Fluoride-coated Frying Pans

If you are cooking your food in those convenient, non-sticking Teflon pans, you should know that you are cooking your food on fluoride. Fluoride is a very harmful man-made substance that sabotages and compromises health. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
If you are cooking your food in those convenient, non-sticking Teflon pans, you should know that you are cooking your food on fluoride.

Fluoride is a very harmful man-made substance that can compromise your health.


Chemicals

Fluoropolymers, the substances used to make Teflon pans, release a persistent gas when heated to high temperatures. They release compounds called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), trifluoroacetate, (TFA) and polyfluorocarboxylic acids (PFOs).

Even though these breakdown chemicals are generally considered non-toxic, it can be dangerous because they may cause long-term health effects as they accumulate in the body.

The good news is that Teflon will only breakdown into these harmful compounds if the cooking temperature exceeds 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Normally, home cooking does not often get that high but we should always take a precautionary approach when using Teflon frying pans and other non-stick cooking ware.


Alternatives

Look for cookware that holds heat well, prevents scorching and sticking, and has a heavy bottom.

Cast iron has been known as the first nonstick surface, requiring minimum fat and less cleaning. Some iron is actually released into the food but this isn't always a bad thing. Most Americans are low in iron so this isn't usually a health concern.

Stainless steel is another great alternative to Teflon pans. It is durable, long lasting, and is great for healthy cooking. Stainless steel is very accessible and there are many varieties of shapes and sizes.

Made of a combination of metals, stainless steel is durable and long lasting. Stainless steel cookware may have aluminum in the bottom of the pan but it is not a health problem as long as it is not in contact with the food.

Anodized aluminum cookware is sealed so the base metal (aluminum) doesn't enter the food prepared in it. The only drawback is that it must be hand-washed, even after the toughest, messiest cooking, as the anodization is corrupted when it comes in contact with commercial brand dishwashing machine detergents.

Ceramic cookware can be useful in some circumstances, such as baking and slow cooking. It's a nice alternative for people who like the heat distribution of cast iron, but hate the long seasoning process.

Be careful not to scratch the stainless steel because it can result in the harmful release of nickel or chromium.

Artificial Ingredients in Coca-Cola Marketed as Natural is Misbranding and Illegal

If there’s one thing most people would agree on, it’s that a soda is not the embodiment of “natural.” But that’s just what Coca-Cola is suggesting in recent advertising campaigns—that its original formula soda, laden with high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients, is natural; and now disgruntled customers have sued the brand.

The suit, filed by two Massachusetts residents, says that the brand has been portraying its sodas as “natural” despite the presence of artificial ingredients, some of which are linked with serious health problems.

According the plaintiffs, the company’s soda sales are being “fueled by false and deceptive representations that Coca-Cola is not only a healthy product, but one free of artificial flavoring and chemical preservatives,” they state in the lawsuit. “All containers of Coca-Cola sold in the United States are misbranded and illegal.”

7 Great Vegan Restaurants in LA

As a cardiologist and a strong advocate of plant-based nutrition (it's the only diet ever shown to reverse existing heart artery blockages), I was more than a little excited when a friend called a few weeks ago and asked if I wanted to go to dinner with Brian Wendel, the executive producer of the smash hit Forks Over Knives. I'm such a fan of this documentary about veganism that I require my patients to watch it with their families.

My wife and I were recently in Los Angeles for 24 hours (I had a brief business meeting) and we were excited to check out the city's vegan offerings. So I did some research and decided to plan a marathon tasting.
