It’s now well established that living with a gas stove can cause a range of health problems that include asthma, heart disease and possibly cancer.

“You’re igniting a gas that generates nitrogen dioxide and formaldehyde into your kitchen,” said Annemarie Dooley, a Seattle doctor who serves on the board of Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility.

“And it can often, within minutes, make the air quality in your kitchen worse – and exceed EPA outdoor limits. I mean, that’s within minutes.”

Dooley said gas stoves are like cigarettes; she thinks they should at least come with a health warning.
