California's 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.  Proposition 65 requires the Governor to publish, at least annually.  The most recent list can be found at

For your reference, I have provided the EPA matrix listing Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) Chemicals and their potential health effects.  A larger view can be seen by clicking on the matrix and then once it appears in its own windown, click it again for a full-resolution zoon. The associated diseases are detailed by the following abbreviations:
