I'm still on vacation and not up on the latest news. But I couldn't help hearing the ridiculous story about potential cancer-causing granite counters. That's as stupid as the past rumor about underwire bras causing breast cancer. We're in Maine and we're surrounded by granite everything - fireplaces, house foundations, steps, street curbs, bridges, terraces, ... Here in Winter Harbor, most of the coastline is granite. If granite caused cancer, there would be no one left in the state. I'd worry more about the quality of your air than the health effects of granite countertops.
