Known human carcinogen associated with nasal sinus cancer and nasopharyngeal cancer, and possibly with leukemia in June 2004
International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies formaldehyde as a human carcinogen.
Many consumers may not be aware that formaldehyde, a toxin and carcinogen commonly used in the embalming process, is also one of the most common ingredients in many materials that make up a normal home. As a result, many household items from furniture to bed sheets emit formaldehyde fumes that are harmful to the health of families and children.
Formaldehyde can cause irritation of the skin, eyes, nose, and throat. High levels of exposure may cause some types of cancers.
The first proposal would implement formaldehyde emission standards under TSCA Title VI, and would apply to hardwood plywood, medium-density fiberboard, particleboard, and finished goods containing these products that that are sold, supplied, offered for sale, or manufactured (including imported) in the United States.
