Put Food on the Back Burner: Gas ranges can produce significant amounts of indoor air pollution.

Photo: Stockbyte / Getty Images related articles By Dan Shapley Simply cooking food on the back burners and using your range's exhaust fan can reduce indoor air pollution from cooking, according to a new study by a Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientist published in Environmental Science & Technology . The study aimed to compare the effectiveness of various ventilation fans, and found deficiencies with most. Some fans removed pollutants effectively, but were inefficient; others removed pollutants well, but were loud.
