Lisa’s Answer

Lodge cast iron is generally safe to use.  They are free of PTFE/PFOA/PFOS and do not have a coating. They do releasing iron which has many important functions in the human body.  You can, however, get too much iron.  If you use cast iron, you may want to rotate it with other types of cookware to avoid getting too much iron.

Lodge also sells ceramic-enameled cast iron.  I don’t recommend this type of cookware.  There is emerging data that shows that quasi ceramic coating releases nanoparticles into food.  You can read more about it here.
