Coffee and cancer warnings (in California)?

for the record, this was the NY Post's response to the California ruling...

"Relax, your morning (and afternoon) coffee is still safe: The California court order for cancer warnings at all coffee shops is all about the state’s odd laws, not science. Judge Elihu Berle’s diktat to nearly 100 chains, including Starbucks and 7-Eleven, aims to enforce a 1986 law (passed by one of those California ballot proposals) that ordered businesses with at least 10 employees to disclose any carcinogens and toxic chemicals in their products.

The substance at issue is acrylamide, large doses of which do cause cancer in lab rats. That’s why Golden State bureaucrats added it to their “warning required” list in 1990. But studies show that humans metabolize it very differently — and the amount in coffee (as well as potato chips, fries, breakfast cereal and more) is a thousand times less than what was fed to those rats.

Meanwhile, other studies suggest that drinking coffee reduces risks of prostate cancer, melanoma and other cancers. Overall, the International Agency for Research on Cancer found in 2016 that coffee is “unclassifiable” as a human carcinogen. So just enjoy your espresso — and ignore California’s bean-head legal system"
