Gas stoves linked to asthma in children,
adult cancers, scientist warns

Original Article

It may be time to pass on gas. The more than 40 million households in the US who use a gas stove might want to consider an alternative. New findings have shown that gas stoves — even when turned off — may cause asthma in children and put adults at risk of cancer. Dr. Jonathan Levy, an environmental health professor at Boston University, claimed the stoves may pollute the air with nitrogen dioxide, which can cause lung damage. The pollutant, a “byproduct of fuel combustion,” is also the same that is produced on major highways, but since the kitchen is an enclosed space, it puts inhabitants at more risk.


Even when turned off?
Not to worry. We can cook and heat with 'tricity.

BS. All of a sudden? Natural gas has been used in the US for over 100 years but suddenly it's a big problem.

If you believe this, then your brain is well on its way to mush. Econazis will fall over themselves to fund grifters like this for more fear-porn rather than paying for some useful research like checking all the "safe and effective" jabs.

The will surely be a lot of studies coming out that a lot of things that have worked just fine for years and years are suddenly causing cancer for some other ailment. Of course, these ailments will all be caused by things that just happen to be on the hit list of the climate change activists.

In 1976 we decided to use natural gas. The gas supply was cheaper than anything else. My parents used natural gas. I do not have asthma. I am not dead. I think I will heat up my coffee once more. Trump won.

Agree with #1. How long have we been using natural gas? Now it's a problem? Now they will ban gas stoves. Have to save the planet. Fossil fuels bad! Besides, don't want junior coming down with asthma? That would be child abuse! Do it for the children! Something new for the left to go to war against.

Inotice a lot of 'May's in there. In other words, no scientific study has been done. More likely, some damned little Demon Contributor is lined up ready to sell electric stoves for a handsome profit. That's the way Democrats reward loyalty. The scales of Economics and the scales of justice can both be swayed by a finger on one side, and often are. Another possibility is that they are attempting to weigh the scales so that when they shut off electricity to Americans, they can paralyze and endanger more of us, when we start rebelling.

If gas stoves caused all of that then why don't I and my 6 siblings have asthma or or cancer as adults. Because of the first 10 years we had gas stoves the 3 houses we lived in. One had a huge furnace in the basement. My first apartment as a young bachelor had gas heat and stove. I could barely cook and used the microwave oven that was an old dial Radar Range. This is just pure BS from the leftist "scientists" at BU.

You can see the lack of confidence, or certainty in this "finding". FTA: "may cause" claimed the stoves "may pollute" Those are hardly strong findings of any sort, and the essential rationale for this "finding" is to demonize natural gas, which is clean burning, as an alternative to the Democrats desire to destroy energy producers and those who have jobs related to the energy sector. An actual finding would have words saying "it will", "it does cause", etc..

This is all part of the push for all-electric homes in the belief that they're more "environmentally friendly." They're not, but that's not stopping the nanny state from mandating heat pumps instead of gas or fuel oil furnaces, and electric stoves. Never mind that heat pumps only work down to about 40 degrees (after which they have to be supplemented with other forms of heat) and we're not building enough power plants to charge electric cars, and power all-electric homes.

President Joe Biden pledged to build a high-speed railway between Scranton, Pennsylvania, and New York City on Wednesday. The president made his bold (and likely unrealistic) pronouncement during his post-midterm election press conference on Wednesday when recalling how a congressman in the state of Pennsylvania asked if his infrastructure plan would include a high-speed rail between the two cities. “We can. First of all, it will make it a lot easier to take a lot of vehicles off the road, and we have more money in the pot now already out there that we voted for than the entire money that we spend on Amtrak, to begin with,” he said.

The White House on Wednesday deleted a Twitter post after it was fact-checked for making an inaccurate claim about the Social Security cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) that was recently announced. “Seniors are getting the biggest increase in their Social Security checks in 10 years through President Biden’s leadership,” the now-deleted White House Twitter post said. However, the post failed to mention that the COLA adjustment was due to surging, decades-high inflation. COLA adjustments have been automatically done every year for decades due to federal law, and the adjustments are not contingent on any of the Biden administration’s policies. “The point was incomplete,” a White House official told The Epoch Times via email.

Tampa — With barely two weeks left before Election Day, a new Florida Atlantic University poll shows incumbent Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis with an 11-point lead over his hopeless and hapless Democratic challenger, Charlie Crist. This is the same margin as the one reflected in a Mason-Dixon poll in late September. The current RealClearPolitics average of polls shows DeSantis up by 10 points. This comfortable lead should come as no surprise, both because of DeSantis’ solid performance as governor and because of Crist’s total lack of performance in the many offices he’s held. Inexplicably, Crist marched up the Florida political food chain, starting as a state senator in

Last month in Cherokee County, North Carolina, a high school girls’ volleyball game was played between Hiwassee Dam High and Highlands High. One of the players on the Highlands team, a biological male, hammered a spike at an estimated 70 mph. The shot looked different than the shots the biological girls were making. It was “abnormally fast,” said one witness. The spike beaned a Hiwassee Dam girl in the head. The assaulted player went down hard, having suffered devastating injuries to her head and neck. A month has passed, and she is still suffering from a long-term concussion, including impairment to her vision. She has not been cleared to play.

After the midterms, the Republican Party and half of the conservative movement are now furious with Donald Trump. Their writs are many — even though the party establishment shares much of the blame. Even before the midterms, there was a latent feeling among half of Republicans that Trump, given his age, and the animus he incurs among the rich Left and touchy independents, might retire to the role of kingmaker, rather than try a third presidential election. Trump’s eruptions, coupled with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ stunning and singular midterm success, ensured that such prior latent conservative unease is now overt.

America's #1 cable news channel was the outlet that former vice president Mike Pence chose on Tuesday evening to do everything but formally declare that he will be a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. In an extensive live interview with Bret Baier from New York, where he is promoting his political memoir, So Help Me God, published yesterday (including an hour-long town hall on CNN tonight), Pence used the high-profile platform of Fox News to position himself as a sane, moderate, Christian-inspired alternative to President Trump as well as any other candidates among the growing number who plan to challenge President Biden in two years.

This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family.

House Republicans nominated Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) to be Speaker in a closed-door conference meeting on Tuesday after he faced a last-minute protest challenge from Rep.

But in the eyes of Biggs and his supporters, the goal was merely to demonstrate that McCarthy lacks the support to seize the gavel when the full House meets to choose the Speaker early next year. The 31 votes opposing McCarthy easily met that threshold, raising immediate questions

Recalling how former Vice Presidents Al Gore and Dan Quayle fulfilled their roles in certifying elections they lost was much more influential in former Vice President Mike Pence’s ceremonial ending of the 2020 campaign than his boss, former President Donald Trump. In one of several interviews to promote his new book, Pence said he looked to the examples of Quayle and Gore in deciding to certify the election of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Jan. 6, 2021.
