Pine plywood

I don't use it but for smaller enclosures, I was wondering if it truly is toxic? I believe that most plywood have pine in it anyways and it is dried.

It looks like the information might be a few years old. Just want to know opinions.

I wonder if kiln-dried sufficiently solves the toxic resin danger?

I heard that it does since the sap is the problem. Apparently, there isn't much science to support the pine wood issue as it's a cousin of cedar and so it's theorized.

Apparently, plywood glue is often phenolic based. I feel like it might be a myth created due to pine chips being poisonous... I don't know. It is a resin produced by the wood that's damaging.
