My fav monkey Aaron aka Stacks who is almost 10, shared a video about McDonalds burger that is 4 years old. Watch the link to believe it! the burger looks just like me! Hardly aged :)
Today I used a non stick pan and a plastic spatula to cook. ( Couch surfing in Queens, hence not my kitchen)
Have I gone mad? Last year I replaced my cookware(non stick and Aluminium) with Stainless steel and Corningware Ceramic. Replacing your cookware can be costly, so my options were thrift stores. Anyways here's why you should not use non stick and Aluminium cookware.
Non Stick Pans Health Risk
Aluminium Health Risk:
Exposures to aluminum through food can occur when aluminum leaches or otherwise dissolves from the cookware into the food. Leaching is most likely when the foods being cooked or stored are highly basic (like baking soda) or highly acidic (like tomato sauce, lemon juice, oranges, or vinegar). For example, tomato sauce has been shown to contain 3-6 mg aluminum (per 100 g serving) after cooking in aluminum pans, which translates into about one-tenth of the typical daily intake. This leaching of aluminum with acidic foods does not happen with aluminum cookware that is anodized, or electro-chemically processed to seal the aluminum in the cookware.
