Join us in a presentation on the dangerous pollutants gas stoves release, including nitrogen dioxide (NO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and Particulate Matter (both PM2.5 and PM0.1). Unventilated gas stove use produces concentrations of these pollutants that exceed EPA ambient air standards. Children are among the most vulnerable to these health effects due to their higher lung to body ratio and developing immune & respiratory systems. Additionally, Black, Latine, and low-income communities bear a disproportionately larger burden of gas stove pollution.
- Articulate how cooking with gas appliances produces dangerous indoor air pollution and explain the health effects of each pollutant.
- Recognize and prioritize vulnerable populations, as well as understand why they are vulnerable.
- Address the health effects of gas stove pollution and explain to patients the steps they can take to reduce their risk.
