Teflon Toxicosis

Teflon Toxicosis: "Teflon offgases toxic particulates at 446�F"

Ok, I have heard for a while that Teflon wasn't as nice as advertised. But now I have some serious details. It appear that it doesn't take much to make a teflon pan outgas. Among the gasses outgassed are several fluoride compounds, a nerve gas analog, and some serious poisons. Dupont blows it off as "polymer fume fever" and insists it is temporary.

I for one, am sick of the desperate lengths that industry will go to to make itself look good. It is psycotic behavior.

Another good site, goes into some of the details of the nasty gasses released under pretty typical, and finally some non-typical circumstances.

We have far too many toxins surrounding us. No wonder, as mighty as our nation is, we are so sick.
