Hello, thanks for reading this, I have a question I hope you can answer. Formic acid is used as a coagulant to turn rubber tree sap into Latex, Formic acid also decomposes to Carbon Monoxide, does this mean things like Latex mattresses have the potential to off gas carbon monoxide? I am assuming they don't and this is a stupid question, but I have had carbon monoxide poisoning twice, I would like to buy a Latex mattress and I don't need CO issues for a third time. 
 
If this isn't an appropriate forum for this question and you can point me in the direction of one that is that would be great.
 
Thanks Very much.
