You wrote that most volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) have a variety of long term health effects.
Partly true. Precisely as true as "All VOC's are perfectly safe".
The truth is, inhaling chemicals (such as, oxygen, and even VOC's like the smell of fresh-baked bread, or the smell of a rose garden, or fresh-mixed epoxy) is
1. harmful if the concentrations or time of exposure is high enough 2. harmless or even necessary for life--and often enjoyable--otherwise.
My point is that you just have to heed manufacturer's warnings and use common sense, but having done so, just relax and enjoy life!
