Are there any health risks from cooking with non-stick pans?First you should know what the non stick pan is,and How the non-stick pans is made.
According to my knowledge,many non-stick pans is made of non-stick aluminum circle,Non-stick coating or Teflon coating is inert and doesn’t harm your health if it is handled properly.
Teflon coating is manufactured using PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic Acid). This chemical can be hazardous to health. It has been shown to cause cancer (carcinogenic) and suppress immune system in laboratory animals when exposed to them in higher doses.
To be even clear, just using these cookware will not expose you to PFOA. But, when these pans or vessels are over-heated, it’s coating starts to peel off and fumes out. Health problems from such cookware are also linked to the inhalation of these toxic fumes.
When the temperature exceeds 260℃, PTFE will volatilization and it is bad for our health.
