At the same time that #DavidKoch has cast himself as a champion in the fight against cancer, Koch produces formaldehyde in great quantities, as a “known carcinogen” in humans." Koch lobbyied to prevent E.P.A from labeling formaldehyde as such #DarkMoney newyorker.com/magazine/2010/…
"Scientists have long known that formaldehyde causes cancer in rats, and several major scientific studies have concluded that formaldehyde causes cancer in human beings—including one published last year by the National Cancer Institute, on whose advisory board Koch sits."
"The study tracked twenty-five thousand patients for an average of forty years; subjects exposed to higher amounts of formaldehyde had significantly higher rates of leukemia."
"These results helped lead an expert panel within the National Institutes of Health to conclude that formaldehyde should be categorized as a known carcinogen, and be strictly controlled by the government."
"Corporations have resisted regulations on formaldehyde for decades, however, and Koch Industries has been a large funder of members of Congress who have stymied the E.P.A., requiring it to defer new regulations until more studies are completed."
