1. Read the labels of the products you buy. Few directly claim formaldehyde as a list of the ingredients, so the manufacturers use synonyms that are not easy to recognize as formaldehyde. If you come across any of these labels, think twice before buy
Questions About formaldehyde
BeerFilter: I've been told by 3 separate bartenders that draught beer has formaldehyde in it, that's why they only drink from bottles. A Google search shows at best that there may be two reasons for formaldehyde being in beer. (1) Can manufacturing and (2) ethanol breakdown. Are either harmful enough to avoid draught beer? One article, here about can manufacturing says that in "the old days" formaldehyde was used, but today other washes take it's place. Another article here (about 1/3 down the page) suggests formaldehyde is a common byproduct of ethanol, which should be in all beer. Are these the same chemical things, or enough to change my habits? Should I only drink bottles to oxymoronically "drink healthy"?

I watch the Doctor's Show on television and wanted to see what they are putting in flu shots and they listed carcinogens and formaldehyde just to name a few of the ingredients.

I believe I've had the swine flu and haven't died yet!
