RE: [Histonet] curious about soaking paraffin blocks.

I have left them on for an hour or a little more without noticing any problems. I do Chronic Wasting disease tests on deer brains. I don't notice that it effects them differently than tumors from other species.

Greetings All,
  I remember reading on here/archives that paraffin blocks should not be
soaked or kept on ice for too long--what is the reasoning behind this? 
I am just plain curious and still fairly new to the field.  I often
leave blocks on for a long time and this seems to help or at least not hurt.
