Proposed level is 1100 micrograms No Significant Risk Level (NSRL) to glyphosate ( an ingredient in RoundUp), on the State’s Prop 65 carcinogen list. Studies show 1100 micrograms daily to be far too high an exposure level. In comparison chemical 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p -dioxin (TCDD), also on the Prop 65 list has a NSRL Of .000005 micrograms per day. Because glyphosate has been shown to bioaccumulate, and has been shown in the parts per trillion, to increase the growth of breast cancer cells, the reality is that there is no safe level.
