... you can use rubber cement on the blade and water-based glue on the rubbers. Once the rubber cement is dried, the VOC is gone.

For gluing old rubbers, I often don't bother with glue on the rubbers. Just some glue on the blade, let dry and attach.

If there's a difference, I didn't notice. I've been doing this for a long time and haven't noticed ill effects.

I've done this a few times too, it certainly works. Be careful when using it in torunaments that checks for VOCs though, VOCs have a habit of hanging around, and the detector is rediculously sensitive.

I'm not that convinced that water really is that harmful. Especially if you take the organic solvents from the rubber cements into account.
All varnishes we can buy and use for our blades are more or less designed to preserve wood from outside conditions. Normally, we have water and not organic solvents like pentane, heptane or polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in our athmosphere.
