Beware! Your Gas Stove Maybe Making You Sick!

Gas stoves can generate harmful air pollutants while working and even when shut off, according to researchers and regulators.

Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is a byproduct of fuel combustion and one of the most prevalent air pollutants connected with the use of gas stoves.

Nitrogen dioxide exposure in houses is linked to more severe asthma and rescue inhaler use in children. This gas affects asthmatic people.

How can one gas burner expose you more than a whole highway? Outdoor pollution disperses across a vast region, whereas indoor pollution concentrates.

The construction of your home affects how much indoor pollution a gas stove causes, so some people are more exposed to NO2 than others.

Concentrations can be drastically reduced by making use of a range hood or other ventilation measures, such as opening a window in the kitchen.

Gas burners emit more than nitrogen dioxide. Some pollution with health and climate implications occurs while burners are off.

Unused gas stoves in the U.S. release as much methane as 400,000 cars, according to a 2022 research. Magnetic induction stoves eliminate this exposure & assist the environment.

Gas stoves should be avoided if you want to take advantage of incentives, cut energy expenses, or lessen your carbon footprint.
