While I agree in principle, there's is a happy medium, and California is nowhere near it. When you get too ridiculous with warnings about everything - a strict interpretation of Prop 65 would literally require a warning about the air, you get so overloaded that all warnings become meaningless.

You do, at least, have the internet. Google is the sum of all human knowledge. It's a lot easier to do a little research and get info that'sm issing than to dig through a mountain of useless info for what matters.
