Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced a growing backlash on social media Wednesday after claiming gas stoves and ovens are linked with “cognitive performance.”
“Did you know that ongoing exposure to NO2 from gas stoves is linked to reduced cognitive performance,” posted AOC on Twitter.
“AOC says gas stoves cause ‘reduced cognitive performance’ – yet she uses a gas stove? Is this a self diagnosis? AOC, as a medical doctor, I can tell you this: what’s wrong with your head IS NOT caused by stoves. Something WAY BIGGER is causing your decreased cognitive function!” fired-back Rep. Ronny Jackson.
