What is the Prop 65 warning?
You may have noticed that some of our supplements have a Prop 65 warning on the label that contains the following message:
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including lead, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
Prop 65 warnings are seen throughout California in many different places, including restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, schools, hospitals, and on a wide variety of consumer products. These warnings are provided pursuant to a California labeling law called Proposition 65 (or Prop 65 for short), which is meant to notify individuals in California of potential exposures to Prop 65-listed chemicals. Prop 65 is a right-to-know law; it does not ban the sale of any products that contain these chemicals.
What susbstances are listed under Prop 65?
More than 900 chemicals have been listed under California Prop 65 as carcinogens, reproductive toxicants, or both. Examples of these chemicals include lead, cadmium, and mercury. Certain listed chemicals like lead are widely distributed throughout the environment in air, soil, water, and rocks. As a result, these types of chemicals are often naturally found in commonly eaten foods, even though these chemicals are not intentionally added.
