I strongly urge you and others NOT to buy pans with teflon and to get rid of the ones you have. All sorts of studies are showing how teflon coating in pans is being released while cooking and getting into humans and our drinking water:
here's an article about how teflon is connected to infertility in men http://wvgazette.com/News/200903040154
Here's an article about how teflon is connected to infertility in women: http://wvgazette.com/News/200901280628
LADIES - please look at this article - showing map of where PFOA one of the chemicals released by teflon - was found in the drinking water - yes, that's in Chicago, Illinois:
How much was in the water - 2.7 to 3.4 parts per billion. What does the EPA recommend - that people reduce consumption of water that contains more than 0.4 parts per billion of C8, also known as perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA. Yes - that's .4. Chicago drinking water has 7 times the amount the EPA recommends as allowable.
The EPA has filed suit against DuPont - one of the makers of teflon - saying that it hid information it had about PFOA and other teflon-related chemicals leaching.
Please, please, for your health and that of your children's and for the environment, do not buy teflon pans anymore. When you buy them you support the demand for companies to keep creating these products, and you risk harming your family and the environment.
