Eliminating the use of formaldehyde and other carcinogens IS the right thing to do. The most vulnerable in our population: fetuses, young children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune system, deserve to be protected from health-harming chemicals. The cleaner our homes and work places are, the healthier we will all be.
