Children’s tableware seems to be a small thing in terms of “food”, but it often reveals the great wisdom of Baoma! Faced with a variety of tableware types in the market, is Baoma dazzled? Are you still in favor of beautiful tableware? Be careful of poison!
Ceramic: reject inner wall painting
Health threat: Although the color painting on the inner wall of ceramic tableware is bright, there are heavy metal elements such as lead, mercury and cadmium in the colored glaze. Among them, cadmium and lead are easy to cause liver or other visceral poisoning, while Mercury can cause liver and kidney sclerosis.
Health advice: don’t pay too much attention to decorative patterns when choosing ceramic tableware, especially don’t use bowls with painted inner walls. The newly purchased tableware can be soaked in vinegar for 2-3 hours to dissolve the harmful substances in the colored glaze. In addition, color porcelain should not be heated in microwave oven.
Stainless steel: far away from strong acid and alkali food
Health threat: stainless steel is very metallic and more resistant to corrosion than other metals. But if it is not used properly, the metal elements in stainless steel will slowly accumulate in the human body, and when it reaches a certain amount, it will harm human health.
Health advice: when using stainless steel tableware, be careful not to put strong acid or strong alkaline food for a long time. Stainless steel utensils should not be used to boil traditional Chinese medicine.
Aluminum pot: too much aluminum can cause memory loss
Health threat: aluminum is an aging element of intelligence, which can lead to memory decline and mental retardation. Too much aluminum is not only an important cause of Alzheimer’s disease, but also harmful to children’s brain development. Most of the aluminum in food comes from cooking utensils pollution, especially the mixed use of iron and aluminum (such as iron pot aluminum shovel or aluminum pot iron shovel). Due to the role of electrolysis and replacement, it can lead to aluminum dissolution and increase intake.
Health advice: do not use aluminum pot for a long time, and do not mix the cooking utensils and tableware made of aluminum and iron.
Non stick pot: dry burning and frying will “poison”
Health threat: non stick pot makes many housewives get rid of the trouble of difficult to wash oil pot, but the coating of non stick pot will crack under high temperature, and release two toxic substances, one is CFC, the other is carbon trifluoride. The former is harmful to the organism of animals and will gather in the body; the latter is toxic and will damage the human body.
Health advice: Generally speaking, cooking in a non stick pot or soup will not do harm to human body, but if it is used to fry food, there will be certain harm. Because some people like to boil the pot dry and red before adding oil, so the temperature in the pot must be over 260 ℃. When using non stick pot, we must put an end to this habit.
Plastic: plastic bottles should not be used as oil bottles
Health threat: oil in plastic containers will produce chemical effects, decompose harmful substances, and endanger human health.
Health advice: when choosing plastic tableware, try to choose colorless and tasteless, and the words PE (polyethylene) and PP (polypropylene) are marked on the goods. Oil should be avoided in ordinary plastic bottles.
Milk bottle: see the brand logo and drive away the colorful flower pattern
Health threat: some illegal traders use waste to make poor quality milk bottles, which contain a lot of toxic bisphenol A. Bisphenol A can cause reproductive system and brain development disorders in infants. In addition, the low molecular compounds in the poor quality milk bottles will dissolve even under the normal temperature of 20 ℃, causing damage to respiratory tract, lung and other organs.
Health advice: generally, there is no manufacturer and brand logo on the poor plastic milk bottle, the scale on the bottle is not accurate, the bottle body is not transparent, and there are spot white impurities on it. At the same time, it should be noted that there is no color pattern inside the milk bottle, so as to prevent the pigment from melting in milk or water.
Chopsticks: do not favor painting chopsticks, the more natural the better
Health threat: the painted chopsticks are beautiful, durable and easy to clean, but the paint contains lead, cadmium and other harmful substances, especially benzene, which is recognized as carcinogen. After the chopsticks with too deep color or too heavy paint are used for a long time, the heavy metals and harmful organic solvents in the paint will cause chronic injury to human body.
Health advice: try not to choose painted chopsticks. In addition, when buying chopsticks, wash them and disinfect them frequently. After cleaning, air dry them in time. Change chopsticks at least once a year. Even between family members, chopsticks should not be mixed.
