In reply to comment: What? (see in situ)

formaldehyde is in almost all petrochemical based products.

everything from paint to carpet to vinyl.
it is indeed toxic and when I was taught about IAQ (indoor air quality) it was at the top of the list for high rise office buildings.
the trouble with it and others is that they smell good. in an office building where no one can open a window.. it is a big deal.
cigarette smoke was actually a good thing in this type of environment.., why?
because people would complain if they could smell it. and the ventilation system would get fixed.
today I am seeing many buildings with zero ventilation.
many people today are literally getting sick at work and they do not know why.
