Staying in smoky kitchen equals two packets of cigarrette a day

I was shocked by the statement, a research result by a British academy. Housewives would suffer greatly if they do not mind the way meals are prepared, do not have good air circulation in the kitchen. Take it seriously and start doing something right away. Among other things, choosing healthy oil, reducing frying, turning on exhauster, opening window are some of the things we can do immediately.

Yes, this is indeed true as a friend's mom passed away due to lungs cancer. She is a non-smoker, however due to the kitchen ventilation is not good, therefore it coz her inhaling the smoke from the cooking process. Doctors have advised us to have a ventilated kitchen.

I think it is true. In fact some women who have never smoked, but they still have the lung cancer. The doctor found out that this is because they stay in the kitchen for a long time to breathe a lot of smoke from the kitchen. It is also harmful. I love China

beautiful kitchen - well ventilated kitchen
Kitchen should have exhaust fan to absorb all the smokes that come from all the frying and cooking. Otherwise we will be inhaling hazardous smoke which is bad for our health. But the best is to have a well ventilated wet kitchen adjacent to the main kitchen for cooking purposes only.

So zhuhuifen, does smoking in a smoky kitchen reduce the risks? Just joking, but actually not really. The smoking ban just introduced here will probably mean most of the taverna tables will have to be moved into the kitchens to comply with the law about not smoking in public places. It's all we're going to hear here for a while.
