Chances are you've got a bottle of Roundup on your garage shelf and it's definitely been sprayed on the majority of the crops you consume. But did you know that the World Health Organization named its active ingredient - glyphosate - as a possible carcinogenic?
Now, California will require Monsanto - and other companies that sell products that contain glyphosate - to include a warning label on any product that contains it. Under Proposition 65 California is required to publish a list of chemicals known carcinogens or cause other serious health issues. This move gives California consumers the tools they need to decide whether or not they want to use a chemical that could possibly make them sick.
But what about your state? Is it protecting you from the potential harm of this cancer causing product? Tell your state representatives that dangerous chemicals like glyphosate must come with warning labels. We have the right to know whether or not a product we purchase could do us harm.

Dear State Representative,
I want you to follow California’s example and file legislation demanding that Monsanto’s
glyphosate containing weedkiller come with a warning label in our state. Glyphosate have been named as a possible carcinogen by the WHO and customers should be warned before they purchase such dangerous chemicals. Please do the right thing.
