Recent media and consumer interest has drawn attention to health and environmental impacts of gas cooking stoves. This attention has coincided with several municipalities implementing or considering bans on natural gas appliances in newly constructed buildings. This presentation will disentangle these recent developments by providing overview of the state of evidence linking gas stove use with incident asthma, discuss the role of nitrogen dioxide air pollution and its health impacts and then summarize climate impacts related to gas appliance use in residential environments.
