How Do I Get My Girlfriend Away From Teflon Nonstick Pans?

Hey all. My live-in GF is set on using Teflon cookware. She has a set of great quality Better Homes And Gardens brand nonstick that she's had for a couple years but, they are starting to show some scratches and reveal the aluminum body, due to her kids using forks in them, therefore she'll be in the market for another $250 set of "unhealthy disposables."

I recommended to her to start cooking with my cast iron, or to purchase stainless Tramontina that I have yet to get. But the debate never concludes. I say that tri ply stainless steel and cast iron will last our lifetime, and that Teflon can't be good to our bodies(???), and that exposed aluminum has been known to cause Alzheimers(???). I just can't win the debate over her. Nonstick is thee way it is, unless I cook.

She cooks 90% of the time over my 10% so what she says goes in the kitchen :)

Do I just cook more? Lol. Or do any of you folks have more advice I can give her for switching from Teflon disposables?
