Brush your teeth and die of cancer?

From this story:
"These products produce low levels of chloroform, but that adds up over time. The amount of gas formed is very low but I think the key thing is that we just don't know what the effects are. However, manufacturers do have to list triclosan on their ingredients, so if consumers are worried the best advice is to avoid products with the chemical."

The chloroform gas might be real, but this sounds like a scare piece with very little solid evidence behind it. Would it be possible to determine if the chloroform gas from toothpaste caused a cancer when the gas might also be created by other activities?
