Choosing high-quality, real foods that will nourish and support your health is one of the biggest steps toward vibrant wellbeing that you can take. But did you know, that in these modern lives we live, we’re constantly exposed to a slew of dangerous chemicals, even if we’re eating clean?
From carpets and pillows to cooking pans and even skincare—there are toxins hiding in most of our commonly used everyday household items. Many of these chemicals have been linked to cancer and other major health concerns, yet they’re allowed to be used abundantly in products consumers use and trust.
But don’t freak out. There is a lot you can do to clean up your surroundings and make conscious choices for a healthier home. My friends over at MADE SAFE are on a mission to help consumers understand what kind of chemicals are lurking in their products and how to avoid them, so today I’m going to share some of their helpful tips with you.
Let’s start with PFOA, or perfluorooctanoic acid, a dangerous type of perfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) that is often found in older household goods like Teflon-coated pans, items made out of Gore-Tex or treated with Scotchguard, and stain resistant carpets and furniture. While most industries have begun phasing out PFOA (which is why you’re more likely to see it in older items that you’ve been holding on to) other types of equally toxic PFAS are being used instead.
So, why should you be concerned? Well, one reason is that PFOA is a Persistent Organic Pollutant (POP) and bioaccumulative chemical, meaning it stays in the environment and the human body for long periods of time. It’s also considered an endocrine disruptor, altering the normal processes of your body’s hormones, and possibly causing infertility, not to mention it’s been linked to cancer. Yep, this extremely ubiquitous toxin, found in over 99% of the American population, can have some pretty serious effects.
Here are a few simple tips on reducing your exposure to PFOA and other types of PFAS:
Switch from non-stick cookware to ceramic coated, cast iron, or stainless steel, especially if you see scratches on your non-stick pots and pans.
Try to avoid stain-resistant materials where possible, including clothing, carpets, and furniture.
Avoid food packaging treated with grease-resistant coatings, like those at fast food restaurants.
Look for the MADE SAFE seal, as PFOA is not permitted in products with this certification.
