Drive away the “cancer monster” in the kitchen

  There is inevitably a lot of fumes in the kitchen, and there may be a lot of carcinogens in these fumes. Therefore, we need to do a good job of preventing cancer in the kitchen.
  Kitchen fume contains a carcinogen called benzopyrene, which can damage the chromosomes of human cells. Especially when cooking oil is heated above 270°C, a large amount of mist-like condensate will first enter the lungs, causing local Tissue canceration, which in turn leads to lung cancer. When cooking at home, the usual oil temperature will be kept above 250°C. To this end, Yan Chunlian, deputy chief physician of the Department of Respiratory Medicine at the Second Artillery General Hospital of the PLA, proposed four anti-cancer measures to reduce oil fume damage.
  ●Correct installation of the range hood Suction strength of the range hood is the key to smoke control. It is recommended to choose an external exhaust range hood. Most of these range hoods work with dual motors and have a strong exhaust air volume. The range hood is installed at a height of 60 cm from the stove, the length of the exhaust pipe should not exceed 3 meters, and there should be no more than 3 turns. Only such a range hood can achieve the best smoke exhaust effect.
  ●Induction cooker instead of gas stove Kitchen fumes are not all produced during the cooking process, and there is another easily overlooked black smoke from the gas. Therefore, using an induction cooker instead of a gas stove is also an effective means to reduce oil fume, and the induction cooker has higher thermal efficiency than a gas stove, which shortens the cooking time and naturally reduces the generation of oil fume.
  ●The non-stick pan replaces the flat-bottom design of the traditional wok non-stick pan, so that it has a large heating area and even heat transfer, and can reach a very high temperature in an instant, effectively shortening the cooking time, and there will be no sticky pan phenomenon, reducing oily smoke generation.
  ●Planting green plants indoors Families with conditions can plant some green plants indoors, which can not only be viewed but also can absorb indoor toxic gases, such as roses, blue bells, geraniums, etc., which have better absorption effects on oil fume.
