Toxins in fast food wrappers leach into your food.
Do you remember hearing all about the dangers of Teflon? Coated with PFOA (a known carcinogen) the non-stick pots that many were using to try to cook more healthfully suddenly became a toxic concern when research about the dangers of the PFOA coating became mainstream news.
As a result millions of home cooks eschewed non-stick pans altogether, choosing instead to cook with good old cast iron, ceramic-coated pans and stainless steel.
Fast forward 10 years and the concern that we all thought was regulated out of existence (many manufacturers voluntarily agreed to remove PFOA from their non-stick formula) has reached the popular media again.
(I should add that there was always concern that the replacements for PFOA - referred to as PFCS or PFAS for short - could be equally toxic, it’s just that he research hadn’t caught up with the compounds.)
But back to the fast food concern…
