Abstract: Background In this paper, an attempt has been made to explore the relationship between different biomass fuel user and their health problems. Methods For the purpose of analysis, “IUB Health and Socio-Economic Survey” 2013 data was used. Bivariate analysis along with a Chi-square test was performed to examine association. Results Results highlighted that simpler from of biomass fuel such as leaf have higher prevalence of having breathing difficulties than complex from of biomass fuel such as cow dung. Fuel type Cow Dung user compared to leaf user, has 68.34% lower odds of having breathing difficulties, keeping all other independent variables at a constant level. Although 60+ ages’ female, primary and secondary educated female, heart disease, asthma and anxiety have significant effect of having Breathing Difficulties. Conclusions Findings of this paper indicate that using complex from of biomass fuel is safer rather than using simpler form of biomass fuel. Completely avoiding biomass fuel is not possible in the Developing country like Bangladesh right now that’s why it is suggested to use complex from of biomass fuel for combustion.
