Various researchers studied variable connections between respiratory symptoms or lung function in children by using gas for cooking. Kitchen ventilation features may change the association between gas cooking and respiratory health. The focus of this study was to explore the effect of kitchen ventilation (while cooking) on the connection between gas cooking, igniting product dispersal, and respiratory and allergic results in children.
Information on allergic and symptoms and diagnoses were gathered by yearly survey in a population of over three thousand children participating in a birth group study on evolution of asthma and allergy. At four years of age, a sub-sample of six hundred and forty seven children provided blood samples for antibody testing. Statistics, on gas cooking and kitchen ventilation were collected when the children were five years old. Based on these figures a model was established to rule the chance of collection of combustion products (CACP) in the kitchen.
Except nasal symptoms, no connection was found between gas cooking and any of the respiratory or allergy results. The overall results did not change when the 'CACP' was used as exposure changeable instead, while the connection for nasal symptoms reduced to borderline importance.
