This post has nothing to do with wildlife conservation, but I thought what I am going to write has great relevance for parents with children.
A new study by Oregon State University specifically recommends that parents with children at home should use ventilation when cooking with a gas stove. The study showed an association between gas kitchen stove ventilation and asthma, asthma symptoms and chronic bronchitis.
Homes that used ventilation while cooking with gas stoves were 32%less likely to have asthma than in homes where ventilation was not used. Asthma and bronchitis are common chronic problem in children.
The findings were published recently in the journal Environmental Health.
