Narrative Against Gas Stoves Turns to Cancer

As part of their quest to abolish natural gas in the name of the climate Democrats have inexplicably zeroed-in on household gas stoves, and their scare-mongering has reached new levels.

The attack on stoves got real at the beginning of this year, when U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. said the agency planned to take action against “pollutants” emitted by gas stoves.

The Environmental Protection Agency and World Health Organization say gas stoves have been found to emit nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and other particulates at unsafe levels.

They also point to recent studies that show gas stoves can emit the greenhouse gas methane even when they’re switched off.

One study, led by environmental think tank RMI, claimed that gas stoves cause over 12% of childhood asthma cases in the country, a similar number to the number of cases attributed to secondhand smoke.

Since then, the Department of Energy has issued a proposal so stringent it would ban almost all of the gas stoves currently on the market.

New Attacks on Gas Stoves Invoke the ‘C’ Word

A new study being spread through the mainstream media claims gas stoves raise the level of benzene in homes, a cancer-causing chemical.

The bombastic study looked at just 17 homes that featured a total of 33 burners or ovens.

Researchers set the burners to high and ovens to 350 degrees for 45 minutes, which elevated benzene levels to those above the chemical levels found in secondhand tobacco smoke in roughly 30% of cases.

“If you’re breathing in benzene you’re at an elevated risk,” said Yannai Kashtan, a graduate student and lead author of the study. “The World Health Organization says that from a cancer point of view there is no totally safe level of exposure.”

The publication comes after New York state Democrats included an agreement to abolish new gas hookups in buildings in their 2024 budget. Other Democrat-led cities are now considering similar measures.

Federally, House Republicans – with the support of some Democrats – recently passed legislation to prevent the federal government from banning gas stoves.


  1. Oh, yeah – here we go again – the U.S. government and the World Health Organization say we’re all going to die if we don’t do what THEY say. I think we’ve been down this BS road before and I’m not buying it. I wonder who is pushing this? Let’s follow the money – I wonder how involved the appliance manufacturer lobby is – they’re the only ones who benefit – just like the phony vaccines that made the drug companies filthy rich. And the only real problem with gas today is these bureaucratic gas bags. They’re the real problem.

    Next on the agenda: If you don’t do this they’ll threaten to take your kids away because you aren’t complying with their orders- Child Protection will take them and turn them into transexuals.

  2. What next? Your gas stove creeping into your bedroom at night to torment you like the Twilight Zone episode with the slot machine tormenting Franklin.

  3. The bureaucrat idiots, marxists, democrats, worry about gas stoves. These have been around for how long? They have no empirical evidence to their claim. Yet they look away when you ask about fentynal. Bastards!

  4. Of course, that’s what has spread cancer all over the U.S.! It isn’t our polluted water, air, soil, food, cosmetics, etc. So glad they finally found the right “science”. Morons!

  5. The existing grid already is insufficient to fulfill U.S. needs. Eliminating gas would seem to increase electric power needs…duh.

  6. Does this also mean no grilling. It is so hard to can food on an electric stove because it is harder to regulate the temperature to keep it steady. Yes, they can ban gas stoves leaving us no source for cooking if they shut down our electricity. A new move toward population control.
