Another avian lover has suffered the loss of her birds due to Teflon pans and wanted us to share her story so you could all see the devestating effects of Teflon.

Teflon is the common substance found in non-stick pots and pans, even in incredibly small amounts Teflon claims the lives of our birds.  
The common misconception with Teflon is that when heated on a low temperature it will not kill our birds, this is FALSE.  When Teflon is heated, even on the lowest temperatures, it releases PTFE and PFOA fumes which work quickly to fill a bird’s lungs with fluid. 
This fluid will cause almost immediate death amongst birds.  They will start will wheezing and breathing difficulties and before you can realize what caused it they will be on the ground gasping for air.
The avian respiratory system is so fragile that even minute amounts of exposure to Teflon will kill them.  Even in humans Teflon is not a safe substance as it commonly induces flu-like symptoms, if it harms us just imagine what it does to our birds.
PTFE is the chemical formula short-name for Teflon. 
PFOA is a petroleum based, carcinogenic product which keeps the non-stick part attached to the pan.
Both of these emit toxic fumes which are constantly taking the lives of all birds.  NEVER use non-stick pans around your birds, the loss of a life is not worth your omelet coming off with ease.  
Safe cookware you should be using around your birds include:
Stainless Steel
Cast Iron
Glass
"Green" Cookware
Ceramic pans are highly debated because the main base for these pans is Thermelon.  While many have has no issues with it some recent experiments have shown that they may pose a risk to our birds.
Even if your bird is in another room the toxins still travel through the air and will reach the sensitive respiratory system of your bird. do NOT take the risk. Be safe with your birds and please remove all Teflon coated non-stick pans.

Thank you

Thank you

Typing people based on their looks or mannerisms is not accurate.

I feel bad I didn’t write this one sooner…but better now than ever, eh? Yeah, this is a BIG problem in the popular MBTI groups. If you are just trying to do it for fun and take a guess, great, fine. But when you take it way too seriously and even start judging others types based on a profile picture? Or those damned Selfie waves that happen in the groups? Bout time I did a break down on why this is illogical.

Stop saying sorry. Say thank you instead. When you say, “sorry for being a jerk” the other person is forced to either call you a jerk or say it wasnt a big deal. Instead, say “thank you for being so patient with me” so the other person has a reason to say they love you.
I saw this gem on Reddit tonight.  It was posted under a topic of “What ‘little’ things you can do to improve your relationship with your significant other.”  I’m definitely taking this piece of advice with me into my next relationship. (via blakebaggott)
