It would be nice to have real data!

I stumbled across this article as I was searching for information on negative health effects of matches, as I also recently purchased a box of Diamond brand matches with the CA warning label. I am newly pregnant with my first child and if matches really can cause birth defects I would like to know about it! I would say I use about 4 matches most days of the week to light candles, and this label made me consider giving up candles, but as I can find ZERO information linking routine use of matches to birth defects, I suppose I'll continue as before.
