Come on, be real. Do you drive a car? Do you breath the air? Chemicals used in paint should be the least of you're worries. I am not a chemist but after the paint has dried, I do not think the is any more off gassing anyway
Maybe you are from California
Can you imagine if we didn't have laws governing car emissions? We'd all be dead by now! Tata in India would have killed us...
Can you imagine if tap water didn't have all the regulations it has what you'd be drinking?
Can you imagine if there wasn't a law to keep rivers clean, what rivers would contain? Look at China to get a sense of what pollution can do to a country.
I'm not in favor of laws in general except when they benefit the general public. How can you possibly say that healthier paint is a bad thing?
What about smoking? Should we have allowed smoking at workplaces and public places?
Healthier homes are definitely a good thing. Paint, Cabinets, flooring, drywall are things that should emit little cr*p as possible. You can build a healthy home but you have to spend a bazillion dollars to do it.
When you get the big C and one of us on this thread unfortunately will, you might change your tune...
