I am not saying you should live in a bubble.
But I still say one should use a whole lot of protection when using these 
new chemicals.
Look at Agent Orange, for example. The physical problems from exposure to 
that chemical are coming out now. Lots of bad effects. I will not go into 
the details but they are well documented.
Sure I trust the assurances of the large corporations and institutions, just 
like I trust the assurances of the tobacco companies.
Use the CA and other chemicals.
I do.
But protect yourself.
