For some, summertime equals campfires and BBQ parties. However, what counts as a luxurious and enjoyable pastime for the lucky few, is actually a serious healthhazard for most. Globally, over four million people die every year from household air pollution, mostly due to cooking over burning wood, animal dung or charcoal. To paint another grim picture of the situation, the average wood-burning stove can produce 400 cigarettes worth of smoke every hour.
