I’ve made videos before and have talked, almost endlessly, how the chemicals used in nonstick pans are dangerous for our health and now a new study have linked high cholesterol with the chemicals in nonstick pans.
The study was done on children and the researchers found that the children who were exposed to the highest amount of these chemicals had measurably higher levels of total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein, LDL or “bad” cholesterol.
The researchers studied perfluorooctanoic acid or PFOA and perfluorooctanesulfonate or PFOS,which enters our bodies through drinking water, dust, food packaging, breast milk, cord blood, microwave popcorn, air and occupational exposure.
There are various studies done on animals have shown that PFOA and PFOS can cause changes in the liver which affects cholesterol.
More then 12,000 children in the Ohio-River Valley had their blood samples tested after drinking PFOA poisoned water. The subjects had total cholesterol 4.6 points higher and LDL 3.8 levels higher.
PFOA and PFOS are known neurotoxins that interfere with cognitive function and now, apparently, cholesterol.
