Did you know cooking on a gas stove could be as unhealthy as breathing secondhand smoke?
It gives you a dose of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and formaldehyde every time you use it. And research in Environmental Health Perspectives shows those contaminants are also in secondhand cigarette smoke.
So what’s the fix? Use the vent! Ventilating a gas range can reduce pollutant levels by up to 90%. You can make it even safer by cooking on the back burners… Because most vents are set toward the back of the stove.
