Dr. Joseph Mercola, the natural health expert and bestselling author who founded Mercola.com in 1997, emphasizes the “varied, irreversible risks” of using metal and non-stick cookware.

Non-stick cookware has been previously implicated in higher incidence of cancer in the liver, pancreas, testicles, and mammary glands, as well as thyroid problems and an impaired immune system.
“Aluminum, found in most metal cookware, has also been considered as a causal factor in Alzheimer’s disease,” he reveals.
