What Kind Of Heat

The worst is coal. The best is none. Breathing coal fumes

during the beginning of the industrial age may have brought the

new lung diseases: tuberculosis (TB), and pneumonia. It may

also have worsened alcohol addiction (beryllium toxicity).

Choose electric heat if possible. Even though electricity is based

on other fuel consumption, you don't have to breathe those fumes

directly.

Wood stoves can be made safe by making sure the chimney

works properly. Never use a lighter fluid. Don't fill the house

with smoke when stoking.

Minimize your use of fossil fuels in every way you can.
