Is Your Cookware Increasing Your Breast Cancer Risk?

Have you ever thought about your cookware increasing your risk for Breast Cancer?  Modern cookware is designed to support our fast pace lifestyle:  "no-mess and easy to clean". However, that "no-stick and easy-clean-up" comes with a high price.
Nonstick cookware is manufactured with a chemical called PFOA or C8.

The EPA is now investigating PFOA because

  1. It  is very persistent in the environment
  2. It is found in 98% of the blood of the general US population
  3. It causes developmental and other adverse reactions in laboratory animals
