Help save lives this holiday season
Non-stick cookware refers to cookware that has a chemical coating so that food doesn’t stick. Teflon is the brand name for DuPont’s non-stick cookware, but many other companies (for example, T-Fal and Silverstone) also make non-stick cookware. The chemical name for Teflon is polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
Non-stick cookware may expose you to 2 potentially harmful chemicals:
- tetrafluoroethylene (TFE), used to create the non-stick coating
- perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), used during the manufacturing process
My favourite thing about Camp Goodtime is being able to hang out with other kids who have survived cancer. They know what is going on in your life and can help you get through it.
Advocating for cancer patients
Our staff and volunteers meet with elected officials from local, provincial and national governments to persuade them to make the fight against cancer one of their top priorities.
