I too am very troubled by this "mine field" of products that encourage/cause cancer, part of me does not believe any of it but part of me still cannot dismiss it altogether. I am ER+ and they really seem to have it in for us, I used to like chocolate and ice-cream but however much I tell myself they wont do me any harm it has taken some of the pleasure out of them for me.
It would be worth bearing in mind that manufacturers selling a product will claim that their product is safe where as their rivals is not to increase revenues.
Also as Chick1 says, there are lots of people out there just making up theories to get publicity, most of whom don't really care if the theories are true or not, they just grab attention and get people to read the article.
I have also found that all neutral experts/authorities on the subject seem reluctant to give a conclusive answer, the best I have received is "no clear evidence one way or the other."
Sorry I cannot be more helpful, I suppose this is just another of the ways that BC continues to cast a long shadow over our lives.
