Counter quote from Food Additives and Contaminants Journal
"A study published in the journal Food Additives and Contaminants tested 26 nonstick cookware products under extreme conditions to find out if any toxic chemicals were released. The study concluded that cooking with the products did not release any chemicals.
Still, fumes released when you overheat nonstick cookware can make you feel sick. Although these fumes are not PFOA and are not linked to cancer, they can cause temporary flulike symptoms in people and may be fatal to pet birds. The symptoms in people are known as "polymer fume fever."
I have just regular aluminium or stainless steel pans, and find them great. I've had them years and they look as good as new. The metal scourers are amazing for cleaning them, even when I burn stuff!
I don't find non stick to be very long lasting, so I'd go with a good set of metal saucepans.
