Info you really don't want to know about....
My friend Terri Hirning and fellow Autism mommy has some great info on her blog about plastics and cooking pans and pots. See her link to the right if you dare. I have to say, tonight has been depressing for me. First, my candidate did not win and second, I found out that I can't cook with my Foreman anymore.(Thanks, Terri!) If I didn't have my little Tate to worry so much about what he is exposed to and how sensitive his little body is, I know I wouldn't be so concerned about every little thing. But, the truth is is that it does matter. He is full of toxins. I am learning why and I know that these are changes that I do need to make. It is so totally overwhelming to change everything at once and the more I learn, the more I am convinced that nothing is really safe. We can only do the best we can. Baby steps. So, tonight I threw out my teflon stock pot. I will keep my foreman and use it on occasions but not for my Tate. I will switch to using my cast iron skillet for pancakes and no more plastic at all in the microwave. Those are my commitments for now. Read Terri's last few blogs to get all the info......if you dare. She has just returned from a great conference in CA to get all the latest info on Autism and from incredible Dr.'s who have explored why our little ones have this disease. If you have little ones, you need to be concerned. Remember, I had a healthy little boy who was born without autism. The world gave it to him. I am going to give it back. Don't let your world give this to your little ones. It really does matter what we eat, what we cook with, what we live around. Unfortunately we have to worry about it all. Take the time to read.
