You are lying. The worst chemical used in some types of solar panels is cadmium, which is toxic but hardly lethal. NiCd batteries have been used for ages without anyone being "instantly killed."

That said, there are recycling programs for solar panels so the cadmium is reused and does not contaminate the environment. There isn't anything more ecologically unfriendly with solar panel production, than with any other modern manufacturing process.
