I read in a AArp magazine and this is what it said. vinyl flooring is made from polyvinyl chloride ,a petroleum product that releases cancer-causing dioxins during production, also its made in china please let me know if I should removed it ? I installed in 2 rooms in my apt I love the way it looks . thank you

As long as you don't eat it, you should be OK. Seriously though, probably 90% or more of everything you own produces cancer causing agents during production, installation, or removal.

If your gonna rip up the floor you may as well rip everything else that isnt wood out too and then encase your house in a plastic bubble.

AARP is a great organization. But when it comes to flooring....not so much
