MDF board is raising some health concerns because it's made with an adhesive containing urea-formaldehyde (or urea-methanal formaldehyde), which "off-gasses" into its surroundings. One study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that high levels of this formaldehyde can irritate the skin, eyes, nose, and throat. Worse yet, it estimates that high exposure levels could increase your lifetime risk of getting cancer, with an anticipated 6 to 30 extra cases for every 100,000 people per year.
Because of the health hazards MDF presents, the U.S. government passed the Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act in 2010, which sets limits on how much formaldehyde home products can contain—in this case, a max of 0.11 ppm (parts per millions). Europe’s formaldehyde standard is higher, at 0.07 ppm, and the California Air Resources Board set its standard higher still, at 0.05 ppm.
