  • If you read the article it does not say cancer. It is a discoloration of the skin.

  • Be Careful where you read stuff. The Internet doesn't have all the answers non the less reliable and reputable answers... you are ok...just use the table for ergonomic purposes, if you don't use good posture, then you may have back problems....that is a fact. take CARE
