IT IS HUMAN nature to feel hungry and human instinct to seek nourishment. But what if you were told that every meal you have ever cooked caused you more harm than good? This is the disturbing reality for people living in many developing countries where exposure to indoor air pollution is greatest. According to the World Health Organization, about 4.3 million people annually die prematurely due to exposure to Household Air Pollution (HAP). Household air pollution is primarily caused by cooking with what are referred to as "traditional fuels," such as coal, charcoal, wood, animal waste and dirty and dangerous fuels such as kerosene. The environmental and health effects caused by traditional fuels are harmful and an alternative fuel source must be embraced.
