In Response To: Cookware - Let me reword the question (Lois)
For what it's worth: I use cast iron, and in my reading around on the subject about 10 years ago, I did not come across any warnings about this kind of pot, with the exception that some African tribal people were known to use soft iron cookers which gave them iron overdoses.
On the ironware subject, I gather that you are wondering about what else is in it, and does it get in us. I dunno, and with all that's been written about what-2-cook-in, I hazard the moderately informed opinion that if there were hazards in using cast iron pots, I would have heard about them already. (Famous last words, right? ;-}) If you are not concerned about the presence of the iron in the food, maybe the cast iron cookware is a good bet (Pyrex is another option, no?) until you satisfy yourself on the subject.
