EPA SEEKS CONTROL OVER WOOD STOVES, CITING HEALTH RISKS FROM CANCEROUS AIR
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said that it will propose rules to limit emissions from new wood
burning stoves because smoke from wood burning stoves is a significant source of air pollution (15%) in the
nation and emits compounds that could cause cancer. The agency estimated that 12 million wood stoves
were now in use and 800,000 more were being sold each year.
