Physicians: It’s Crucial To Address Gas Stove Emissions July 30, 2023

Clean Technica

Rather recently, it’s been determined that, yes, cooking with gas does indeed cause severe health problems. We shouldn’t do it. But is that enough of a message for people who have been cooking on gas for years or probably even decades to stop it and get an induction stove? Probably not. So, some doctors are uniting to try to get the point across.

The organization Physicians for Social Responsibility recently posted the following on LinkedIn: “Gas stove pollution is like having a chain-smoking roommate in your kitchen. With each use, it releases harmful pollutants like nitrogen dioxide and formaldehyde, just like constant puffs of smoke filling the air. Just as you wouldn’t tolerate a chain-smoker indoors, it’s crucial to address gas stove emissions to maintain a healthy living environment.”
