INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — A recent study review reports emissions from gas stoves negatively impact the quality of indoor air making it two to five times worse than outdoor air.

It's estimated one-third of American households cook with gas stoves.

Rocky Mountain Institute recommends switching to electric cooktops which have fewer toxic emissions. But if that is not practical, consider opening the windows, using the vent while cooking, and move cooking to the back burner and use an air purifier.
