Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pollutant emission from domestic and commercial cooking activities is a previously neglected area of concern with respect to human health worldwide. Its health effects are relevant to people across the globe, not only those using low quality food materials in lesser-developed countries but also to more affluent people enjoying higher quality food in developed countries. Based on the available database of pollutant emissions derived from fire-based cooking, its environmental significance is explored in a number of ways, especially with respect to the exposure to hazardous vapors and particulate pollutants. Discussion is extended to describe the risk in relation to cooking methods, cooking materials, fuels, etc. The observed pollutant levels are also evaluated against the current regulations and guidelines established in national and international legislation. The limitations and future prospects for the control of cooking hazards are discussed.
