Thirty thousand plus government employees have been poisoned by formaldehyde by their uniforms. The company VF solutions continues to deny this is above safe levels. We are having symptoms that mirror those of formaldehyde poisoning,rashes, headaches, dizziness, joint pain, fatigue, asthma. Several employees now have cancer. This thing is just starting I suggest you make your financial decisions immediately
From the TSA... "We take complaints of discomfort seriously of course, but to put this in perspective only 20 of our 45,000 have complained so far."
Your assertions about cancers are completely unfounded. There is not the tiniest hint of cause and effect. When one looks at the numbers of uniform wearers vs the number of complaints it is probably nothing more than one person developing a rash and the rest are hysterical/psychosomatic illnesses. This is a very common situation. It may also just be some people trying to get paid to stop complaining.
No garment worker has any symptoms and millions of garments with these fabrics have been produced with no prior complaints.
Assuming there was formaldehyde on a piece of fabric in the first place, Formaldhyde washes out completely after one home laundering. Formaldhyde is extremely pungent and the levels required to even begin to cause acute toxicity would be beyond anything a wearer could stand. The problem with formaldehyde was that it was a suspected carcinogen for people exposed in manufacturing operations to large amounts on a daily basis (think years of fumes). Besides, formaldehyde has not been used in the processing of textiles in a couple of decades. Formaldehyde was replaced by DiMethylDiHydroxyethylurea (DMDHEU) and similar glycolated compounds back in the 70's and 80's.
