I love physics questions I don't know the answer to.
So, (math, math, math)...
(probably wrong somewhere, people will tell me where I messed-up, FOR SURE)
Suburban stovetop has two 6,500 BTUH burners.
I read Propane
has 21,600 BTU/Pound.
Divide (and the units MATCH!) we get 3.3 hours per pound of Propane
One pound of Propane produces 1.75 pounds of water, so 1.75 pounds of water every 3.3 hours is 0.53 pounds of water as vapor per hour of running the stove.
Humans breath about 20 times per minute and produce about .03 grams of water in each breath.
That's 1,200 breaths per hour equals 0.08 pounds per hour.
So.... Humans produce far lower RATE of water vapor than a propane stove.
If you are so obnoxious that you breath for 12 hours you produce about a pound of water vapor and it would take one burner of a stove about 1.8 hours to produce that much, so I do believe, based on my running the stove for about 20 minutes to make coffee, that I INDEED do produce more water vapor than my Propane stove!
