First State Biomonitoring Program Established

California establishes the first statewide program to measure human exposure to toxic chemicals.

The California Environmental Contaminant Biomonitoring Program, the nation's first statewide effort to measure human exposure to toxic chemicals linked to diseases such as cancer and asthma, is signed by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Breast Cancer Fund and co-sponsor Commonweal worked for four years to establish the program. The bill was authored by Senate President pro Tem Don Perata and Sen. Deborah Ortiz.
