NEW REPORT: Top retailers fail to warn shoppers about health risks of gas stove pollution February 29, 2024

U.S. PIRG

“Far too many people – including clinicians – are unaware of the childhood asthma risks associated with gas stove pollution, and therefore are not taking steps to protect their and their patient’s health,” said Dr. Brita Lundberg, a board member at Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility. “As a physician, I have advocated that state and national medical societies encourage clinicians to share with patients the simple steps they can take, like improving ventilation, to protect their health when cooking with gas. Retailers can likewise be a key public health resource by sharing this critical information with customers.”
