Some top laser printers called office polluters

Link to article at SFGate.com
The worst printers released amounts of ultra-fine particles rivaling plumes of secondhand smoke. When inhaled, the particles -- tiny flecks between 100 and 1,000 times smaller than the thickness of a human hair -- can work their way deep into the lung, leading to heart and lung disease, scientists say. Laser printers in the study were manufactured by Hewlett-Packard, Toshiba, Ricoh and Canon. All use toner, a powder used instead of ink.
Frightening news for those of us that always thought Microsoft products were the most life threatening.
Probably need to keep an eye on this issue.
