Gas Stoves & Your Health May 9, 2022

Webinar: Cooking with Gas: Health Harms from Gas Stoves
Wednesday, May 18, 2022
7 p.m. MT

Join PSR National and PSR Arizona for an important webinar May 18 about gas stoves and our health. Gas stoves have been linked to increases in asthma among children and respiratory illnesses among both children and adults.

Unlike their electric counterparts, gas stoves emit pollutants, including nitrogen dioxide (NO2), carbon monoxide (CO), and formaldehyde. Homes with gas stoves have higher concentrations of nitrogen dioxide—in some cases upwards of 400%—than homes that use electricity for cooking. NO2 can cause chronic lung disease.

Gas stoves are also bad for the climate. A key component of natural gas is methane, a more potent greenhouse gas than CO2.
