So, it's up to you to determine if you should change your eating habits.

This is true but it is said to be carciogenic to consumers because of its appearance in foodstuff for human consumption (e.g. crushed or ground chilli).

Wonder how much of this stuff we consumed before July 2003? That's what I would be more concerned about!
