Stoves in California homes leak cancer-causing gas

Benzene is a carcinogenic gas that can cause leukemia and other cancers or blood disorders, according to the National Cancer Institute

LOS ANGELES — Gas stoves in California homes are leaking the cancer-causing gas benzene, according to a study published Thursday whose authors said they need to continue investigating the cause of the leaks in many homes.

Of greatest concern to researchers was benzene, a carcinogen that can cause leukemia and other cancers or blood disorders, according to the National Cancer Institute.

This would have serious consequences for indoor and outdoor air quality in California, the second state in the country for the level of residential gas consumption.

“Our science reveals that Californians are exposed to potentially dangerous levels of benzene in the gas delivered to their homes,” said Drew Michanowicz, one of the study’s authors and a scientist at PSE Healthy Energy, an energy research institute. “We hope that governments take this data into account to ensure that current and future measures protect health in light of this research.”
