Is ptfe tape toxic?Is PTFE tape harmful to human body?

PTFE, commonly known as Teflon, has no toxic effects on human body, but ammonium perfluorooctanate, one of the raw materials used in the production process, is thought to have carcinogenic effects, so it is beginning to be controversial. In particular, the Teflon cooking utensils begin to deteriorate after reaching the temperature of 260 C and begin to decompose above 350 C. These decomposition products may cause flu-like symptoms. Generally, they do not reach this temperature in the case of cooking, but empty cooking utensils are placed on an unguarded hot stove, often exceeding this temperature, thus causing harm.
