Potential DANGER in your kitchen - Gas Stoves & How It Can Effect Your Health

You may use it on a daily basis and never have known that you potentially are putting yourself & your loved ones in your home in harms way.

In the recent years there has been increasing concerns about the dangers of gas stoves in homes.

As a result of burning natural gas at high temperatures, gas stoves create Nitrogen Dioxide - an invisible by product that is harmful to humans. Researchers have found that gas stoves increase the risk of harmful emissions in the environment posing a human health hazard.

Even while your stove is turned off (unburned gas) you're at risk for potential leaks, exposing you to benzene which is a known carcinogen (cancer causing substance).

Researchers found that children with gas stoves in their home were 20% more likely to develop respiratory illnesses. People who had gas stoves in their homes were found to be at greater risk for asthma, lung disease, and increased mortality.
