Orgreenic Pans: Fear-based kitchen goods

Orgreenic Pans: Fear-based kitchen goods

There's really nothing to fear from Teflon or aluminum.

There is only one reason why anyone would buy a set of Orgreenic pans, and that is a fear of something which is unproven at best: that your kitchen pans can kill you. There are two main fears here. The first is from Teflon pans. 

It is true that Teflon flakes off in microscopic particles over the years as you use it. However, it is not proven that Teflon is absorbed into your blood stream when you eat these tiny flakes. In fact, given the fact that they are actually tiny pieces of metal, it is a lot more likely that they are simply - ahem - "passed through your system intact."
 
A potentially greater concern is the PFOA which is used to make the Teflon stick to the pan itself. PFOA is a carcinogen, and it is present in low levels in the blood of most Americans. But it is "not likely" that this exposure comes from pans. In fact, most of the PFOA is burned off in the process of manufacture. 

The second fear is from aluminum pans. This cheap metal which offers wonderful heat conductivity is also (in many people's minds) linked to Alzheimer's disease. There are a lot of people who avoid soda in cans and aluminum pans due to fears of Alzheimer's. This was a line of investigation during the 50s and 60s, but it has long since failed to pan out (except in the thriving crackpot community).
 
Finally you have the issue of exposure. How many meals do you actually cook in a pan? And how much time does your food spend in the pan, when you do cook? Let's say the average American has 21 meal opportunities per week. 5 of those will be weekday breakfasts, and 5 will be weekday lunches. That's half your meals right there that you're probably not cooking on the stove. Out of the remaining 11 meals, how many were cooked on the stove, and how many were simply microwaved or assembled out of pre-packaged convenience food? How many of those meals were frozen pizza or McDonald's cheeseburgers?
 
My point being, you have a lot more to fear from the stuff you eat that you DIDN'T cook on the stove than you do from any perceived threat from Teflon or aluminum.
 
Where was I? Oh right: ceramic pans. There's really no need to spend that much money. The pans you already have are fine, trust me. Get stainless steel pans if you feel you must avoid Teflon and aluminum. This manufactured fear of "food sticking to the pan" is ridiculous. Worst case scenario, soak it and give it a good scrubbing.
