> Just to refresh the memory of some folks, recall formaldehyde is 
present in the 1 carbon metabolic cycle so our bodies contain lots of 
formaldehyde. I understand that  formaldehyde has been measured in 
exhaled breath at 1-2 ppb. The dose does make the poison!!

OK, Roger, but the internal exposures are not gaseous hitting mucous
