RE: [Histonet] Formalin on skin

From:Kemlo Rogerson

Whilst I accept your premise that the mutagenic properties of formalin is
low; anything that causes cell death, and formalin certainly does that,
increases the mitotic activity of replacement cells and thereby increases
the risk of an abnormality. 

Personally I have excluded pregnant woman from the presence of formalin and
try to have zero tolerance for trying to fix my Staff in its fumes by using
extraction, monitoring and protective gloves, etc.
