according to the manufacturers teflon is not dangerous when not heated which is not true because it is now an official cancer causing ingredient, but they make millions on it so no one is going to stop using it  :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant:

It is getting better. Apparently the shoes with gore-tex technology also use teflon

They can also be found in some impregnation agents for textiles, paper, and leather; in wax, polishes, paints, varnishes, and cleaning products for general use; in metal surfaces, and carpets.

and here is a bit more to scare you further:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfluorooctanesulfonic_acid#Threat_to_people_and_wildlife
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfluorooctanoic_acid#Health_concerns

"PFOA is a carcinogen, liver toxicant, a developmental toxicant, an immune system toxicant, and also exerts hormonal effects including alteration of thyroid hormone levels.[24] Animal studies show developmental toxicity from reduced birth size, physical developmental delays, endocrine disruption, and neonatal mortality.[41][82] PFOA causes liver cancer in rodents and also induces testicular and pancreatic cancer[83] through induction of Leydig cell tumors and pancreatic acinar cell tumors."
