If people exceed the formaldehyde limit in the environment, they will suffer from mild formaldehyde poisoning, severe cancer or asphyxia. After the decoration of the new house, there will be a pungent odor, which is most likely emitted by formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a toxic substance with a strong irritating odor, which will bring serious harm to our health. So, how long is the incubation period of formaldehyde carcinogenesis? What are the symptoms of formaldehyde poisoning?
What are the symptoms of formaldehyde poisoning?
Usually in our contact with furniture, walls and even clothes more or less contain formaldehyde and so on. The volatilization point of formaldehyde is 19 C, and the volatilization amount of formaldehyde can be increased by 0.4 times with the increase of 1 C. This feature makes furniture and wall latent formaldehyde in winter, formaldehyde content to meet the standard. In spring and summer, when the temperature is warm and formaldehyde volatilizes, the indoor formaldehyde content rises, which leads to formaldehyde poisoning.
In addition, the common symptoms of formaldehyde poisoning are cough, vomiting, diarrhea, high fever, chest tightness, and poor breathing. Generally, these symptoms occur one after another soon after moving into a new house, possibly due to formaldehyde poisoning. Formaldehyde poisoning looks like a cold.
How long is the carcinogenic latency of formaldehyde?
The incubation period of formaldehyde may be several years, or it may not occur for a lifetime. But it can also cause leukemia and cancer. So don't take it as a trivial matter, except for the formaldehyde company, it's better to seek professional management.
As for carcinogenesis, it depends on the individual's physical condition. If the body has poor resistance and often stays too much formaldehyde in the environment, the risk of cancer is higher. The process of causing cancer is a long one, which may be a year or several years'incubation period.
If formaldehyde exceeds the standard, it may cause chronic formaldehyde poisoning, and can not exclude carcinogenic factors, but the possibility of carcinogenesis is relatively small. If it is dizziness, headache, nausea, anorexia, it may be the occurrence of chronic poisoning, the impact on the body is relatively large, it is recommended to go to the hospital as soon as possible, targeted treatment.
