Since the 1990s, published research has consistently demonstrated that safe thresholds for formaldehyde exposure exist. In 2011, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) identified understanding the effects of inhaled formaldehyde vs. formaldehyde produced naturally by the human body as a key area to expand scientific knowledge. Today, new research by the University of North Carolina (UNC) has clearly identified the range for scientifically-based safe formaldehyde thresholds.
