Going back to an article I wrote about the evils of Teflon cookware some months ago I feel vindicated today by this new research out from Uppsala University in Sweden.
To sum it up the article said over 1000 elderly people were tracked and all of them showed these synthetic compounds (like the ones found in Teflon type non-stock cookware) in their blood samples.
The article says "Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) was also associated with diabetes in this group. We also saw that PFOA was linked to disrupted secretion of insulin from the pancreas,"
The study raises the question of whether high levels of certain perfluorinated compounds ... are linked to the development of diabetes."
Advice from me - please get rid of your teflon based cookware. It is linked to both cancer and diabetes !
