COOKWARE
Avoid aluminum; instead select stainless steel or glass. Aluminum can be a toxic material, tending to build up in body tissues.  Also, cookware that is Teflon-coated or has any non-stick coating should be avoided. Avoid using spray cooking oils, but use butter or liquid cooking oils instead. Use Corning Ware, Visions Ware, Pyrex, and Revere Ware. Only use cookware that has been made in the United States or in Western Europe since other countries lack the necessary regulations to prohibit toxic metals from being allowed in cookware. A yard sale, thrift shop (Goodwill, Salvation Army), or flea market may be a good source for old US made Revere Ware pots and pans.

FOOD STORAGE CONTAINERS
Avoid plastic containers and plastic bags (plastic can contaminate your food.) Select Pyrex, Corning Ware, or glass jars such as canning jars. Use safer natural cellophane bags may be ordered from NEEDS at http://www.needs.com, 800 634-1380.
