Cook your food in glass, enamel, ceramic or microwavable pots and pans. Throw away all metal ware, foil wrap, and metal-capped salt shakers since you will never use them again. If you don’t plan to fry much (only once a week), you might keep the Teflon(TM) or Silverstone(TM) coated fry-pan, otherwise get an enamel coated metal pan. Stir and serve food with wood or plastic, not metal utensils. If you have recurring urinary tract infections, you should reduce your metal contact even further; eat with plastic cutlery. Sturdy decorative plastic ware can be found in hardware and camping stores. Don’t drink out of styrofoam cups (styrene is toxic). Don’t eat toast (many toasters spit tungsten all over your bread and make benzopyrenes besides). Don’t buy things made with baking powder (it has aluminium) or baked in aluminium pans. Choose goods made with baking soda and sold in paper or microwavable pans. Don’t run your drinking water through the freezer or fountain or refrigerator. Don’t heat your water in a coffee maker or tea kettle. Don’t use a plastic thermos jug (the plastic liner has lanthanides) the inside must be glass. Don’t drink from a personal water bottle (it begins to breed bacteria) unless you sterilize it daily.
Why are we still using stainless steel cookware when it contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel? Because it is rustproof and shiny and we can’t see any deterioration. But all metal seeps! Throw those metal pots away. Get your essential minerals from foods, not cookware.
Never, never drink or cook with the water from your hot water faucet. If you have an electric hot water heater the heating element releases metal. Even if you have a gas hot water heater, the heated water leaches metals or glues from your pipes. If your kitchen tap is the single lever type, make sure it is fully on cold for cooking. Teach children this rule.
