Formaldehyde Exposure and Asthma in Children: A Systematic Review

ABSTRACT

Objective: Despite multiple published studies regarding the association between formaldehyde exposure and childhood asthma, a consistent association has not been identified. This study reports the results of a systematic review of published literature in order to provide a more comprehensive picture of this relationship.

Conclusions:  The results indicate that there is a significant positive association between formaldehyde exposure and childhood asthma. Given the largely cross-sectional nature of the studies underlying this meta-analysis, there remains a need for well-designed prospective epidemiologic studies.

“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
