Exactly. It seems ironic that people are arguing over the safety of handling Chinese plastic in a venue where everyone (who isn't using a touchscreen) is typing their arguments on a keyboard made of Chinese plastic.Everyday we touch chinese products. Almost every thing we touch is from China. So cubes won't be a problem.
Nothings probably gonna happen if it hasn't already. Though, I would recommend using a face mask while modding anything made of plastic that way. lol.
Has someone in your family gotten sick because of the toxic chemicals in toys? Is this the motivation behind your posts?...anyone else in my family...
If the mods saw my post as irrelevant then I'm not as clever in my posting than I thought and the removal of my post was reasonable and I have no reason to fight against them. Though this is the point I was trying to make with fewer words. Perhaps this reworded version will be more appealing.IEDIT: It appears that Waffle's post has been removed though it is quite relevant to this discussion. The point was that the amount of poison changes the need for worry. I.E. small amounts of arsenic won't kill you or even have adverse effects, but in large amounts you're as good as dead.
The reason I posted this was because I actually modded my SS 6x6 the night before this thread started, so it freaked me out a bit. After more research, I think I'll be ok, but in future mods, I'll try to be more careful. There's no reason to take a health risk for a hobby like cubing.What about modding a cube and breathing in the plastic?
Would a stickerless zhanchi being solved underwater be carcinogenic?Small pieces are an obvious choking hazard and would probably have a minimum age issue with stupid law suits in the U.S. but the plastic is probably only carcinogenic if you store your cubes in your water bottle.
