Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 06, 2018

The Trump administration is suppressing an Environmental Protection Agency report that warns that most Americans inhale enough formaldehyde vapor in the course of daily life to put them at risk of developing leukemia and other ailments, a current and a former agency official told POLITICO. The warnings are contained in a draft health assessment EPA scientists completed just before Donald Trump became president, according to the officials.

Those that got vaccinated, at least.

Maybe they don't want immigrants to know you can get leukemia this way, so they're forced to hide it from everyone?

What in god's name is wrong with these people?

The only thing that makes any sense is that somehow, another 'power' is trying to destroy our confidence in our own government's intentions to protect us. We spend Billions to fund EPA, and these rat-phookers are doing everything they can to kill us.

I can see it now: New improved "user-friendly" asbestos.

Yes, but it's been many years ago. Like 1986.

"I've got underwear older than 1886."

I have a Heineken jersey that I've had since the early 1970's. I never wear it though, it's my kids' inheritance.

Our bodies naturally produce formaldehyde.

Snoofy, it's sad for us to see how strongly you cling to ignorance.

Your body naturally produces fecal material.

Then you post it here and think it's an accomplishment.

Maybe you had a point. It's just that I don't see what it is. Your body produces (metabolizes) lots of things with formaldehyde being one of the more harmful.

For example, when you drink methyl alcohol aka wood alcohol, you end up going blind, because your body produces formaldehyde from methanol, which is a toxin.

You drank rotgut, and your body produced methanol, and now you're blind, and that at least partially explains your profound ignorance. Okay. Cool story bro. Sniper enjoyed it as well.

Most Republicans can't understand the warnings anyway. Big words.
