REAL WOOD does not release Formaldehyde, a known carcinogen
The newest cost-cutting method used in mass-produced Ready To Assemble "furniture" is hollow core construction. This not only saves costs in manufacturing, but keeps weight and shipping costs down.
THIS IS NOT FURNITURE.It's another "engineered wood" and not suitable for lasting furniture. It's more properly labeled as biohazardous trash, as that's where it will end up shortly after purchasing this "bargain."
If you have time to spend trying to assemble these products and tracking down missing parts, why not invest your time wisely finishing REAL WOOD furniture constructed professionally and properly using time-tested methods by generations of American craftspeople?
Formaldehyde and Cancer Risk
Formaldehyde is a colorless, flammable, strong-smelling chemical that is used in building materials and to produce many household products.
Formaldehyde sources in the home include pressed-wood products, cigarette smoke, and fuel-burning appliances.
When exposed to formaldehyde, some individuals may experience various short-term effects.
Formaldehyde has been classified as a known human carcinogen (cancer-causing substance) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Research studies of workers exposed to formaldehyde have suggested an association between formaldehyde exposure and several cancers, including nasopharyngeal cancer and leukemia.
