The chemical found in Teflon that people are concerned about is called per-fluoro-octanoic acid — PFOA. The EPA has declared that PFOA may cause cancer. If you overheat a Teflon pan, PFOA and other dangerous chemicals can be released. Basically you would have to heat the Teflon coated pan over 260 degrees Celsius. However, under normal cooking conditions, you would rarely reach a heat of that degree (if you did, you would have probably burnt your food anyways).
If its so dangerous why do they use it for cookware?
