    I recently bought the Step @ Home and Firewalking loops and became worried when the boxes of these 2 products had cancer warning signs. I contact the company Altus that manufactures them but, the still don't reply and it's been a week already. I am concerned and was thinking on returning the products since there is no feedback from them.

    The warning you see is because of a state law in California that requires companies to prove a product doesn't cause cancer or you have to include the warning label that you see. Since it is virtually impossible to prove a product doesn't cause cancer, it's just a lot simpler and safer from a legal perspective to include the warning label.

    We live in such a litigious society, it's simply ridiculous! But yes, I understand why those labels need to be there.

    Well, if my step causes cancer, then I guess I'll just have to deal with it! Besides, eating healthy and exercising helps ward off cancer, right? So I guess were even.
