Cooks love their gadgets, from countertop slow cookers to instant-read thermometers. Now, there’s increasing interest in magnetic induction cooktops – surfaces that cook much faster than conventional stoves, without igniting a flame or heating an electric coil.

I grew up in the 50's with a gas stove. We had the same stove when I left home in the 70's. I had tow brothers and a sister and both parents smoked. Despite all that none of us had asthma. During that time there was only limited environmental regulations, leaded gasoline and clean water or air were dreams. Yet we all were and continue to be healthy. Gas stoves are not a problem,

This is a pretty sneaky way to continue the attack on the gas industry. But its comical that it is being pushed as another way to save the planet by people who use private jets and limousines daily!
