The following scientific study, published in a peer reviewed scientific journal in 1991, is the best evidence that pine shavings are not safe as bedding for small animals.  This study found that mice kept on pine shavings had enlarged livers, abnormal immune responses, and reduced reproductive rates.  When mice were given a choice of beddings, they avoided pine shavings whenever possible.
