Do they not get that those warning are a joke to everybody else in the world who has to read all the warning about what the state of California thinks causes “insert disease here” ? Honestly, what are they achieving at this point ?

That disease is always cancer, and in California, everything causes cancer.

It's a common convenience store game - "guess what strange additive is in this bag of X that causes California to think it's a carcinogen."

They seem to have a strong opinion on what causes brith defects as well, is it insensitive to call those diseases ? Shiet. It confused the hell out of me the first time I saw it as a kid, like why only California ? What do they know that we don’t ? I never got answers.
