Another reason "steel is real"?

Apparently, "plastic is metastatic." The nanotube carbon fiber construction of such things as the fork on my Moots, and the BMC higher-end bikes, is apparently carcinogenic. Though, I can't imagine too many parts of a bicycle that you could mince up, inject into a mouse, and not expect bad things to happen.
