then shame on you with the facts a part of life. Give your birds
a break and not have them where you are doing hair. Do you know
the polymer toxins collect in a birds throat and humans too then
on to the respiratory systems? No I would think your birds not
totally healthy. Non stick products do not have to be overheated
to be lethal. I refused to sell birds to different people that
wanted them for mascots for hair salons. Those people got an
education and were grateful for the information. Why you are
ignoring information before you I do not understand.
Dupont is paying multi figure retributions because they caused
so many deaths, illnesses and birth defects. They are to have
their poly products phazed out by 2015 so it looks to me like
they were found guilty and they are with the proof before them
for so many years.
When I first knew about non stick in the mid 1960's I wondered
what kind of damage it would cause and now we know. Dupont is up
to it's eyeballs in multi figure lawsuits and has been for a
long time. They settled many claims in the 60's with employees
that were pregnant then had babys with birth deformities. Did we
keep using it? Sure we did me included because it was 'easy' to
About 5 weeks ago a dear friend of mine was using her one last
small sauce pan with non stick coating and did not over heat it
and did not leave it cooking alone BUT she walked in to her bird
room a short time later to find 7 birds dead. Necropsys proved
it was polymer toxins in the birds. There was a B&G that sang, A
green cheek conure that was one of the sweetest birds ever, One
of my own tiel babys that was 2 years old, a keet, a pair of
parrotlets and I just can't remember the other. No idea why it
didn't kill the other several birds but I know they were
affected. Big or small bird doesn't matter non stick kills.
The month before she found a dear little parrotlet dead and the
necropsy showed irritated throat and this is what the polymer
fumes do. This tiny little precious ones system didn't have a
People are affected as well with Polymer Flu but this is not
readily diagnosed with symptoms the same as regular flu. It
seems some have had extra testing done for this to be known.
All I have left is stainless, glass and cast iron pots and pans.
I will not trust any of the other ones. If it is non stick of
any kind I won't trust it. For other products I research first
before bringing harm into my home to myself and my birds.
Non stick products do not have to be overheated to be lethal.
