    Teflon is made with the chemical per-fluoro-octanoic acid (PFOA) which is beleived to potentially cause cancer and birth defects. When teflon is overheated, emissions of PFOA are released along with other chemicals. PFOA can also be found in some pizza boxes, popcorn bags, and other common items. It has been tested that 95% of Americans have PFOA in their blood stream.
