I know a lot of people will cite many examples on why they prefer gas cookers to stoves. But have we ever ponder on the dangers or hazards associated with its usage? or have you ever experienced or witness gas cylinder explosion? I am not trying to scare anyone here because I use a gas cooker as well at home. Now, I want us to realise the dangers they present potentially
1.The study revealed that air pollution occurs when gas is burned, and that the pollution can cause inflammation in the lungs. The inflammation can cause a narrowing of the air passageways and complicates existing breathing conditions
2.Some home kitchens lack adequate ventilation, which increases the risk of exposure to gas pollutants.
3. Since carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and difficult to detect without a carbon monoxide detector, the potential for carbon monoxide poisoning is considerably dangerous: this type of poisoning takes the lives of a lot of people every year.
4. Lastly, it is what you and I already know. Fire and gas explosions due to leaking hose or valves or otherwise. A lot of family lives have been lost due to domestic gas incidents.
Note: Importantly, do not use camp gas in your household!!!
