SOURCE: Causes cancer?

It's a result of Proposition 65 (here's a wiki page about it) a California law requiring that sticker on any product containing lead, among other things.

Your GPS has electrical components which are attached with solder, a tin/lead alloy. Since it contains lead, the law says that it must bear that warning.

If you don't eat it, you personally should be fine.

If you recycle it instead of throwing it in the trash, the groundwater should be fine.

SOURCE: Is this valve safe to use? It has a cancer warning label on it for the state of california. What about other states?

Be sensible. In any event, not a chance of backing into your house water.

Think a bit about this absurdity. Cancer warnings are so overblown and abused - its no longer possible to know the real and more obvious threats apart from those with no practical threat whatsoever. California is one of those absurd states which has thus blurred the practical usefulness of these warnings....tell me that is not whats most dangerous :/

I need the instructions to assemble my retro step stool


Hello, Debra -

You do not state if you purchased your step stool new or second hand. If you purchased it new and still have the sales receipt, I suggest you return to the store (or contact the online seller) and ask for the assembly instructions.

The image you attached looks like a step stool manufactured by Cosco. Does the step stool have a label with a maker name and model number printed on it? If it is a Cosco and if you can find a model number, you may be able to obtain assembly instructions here:
https://www.coscoproducts.com/eng/instructions

That web page also has a link to contact the company if you do not have a model number.

Best wishes.

What are the symptoms for bowel cancer?


constipation, red blood in the motion, black blood in the motion , pains ,cramps
a doctor has all the answers so go to your doctor and have the test done
early detection means a very high success rate
put it off and the odds go right down

Is there a risk of cancer while using this product? It says so on the valve for california. Why only california?


Well california has the most strict environmental laws and always errors to the side of caution. Emissions is where they are most stringent. I would tend to walk on their findings and operate accordingly.

It says on the insert the product contains chemicals and lead known to cause cancer and birth defects. wash hands after handling product. is it safe to use. I think not.


This sounds like the California warnings placed on many items. Assemble the product, and use according to manufacturer recommendations. It will work fine for you.

Where can i purchase the rubber treads for the steps on a cosco step stool

http://www.coscoproducts.com/eng/Contact-Us


I'm guessing this is an older stool you have that you need to repair. the model number you provided doesn't ring any bells at Cosco.

Give them a call or send them an email and see if they can help. You're other choice is to look at a hardware store for something to use to replace the worn treads. Good luck.
