Formaldehyde and leukemia: What research reveals about the risks

Chloe Reichel, research reporter: My pick is a deep dive into the research linking formaldehyde exposure with leukemia, a topic that got some attention last summer when news came out that the Environmental Protection Agency was suppressing a report purportedly making this connection. I thought, if the EPA won’t release the report, why not ask the experts myself? It’s a long read but I think it’s worth taking the time, especially considering the ubiquity of the chemical (do you even vape, bro?). It’s also a story about politics, research methods and the intersection of industry and academia, so really there’s something for everyone.
