Seems there are so many different options and it's confusing. I'd prefer the "healthiest" option but don't know what that is. Does anyone know what the pros and cons are?

I believe there are fumes and formaldihyde (sp) in some engineered wood finishes - and often in laquers

I find it healthier for me to not have to sand and oil it every few years.

We have engineered wood floor downstairs and it's natural brushed and oiled. Which gives a great non shiny look but it does still absorb grease, so there is some staining.
