Can warning labels be required on sugary foods? California's Proposition 65 provides a legal pathway for cancer warnings to be placed on various chemicals in the environment, and emerging research shows that sugar may well be carcinogenic. In this presentation/workshop, the attorney will present a case for the inclusion of sugar into the Prop. 65 list of chemicals that may cause cancer or reproductive harm. We will cover an overview of Prop. 65, the research available vs. the standard of proof, and potential public health benefits as well as practical difficulties in making the case for enforcement.
