Abstract/Contents:"Last year proposition 65 was overwhelmingly approved by the voters. The proposition was called "the clean water act". The stated goal of the measure was to protect our water from potential contamination by cancer causing chemicals and to inform the public when they are exposed to carcinogens. The list of chemicals that will fall under this legislation is growing and will hit very close to home for all citizens of this state. The great harm our government is trying to protect us from is cancer. No one knows for sure what causes cancer. The research that caused the stir over the artificial sweetener saccharin was based on dosage that was equal to a human being consuming 800 cans of diet soda pop per day. The represenative of EPA said that they really don't know what causes cancer and Dr. Aames' research is causing a re-evaluation of the EPA's study of toxic substances. The only increase in cancer in the past forty years is skin and lung cancer."
