Burnt plastic
« on: December 31, 2013, 11:01:29 PM »
So a short while ago when turning on a burner a small bit of what I believe to be plastic burnt in the stove. I was near it for just a little bit, but was not directly over it. I turned on the fan and opened up a window then moved to the back ornate house. What has me worried is that both my wife and I got a very short lived headache a few minutes afterwards. Now she had been having a headache on and of all day and my sinuses are stuffed up bad, the headache was very mild and lasted all of 10 to 15 minutes. However now my stomach is a little unsettle.

I am worried that it will cause us both serious harm, like I am afraid it will cause us both dementia or ALS or cancer or something. Am I worrying over this one too much? I mean it's not like I was near it for long and it was just a tiny bit of plastic. Plus I don't exactly do this on a regular basis. So could I just be over thinking this one?

I have burnt plastic before. I don't think this is going to cause you serious harm. If so, I am a goner for all the bleach I was smelling when I was giving my house a much needed detoxing :happy0151:
