non-stick pans harm fertility

Here's another scary news story, about the chemicals in non-stick pans hurting fertility.

It's speculated that the impact on fertility is from affecting the levels of female sex hormones.

The last thing that we fibroid shrinkers need is anything that affects our hormones! All non-stick pans I own are going in the back of the closet right now!

Do you have a Wegmans supermarket by you? They have a free magazine called Nature's Marketplace in their healthfood section. It has an article on foods that support fertility. I went to Wegmans website to see if the magazine was online, but I couldn't find it. I also did a yahoo search, also couldn't find it. In the magazine's table of contents, I see that they list so I also went there, but no luck. If you can't get it, I would be happy to mail it to you. Just let me know. Thanks for your blog!!

No Wegmans out here, although I remember it fondly from my youth on the E. Coast. Thanks for mentioning the article and looking for it in digital form.
I think now all the blog readers are curious about what this article says, if you have a few moments perhaps you could jot down the foods they mention in another comment?
