Why are non stick pans recommended for stir fry? Isn't the high heat a safety issue?

I'm reading the Cooks Illustrated Best Recipe book right now and it says the best pan to use for a stir fry is a non stick skillet. However, I thought that proper stir fry cooking meant extremely high heat but also that non stick skillets can become toxic with too much heat. Isn't there a bit of a conflict there?
