WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to Sen. Joe Manchin and Sen. Ted Cruz’s introduction of the Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act, Barbara Gottlieb, Director for Environment & Health for Physicians for Social Responsibility, issued the following statement:

“On behalf of health professionals working across this nation to protect Americans from indoor and outdoor pollution, we implore Sen. Manchin and Sen. Cruz to stop politicizing issues of public health. 

“We should all be engaged in serious and factual discussion about mitigating the risk from known triggers for asthma and other conditions, like gas stoves. Twenty-five million Americans live with asthma. What’s needed is measures to protect these vulnerable Americans from toxic pollution in our homes.”
