Here is a little-known fact: smoke from cooking fires kills more people worldwide each year than AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined. And it is a leading cause of blindness and respiratory disease. How can we help? Well, we have a field-made rocket stove that burns so hot that it attains almost complete combustion - smoke and pollutants are consumed in the fire. And we are learning how to implement it and other designs by studying cooking habits and customs from around the world.
