Re: Chinese Drywall and Toxic Fumes

I contacted the Florida Department of Health and three environmental
labs who are testing for carbonyl sulfide, carbon disulfide and hydrogen
According to the folks at FDOH, no known cases associated with drywall
exposure have been reported.
According to three environmental labs testing for the presence of sulfur-
based compounds in drywall they have no knowledge of any health impact
and no knowledge of any reported exposure cases. In fact, all their
tests have shown PPBs far below any known exposure threshold for these
According to Dr. Phillip T. Goad of the Center for Toxicology and
Environmental Health, his state-wide testing has shown concentrations of
carbonyl sulfide and carbon disulfide below the concentrations typically
emitted by human breath.
If the compounds emitted by Chinese drywall were so toxic, wouldn’t the
entire population of China be wiped out by now? After all, the source of
the sulfur compounds came from their coal fired power plants.
