diciembre 10, 2020, the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee (DARTIC) had a meeting to determine which of the 22 chemicals they would advise the CA EPA's Office of Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) to be considered, at a level of high, medium or low, to be placed on the Prop 65 list as an endocrine disruptor. As we requested two years ago, Glyphosate and salts were finally up for consideration, so of course, we needed to present.
Glyphosate has already been listed on the Prop 65 list as a carcinogen, however, Monsanto sued the CA EPA and prevented the products containing glyphosate from having a warning labeling, such as Roundup and contaminated foods. They continue to sue to have glyphosate removed from the Prop 65 list, claiming that because the federal EPA did not find it carcinogenic (they only reviewed industry funded studies) that it was wrongly listed. Therefore, having glyphosate placed on the Prop 65 list as an endocrine disruptor would keep it in the forefront of the public's attention, require it to have a warning label, and possibly lead to a declined use or banned in countries around the world.
With the support of scientists and experts and their amazing work, we assembled a presentation. You may use the following presentation for your city staff, school principal or acquaintances that may be using glyphosate herbicides like Roundup or Ranger Pro. Natural Resources Defense Council commented in favor of listing glyphosate as an endocrine disruptor on the Prop 65 list. Mom Across America was the only representative on the consumers side who made a presentation in favor of glyphosate being given a HIGH priority for consideration to be placed on the Prop 65 list as an endocrine disruptor.Read more
