t have to replace everything all at once. First throw out your nonstick skillets and replace them with TWO (one large and one small) stainless steel or cast iron skillets. That’s really all most families need is two skillets. Next step your saucepans if they are nonstick. Again, stainless steel, and one big soup-pot size and a smaller 2 or 3 quart size is about all most families need. Then check your cookie sheets and casserole pans– my favorite replacement is stoneware from Pampered Chef. I’ve used stoneware for yeeeears and it’s amazing: pizza stone, muffin stone, cookie sheet stone, casserole stone. A couple of my stones are about 20 years old. They last a long time and they’re easy to clean up! Hot water and a scraper!
I’ll come back to write about toxins again sometime, but after this post I think I will research different food alternatives, such as oils, sweeteners etc. We’ve learned what NOT to use, now lets find out what we CAN use!!!
