CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The Proposition was intended by its authors to protect California citizens and the State's drinking water sources from chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and to inform citizens about exposures to such chemicals. Under the statute, a person in the course of doing business cannot expose an individual to a chemical known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity without first giving a clear and reasonable warning to an individual. Proposition 65 requires the state to maintain and update a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. "Progesterone" and "Estrogen" are on the list. According to the State of California, Progesterone and Estrogen, under certain circumstances, can cause cancer. Nearly all of the studies upon which these declarations are based involved "progesterone" and "estrogen" manufactured by pharmaceutical companies, NOT bioidentical hormones. We agree that NON-bioidentical hormones can and do cause cancer, but NOT bioidentical hormones, which are identical to the hormones created by the human body. Nevertheless, we are required to make the following statement to California residents about all our products that contain progesterone and/or estrogen:
"This product can expose you to chemicals including progesterone and estrogen, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov."
