Indoor Pollution

Indoor pollution is found to be the the 4th leading killer in the world. IAP (indoor air pollution) is when air gets too smoky or is filled with indoor cooking smoke and ends up killing people.Half of the world's population cooks on fires using biomass fuel every day. The result is that over 1.6 million people die each year from IAP. That is one person every 20 seconds. This is a major issue and is being adressed by a few companies. Envirofit makes energy efficient cookers that don't let off toxic gasses. If people invested in these things we could save lives. So let's do it!
