Unhealthy levels of formaldehyde were found in most homes tested in research published by the California Air Resources Board. Most adults don't smell formaldehyde until the concentration is about 500 parts per billion (ppb). California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessments recommends homes not exceed 7 ppb based on cancer risk. Unfortunately, only 2% of homes tested in the CARB research were below that level. Formaldehyde can cause negative health effects without ever smelling formaldehyde. Fortunately, testing is an easy do-it-yourself task using passive formaldehyde badges. This is the method the Sierra Club used to initially discover the now infamous FEMA trailers. Many homes have similar concentrations of formaldehyde. The badges are available on the Internet for as low as $39 including the lab analysis and report.
Formaldehyde off gasses from many items including fiberglass insulation, laminate flooring, furniture and many nick-nacks.

yes fully agree all chemicals but main cause of cancers is chronic candida or yeast infection candida is all about fungus and fungus is cancer there is no cure or operation for wrong diet you can only control candida with right food and this is diet for life as candida is cause of almost every undiagnosable health complaint and disease as well but try to tell this to science worshiping masses

So women who don't get yeast infections don't get cancer?

hi interesting show me or tell me about any person on this planet who does not have yeast infection,as it is a normal product even by persons who are on non candidal diet.you symply cant digest without a bit of yeast occuring in the process,and this is for a purpose to create acetone which is fundamental to convert glucose trough protective mebrane of the body cell.it acts like thiners in spray painting which evaporates quickly after application.in diabetics cell membrane swells due to chronic candidal infection there for glucose cant get trough it despite acetone at present thinning glucose.ever notice sweet acetone smell from diabetics mouth,as it is not spent or burnt in the cell.in sewere cases these people may get ketosis or acetone poisoning coma and death.problem of yeast is owergrowth of it by continously eating candidal food.i call cancer human body mushrooms and truffles,these fungy can stay dormant in body for decades,and will pop up when condition arises,and there is nothing better then human body to grow mushrooms warm dark and moist.yes there is acetone in some foods as well but it evaporates quickly.it also depends on individual body temperature why some will gat cancer some not despite eating fungal food.me personaly would not like to gamble on that.
