No matter how healthy your food is, if you’re like most Americans you are probably making this mistake that can lead to cancer in the pancreas, liver, testicles or mammary glands – as well as miscarriages, thyroid problems & a weakened immune system…

You wouldn’t buy a car without taking it out for a test drive first would you?

Same should be true for your cookware — that’s why I want to give you a full 30 days to try out your new Mercola Healthy Chef Ceramic Cookware.

Simmer, sauté, and bake with it for 1 full month. Then if you find it just isn’t your cup of tea — return it for a full refund in store credit. That’s fair, isn’t it?

But there’s just one thing — the cookware has to come back to us in just like-new condition in order for you to return it — so take extra care with it while you test it out.

For years, I’ve been working tirelessly to get the message out to you about all the dangers lurking about in your common, everyday cookware.

From the toxic chemicals present in non-stick surface pans, to the leaching of dangerous heavy metals into your food from a variety of other types of metal cookware — I want you to know.

I’ve talked about it, written about it, done videos about it — and tried every way I can think of — to warn you of the terrible hazards to your health from most cookware out on the market today.

For those of you who might still be skeptical of the presence of these dangerous toxins making their way into your food — and most assuredly into your body — I finally have the proof.

Just take a look at this chart of a recent 2009 Heavy Metals Leaching Test performed on common types of cookware you might use everyday.
