I found this link about the cancer warning. It apparently has to do with a consumer protection law passed in California.

Everything causes cancer. Heck, the air we breathe should have a warning label. I think they put those on everything so if sometime in an unspecified future they can say they warned you if you get something even if you have no idea where you got it. Wash the ball every so often and don't stick your mouth on it. I would figure you work out in clothes so that would also limit your skin exposure.

Maybe look at Gaiam? They sell lifestyle products geared towards healthy living (including organic homegoods) and fitness equipment. Their customer service section on their website even has a link to contact a product specialist with questions. You could ask them if their products meet what you are looking for.

I would look online and see what you can find. Sorry I don't have any specific recommendations but I often find a google search can help me figure out my options.

Resistance bands. You can get a set of decent ones for around $15, and they're incredibly versatile, store well, and more adaptable than equivalent dumbbells or weights.

I decided that since it is like 500 degrees outside lately, I would try to work out inside...somehow. So, I decided to get a yoga mat, and an exercise ball at Wal-Mart and planned on doing some online videos too. Well, I got home and realized that the ball had a warning label on the box that said at least one chemical in the ball has been known to cause cancer and birth defects/reproductive problems. I know it's probably not likely to affect me, but I don't want to be the rare case that it /does.
Well, I took it back and thought I could get a different brand or even exchange it for an entirely different product.
Nothing (well, aside from the yoga mats and maybe one other item). EVERYTHING -I mean, even a weight loss tracking BOOK- had the warning.

So, if not the brand at Wal-Mart, where is somewhere that has decent, safe, and affordable work out equipment?
And while I'm on the topic, does anyone know why that product even has those chemicals in it to begin with? I'm just curious!

Thanks! emoticon
