Cal EPA to Label Monsanto’s Roundup ‘Carcinogenic’

The California EPA plans to label the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup a chemical “known to cause cancer.”

According to a notice of intent published by the California EPA’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, glyphosate, a widely used herbicide, will soon likely be required to carry a warning under the state’s Proposition 65, which mandates the state publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harms. It also requires businesses to provide a “clear and reasonable” warning before exposing people to chemicals on the list.

France banned the sale of Roundup in June, despite Monsanto’s assurances that the weed-killer is safe to humans.
