Default Natural gas stoves cause asthma

Who knew? 🤔 Could be banned in 2023 by Consumer Product Safety Commission. IMO, it’s the smoke that is reflected in mirrors that causes the most harm.

Another example of too much government. Ridiculous

This was found in studies where some people were oblivious to the fact that you need to operate a vent fan at all times while using an indoor gas cooking appliance. Some people in the studies were even operating a gas range with no hood fan installed in their home, which is illegal. If you run your hood fan before you use your stove and let it run a little after, the asthma rates suddenly drop to close to zero.

Maybe "Misuse of Natural Gas appliances could cause asthma" would have been a better heading?

When I use our natural gas appliances I always put on my foil hat. I heard this helps.

Did any of you who are so angry at the consumer protection agency gathering information, did any of you read the studies linking gas stoves with increase childhood asthma and lifetime asthma risk? Did any of you read the science? Do you think the Consumer Protection Agency should actually be involved in trying to protect consumers? Or is it all on the user to be up to date on how lead in the water or N02 in the air can impact children?

The commissioner going directly to banning gas stoves is over the top.

Requiring correct ventilation, as with gas furnaces, would mitigate the risk.

These studies are good, and the CPA has it's place.

The issue here is that they shouldn't ban something that can be safely operated by an average person. A few jurisdictions still don't require venting to the outdoors, maybe they should start with making that part mandatory, kind of how seatbelts are required on cars.

As clearly reported in the link, the commissioner is NOT going directly to banning gas stoves. Maybe read the story. It is one possibility if, and only if, the data requires such a move. I have read some of the meta analysis and some of the 80 references in that analysis. The conclusion that gas stoves are linked to increased respiratory illness is very strong. Older homes with older stoves are a higher risk. Ventilation makes a difference.
All that is being done here, despite the hang wringing and anti government blah blah blah above, is that the Consumer Protection Agency is going to look into the problem. Period. Their options are anything from doing nothing to banning gas stoves.

You are more than welcome to make that suggestion as this agency always has a public comment option available.

Here is a recall just issued for carbon monoxide risk for one brand of gas stoves sold at Home Depot, Lowes and Best Buy

Default Natural Gas Stoves cause Asthma

Natural gas stoves could be banned in 2023 by Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Next step?

Allergy-induced asthma, triggered by airborne substances, such as pollen, mold spores, cockroach waste, or particles of skin and dried saliva shed by pets (pet dander)

What's next, ban Mold, Trees, Cockroaches, and Pets?

This Commission controls products such a Suntan Products and it has been found after years of study that some people still get sunburn and cancer. Next step, ban the sun?
