Smoke from burning wood or stir-frying food indoors could potentially cause cancer and people in poor countries are at most risk, a reseach said. Do you think it is true or not? What is your opinion about this topic?

I don't think it's true. If it is, then why do so many ppl have wood-burning fireplaces/stoves in their homes? When we designed our house, the one thing that I had to have was a wood-burning f/p and have it constantly going thru-out the cold months. Cuts a great deal on the gas bill.

i personally doubt the validity of this..think of all the pioneers that burned wood on a daily basis ..they had to..and all of the homes that have always had fireplaces...i really don't think there could be that many people who got cancer that had these conditions to base that on. I could be wrong, of course, but I just can't believe it.
