EPA asks companies to eliminate Teflon™ precursor output

Teflon™, the product used to make nonstick cookware, includes a chemical called PFOA(perfluorooctanoic acid), which has a long half-life in the body (detectable levels for four years), and can cause health problems. The EPA is asking companies to cut output.

I regret having bought cookware with this compound (not as a result of this article, but from earlier investigations). If you use such cookware, beware of cooking at high temperatures.
