Album sleeves/jackets

As i've mentioned in another post, i will be purchasing a turntable soon, but before i do i'll need to buy some inner sleeves.
It's been about 25 years since i've played my albums so i'm a litle out of the loop!
I do remember buying some rice paper sleeves, but i've been reading about poly sleeves being better protection.My concern is the chemical makeup of poly.I'm assuming its polyurethane.
As a cancer patient, i try to keep my life as chemical-free as i can so i don't know if the poly sleeves are safe to handle.
I want to hear from my fellow audiophiles first what you recommend before i buy. I see lots of vendors selling sleeves. I don't know which ones have the best quality. Are jacket covers usually poly too?

I also have questions about my VPI 16.5 regarding parts and upgrades, but i'll start a new post on that later.

Oh yeah, one more thing. I noticed some of the links on Vinyl FAQ no longer exist. Not sure how often the info is updated.

That's it for now.
