A majority of households in America use gas stoves in their kitchen. The stoves actually pose a health risk because they produce carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, formaldehyde and something called "fine particulate" matter that finds its way into your indoor air. Whenever cooking, use your vents to help flush out the toxins and bring in clean air. And try to cook on the back burners whenever possible; their positioning allows your vents to pull in the gases with maximum efficiency.
