Cooking can be a wonderful way to nourish our bodies with nutrient dense foods while creating a foundation for optimum wellness. However, the cookware we use can make a huge difference.
Did you know that conventional cookware such as nonstick pans, coated pots, Teflon, coated enamel that flakes off, and aluminum leech toxins into our food?
These toxins can have a negative effect on our health.
Every time we cook we are potentially increasing our toxin intake. Yikes! That's not what we want when creating healthy dishes that are meant to nourish our health.
I don’t know about you but I had no idea about any of this 10 years ago when I started trying my hand at eating healthy. You would think buying organic would be enough. Then to find out the cookware is contributing toxins in the body is quite shocking! Are you with me?
Its important to look at all areas of our lifestyle that could potentially contribute to the toxic load of our bodies. This helps our bodies to function better and to not accelerate the aging process.
Non stick cookware contains a manmade chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid which stays in the human body for a long time accumulating and in the air in your home. While aluminum cookware is highly reactive & leaches into food.
It has been shown that these toxins are linked to cancer, liver damage, infertility, delays in growth development, neurotoxicity, high cholesterol, Alzheimer’s, thyroid issues, Inflammation, weakened immune system, allergies, etc.
NONE OF THIS SOUNDS APPEALING TO ME SO I MADE THE SWITCH TO NON TOXIC COOKWARE TO PROTECT MY HEALTH
I am so passionate about this topic and wanted to shed some light in hopes of bringing up a conversation that isn’t readily available in the media and is often overlooked.
