Default Yellow is bad

Guys I kid you not I was watching the news and now anything coloured yellow is bad . Figures as soon as I jump ship from makita cordless drills to dewalt this happens lol .
They were saying that there's some PCB in the colour yellow in most plastics , and ideally you should not touch them . I was wondering why I was always feeling like crap all the time ?
It may have been other things like paint but I can't remember . I could care less , but I thought you guys might find it amusing .
Just like apples gave you cancer one time , next it's dish soap

I have painted the cabinets in my shop green .... Pretty sure it is environmental green or at least that's what I tell everyone. That way I'm " IN". Just hope the environmentalist don't check out the electrical consumption of my shop. I have a number of Dewalt tools ........ Hmmmm........ I guess I had better slap on a coat of environmental green paint on those.

I'm pretty sure that won't stop me from using my 2 Dewalt routers and a drill but thanks for the warning.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Listen to the wife. Go down to yellow. Color Therapy - Chromotherapy - Healing with Color

I paint my tools yellow, from whatever color they were. Yellow makes them easier to find in the sawdust, makes the shop seem brighter, makes the shop seem more cheerful, and last, but definitely not least, painting them yellow stopped the two sons from 'borrowing' my tools. Since I started painting them haven't lost a tool.
