  [in my view this is very good news. and i am wondering if there
  is any way to be proactive in the future with such paradoxical
  situations of business and unknown health risks, and liability.
  what if, 8 years ago, this issue could have been addressed in a
  preventative manner, while the issue is debated, just to be safe?
  so too, how to introduce new technologies with unknown risks, and
  instead of having companies and industries have to take an either-
  or stance, 'there are no health risks associated with technology
  x', that instead there could be a fuzzy area, like a warning, to
  make the issue public, and not an industry secret, where it rises
  to the level of conspiracy, hidden knowledge, etc. hopefully in
  the future a way to proactively address the negative impacts of
  technologies, and uncertainty can be employed which will not
  limit development of technologies, while also not stonewalling
  that they are benign to negative effects due to liability issues.
