[NH] Is There A Link Between Non-stick Cookware and High Cholesterol In Children

At a time when more and more people are looking for ways to naturally
lower cholesterol levels a study done at the West Virginia University
School of Medicine has shown a link between non stick cookware and
increased cholesterol levels in children and teenagers.

The two chemicals that they link to this are perfluorooctanoic acid
(PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS). These two chemicals are
commonly used to manufacture non-stick cookware and give it the heat
resistant properties that it has. It is also used in microwave cooking
bag and in upholstery to give it waterproof properties. These
chemicals can make their way into the body through breast milk, air,
drinking water and dust.
