Default 9CAP cancer warning

I have a 9CAP, just got it and saw the health warning on the box.

Can a 9CAP really give you cancer??!!?

Yes, in these days, even the benign act of breathing will give you cancer.

Yes you might get cancer if you eat more than 2 9C's at one sitting.

It says "Wash hands after handling and before serving. Be sure to serve cooked to at least medium well or, preferably, well done. Sucking on or playing with the packaging material may cause asphyxiation. Styrofoam is a hazard to the environment. Be careful of that thing or you could poke your eye out. Hard hat use is required if product is held over your head. Radio wave propagation can cause infertility. Squinting real hard to read this absurdly small label could cause blindness. Removal of this label is punishable under penalty of law. Do not run with scissors while cutting off label."

Standard boilerplate warning to the effect: "This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects (or other reproductive harm).

It's on everything these days.

It only causes cancer if you use Hitec or JR servos with it.

Be lucky you don't live here (CA.)! Way too many regulations, taxes, etc. Although one of the most beutiful states. But remember cancer spreads. If you don't stop it first.

Not if you eat some California prunes before using it

"This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects (or other reproductive harm).
It's only the warning label itself that's is dangerous. Everything its stuck on is perfectly safe.

I think the keyboard you're using came with those same precautions, maybe you should put some gloves on

If you take out the battery the rest of the TX is safe to eat. I use the sticks as chop sticks for the smaller parts. I eat mine tar tar. I can't stand the burnt plastic smell.
