How to Avoid Toxic PFCs

There are many positive things that can be done to minimize exposure to perfluoroalkylated compounds (PFCs), and even to detoxify from them.

The first step is minimizing exposure to PFCs, especially sources that come in contact with high heat — such as nonstick pans.

Other sources of PFCs that should be avoided include:

• Bread makers

• Coffee makers

• Electric skillets

• Hair dryers

• Heat lamp covers

• Hot air corn poppers

• Ironing board covers

• Nonstick irons

• Slow cookers

• Space heaters

• Toaster ovens

• Waffle makers

Not all nonstick items contain PFCs, but manufacturers are not required to label their products with warnings about the chemical.

Therefore, you may need to contact the manufacturer to find out if the product contains Teflon or some other PFC that could be released when heated.

If you are going to use a nonstick PFC pan, it is important to ensure that there is adequate ventilation in the kitchen.

I suggest opening a window and using a fan to blow the fumes outside.

Of course, it’s best to use pots and pans without PFCs. Iron skillets are a better option, and glass cookware can be a reasonable choice. Stainless steel cooking surfaces are fine as well.
