(SNews) – A California Democrat has thrown his support behind calls from the Biden administration to ban gas stoves from American homes by claiming that the appliances are causing “cardiac problems.”
As Slay News reported earlier, the Biden admin is considering a nationwide ban on gas stoves over claims they emit “harmful pollutants.”
According to a report by Bloomberg, Biden officials claim that a ban on the appliances being used in American homes “is on the table.”
The far-reaching admission was made by U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) commissioner Richard Trumka Jr.
Trumka reportedly told Bloomberg that gas stove appliances are a “hidden hazard” that “can be banned.”
“Any option is on the table,” Trumka told the outlet during an interview.
California Democrat State Senator Scott Weiner put out a statement on Twitter saying he is in favor of the ban.
“Gas stoves are toxic to people’s health,” he alleged.
“They cause asthma in children, cardiac problems & other disease,” Weiner claimed, without evidence.
“They need to be phased out.”

Radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) also responded by taking to social media to speak out in support of a ban on gas stoves in American homes.
Ocasio-Cortez argues, without evidence, that gas stoves cause brain damage.
“Did you know that ongoing exposure to NO2 from gas stoves is linked to reduced cognitive performance?” AOC wrote in a post on Twitter.
