Cause I'm not. I'm scared of my room mate man. I saw her eating pancakes this morning, looked at her pan and man that's ****ing disgusting. The teflon is all scratched off and coming off, it's getting in her food. That stuff is close to the most toxic stuff in consumer products today, why is it still ****ing legal? I ran my finger along it, what did I feel? A soft, fuzzy sensation - sh'es eating that! :yuck: All This toxic **** we use in our daily lives now, and no one's telling us the proper way to use it, I tried telling her that it was unhealthy and she just shook her head and said "I'm not bothered" it's not a problem for her, you see she's been using that pan for years now and it hasn't hurt her since, nevermind that this is coming from a girl with an obsessive-compulsive disorder, who had cancer when she was 12 and has to take 3 kinds of pills (she's only 18 for christs sake, she was born a day before I was). All this **** in our lives and the fact that not only are we not being told how dangerous it, it's actually being advertised on TV (that's right! all those 'non-stick' cooking utilities being advertised. Teflon!) That's what scares me man. There's not even any real way to recycle them when they do get out of condition. And if we throw it away it pollutes the world and takes years to break down. That's what's ****ing scaring me.
