Does Valeo Neoprene Waist Trimmer Belts Cause Cancer?

I m a teen and I wanted to know if valeo neoprene waist trimmer belts can cause cancer? It has a very small warning label that says: this product contains chemicals know to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects and or other reproductive harm. I have used it for a month and I m having trouble with bowel movements. Could this be some type of cancer? I m really worried.

Hi, theoretically any synthetic material can cause skin disease. you wont develop them in weeks or months. chronic exposure for years together is needed for any disease like cancer. Trouble with bowel movements can be due to infection and is not due to the belt you used. visit a physician, and you will be free of your doubt. Hope this helped.
