8. Non-Stick Cookware
Non-stick cookware has been getting a lot of attention lately, especially when it comes to people's health. The coating that helps your food not stick to the pan contains polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which releases a gas when heated. This gas has been linked to higher risks of cancer. 

Instead of using non-stick products, look for cookware that gives you the same experience without the harmful ingredients. For example, Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan uses Greblon ceramic, which is 100% PTFE, PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), and APEO (alkylphenol ethoxylate) free.
