There are 4 comments on Should You Replace Your Gas Stove?

  1. This has been a concern of mine for years since we relocated to a gas fueled house. Common sense says that there is a potential problem for air quality in the home and toxic exposure for its inhabitants! Now that the research confirms my fears it’s past time to replace the gas range or get outside ventilation. This is a timely and well written article.

  2. Gas stoves could indeed be harmful, and I personally avoid them. However, I think that banning anything should be our last resort since this infringes on people’s freedom to live as they choose. And this could easily go too far. For example, using the gas stoves as the pretext the government could ban both gas and electric stove. The latter because they are not energy efficient. In the end, everyone could be forced to use induction stoves, which might come with their own problems due to radiation or anything else.

    Information, not bans is the answer.
