Gas Appliances Affect Children – Wellness Wire

A recent study in Spain found that children exposed to gas appliances had reduced cognition and attention. Gas stoves and heating appliances release nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and the research shows it has an affect on memory, verbal skills and the coordination of complex behaviors in preschoolers and those who had prenatal exposure to the substance. The children studied exhibited inattention behaviors and scored on average 5 points lower at 4 years of age on a standard battery of tests that measure memory, verbal abilities and motor skills than children living in houses with no gas appliances. The study concluded that children exposed to NO2 had a higher risk of developing Attention Deficient Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD.
