Can I ask you something? Can you do me a quick favor? Just go to your kitchen and check your pans, and if you notice the “PFASs” sign, make sure you get rid of them immediately! To be honest with you, this is one of the main reasons why you should never pan fry steaks, fry chips or make pancakes in this pan. The manufacturers claim that this pans are able to prevent the ingredients from sticking and getting burned.
You should know that more than 200 scientists are saying that certain types of food preparation containers, which have the label “non-sticky”, can be very dangerous for our and our family’s health! So, a big group of world experts and scientists, signed the so called “Madrid Document”, with a mutual statement in which they warn the entire humanity how worried they are about the wider use of poly- and Perfluoroalkyl substances every day. You should know that these chemicals are used for manufacturing metal food containers (for example, the packing for fast food and the paper plates or “strengthened” plastic), and are characterized by the so called “non-sticky cover” which prevents the food from sticking to the bottom or burning.
A recent study, conducted on animals, has found that certain types of PFASs can lead to disrupted functioning of the endocrine and immune system, liver poisoning and metabolism weakening. And the bad thing is that these toxins are not only present in the food which is stored or cooked into them, but, also, under the influence of heat, they easily spread in the air, and then from the air to the drinking water, the soil poisoning the entire environment.
Many scientists and medical experts around the world call upon manufacturers of food preparation containers to stop using PFASs chemicals, because we all know that nowadays there are many different alternatives for manufacturing such pans in which the food cannot stick or burn. This is a very simple but very useful advice for all housewives: if you see the above mentioned signs on the food containers which you use, get rid of them once and for all!
