Many people do not realize that the cookware they use may actually be leaching toxins into their bloodstream. This is especially true for people who are trying to eat clean and think healthy cooking means using non-stick cookware. What they don’t realize is that PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic acid), a carcinogenic man-made chemical, is widely used in the production of many non-stick cookware surfaces.
When heated to a high degree or scratched during normal cooking, non-stick cookware can release toxins into the food. The use of non-stick cookware could be a reason PFOA can be found in the bloodstreams of 95% of American men, women and children.
Could the Rise in Cancer Be Related to Environmental Toxins?
Since 1940 the number of cancers has increased in all industrialized countries, and it is a frightening trend that has picked up speed since 1975. Although it would be comforting to blame the rise in cancer to an aging population and more advanced screenings, when you consider a 2004 article published in the prestigious journal Lancet stating that “Cancers in children and adolescents are among those that have risen the most since 1970”, it makes you wonder. I also can’t help but wonder if our environmental exposure to a large number of chemical products that didn’t exist before 1940 might play a role? And, are the environmental toxins that we ingest, such as the ones from non-stick cookware, especially harmful? I have a hunch they might be, which is why I decided to clean up my cookware act and search for the best healthy cookware…

Do You Use Healthy Cookware? If Not, You Could Be Putting Your Family at Risk
It is an added bonus that the best healthy cookware is also the most durable and versatile cookware too! If you watched the scratch test I performed in the video above you surely must have been impressed with how Xtrema cookware did not scratch even when I vigorously scratched it with a spatula (note: although I use a metal spatula in the video, it is best to use a wooden or nylon spatula with your Xtrema cookware since ceramic is harder than metal.) Incredibly, Xtrema is also chip resistant, every bit as easy to clean as non-stick cookware and ten times more versatile; cook with Xtrema on the oven, stovetop, in the broiler, steamer oven, convection oven, and even BBQ grill! You can freeze Xtrema and put it in the dishwasher and microwave too. This really is lifetime cookware that you can feel good about using to cook your family’s meals every day.
