I believe that theory was completely debunked.

Back in the day, the steel used in making the Ulfberht, was notorious for killing people! It is also said that breathing can kill you!

Too much iron in your body will poison you. Too much water will deplete your electolytes, and put stress on your body, and can kill you. Oregano is a muscle relaxer and can cause severe gastric problems if enough is eaten. Most herbs have some kind of medicinal quality that can hurt you if to much is ingested.

Stainless steel, cast iron, copper, aluminum, they all can kill, especially when the pans are used to clunk someone on the noggin.

Even pure oxygen can kill you. If you breathe from a scuba tank that contains pure oxygen, at depths of 30 feet and below, the gas becomes poisonous. Ordinary air becomes poisonous below 90 feet. Below 120 feet, if I remember correctly, the nitrogen in air needs to be replaced by helium.

I read an elegant definition of what we, as organic life creatures are; a hydro-electrical mechanism. I add to that. We are a hydro-electrical-chemical processing engine. Anything out that can disrupt the orderly chemical reactions, will disrupt the engine.

Ok, yes, I'm a strange man.

Now I do know if you put a corning ware or Pyrex baking dish on a hot burner on the stove it can be hazardous to your health, your pride and the dish itself.
Also never put cold water in a hot Pyrex baking dish.
The first might shatter into a million little shards and the second will split.

My kitchen is an eclectic collection of stainless steel, cast iron, copper bottomed I think aluminum (either revere or farberware), a bit of ceramic, some cast aluminum and one non-stick griddle.

My bakeware is also an eclectic assortment. But again very little non-stick.

Have you got your dishes, knives and assorted kitchen utensils?

Also I highly recommend a good all-purpose cookbook.
Personal favorites are Joy of Cooking, Good Housekeeping, and Betty Crocker.
The first two have really good sections on setting up a kitchen.
