Funny how that worked

The National Institute of Health wanted to declare formaldehyde a carcinogen for years, but there was an appointed representative on the board who held it up, when he finally resigned, voila!

That asshole?

Why David Koch, whose company is a giant in the formaldehyde production business.

Formaldehyde has been a known human carcinogen for more than 20 years. I learned that it was one of the few chemicals proven to be a human carcinogen when I took environmental toxicology in 1985. When I first saw this news I said WTF? This is like declaring that the moon is a big ball of rock.
