Comment: I heard a rumor that using your oven to warm the house (the
furnace had went out)causes a build up of carbon monoxide.
Which in turn could cause death. Can you help me on this?

If it happens again I will stop viewing your site.

Comment: Hello, I have some Le Creuset old cast iron pots.
The inside opaque enameled has a fine white dusty film similar
to a piece of chalk; even after a wash the surface really good.
I have read that enameled cast iron cookware coatings are made of powder
glass and other components; if this dust comes
from the enameled coating, my question is: could it be poisonous to cook
in these pots ?

To say nothing of what it does for the person whose brain is eaten.

Of course some would say that one is already crazy if one wants to eat a human brain.

Not true, although the world does get decidedly strange around then. You end up dreaming while you are awake, which is very weird.

Probably not in the abstract, but in practice it is a good way to get blood-born illnesses. If the blood you drank was free from anything communicable, you would probably be ok.
