The world Health Organization has determined that indoor air quality contributes over a million deaths per year from lung diseases. The reason for this poor air quality isfuel combustion from cooking fires and flame based illumination lamps.( candles, lanterns and oil burning devices)

Why would anyone willingly subject themselves to elevated carbon monoxide levels and other combustion by products?

We have the technology to provide light indoors without resorting to such unhealthy old style methods dating back many centuries. Oh sure I get nostalgic when I smell the odours from a burning lantern; that is until my chronic asthma brings on a coughing fit to remind me my health is now compromised from beathing in the fumes for too many years.
