Are your bowls, chopsticks, spoons, plates, and pots “healthy”? In fact, if you choose not carefully, beautiful tableware can easily become an “invisible killer” that endangers your health.
Ceramics: Although the colored paintings on the inner walls of ceramic tableware are bright, the colored glaze contains heavy metal elements such as lead, mercury, and cadmium. Among them, cadmium and lead can easily cause liver or other internal organs poisoning, while mercury can cause liver and kidney cirrhosis.
Stainless steel: Stainless steel is very metallic and more resistant to corrosion than other metals. However, if used improperly, the metal elements in stainless steel will slowly accumulate in the human body, and when it reaches a certain amount, it will endanger human health. Be especially careful when using stainless steel tableware. Do not store strong acid or strong alkaline food for a long time.
Plastic: Grease packed in plastic containers will produce chemical effects, decompose harmful substances, and endanger human health. When choosing plastic tableware, try to choose products that are colorless, tasteless, and marked with the words PE (polyethylene) and PP (polypropylene).
Chopsticks: After long-term use of chopsticks with too dark color or heavy paint, heavy metals in the paint and harmful organic solvents will cause chronic harm to the human body. In addition, chopsticks should be washed and disinfected frequently after they are bought, and they should be air-dried in time after washing, and chopsticks should be changed at least once a year.
