That’s not true, you can ingest an amount of carcinogen that won’t affect a healthy person. Formaldehyde for example is naturally created and used in the human body.

That's not how it works, not everybody that is exposed to a carcinogen develops cancer.

But there is not amount of carcinogen that you can take with no possibilities of developing it.

So there is no safe dose.

That’s why I said “healthy person” you’re being pedantic but it’s still a silly argument considering things like breathing regularly contain carcinogens, or eating slightly burnt toast, or red meat.

Plenty of healthy people develop cancer. We all take carcinogens everyday.

That's how reality works, there is no "safe".

Only risk management.
