CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) A state official said Wednesday that he "can guarantee" some West Virginians are breathing in traces of a carcinogen while showering after the chemical spill, but federal health guidelines say people need to breathe "a lot of it" to be a problem.

Should earn them a discount for the embalming charge from the undertaker...
Well, at least the evidence will be preserved.
Oh, they’re inhaling it by accident. Don’t prosecute ‘em.
Everyone in the DelMarVa is inhaling Barry Benghazi’s BO.
Does the embalmers union know about this intrusion from non-dues paying interlopers?
Welcome to biology class, dissection lab.....
Next up, painting cars at Uncle Earl’s. (Earl Scheib for those who have no clue.)
Ban formaldehyde, paint thinner, spray paint, CO2, etc.
There was yellow paint on the car in the next stall and on the floor.
He spilled the paint on the drive way. It was still there 20 years later. Lol.
LOL on Earl Scheib.
In the old days you could get away with inhaling a lot of paint.
These new 2 and 3 part paints are a whole ‘nother deal.
They go in but don’t come out.
Maybe it will kill me, but think how long I’ll keep.
This sounds like the recipe for the zombie apocalypse.
What are they doing? Sheeting their homes with osb?

Haha, if it was put out that inhaling large amounts
got you high, people would be overdosing on the stuff.

And here I thought this meant that District 12
had come up with an alternative to sniffing glue.
“In 2011, the National Toxicology Program, an interagency program of the Department of Health and Human Services, named formaldehyde as a known human carcinogen in its 12th Report on Carcinogens Formaldehyde and Cancer Risk The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) raport from 2012 http://monographs.iarc.fr/ENG/Monographs/vol100F/mono100F-29.pdf 5. Evaluation There is sufficient evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of formaldehyde. Formaldehyde causes cancer of the nasopharynx and leukaemia. Also, a positive association has been observed between exposure to formaldehyde and sinonasal cancer. There is sufficient evidence in experimental animals for the carcinogenicity
I have lived for 84 years virtually ignoring stuff like this.
