In Australia we can obtain from the manufacturer a "Material Safety Data 
Sheet" which has information on all safety factors of the product. It's 
something you have to ask for, but they are the best way of knowing what 
you need to do to protect yourself.
If you don't get them in the US, just Google your product & MSDS and 
you'll likely find some.
Bear in mind that some materials are in slightly different formulations 
in Aus : e.g. MDF has no detectable formaldehyde in its adhesive.
