Teflon Chemical May Harm Thyroid

From Mary Shomon's About.com Thyroid newsletter, yet ANOTHER reason to get teflon out of your house (try cookware like Le Creuset instead!)

Don't forget that the thryoid is one of the most important glands for fertility and you have to be nice to it!
----------------------------------

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is focusing attention on a new study that has found that PFOA, a chemical used to make Teflon, food wrappers and other products, may be dangerous to health. The study, which looked at 69,000 people in West Virginia and Ohio who live near a DuPont manufacturing plant where the chemical is used, found that the chemical may harm the immune system, liver and thyroid and cause raise cholesterol levels in children.

In addition to various health concerns, the study found that "thyroid function was clearly affected in PFOA-exposed people, with the effect strongest at moderate levels of exposure, rather than the highest exposures."

Read about the study now.

Thanks, Sara! Yeah, we don't need to buy toothpaste, shampoo, etc. We just use baking soda. Got rid of all our gadgets like the microwave. Doesn't any easier than that!
