Don’t Use Newspapers For Soaking Extra Oil From Fried Delicacies.
Aluminium and lead are toxic metals and are harmful to human health. Aluminium pans and vessels are dangerous to cook food in or store it in. All non-stick cookware is aluminium coated with Teflon. Any such vessel with even a small chip in the Teflon coating also exposes our food to aluminium contamination. And the Teflon coating in most non-stick kitchenware in most homes is chipped. Hardly anybody throws away such cookware when it is even slightly damaged.
The best option is all stainless steel kitchenware!
While use of lead and other heavy metals is banned in newspaper inks in the US and is considered safe, no one knows if all the newspaper ink in India is similarly safe. So don’t soak extra oil from your fried food on newspapers or don’t eat foods wrapped in newspaper. Remember newspaper wrapped ‘wada-pav’ and ‘bhaji’ from the road side vendors those most people love so much?
Spread freshly fried food on paper napkins or tissue papers, instead, to absorb the extra oil.
