China made cookware not healthy ?

Hello,
I'm currently shopping for few items like ramekins, casseroles, cooking baking trays, and others.
I'm looking for cheaper stuff, since I'm a bargain shopper and I buy good stuff when it goes on sale. I'm guessing sooner or later most of my kitchen will be filled with European made cokware.

In the meantime I'm grabbing cheaper, made in China cookware. I know that mostly china means poorer quality, and I understand it, you get what you pay for, but shopping around I'm constantly reading comments about people refusing to buy China made cookware, saying that it is bad for your health.
At first I didn't read into it, but after 20 comments I'm starting to question myself, and I am starting to get a little bit scared on buying China made Cookware.

Anyone cares to elaborate on what I'm reading around on the net.
Is this really a health issue ?
Was I suckered into a paranoia ? :)
