California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has announced that it will add glyphosate — the herbicide chemical in Roundup weed killer — to a list of cancer causing substances.

What’s the Problem?
June 26, 2017 – In addition to glyphosate being added to California’s list of potential carcinogens, Roundup and all other products that contain the herbicide will be required to carry a warning stating that it is known to cause cancer. The changes are scheduled to take effect on July 7, 2017, according to USA Today.
Monsanto sued OEHHA in 2016 when the agency initially attempted to add glyphosate to Proposition 65. The judge ruled against Monsanto in that case, but the company immediately appealed. If Monsanto were to emerge victorious in the appeal, Roundup would not be included on the list of carcinogens.
Prop 65 requires California officials to publish a list of chemicals that have been linked to birth defects, cancer or other serious potential health risks. The list is updated annually, and currently includes over 800 chemicals. The proposition also requires businesses to alert Californian consumers that the product contains significant amounts of dangerous chemicals.
