My neoprene waist trimmer (sweet sweat) has a proposition 65 warning saying it could expose me to chemicals like: chloroprene, vinyl chloride, di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (dehp), should i be worried about getting cancer with this product?

Yes and No.: Here in California, the law requires Cancer Warning signs everywhere because EVERYTHING we eat, touch, breathe can cause cancer. That is the nature of life, everything on Earth can cause cancer... but the true question is, how likely is it to happen? For example, eating organic berries daily should be fine. Breathing the engine exhaust on the way to the grocer and back is likely more dangerous.
