100,000 Homes Worthless?

There are reports that imported Chinese drywall may be causing health problems.  This could cause up to 100,000 homes to be demolished because of contamination, according to a post on Realtor.org (here), reporting on a New York Times article by Leslie Wayne.

I have one question.  Couldn't these houses be gutted and rebuilt from the frame up?  Are the cabinets and appliances contaminated?  Bathroom fixtures?  Plumbing, wiring and lighting fixtures?  Maybe total demolition isn't needed.
