It's a well-known fact that research causes cancer in rats :-)

More seriously, toner probably is carcinogenic simply because it's a fine 
powder. And like flour or fine sawdust, a cloud of toner could be 
explosive. 

Which to me means you avoid making clouds of the stuff. But when I've 
taken toner cartridges apart, you seem to get less loose toner around 
than when you clean up an old laser printer.
