    Marami akong nadiding na masama tungkol sa formalin or formaldehyde na i think its just blown out of proportion by most probably people with vested interest because this chemical had been with most of our household products like adhesive, carpet, textile, pest control, disinfectant at marami pa since the start of industrialization at ganun din yung lead. ano nga ba talaga ang real score sa usaping ito?

    Masama lang if they enter your body. If they remain stable in the product, they are not supposed to be a health hazard.

    masama nga ba talaga as "masama" o di naman ganun kasama yun depende sa amount of ingestion. kaasi ito nga sabi: f[SIZE=3]ormalin is a generic term which describes a solution of 37% formaldehyde gas dissolved in water. Solutions of formalin for use on fish should contain 10 to 15% methanol, which inhibits formation of paraformaldehyde (discussed below), a highly toxic compound. Two commercial products have been approved for use in aquaculture by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These are Formalin-F sold by Natchez Animal Supply, Natchez, Miss. and Paracide-F, sold by Argent Chemical Laboratories, Redmond, Wash. Both of these products have been approved by FDA for use on food fish (trout, salmon, catfish, largemouth bass and bluegill) as a parasiticide. There is no legal withdrawal time (time after the chemical was used before fish can be slaughtered for food) for either of these products. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]at ang lead naman: Lead poisoning is a medical condition, also known as saturnism, plumbism or painter's colic, caused by increased blood lead levels. Lead may cause irreversible neurological damage as well as renal disease, cardiovascular effects, and reproductive toxicity.
    Humans have been mining and using this heavy metal for thousands of years, poisoning themselves in the process due to accumulation and exposure. The dangers have also long been known. Reducing the hazard requires both individual actions and public policy regulations. Blood lead levels once considered safe are now considered hazardous, with no known threshold.
