Lead-tin interconnects, like the ones seen on this Intel "Prescott" processor, are a thing of the past. (Thumbnail and image source: Chipworks)

> "The funny part about the signs is that according to the state of California, almost everything can cause cancer"

Almost everything does cause a large enough dose. There are over 1,000 different chemicals found naturally in a cup of coffee, for instance, and roughly 2/3 of them are carcinogenic in large doses.

BBQ'd meat is an especially famous cancer causing agent. That's why grilling (more proper term) is almost never used in cooking meat anymore today.

Anything that can be considered a free radical causes cancer, that is exactly what cancer is. Any atom that doesn't have a full outer shell of electrons causes cancer because it attaches to other atoms within a cell and then changes the cell. The only atoms that DO NOT potentially cause cancer would be those in the Noble Gas family (i.e. helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon... etc.)

I wouldn't be surprised if those caused cancer by some indirect route by isolating something that should have reacted. Or something. :-)

P.S. - I had cancer (about 25 years ago and counting!)
