MDF Questions

Hello, I just built a workbench for my garage and for the work surface I used MDF. I've been reading and it seems that MDF is constantly gassing stuff out that is generally bad for you. If I cover it in multiple coats of an oil based primer, will it seal everything in? Also is an oil based primer the best thing to use to seal it?
