    In much of the world, food is heated by burning primitive solid fuels. The smoke can be deadly

    not bad at all-----especially in the manner that the people of india use it.
    Indian households seem to like to cook in very WELL VENTILATED
    ways-----like in a court yard or a kind of "lean-to" structure. Primitive is
    best <<< sometimes.
