California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment Website
The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment has established a website – https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/ – to provide the public with information on chemicals, products and locations often associated with Proposition 65 warnings. These warnings inform Californians about their exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Visiting that website regularly will help you learn about these chemicals and how you can reduce your exposure to them.
