California EPA to label Roundup herbicide as ‘carcinogenic’

The California Environmental Agency has announced its intentions to have
the active ingredient of Roundup—glyphosate—labelled as an agent “known to
the state to cause cancer.” In the upcoming months, it will be added to a
list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, and other
reproductive harm under the action of Proposition 65. Once this happens,
businesses will have to provide "clear and reasonable" warnings before
exposing people to Roundup (and other glyphosate products).
