Oh...dear I am sure anything you use will probably say the same thing :(
unfortunately if it works well it probably causes cancer or something
I love E6000 glue but just never use it one anything that a child would use and I also always use a toothpick and wear a mask when working with any glues

Its in a silver tube, and they sell it at craft stores. I thought I had the name right, but it may be called EC600. I was at a craft show this weekend, and a girl who also made jewelry told me that its cancerous, and that it says it on the tube.

Do a little research into the ingredients before you totally freak out. After looking into it a little more, I haven't been convinced not to use it yet. Plenty of things are carcinogenic in our daily lives, but we continue to use them in moderation without panic.

This is the chemical in E6000 that's troublesome, if it helps:
and this is the material safety data sheet that goes into lengthy detail about the health concerns/
