PennLive Asks ACSH About Formaldehyde in Flooring

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention singled out Lumber Liquidators after it found that the retailer's laminate wood flooring products from China carried a greater risk of causing cancer and other health problems than previously thought.

Anti-science groups like Natural Resources Defense Council made a big to-d0 about it, without acknowledging that 3 times 0 is still zero, so Ivey DeJesus at PennLive asked the Council's Senior Director of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences Dr. Josh Bloom for science insight.
