An apple a day, though, keeps the doctor away?
Well - formaldehyde and methanol and formic acid are nutrients, and the body of healthy well-nourished people (think folic acid) are fully capable of coping with it. One-carbon metabolism is essential, and if there are no apples, the stuff is synthesized from other raw materials.
In clinical circumstances there is no interest in measuring physiological levels of formic acid, so most people believe the normal level is zero.
