ToxicTrailers.com was launched after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when the government spent more than $2 billion on FEMA trailers with high levels of formaldehyde that sickened thousands of people. The FEMA trailer tragedy exposed what is a widespread problem in RVs, mobile homes, modular buildings and even conventional buildings that use pressed wood products. Unfortunately, as we approach the tenth anniversary of Katrina, formaldehyde regulations are not being enforced in the U.S., and people's health is at risk. If you are having burning eyes, congestion, sore throat, coughing, breathing difficulties, frequent sinus infections or rashes, and difficulties concentrating, you may have a formaldehyde problem.

brain cancer and formaldehyde
My stepfather was diagnosed with a brain cancer the same kind Kennedy has. He had perfect health no drinking, smoking or other bad habits. He is in stage 4 and maybe with radiation and kemo he can live up to 5 years. FEMA tested his trailer and the results was 77 PPB.
