Air pollution poses a serious threat to our nations health. The American Lung Association works to improve air quality so that the air we breath is safe and clean. Things such as Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Radon are odorless and colorless. The lack of odor and color play a large part in the level of danger because it poses no warning to those in the home. CO can emit from gas stove ranges and kills quickly.
Ways to prevent these issues are to run the exhaust hood when cooking to help ventilate the air, check burners every now and then and make sure they're clean, and absolutely ban smoking from your home.
