I was bummed out to find that the stainless steel cookware I've been using (thinking it was pretty safe) is actually really bad; turns out that--according to Dr. Peat--there is magnetic stainless steel and then there is non-magnetic stainless steel. The non-magnetic is bad--worse than aluminum or iron.
From "Irons Dangers" by Peat
"There are two main types of stainless steel, magnetic and nonmagnetic. The nonmagnetic form has a very high nickel content, and nickel is allergenic and carcinogenic. It is much more toxic than iron or aluminum. You can use a little "refrigerator magnet" to test your pans. The magnet will stick firmly to the safer type of pan."
Anybody have suggestions for brands of Magnetic (safe) stainless steel cookware?
Or other kinds of safe cookware?
these are the set i have and that were recommended as peat friendly and this was the cheapest place I could find them online.
