February, 2018, HARVARD STUDY ON THE HEALTH DANGERS OF NON-STICK COOKWARE
“non-stick” pots and pans.
In February, Harvard researchers published a massive study involving over 600 people, ranging from age 30 to 70.
And even though they ALL ate a healthy diet… stunningly, some volunteers actually gained weight.
Those who were exposed to non-stick cookware had a slower metabloism.1
Why did this happen?
It all boils down to a nasty gang of chemicals: PFAS.
PFAS officially stands for perfluoroalkyl substances
PFAS go airborne, so we inhale them.
When they get into the bloodstream they can last up to 9 years! (study #3 below)
PFAS are man-made chemicals. They have been used in non-stick cookware, water-repellent clothing, stain resistant fabrics and carpets, some cosmetics, and grease resistant products.
Studies have shown that PFAS at high levels created changes in the function of the liver, thyroid, pancreas and hormone levels.
The 100% ceramic cookware from Xtrema is free of lead, cadmium, heavy toxic metals, PFOA and PTFE. It also doesn’t have any unsafe non-stick coating, which can scratch and flake off into your food and get into the air you breathe. You can learn more, and purchase them HERE.
