In the near future, the development of gas infrastructure and the elimination of the "white spots" on the gas map of Poland will become a reality. Currently in Poland, the most popular is using cookers powered with natural gas (about 56%). Liquid gas is less popular - the number of households is estimated at about 14%. The wider availability of gas will certainly contribute to the increase in the number of gas cookers. We spend a large part of our lives in apartments, not realizing that we are directly exposed to toxic substances from the combustion of organic fuel. These substances are not inert to humans and even their relatively low concentrations can influence on health. The authors of the article try to research the evidences of damaging effects of toxic components from gas stoves, taking into consideration the impact of ventilation on the final air quality in individual kitchens and living rooms.
