"The government issued warnings yesterday about two materials used daily by millions of Americans, saying that one causes cancer and the other might. Government scientists listed formaldehyde as a carcinogen and said it is found in worrisome quantities in plywood, particle board, mortuaries, and hair salons. They also said that styrene, which is used in boats, bathtubs, and Styrofoam, may cause cancer but is generally found in low levels in consumer products whose risks are low." (06/11/11)
