Well, this isn't really having anything to do with food, but I was wondering about like fireplaces and stuff like that. If you're burning logs, and papers if that's gives off like toxic?

[Aajonus]

It gives off a lot of carbon monoxide depending upon what you're burning. If you're burning [unclear] there's heavy oils and there's a lot more tars as well as the carbon monoxide.

Chimney area should have a glass in front of it and have good circulation, so the smoke and gas doesn't come into the house. And most of the lawns are the firewood that they own.

[Aajonus]

A lot of them are treated.

[Attendee #2]

What are they treated with?

[Aajonus]

They treat it with substances, dried out, some kind of solvent.

[Attendee]

And they don't necessarily have to say that? Like they don't- obviously it's all green.

[Aajonus]

No, you're not eating it. So yeah, no restrictions.
