Everything in your state contains a chemical that is known to cause cancer and birth defects.
What I'd like to know is what exactly that chemical is? I see this warning on just about every product I pick up off the shelf in a store. What gives? Some lables say it's "lead", but most don't specify what else in the product is toxic.
Most Americans were at the very least annoyed recently when childrns toys that were made and imported from China were found to contain trace amounts of lead in them. Yet when a product is specifically lables with a warning, no one seems to care.
What I'd like to know is: are these lables legitimate on all products or are they placed there as a "cover your butt" type of move for the company? I was out last week looking to replace some fishing lures and other fishing gear when I suddenly noticed that every package I picked up had this warning on it. Why does everything, including nylon rope and fillet knives, contain lead? How is this possible? Why is it that it's only harmful in the state of California and no where else? If it's so harmful, them why are these chemicals being used in products that we touch and use? I know that lead is harmful, but I never realized that something like a fillet knife or a nylon stringer would contain lead.
