According to numerous studies, as much as 20% of all cookware/dinnerware contains lead. That's an insane amount. Then, if it's not lead, there's arsenic, aluminum, silicon, and many other forms of heavy metals that can leach into your food while you're cooking it. A horrid example would be rice cookers--so many of them are made of aluminum and/or contain lead. What on earth are we supposed to do? Even cast iron is not recommended, as iron excess may be dangerous, as well. Considering how much I cook, this is kind of pissing me off!

Does anyone know a brand of "safe" cookware? Thank you!
